I assume that everyone has heard about the
new "Journal of geology" papers as at
Burn Paper A new day at the Cosmic Tusk
As far as the start of the Younger Dryas and the
uncertainties of science are concerned, there is:
Levac, E., Sandercombe, S. and Chmura, G.L., 2018.
The Younger Dryas in palynological records from
the northern Northwest Atlantic: Does the terrestrial
record lag the marine and air records?.
Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology,
"Sea-surface and air temperatures started cooling
250 and 110 years before the start of the YD,
hence there is a 140 years delay between ocean
"Vegetation reversals in N. America do not
represent the start of cool conditions."
How can an impact, no matter how powerful, have
started cooling Earth centuries before it happened?
This and a lot of other fine-grained inconsistencies
constantly give me heretical doubts about what
should be a quite appealing and simple explanation
of puzzling Quaternary events.

Besides, correlation does not imply causation.
