It was my understanding that Dinosaurs were “a” solution for the environment at the time – namely a hotter environent, even one with more carbon in the atmosphere. An environment suitable for large plants that can feed big herbivore Dinosaurs, and hence large predatory Dinosaurs.

The assertion of size=temp^=cooked is not obvious to me. Where can I learn more?

Hello Aulus Agerius,

Part of why I posted was maybe to get some feedback on the idea. I could google; but, generally, science moves so fast, that I can’t find where I first heard some things.
