What Killed The Dinosaurs

By Dr. Sol Adoni

What Killed the Dinosaurs?

The prominent THEORY is an Asteroid

Many scientists don’t agree with this theory for many reasons.

Lots of life survived such as small mammals and dating of the asteroid crater puts it 300 thousand years before the dinosaurs died.

So why did the Mass Extinction of Life at end of Cretaceous Period happen?

It was due to the Hot House Effect

That is my theory

Over population of large dinosaurs created the Hot House Effect

CO2 levels reached 4000 PPM

Today CO2 levels are only 400 PPM

Some Dinosaurs had reached 100 Tons in Size by the end of the Cretaceous Period

That’s the body weight of 1000 humans weighing 200 pounds

Humans emit 2.5 Pounds of CO2 daily

So a factory sized CO2 emitting machine we call Dinosaurs

Could emit 2500 pounds of CO2 a day

Dinosaurs lay eggs so can multiply rapidly

An earth teeming with large animals such as the Titanosaurus

Emitting huge amounts of CO2 for millions of years

Caused the surface and ocean temperature to rise to levels that most life could not live in

This is what killed the dinosaurs and 65% of animal and sea life

It was not an asteroid

It was a global Hot House Effect caused by 4000 ppm CO2 Levels

There was no mass extinction event at end of the Triassic Period

There was a rapid change in evolution and over many millions of years

Up to 90% of life forms evolved or died off during millions of years in the Triassic Period

The CO2 Level in this period was only 900 ppm

900 ppm CO2 levels fueled plant growth

Abundant plants and trees caused high Oxygen Levels

Higher Oxygen Levels and abundant plant food fueled size growth of surface animals

The breakup of Pangaea and the formation of continents occured in the Triassic Period

It trapped all species onto smaller continental zones

This nudged evolution to quickly develop new species

The new species became dominate and most older species died

While the Cretaceous Period did see an abrupt end to a large percentage of life (65%)

The end of 90% of species during the so-called Triassic – Jurassic extinction

Took many millions of years and was a defacto proof of evolution and not mass extinction

A true ELE (Extinction Level Event) does not take millions of years

That is an evolutionary change

Surface animals could not migrate to new habitats easily when the continents formed

Survival of the fittest kicked in and weaker species died off

This took many millions of years

The true Hot House Effect causing mass extinction is clearly seen in the fossil record

It happened only at the end of the Cretaceous Period

When 65% of life on land and seas quickly became extinct

4000 ppm created a high temperature on earth on the surface and in oceans

Where all land animals vanished that could not burrow into the earth on the surface

Fish that could not exist in warmer ocean temperatures died off

Aquatic life that could reach deeper ocean levels survived

Near surface aquatic life able to live in warmer ocean waters survived

The difference between these events is the Triassic Jurassic Event spanned many millions of years

The late Cretaceous Extinction was in geological terms almost instant

To classify the vast evolutionary changes of the Triassic period as extinction is wrong

Evolution accelerated due to formation of continents and higher CO2 levels

Evolution takes millions of years

Extinction Level Events are fast
