Clearly, this was Bush's fault.

And haliburton, too.

Tree rings show that vegetation growth slowed down in around 207BC, possibly because of the “nuclear winter” effect of dust blotting out the sun.

So did this happen after Tunguska, as well?

Kerry will find a way to make this Bushs' fault.

That's interesting. Never heard of that. Sounds plausible.

I wonder if anyone there had a plan.

If it's not global warming, it's nuclear winter. We're doomed.

"may have witnessed"

Conversely, they may not have. :~)

Well... no.
No trace has been found at Tunguska of any remnants of the object, that I know of. The conclusion is that the object "vaporized" and no traces struck earth.

Sorry, Tunguska was an air burst, albeit a very spectacular one.

Can you imagine if something similar were to happen today, especially over a populated area?

They think the Russian hit was an air burst or glancing blow. The object didn't hit the earth, just the shock wave. Its the impact that throws back up the dust. Because of that there was no large scale blockage of the sun.

Not only would trees and homes have been flattened for many miles by the blast, but the local climate would have changed for years afterwards.

What should this be chalked up to????
Ignorance of journalists???
