Scientist argues that volcanoes, not meteorite, killed dinosaurs
Volcanic activity in modern-day India, not an asteroid, may have killed the dinosaurs, according to a new study.

Tens of thousands of years of lava flow from the Deccan Traps, a volcanic region near Mumbai in present-day India, may have spewed poisonous levels of sulfur and carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and caused the mass extinction through the resulting global warming and ocean acidification, the research suggests.

The findings, presented Wednesday here at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union, are the latest volley in an ongoing debate over whether an asteroid or volcanism killed off the dinosaurs about 65 million years ago in the mass die-off known as the K-T extinction.

"Our new information calls for a reassessment of what really caused the K-T mass extinction," said Gerta Keller, a geologist at Princeton University who conducted the study.

True and the volcanic activity was caused by the galactic pulse or super wave from the center of our milky way.

NEWS FLASH........

Scientists don't have a F'n clue about anything and yet people still hang on every word while the theories are changed over and over again.

I don't believe a word these idiots say, in most cases they are GUESSING. I wish I got paid big bucks to sit around all day and guess about stuff.

If it was meteorite we would see craters all over the place that was left behind
