New evidence: dawn of the dinosaurs has ensured volcanoes
Perhaps the dinosaurs should thank the volcanoes for their domination of the planet. At least according to one theory. Most scientists believe that the onset of volcanic activity 200 million years ago led to mass extinction, which paved the way for the flourishing of the dinosaurs. And now scientists have found new evidence in favor of this theory: global geological “fingerprint”, indicating that volcanic gases affect the whole world during extinction.
