German paleontologist Michael Prauss provided with a new theory on the disappearance of the dinosaurs. According to his findings, climate change was the big cause and not a rogue asteroid. While the asteroid probably did hit it wasn't the direct cause of extinction.
"The resulting chronic stress, to which of course the meteorite impact was a contributing factor, is likely to have been fundamental to the crisis in the biosphere and finally the mass extinction," Noted Prauss.
I'm not sure what to make of it entirely. As to my lack of knowledge on the subject hinders my understanding of it. So what do you guys think? Is it a good analysis?
I don't doubt either for the mass extinction, I do lean more towards a worldwide climate change though its almost a given that the earth goes through cycles like seasons but on a much more devastating scale. But an asteroid could have been culprit as well, as a matter of fact yesterday an asteroid passed by the earth here it was afternoon. It was close by science standards but nothing life threatening but still a great example of how close we are at any time.
I'm not sure if I worded my question properly so I'll post the link as to how I got my question.
I dont know what to believe. I dont always believe what people say because maybe this german guy doesnt even know what he talking about <.<
As good as any the climate change may have been such the dinosaurs could not survive.
