Or, to be more charitable, they know about as much about the mind-boggling complexities of global oceanography, geology, atmospheric thermodynamics and paleoclimatology as the rest of us non-experts, but they elect to hear what they want to hear, dignifying their opportunism as "scepticism".
After reviewing the principles of paleoclimatology and paleobiogeography and presenting a chronology, they discuss terrestrial tetrapod horizons in India, the Permian period: the beginnings of Gondwana sedimentation, the Triassic period: pan-Gaean world, the Jurassic period: time of the giants, the Cretaceous period, the Paleocene period, the Paleocene-Eocene transition: initial collision with Asia, the making of the Himalayan Mountains and the Tibetan Plateau, the neogene Siwalik group, and the evolution of Indian summer monsoons.
