I attended a lecture (probably ten years ago at this point) in which he suggested particular mass extinction horizons in the geological column were the result of methane hydrate eruptions. I can't recall the specifics, other than the general disbelief of most of us in the room, on his particular hypothesis. It required a lot of specific proofs that weren't there. There was much discussion on the existence of C60 in various ash levels. And that's all I can remember, other than thinking Gregory Ryskin needs to provide stronger evidence to this hypotheses. But seriously, some of the leading paleontologists and paleoclimate people really thought his stuff was ignoring strong evidence.
