Magnetic Reversal & Extinction – Rebuttal of Lingam 2019 Paper Abstract: “Hence, we suggest that hypotheses seeking to explain … mass extinctions via changes in Earth’s magnetic field intensity are potentially unlikely.” This is not supported by the study. All that would need to change is to add the words “… via radiation dose and atmospheric loss” at the end, before the period. Lingam 2019 –

*Most Advanced Part: Lingam 2019 use of UV is extensive, but for extrapolation of dosage and broad generalized statements. Specific food chain issues and the relationship to the ensemble of events is not made. Claim: The UV examination is incomplete, and further, is not applied appropriately in the broader picture.
