SECTION III
SUMMARIES & CONCLUSIONS


Section III presents a summary of the examples of the full version of Ben's Antipodal Impact Theory in action.

This section then looks at the conclusions that we can draw from this theory and the examples from the past.

The primary conclusions are:

1. The major mass extinctions were caused by persistent and explosive volcanism at the antipodes of very large cosmic impacts.

2. There are no other mysterious earthly phenomena (e.g. "rare mantle plumes") that are going to cause a major mass extinction.

3. Major mass extinctions can be prevented. It is only through man's modern technology that the Earth all the creatures living in its protective environment can be saved from the next otherwise inevitable major mass extinction.
