Buried Alive. At https://phys.org/news/2020-09-eternal-sleeper-dinosaurs-unearthed-china.... ... another case of sleeping dinosaurs, in a hidie hole, being overwhelmed, buried, and preserved as a stone fossil.

 ...  It was discovered by farmers in NE China. According to researchers two specimens of the same species were found, and given a name that means 'eternal sleepers' in Chinese. Both were buried alive with their eyes closed. They must have been overwhelmed without the time even to blink. Quick as a flash. The researchers make the suggestion they were overwhelmed as a result of a volcanic eruption while they slumbered in their burrow.They were a burrowing form of dinosaur, we are told, just a metre in length. They date from the Lower Cretaceous.

At https://notrickszone.com/2020/09/14/new-study-finds-weak-co2-induced-war... ... a new study has debunked the idea, in an older study, that temperature swings at the end of the Triassic had anything to do with enhanced levels of co2. This was of course, low hanging fruit, a product of modern global warming fanaticism, and relatively easy to punch out of sight. What is apparent is that temperatures rose dramaticallly at the end of the Triassic - as a result of the catastrophe that extinguished many life forms. The idea that it had anything to do with co2 is simply jumping on the bandwagon of modern climate hysteria, and naturally, a proper group of scientists have refuted it as ridiculous. Rather than seek out what caused the catastrophe both studies skirt around the idea without addressing the elephant in the room.

Finally, archaeologists think they may know what caused the destruction of a Canaanite palace around 3700 years ago (roughly contemporary with the 1628-5BC low growth tree ring event). An earthquake.

In 2009 archaeologists uncovered a Canaanite palace at Tel Kabri. It was destroyed in the late 18th century BC, and abandoned. Eric Cline is a Tel Kabri co-director.
