Re: Report Sez Volcanic Gases Killed The Dinosaurs
However, on whether the Deccan traps heated the climate or cooled it off,
I'd agree with you that one would expect it to get hot, but maybe it got
cold instead. I'd actually expect it to do some of both. It's just
that the climate record we just saw evidence about says it got cold, not
hot. That was just one piece of mussel evidence, however.
I repeat: we don't only expect, we actually know what actually happened. It
got hotter. http://dml.cmnh.org/2003Dec/msg00092.html
