No, they are talking about the K/T extinction. Even the "Dinosaur" headline is indicative of it pertaining to the one 65 million years ago. However, despite my prior post I see he referenced the Chicxulub impact as being a meteor strike instead of an asteroid, so he does need to brush up in that respect.
OK. I should have checked the article. I assumed that it was a misreading of the many articles on the work by Yadong Sun of the University of Leeds in Britain on the earlier extinction event (siberian traps, not deccan) that showed global warming of about 60C in the tropics and 40C in the oceans for millions of years. The extreme heat had actually killed off green life on the land and so exacerbated the warming by reducing any CO2 'recycling'.

http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2012-1 ...

It remains that almost all (and now probably all) extinction events on earth can be traced to unrelenting global warming. I quite easily accept that CO2 from the Deccan traps may have 'caused' the extinction of the dinosaurs. However, I wonder if the dating is all that exact. LARGE dinosaurs were probably in decline due to the oxygen levels being reduced from the peak levels of over 30%. To breath, the large dinosaurs would need all the oxygen they could get and with lower levels, the trend would be to smaller dinosaurs and fewer large ones which could give the misleading impresssion of a decline in dinosaurs prior to the asteroid.

Both extinctions are associated with an asteroid strike, followed by a flood lava event (Deccan or Siberian traps) which released enough CO2 to cause 'global heatstroke' resulting in a major die off.

The asteroid strike may have caused the flood basalt lava events.

So was it that global warming cooling thing that killed the dinosaurs. Not all the birds survived not all died.
