A 2008 paper in AGU’s Geophysical Research Letters presents
an alternative interpretation of ice core evidence to that
discussed in “[meteorite-list] Comet smashes triggered ancient
famine ???” can be found in:

This paper is discussed in “536 AD and all that” at:

http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/2008/03/536-ad-and-all-that/

and “Comments on: 536 AD and all that” at:

http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/2008/03/536-ad-and-all-that/feed/

It should be interesting to how these differences of opinions
are resolved in the future.
