171. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... that they died out gradually, not suddenly in a catastrophe. From a scientist of repute this just will not do, for none of these assertions is true, and the evidence of a few decades ago has not been altered with time. All that has happened is for the dogma to become fossilised! An excellent recent debate on mammoth extinctions can be found in Kronos VII:4 . But the prime target for Henbest's attack is Peter Warlow whose pole-shifting idea ". .. is the only one that can be taken at all seriously, because it is based on a sound physical foundation". What? Has Henbest not read Slabinski? Ah yes, he has, ...
172. Volcanism [Books] [de Grazia books]
... his classic work on volcanos, but also the whole range of cosmodynamics. The great movements have gone, but a restlessness remains, erupting locally; volcanos erupt solo, almost never performing duets. The volcanos of the world adhere to the world-girdling fracture system. The system organizes the world's volcanos. The volcanos of the land, active and extinct, follow the great fracture lines that pass underground as for instance in the Tethyan shear sub-system of the Caribbean-Mediterranean-Middle East, or beneath the Pacific coastal states of America. The same is true of the volcanic belts off the East Asian continent. The oceanic volcanos string along with most of the fracture system. Isolated volcanos such as the Hawaiian ...

174. Isotopic Anomalies in Chronometric Science [Journals] [SIS Review]
... terms of catastrophic mixing of S34-rich evaporate deposits with surface oceans. He has identified three catastrophic events in this way: at the Permo-Triassic boundary (the Rot event); at the Carboniferous-Devonian boundary (the Souris event); and at the Proterozoic-Cambrian boundary (the Yudomski event). A further category of "abundance anomalies" are the "extinct radio-activities", where a very long-lived radioisotope has decayed to a non-radiogenic daughter nuclide which is then present in "excess", so distorting the conventional abundance of the resulting element. These examples of extinct radioactivity are often of cosmological significance (22), and the recent detection of an Mg26 anomaly (derived from extinct Al26 - half ...

... years later thousands more died in a drought' as their pool dried up over a few days' and they were immediately gently covered by sand'. Alternative to impacts The Guardian,25.3 .93, p. 13 Supernovae may occur relatively near Earth and more frequently than previously thought. They could therefore be responsible for mass extinctions as Earth would be irradiated by gamma rays and electrically charged cosmic rays, leading to a breakdown in the ozone layer for up to 3,000 years. Without our protective ozone layer, ultraviolet radiation would reach lethal proportions. More impacts New Scientist, 12.6 .93, p. 15 A huge impact crater discovered in ...
176. On the Disproportion between Geological Time and Historical Time Part One - Of Apes and Men [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Fluorine test. Their deductions from the test were fallacious, however, as Malcolm Bowden has shown  and as one would expect, given the unambiguous context of the find. In 1915 human bones, pottery and implements were found at Vero, Florida, in association with Ice Age animals such as the sabre-toothed tiger, which became extinct long before man is supposed to have arrived in America (c .11,500 BC). Anthropologists Ales Hrdlicka and W. H. Holmes concluded that since the pottery was similar to that of the mound-building Indian tribes who inhabited Florida before Columbus, the bones must have been of recent origin. This is no doubt true, ...
177. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... .88; (New Scientist 11.2 .88, p.27) The flavour of the month is "acid rain". Ronald G. Prinn, of MIT, has come up with the theory of "very strong acid rain" (pH 0-1) at the end of the Cretaceous Period to account for the worldwide extinctions. Its cause - a comet striking Earth, heating the atmosphere and causing nitrogen and oxygen to combine, producing sufficient nitric acid to defoliate trees and dissolve the calcium carbonate shells of marine animals in surface layers. He has found evidence of a short-lived increase in the ratio of strontium-87 to strontium-86 in terminal Cretaceous deposits: "The only ...

... in lakes during the thirty-one years that had passed since the analysis made by Russell, and also the rate of concentration of salts by evaporation, and each time reached the result that the entire history of Pyramid and Winnemucca lakes "is within the last 3000 years."5 Bones of horses, elephants, and camels, animals that became extinct in the Americas, were found in the Lahontan sediments, as well as a spear point of human manufacture.6 When a branch of the Southern Pacific Railroad was laid through Astor Pass, a large gravel pit of Lahontan age was opened, and J. C. Merriam of the University of California identified among the bones the skeletal ...

We are face to face with a mystery and it is clear the extinction of the rhinoceros all over Siberia must have been brought about by some unusual and tremendous cataclysm accompanied by an extraordinary change in climate.. . . Thus perished the Siberian rhinoceros overwhelmed by a catastrophe both sudden and tremendous." REV. D ...
