Doh!
Stupid Asteroid!

according to new research, the Dino extinction asteroid did so much damage because of the exact place it it rather than its size (which was equivalent to 10 billion Hiroshima A-bombs)

"The shallow sea covering the target site meant colossal volumes of sulphur (from the mineral gypsum) were injected into the atmosphere, extending the "global winter" period that followed the immediate firestorm."
