ok, I will admit this is an inflamatory title for the Newsvine community, but will you look at the evidence I present? Simply this one thing. Radiation can be stopped by the most simple compounds. Activated charcoal reduces the halflife of Uranium from 4 billion years to 1 hour. The big problem is that we don't have enough activated charcoal to stop even .1% of the uranium that is already mined and processed on American soil. Uranium destroys the ozone, which filters UV and other harmful rays.
Without the Ozone layer, UV rays heat up the surfact of the planet but do not change the air temperature directly. It turns the planet into a complete and lifeless desert.
Radiation destroys oxygen, including the high quality oxygen that makes up the Ozone layer. When harmful rays are not stopped by the Ozone layer, they bake the planet and kill the trees that produce more Ozone. We already didn't have enough trees to replenish the ozone, but radioactive vortexes drill holes in the Ozone layer besides the destruction it brings on the environment. The desert will expand very rapidly and drought will overtake food production and water supply. There are certain water sources that may never be replenished, once the UV rays have destroyed them. So the use of remedies to stop vortexes specifically and neutralize nucleotides is vitally important to note.
As far as carbon dating is concerned, if the content of the artifact has activated charcoal or other materials such as Titanium Dioxide, Bamboo or bentonite, it will not have an accurate dating. Dating by half-life is obsolete today because it is based on the assumption that the half-life of radioisotopes is immutable, and it is clear that is not the case. They cannot take into account all the variables when dating artifacts. The timeline is based on the computed half-life (and not the actual measured half-life) of radioisotopes.
