Scientists have speculated for more than a decade that the entire surface of the Earth below would have been baked by the equivalent of a global oven set on broil.

Sure, and the animals that burrowed underground or sheltered in water survived how? By eating what?

Burnt and rotting plant and animal matter, each other, etc. They survived it so obviously there was some food for them.

And wouldn't that have killed every land plant?

The "heat pulse" caused by re-entering ejected matter would have reached around the globe, igniting fires and burning up all terrestrial organisms not sheltered in burrows or in water, he said.

Excuse me while I move my computer into the burrow... er... basement. LOL! (At least until the next theory-presented-as-fact says only the creatures on high mountain tops survived.) But then there's the ever-flip-flopping global warming/global cooling terror de-jure. What's a poor gullible guy to do?

Soil is a pretty good insulator, and after everything cooled off there would be plenty of roast dino laying around.

It would have been very hot for a while, but the effect would have lasted hours, not days or weeks. So anything caught aboveground in the open would have been broiled, but if you could get to cover or get in the water, you would have been all right.

What the theory doesn't cover includes why we didn't see extinctions of significant numbers of plant species, and why NO dinosaurs survived, even aquatic and swamp-dwelling ones
