Cold killed the dinosaurs?

Reader trashes researcher's claim

page delimiter

26 Apr 10 - Last week, British researchers claimed that a sudden drop in sea temperature more than 137 million years ago was the first step towards the dinosaur extinction.  (See Dinosaurs wiped out by sudden cooling, not comet)

In a not-so-subtle attempt to pin the blame on CO2, Gregory Price of Plymouth University, who led the study, said the sudden cooling in the Atlantic Gulf Stream came when the Earth was in a ''greenhouse'' climate very similar to today's.

Today I received this very insightful email from a reader.

     Dr. Felix,

     I would like to add a comment about the assertion by British Researchers that a
     decrease in global temperature led to the mass extinction 137 million years ago.

     Most pointedly; " Gregory Price of Plymouth University, who led the study, said
     thesudden cooling in the Atlantic Gulf Stream came when the Earth was in a
     ''greenhouse'' climate very similar to today's."

     The Atlantic Gulf Stream did not exist 137 million years ago.

     South America was still attached to Africa, and the gap between North America
     and Africa was about 900 miles.

     I wish these researchers were actually experts in their fields, and competent
     scientists, instead of professors looking for funding and their next paycheck.

     Warmest personal regards,
     Steve Grathwohl
