A misunderstanding of the definition of the variable “Delta14C” , commonly used in radiocarbon dating and tracing applications to quantify 14C levels, has led at least thee authors to reach wrong conclusions about the fate of carbon introduced into the atmosphere. Models motivated by the mistake are excluded by the very same 14C data, properly interpreted.
