The Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis

Count me among those who find the evidence for the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis to be more convincing than the evidence marshaled by the opponents of this hypothesis, a scientific controversy recently summed up in Science News.

Previous discussion of the issue here and here. A discussion of the contemporaneous Clovis Culture is here.

so in theory, we could rapidly return to the ice age, perhaps a comet impact or what was the cause of Younger Dyas

Whether YD Impact Hypothesis is correct or not, we could absolutely return to an ice age rapidly with an ET impact.

what kind of impact could cause global cooling on a YD scale?

could somehow climate scientists engineer global cooling based on theories to explain YD? to counteract global warming
