Re: Hell Creek -- MYSTERY SOLVED: How the dinos died!. :o)

    Of whether the ozone layer was damaged or removed, David Marjanovic

    "Probably it was. The impact must have created large amounts of nitric
and blasted them far upwards. Should destroy the ozone layer immediately
according to apparently unpublished calculations. :-} BTW, nitrogen dioxide
(and the monoxide becomes dioxide pretty soon) is deeply reddish-brown
[FREEZE], while dinitrogen monoxide = laughing gas is a powerful greenhouse
gas [BAKE]. :-)"

    In that case, the mystery is solved!  The dinosaurs died laughing!  :-o

    Sorry, I couldn't resist.  ;o)
