“The more work that has been done, the more extreme it seems,” added Kennett. Little did Kennett and colleagues know just how far-reaching the projected climatic effect would be.
"The hypothesis suggests a possible triggering mechanism for the abrupt changes in climate at that time, in particular a rapid cooling in the Northern Hemisphere, called the Younger Dryas, amid a general global trend of natural warming and ice sheet melting evidenced by changes in the fossil and sediment record."
