George Howard has been maintaining an excellent clearing house for research into the Younger Dryas, with his blog ‘The Cosmic Tusk’. It’s hard to stay objective in the YD impact debates, nearly impossible if you are one of the participants. And yet George has done a very good job of presenting current research from both sides of the aisle. But now he’s come down off the objective fence, and jumped into the fray with both feet.
George, along with David Kimmel, Alan West, and James P. Kennett, are headed to a meeting of American Quaternary Association, at the University of Wyoming, in Laramie, Wyoming, August 12-15, 2010. And they are going there to tell the world about a New Method to Produce Nanodiamonds from Research into the Younger Dryas Impact event.
Heck, that’s only one of the posters from the event. There’ll be many others. New paradigms are wondrous things. Shift happens.
