The Energy-Based Theory Explaining Dinosaur Extinction and Selectivity of Cretaceous - Tertiary Extinction Event Coincided with a Large Meteorite Impact

Full Text PDF

Abstract:

This is our concise interdisciplinary energy theory explaining dinosaur extinction and the energy-based interpretation of the natural world. The theory proposes ideas which build on Luis Alvarez’s impact theory by adding the energy-based mechanism underlying the mass extinction event–the final missing element to make the famous theory complete. Dinosaurs and other creatures of the Mesozoic Era differ from the commonly accepted image to which we are used.
