Maybe an Asteroid Didn't Kill the Dinosaurs

I found this article today and thought it was interesting. I don't believe we can entirely discount the asteroid as part of the cause for all the dinosaur species being wiped out, but Gerta Keller and Thierry Addate bring up some interesting points. It is possible that the impact caused some initial die-outs, but it took longer for other dinosaurs to die as the climate and environment changed. I could see something like that taking up to 30,000 years.
