This chill of the thermosphere is what did in the dinosaurs. Sadly, mass dino farts coincided with a solar minima chilled thermosphere and poof, global climate change.

The temperature of the thermosphere gradually increases with height. Unlike the stratosphere beneath it, wherein a temperature inversion is due to the absorption of radiation by ozone, the inversion in the thermosphere occurs due to the extremely low density of its molecules. The temperature of this layer can rise as high as 1500 C (2700 F)
