Anyone know if there is any relationship between the asteriod impact in 
the Yucatan and the volcanic eruptions in the Indian subcontinent 65 
million years ago?  Paleontologist point to one or the other event as the 
cause of the mass extinction, but if the eruptions were triggered by the 
asteriod impact, then both sides are right.  Any thoughts???
