Extinction wars

Was It the Asteroid: Was It the Deccan Traps?

This long, and well written, article follows an advocate of the Deccan Traps being the cause of the extinction of the dinosaurs on a field trip to India. It describes the disputes she has had with the asteroid backers and the difficulties she has faced - not all of them geological.

The article describes how scientific controversies can become entrenched and embittered.
