Molten Steel and Extreme Temperatures at Ground Zero, New York|
Let's hear experienced ironworkers, architects, engineers, firefighters, and professionals who saw the destruction firsthand, as they talk about the mangled steel, extreme temperatures, and unbelievable pulverization of the debris.
- Wendy Neu of Hugo Neu Schnitzer East (Hugo Neu Corporation) to the Empire State Chapter of ISRI (Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries) on November 28, 2001, at http://www.hugoneu.com/includes/pdfs/Speech-11-28-2001.pdf
- Ironworker talking about the "horseshoe" piece saved for possible memorial use, in "Relics from the Rubble," A&E TV, 2002. Watch clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SLIzSCt_cg#t=1m48s -- Commenting on the piece of steel, Mark Wagner of Voorsanger Architects and Associates said, "Typically you'd have buckling and tearing on the tension side, but there's no buckling at all."
Bart Voorsanger, architect and part of the committee to designate objects to be salvaged) in "Relics from the Rubble," A&E TV, 2002. -- watch at http://www.911conspiracy.tv/mainstream_documentaries.html
This documentary in particular draws attention to the incredible state into which building materials were contorted. The film features a unique look at one of the "meteorites" -- a "fused element of steel, molten steel and concrete and all these things fused by the heat into one single element." (Voorsanger, Ibid. Watch at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SLIzSCt_cg#t=1m20s -- or download the clip (mpeg2): http://s3.amazonaws.com/nasathermalimages/public/video/DVD_Relics%20in%20the%20Rubble%20Clips_meteorite.mpg ) Note that "the melting point of concrete varies between 1800-2500°C" (See http://www.weldcare.co.uk/app10.htm ).

"Metal of Honor: The Ironworkers of 9/11" was a 2006 Spike TV program (by Rachel Maguire, aired Sept. 5) that featured numerous fascinating comments on the extreme heat of underground fires, which were finally extinguished mid-December, according to Spike. One comment from ironworker Larry Keating is repeated in a review by Linda Stasi: "The film shows how they crawled down through and up 100 feet of hot steel, even though sometimes it could explode when the buried ends were exposed to the air." (See http://www.najaproductions.com/images/pdf/NYP.pdf ) Specifically, Keating says: "The grapplers were pulling stuff out, big sections of iron that were literally on fire on the other end. They would hit the air and burst into flames-- which was pretty spooky to see." (Watch at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SLIzSCt_cg#t=2m20s ) Other clips are found here: http://www.total411.info/2006/10/video-metal-of-honor-ironworkers-on.html
Molten metal -- specifically steel -- is a point of contention among researchers. NIST denies its presence, as the YouTube link above shows at the beginning. Even some fringe 9/11 researchers doubt the existence of it (http://www.drjudywood.com/ ). However, there are many witnesses to this now almost mythical, molten steel. Oddly, no video exists of it, other than that which poured from the 80th floor of the South Tower prior to "collapse." Watch many angles of this event in a compilation here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPu9IqBfMIw . The official theory states the dripping metal is aluminum from the plane and/or office material. Some think it may be lead from the UPS batteries on the 81st floor: http://11-settembre.blogspot.com/2007/02/ups-on-81st-floor-of-wtc2.html . Discussion on that theory is here: http://the911forum.freeforums.org/wtc2-molten-metal-drip-t188.html . Also oddly, and debatably, no photos exist of molten steel -- especially not in pools or streams, resolidified or not. (The meteorites are not ideal.) While photos have been offered as proof -- see http://www.sharpprintinginc.com/911/index.php?module=pagemaster&PAGE_user_op=view_page&PAGE_id=50&MMN_position=79:79 -- evidence of tampering (photoshopping, faking, etc.) has also been proven, it seems: http://www.sharpprintinginc.com/911/index.php?module=pagemaster&PAGE_user_op=view_page&PAGE_id=32&MMN_position=55:55 . Here's that apparently fake, infamous photo:

Is it possible that all truly damning video and photographic evidence of molten steel has been successfully censored by THEM? What follows is all the testimony that answers, "Yes."

Said Kathy Dawkins, NY Dept. of Sanitation spokeswoman: "...NYDS played a major role in debris removal -- everything from molten steel beams to human remains...." (Tom R.

"Turner himself crawled through an opening and down crumpled stairwells to the subway, five levels below ground. He remembers seeing in the darkness a distant, pinkish glow–molten metal dripping from a beam–but found no signs of life." - Marci McDonald, "They came to help at Ground Zero. What they experienced they can't forget" http://www.usnews.com/usnews/9_11/articles/911memories.htm
Now let's hear from the only real journalist given unrestricted access to Ground Zero for the duration of the "cleanup." He was below the surface of "the pile," exploring with engineers on more than one occasion. Here he mentions "...the rattle of cascading debris, the ominous groaning of weakened structures overhead, or, in the early days, the streams of molten metal that leaked from the hot cores and flowed down broken walls inside the foundation hole."
- William Langewiesche, American Ground: Unbuilding the World Trade Center, North Point Press, New York, 2002, p. 32.
"In his reporting for "American Ground," Langewiesche explored the shifting debris with construction workers and engineers, documenting the crises and questions as they arose. He crawled through "the pile" with survey parties and descended deep below street level to areas where underground fires still burned and steel flowed in molten streams."
- http://www.theatlantic.com/doc/200207/77nwash (See quote from Langewiesche himself above.)
Peter Tully of Tully Construction was the contractor responsible for the eastern quadrant of the pile-- the South Tower, WTC 4 and 5, and the 425,000 square foot underground mall. Tully granted an interview that proved most interesting:

"In the first few weeks, sometimes when a worker would pull a steel beam from the wreckage, the end of the beam would be dripping molten steel," said Greg Fuchek, vice president of sales for LinksPoint Inc., maker of the GlobalPoint Global Positioning System receiver used to track debris and/or human remains recovery locations in the pile.

Firefighter Captain Philip Ruvolo testified to the presence of molten steel on camera. "You'd get down below and you'd see molten steel-- molten steel running down the channelways, like you were in a foundry-- like lava." His FDNY brothers agreed with his observation. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SLIzSCt_cg#t=1m1s . Source is Etienne Sauret's film "Collateral Damages" (2003).
A review of of Etienne Sauret's documentary "Collateral Damage" describes firemen recalling "heat so intense they encountered rivers of molten steel." (Lumenick, Lou, "Unflinching Look Among the Ruins," New York Post, March 3, 2004.)

"Smoke constantly poured from the peaks. One fireman told us that there was still molten steel at the heart of the towers' remains. Firemen sprayed water to cool the debris down but the heat remained intense enough at the surface to melt their boots." - Guy Lounsbury of New York Air National Guard's 109th Air Wing at http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qa3731/is_200112/ai_n9015802#continue

"Richard Garlock, a structural engineer for LERA said 'Going below, it was smoky and really hot... The debris past the columns was red-hot, molten, running.'
"Vance Deisingnore, OSHA Officer at WTC, reported the following to Jim McKay, Post-Gazette Staff Writer, on September 11, 2002 'a fire truck 10 feet below the ground that was still burning two weeks after the Tower collapsed, its metal so hot that it looked like a vat of molten steel.'"
"'The [NYFD] people who called us had been killed,' Atlas considered as she surveyed the tons and acres of wreckage. 'Nobody's going to be alive.'

"Father Edward A. Malloy, on site 40 days after the disaster stated 'Firefighters atop a number of ladder trucks were spraying in the areas of greatest smoke. The average temperature beneath the rubble is said to be 1500F so that when steel is brought up it is molten and takes two or three days to cool down.'"
"Guy Lounsbury with the 109th Air Wing of the New York Air National Guard wrote 'The men who work on this must constantly change their boots as the heat melts them. Two weeks after the attack, one fireman told us that there was still molten steel at the heart of the towers' remains.'"

"The workers go through three pairs of rubber boots a day because they melt in the three-week-old fire of molten metal and jet fuel. The health hazards are everywhere: the fire, molten metal, the lack of breathable air and 3000+ decomposing bodies."
"Each story has its differences. Some told of 10-hour car drives and arriving in the black of night, the same calendar day as the towers were hit. Others remembered taking military transport - a C- 141 in Deeds' case - a few days later. Others remember molten metal still dripping under the Pile more than a week after the attack." - http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qn4176/is_20061210/ai_n16903160
"Some beams pulled from the wreckage are still red hot more than 7 weeks after the attack, and it is suspected that temperatures beneath the debris pile are well in excess of 1,000°F." - http://web.archive.org/web/20050520232345/http://www.liro.com/lironews.pdf

It was hot.
New York mayor Rudy Giuliani said "They were standing on top of a cauldron. They were standing on top of fires 2,000 degrees that raged for a hundred days." - http://nymag.com/news/features/28517
"The temperature at the core of 'the pile,' is near 2000 degrees Fahrenheit, according to fire officials." http://web.archive.org/web/20010918182531/http://abcnews.go.com/sections/us/DailyNews/WTC_recovery010918.html[/url]
"Firefighters and other responders contended with intense heat associated with the super-heated steel for weeks; some were coming back from shifts with the bottoms of their boots melted."
"Two weeks after the attack, the rubble, the Pile, is still 7 stories tall. Below, in the Pit it burns like the gates of hell. It is 1200 degrees, so hot that the steel work lifted by the grapplers comes out soft. I've never seen anything like this." - http://www.ukfssart.org.uk/wtc%20ground%20zero.htm
"Firemen and hazardous materials experts stated that, six weeks after 9/11, 'There are pieces of steel being pulled out [from as far as six stories underground] that are still cherry red' and 'the blaze is so 'far beyond a normal fire' that it is nearly impossible to draw conclusions about it based on other fires."

"Ground Zero at the World Trade Center was a search site like few others after a major disaster event. Multiple sources of hazards were everywhere. There were shards of steel piled on steel, a two-million-ton pile of debris, red hot steel beams still being pulled from the earth, crevasses, holes, unstable ground, still burning fires, possible asbestos exposure, and caustic fumes that may have contained mixtures of benzene, methane gas and other chemicals." http://michigan.gov/documents/CIS_WSH_minwsw02_28059_7.pdf (maloney.house.gov)
"The first indication of 'Ground Zero' is the smoke. It's still smoking. Many of the beams are still red hot as they are uncovered, and start new fires as the oxygen reaches them." - Congressman Pete Hoekstra hoekstra.house.gov

"It was determined that 3 million gallons of water were hosed on site in the fire-fighting efforts between 9/11 and 9/21"... "In addition, there were 2 episodes of rain during the same 10 day period after the attack: on 9/14 and 9/20, totaling 0.9 million gallons of water per Bathtub area. Considering the neighboring area, one can take 1 million gallons from the rain. Therefore, a total of 4 million gallons of water percolated through the debris in the first 10 days and collected at the bottom of the Bathtub."

"The crater" of WTC 6 was also suspect, although debris from WTC 1 no doubt contributed to the cave-in. Keep in mind the FEMA investigators were not allowed access. See their "Building Performance Study," chapter 4, at http://www.fema.gov/pdf/library/fema403_ch4.pdf -- titled "WTC 4, 5, and 6" despite the total concentration on Building 5. Kenneth Holden, Director of the entity managing the recovery operation at Ground Zero, the NY Department of Design and Construction (DDC), testified to the 9/11 Commission (See http://www.9-11commission.gov/archive/hearing1/9-11Commission_Hearing_2003-04-01.htm ) on C-SPAN2 TV (See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SLIzSCt_cg#t=3m51s ). He said "Underground it was still so hot that molten metal dripped down the sides of the wall from Building 6." Molten concrete, which helped form the "meteorites" mentioned above, also flowed like lava at the US Customs House (WTC 6), according to the New York Police Museum display seen in photographs here: http://0x1a.com/#[[World%20Trade%20Center%20%22Meteorites%22]] Guns were embedded in concrete. Building 6 was also the location of the fused steel cross seen in photos here: http://picasaweb.google.com/F.Archiver/D2p1_GodsHouseWTC6?authkey=r_ZzJMbgTrY# . Hear more about the amazing cross here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SLIzSCt_cg#t=4m0s .
Don't forget about WTC 7:
- James Glanz, "Engineers Suspect Diesel Fuel in Collapse of 7 World Trade Center," NY Times, Nov. 29, 2001, at http://www.nytimes.com/2001/11/29/nyregion/29TOWE.html
This and one other sample of steel are featured in the "Limited Metallurgical Examination" done in Appendix C of the FEMA Building Performance Study found here: http://wtc.nist.gov/media/AppendixC-fema403_apc.pdf -- authored in part by Dr. Jonathan Barnett. The 2008 BBC documentary "Conspiracy Files - 9/11: The Third Tower" discounts/dismisses this evidence here: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=9072062020229593250 -- at vrt 48:40. However, that documentary doesn't mention the final paragraph of the Appendix C document, headed "Suggestions for Future Research." (Emphasis added.)
Uncertain mainstream info on this issue is found here: http://www.wpi.edu/News/Transformations/2002Spring/steel.html and justified suspicion is found here: http://911research.wtc7.net/wtc/evidence/metallurgy/index.html -- considering no other steel from Building 7 was saved for study.
Barnett was professor of fire protection engineering at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute and, according to the NY Times, "part of an assessment team organized by the American Society of Civil Engineers and the Federal Emergency Management Agency to examine the performance of several buildings during the attacks." (Glanz, Nov. 29, 2001) That article continues: "If further studies of the debris confirm the findings of extremely high temperature, Dr. Barnett said, 'the smoking gun would be the fuel.'"
This "smoking gun" has apparently been found among the pervasive dust from the events. It is remaining active thermitic (explosive) material, or aluminothermics. Please read the paper, "Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe" here: http://www.bentham.org/open/tocpj/openaccess2.htm -- http://www.bentham-open.org/pages/content.php?TOCPJ/2009/00000002/00000001/7TOCPJ.SGM -- download here: http://femr2.ucoz.com/load/1-1-0-3 -- and learn more here: http://911research.wtc7.net/essays/thermite/explosive_residues.html . Danish television (TV2News) featured the story April 6, 2009, by hosting one of the authors, Niels Harrit, in a program available to watch with English subtitles here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_tf25lx_3o -- and for download here: http://agenda911.dk/harrit/tv2gomorgen/
A main ingredient in the WTC debris was, of course, the dust. It was concrete and sheet rock, most people figured. It was everywhere in Manhattan for weeks - months - after 9/11. Before the rain Friday the 14th, the dust was inches thick in places. Therefore, doubting the chain of evidence for the dust used in the above study is not a valid argument against that evidence. The nanocomposite thermitic "chips" were not the only apparent proof of a conspiracy found in the dust. We have copious evidence in the form of spherical iron particles-- steel that was boiled, vaporized in temperatures far exceeding that of jet fuel or office fires. Discussion and debate can be found here: "The Problem with Microspheres" -- http://www.sharpprintinginc.com/911/index.php?module=pagemaster&PAGE_user_op=view_page&PAGE_id=70&MMN_position=186:186 . Amazingly, a 9/13 ABC News investigation into the dust confirmed the steel particles, even with some amount of suspicion, it seemed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8LW6b8JF5ls#t=1m39s -- "But most interesting in the mix they are looking, they think, at specks of steel that used to be beams and elevators...."
There is yet another apparent proof of orchestrated demolition relating to the dust: the dense pyroclastic flow. The argument shows that the energy required to generate the volume of dust (specifically after the North Tower "collapse") was decidedly too high to be explained by a gravity-driven collapse. Please see http://911research.wtc7.net/wtc/analysis/proofs/volume.html -- by Jim Hoffman.
Quickly, here is a list of links to the major studies of WTC dust, in no particular order:
Environmental Health Perspectives Volume 110, Number 7, July 2002
"Characterization of the Dust/Smoke Aerosol that Settled East of the World Trade Center (WTC) in Lower Manhattan after the Collapse of the WTC 11 September 2001"
"Signature Assessment 130 Liberty Street Property," RJ LeeGroup, Inc., 12/2003 (see image above, spherical-iron-particle-magnified_w.jpg )
US Geological Survey. Huge data collection. (See the USGS pic "iron rich sphere" at Jim Hoffman's site: http://911research.wtc7.net/wtc/evidence/residues.html ...which quotes Steven Jones's earlier paper ("Revisiting 9/11/2001 -- Applying The Scientific Method," Journal of 9/11 Studies, 5/27/07 at http://www.journalof911studies.com/volume/200704/JonesWTC911SciMethod.pdf -- "Iron melts at 1538ºC, so the presence of these numerous iron-rich spheres implies a very high temperature."
"Analysis of Aerosols from the World Trade Center Collapse Site, New York, October 2 to October 30, 2001" and "Trade Center Debris Pile Was a Chemical Factory, Says New Study" September 10, 2003
The overwhelming evidence for impossibly high temperatures during and/or after the "collapses" has been hidden from the public. Where it has seeped through into the major media, the evidence has faced a psychological blockade, borne of patriotism and faith in the acceptably inept powers that be.
