That's interesting. I wonder if you could expound upon that just a little?

I ask because I recently read a book (Science Fiction...but supposedly based on science) which had as part of it's premise that the dinosaurs were NOT wiped out by an asteroid but rather by multiple and extreme volcanic eruptions in India.

I'd never heard that before nor what you've just mentioned....but they apparently might tie together.
