Victor Clube and Bill Napier are not members of some whacked out "Doomsday Cult" as I have been accused of being after first presenting the idea that the Earth is facing a date with a swarm of cometary bodies over 13 years ago.

Until recently, the astronomical mainstream was highly critical of Clube and Napier's giant comet hypothesis.

Clube and Napier tell us that an asteroid in a Taurid orbit, carrying 100,000 megatons of impact energy, coming out of the night sky, would be visible in binoculars for only about six hours before impact.

Clube and Napier suggest that what was seen was the impacting of one or more asteroids on the surface of the Moon, 800 years ago similar to what happened on Jupiter back in 1994.

It is suggested that the periodicity of these events relates to galactic cycles and there is good evidence for this view presented by Victor Clube in his book The Cosmic Winter. (You can really forget the nonsense going around about "Planet Nibiru" and "Project Camelot"). He suggests that galactic tides induct giant comets into our Solar system and it is their disintegration products which interact strongly and directly with the Earth with variable results at different (and very frequent!) periods which results in the variations in the geological record. Clube demonstrates that the breaking up of a giant comet produces a wide range of debris from objects 10 km across, to hundreds or thousands of 1 km sized bodies, to multiple swarms of sub-kilometer sized bodies. Many of these bodies have sooty, black surfaces making them almost impossible to see and many of them are in an orbit very similar to the Taurid meteor streams, though a few may be in an orbit rotated about 90 degrees. Clube posits that many (if not most or all) of the asteroids in the Solar system split from a giant comet (or many of them) thousands or tens of thousands of years ago, and it is the streams of debris that pose the most serious and immediate threats to our planet.

...
Clube suggests that the iridium anomaly may, therefore, be a big red herring. He notes: "...it is interesting to speculate whether, had a volcanic source of iridium been known in 1980, a meteorite impact would have been suggested" by the Alvarezes?
Probably not.
So, that was probably a good thing because it at least drew press attention to the matter since Clube also points out that there is an impressive amount of evidence that the extinction event was not just a process of evolutionary change and decay.
...
Clube presents the evidence that this extinction event was an episode of bombardment of many, dozens, hundreds, thousands of cometary fragment and/or meteorite type bodies, some of them large, liberating copious amounts of meteorite dust in the Terran atmosphere, many of them exploding overhead in rains of fire. These swarms would be "swimming" in streams of comet dust - tons of it - which would also be loading the atmosphere and precipitating onto the earth over months and years.
...
Clube proposes that the Earth itself is a storehouse of information about its interactions with the Galaxy, and that it is the Galaxy itself, and Earth's position in it, that drives the cycles of extinctions mainly because the cycles of events best fit known galactic cycles.
...
Clube mentions the companion star hypothesis briefly, noting that "Certainly the companion-star hypothesis adopts the central mechanism of the galactic one, namely the creation of comet showers through regular comet cloud disturbances. He then dismisses this as facing "insuperable problems. The "insuperable problems" are the proposed orbital periods for the hypothesized companion star and his idea that there would be far more cratering if the motive mechanism was a companion star. He may be entirely correct and his theory of galactic tides and comet birth in the cold, dark reaches of space certainly deals with the main elements of what we know about our celestial environment. As he notes:
...
For them, temporal power takes precedence over the fate of the species. (Clube, The Cosmic Winter)
Famed astronomer, Fred Hoyle, friend and colleague of Clube, made some interesting remarks in his book: "The Origin of the Universe and the Origin of Religion" along the same lines.
