Arrest that Supernova!

... For Crimes Against the Megafauna!

Some scientists at LBNL where I work have come out with a theory - with some evidence - that the mammoths and other megafauna in NorAm died out due to the effects of a supernova!

I am unsure what to think of this, to be honest, since humanity seems to have survived that stint of ill luck on the NorAm scene. That bodes well for humanity surviving a helluvalot of any disasters. That might come about. Obviously the NorAm aboriginal populations didn't devolve Baxteresque style after the ubercatastrophy.
