Carbon used carbon dating

First, any instrument which is built to measure radiocarbon has a limit beyond which it cannot separate the signal due to radiocarbon in the sample from the signal due to background processes within the measuring apparatus.Even a hypothetical sample containing absolutely no radiocarbon will register counts in a radiocarbon counter because of background signals within the counter.It is not difficult to see how such a claim could arise, however.There are two characteristics of the instrumental measurement of radiocarbon which, if the lay observer is unaware, could easily lead to such an idea.It is not correct to state or imply from this evidence that the radiocarbon dating technique is thus shown to be generally invalid.The problem with freshwater clams arises because these organisms derive the carbon atoms which they use to build their shells from the water in their environment.

Radiocarbon is not suitable for this purpose because it is only applicable: a) on a time scale of thousands of years and b) to remains of once-living organisms (with minor exceptions, from which rocks are excluded).

I am not aware of any authentic research which supports this claim.

Also, it does not coincide with what creationist scientists would currently anticipate based upon our understanding of the impact of the Flood on radiocarbon.

These two measures of time will only be the same if all of the assumptions which go into the conventional radiocarbon dating technique are valid.

Comparison of ancient, historically dated artifacts (from Egypt, for example) with their radiocarbon dates has revealed that radiocarbon years and calendar years are not the same even for the last 5,000 calendar years.

    Whereas federal environmental laws that establish federal floors permit states to adopt their own standards if they are more stringent, federal ceiling preemption typically establishes a unitary federal standard that prevents states from adopting standards that diverge in any way. In this way, federal ceilings often also operate as federal floors, heightening 79 See Adelman & Engel, supra note 63, at 1836 (arguing that federal ceiling preemp- tion is undesirable in part because it allows business interests to take advantage of “one- stop shopping” and avoid expenses of lobbying in fifty different states). \server05\productn\N\NYU-1\NYU104unknown Seq: 32 20-MAR-09 April 2009] LIMITING PREEMPTION IN ENVIRONMENTAL LAW 289 preventing California and the other states that had adopted California’s regulations from enforcing them.160 In order to focus on the policy issues, this Note sets aside the question of whether the EPA’s original decision to deny California’s waiver request was legally defensible161 and assumes that it was within the EPA’s legal discretion to grant or deny the waiver.162 The Bush administration and automobile industry’s claim that denying the waiver was desirable because it allows for a national solution rather than a “patchwork” of different state regulations163 is a non sequitur. 166 See Revesz, supra note 30, at 593 (noting that states that have taken lead on automo- bile emissions, including California, “did not benefit by protecting in-state 167 See Elliott et al., supra note 88, at 329 (“Since midwestern auto workers don’t vote on whether California should ban the internal combustion engine to control smog . 168 See Ludwiszewski & Haake, supra note 96, at 680 n.93 (“[T]o the extent that emis- sions regulations cause an increase in the price of vehicles, that could lead to a decrease in new vehicles sales and a resulting strain on the automobile industry, which is located pri- marily outside of California.”).
