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.
The drop was so severe that numerous species of dinosaur previously living in warm, shallow seas, land and swamps would have died out.
“We now believe that they died out gradually and it is very possible that this could have been caused by a series of climatic changes," said Price.
"The drop in temperature is thought to have occurred because high levels of CO2 were in the atmosphere which caused global temperatures to rise and polar ice to melt – a phenomenon currently predicted for Earth."
This is silly. I agree that
the dinosaurs were wiped out by climate change
Carbon dioxide levels do not
drive climate, they RESPOND to climate. The
Think of a bottle of homemade
beer exploding if it gets too warm. That's
First comes the warming. Then
comes the rise in CO2.
