What do you guys make of the new theory on the Dino's?

Home More advice Science

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?
