We are not mindless dinosaurs,Dinosaurs were far from mindless. They survived in all sorts of environments for about 170,000,000 years and learned to swim, burrow and fly. The big guys even had two brains, making them four times as intelligent as a politician.
The odd thing about their extinction was its completeness. Land animals (including humans) clearly cannot survive major climate change because their environments are not robust and food may disappear quicker than the animals can migrate. But sea creatures can migrate continuously and the ocean environment and ecology are robust and change very slowly. Sharks survived, so we must assume that their prey fish also were not much affected by the dinosaur extinction event. So why did the ocean dinosaurs also die out?
