I tend to agree with the thesis presented on TV that they took their small boat with them if only to provide shelter against the wind.
Yes, I would have too. I wonder if we'll find these folks in the DNA somewhere up there?
yup , .. ( a better quip soon )
There is documented evidence of tremendous icedams breaking in the scablands of Washington State and in the Great lakes, sending water down the Columbia Gorge and the Mississippi River, respectively.
I hadn't heard of the Antarctic Meltdown, but that also could account for evidence of 1000 foot waves throughout the world.
Look up "Milutin Milankovich", astrophysicist, at the NASA website. Read all about his research, and how over 50 years of collected data supports it.
And then laugh your ass off the next time someone starts fretting about this stuff or screaming about SUVs.
Not much in the way of fires:
The transient heat flash from the fireball was felt by the witnesses at Vanavara, and apparently within about 30 km it was strong enough to ignite small temporary fires in the forest and singe tree bark. From: 1908 SIBERIA EXPLOSION: Reconstructing an Asteroid Impact from ...
The evidence suggets that the Tunguska object exploded before it impacted the ground, or the effect on the surface itself would have been much more severe, as it was 12,900 years ago in Canada.
They are not even sure it was a meteor in the classic sense, some say it was a large ball of plasma energy.
The Cycle of Cosmic Catastrophes:
Flood, Fire, and Famine in
the History of Civilization

Climatologist Andrew Weaver of the University of Victoria says the notion that an extraterrestrial impact caused the Younger Dryas "requires an extraordinarily huge leap of faith." He says there were many climate swings during the last glacial cycle; the mini-ice age was simply the last of them and does not require an extraterrestrial explanation.Actually, he's dead wrong.

Question - what recorded blast started wildfires? Every high temperature blast, that I have seen record of, cooked (sometimes to charcoal) things exposed to them, yet I see no references to fire resulting from them.:') The flash from a nuke starts fires; such large impacts release similar amounts of energy, and will indeed start fires. Also, the ejecta from the crater are hot, and where they land they can start fires. Massive fires resulted from the Chicxulub impact at the K-T boundary.
One analyst suggested it's almost as though a female gave birth to cubs deep in a den while all the world above was destroyed along with the Cheetahs running around. A massive widespread tsunami would do the trick every single time (provided these animals preferred very flat alluvial plains for their habitat).
And that he is ~ wrong, wrong, wrong ~ the Lesser Dryas affected North America (almost exclusively) ~ and interrupted the normal ice cap meltdown cycle that would otherwise have happened.
It is obvious to any sensitive human that Women, Children, Members of Minority Groups, and the Gay and Lesbian Community suffered the most when Halliburton's shoddily constructed ice dam let go without warning.
If Hillary is not elected, this could easily reoccur, driving gasoline prices beyond the ability of illegal aliens to pay.

But cannot interfere with a Woman's Right to build one.
I've been listening to you for that whole time. You are one of the few remaining islands of sanity. Please continue.
I've read that when the fresh water ice dam broke at Hudson bay that the water rushed out then the humungus ice sheet covering the lake broke in half and it too rushed into Hudson Bay causing outrageous tsunamis. The water level worldwide was raised by a foot overnight.
Al gore knows nothing first hand. He relies on Chicken Little to tell him all things bearing on science.
