Carbon dating failure
The barrel represents the earth's atmosphere in which the carbon-14 accumulates.
The water leaking out the sides of the barrel represents the loss (mainly by radioactive decay) of the atmosphere's supply of carbon-14.
The water coming out of the hose is analogous to the continuous production of carbon-14 atoms in the upper atmosphere.However, the methods must be used with care -- and one should be cautious about investing much confidence in the resulting age...especially in absence of cross-checks by different methods, or if presented without sufficient information to judge the context in which it was obtained.It comes after the government cancelled two funding initiatives to support the construction of the UK's first large-scale and commercial carbon capture and storage (CCS) project, despite having already spent £168m on the project.Carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology enables the capture of carbon dioxide which is then stored underground in depleted oil and gas fields or deep saline aquifer formations.
