"The study included 12,781 workers...[and] notes that the event exposed the workers – as well as those living and working in the surrounding area – to a dense cloud of pulverized building materials and chemical byproducts, including pulverized glass and cement, insulation fibers including asbestos, and toxic chemicals."
A study published today in The New England Journal of Medicine reveals that Fire Department of New York (FDNY) firefighters and emergency medical services (EMS) workers who responded to the 9/11 attacks at the World Trade Center have suffered significant, persistent declines in lung functions. According to the report, exposure to World Trade Center dust created when the towers collapsed led to “large declines” in lung functions for FDNY rescue workers during the first year, and that “the declines were persistent, without recovery over the next 6 years, leaving a substantial proportion of workers with abnormal lung function.”
This video was uploaded to youtube a little over a month ago. I stumbled upon it through a hyperlinked comment under a rawstory.com article about geraldo's recent shift in critical thinking skills. I haven't seen it on this site, so I thought I'd post it.
There's an interesting pocket of bright flame that ignites at the 6:00 mark. Additionally, there's lots of video of the mangled and cut steel beams.. .
9/11 New WTC Ground Zero Aftermath Kurt Sonnenfeld FEMA Video 2010 Release
In this short documentary-style video, I outline the mathematics and science of WTC7 as it relates to its uniform 6.5 second collapse at 5:20 pm on the evening of September 11th. I also briefly touch upon the government analyses conducted by FEMA and NIST, and I compare the collapse to known controlled demolitions and similar steel structures with fire and/or structural damage. Additional info that the viewer may find applicable is that more than half of the diesel fuel was recovered by the two largest underground storage tanks post-collapse (documented by FEMA), and that fires on the north, west, and east sides of the building did not appear to be out of control. In the intro to the vid, the BBC field reporter mysteriously digitizes out of the conversation minutes before WTC7's collapse, after having prematurely reported its collapse 20 minutes before it occured (with the building standing behind the field reporter in plain sight). Also interesting to note, if the hypothesis of NIST is true, then controlled demolition crews only have to weaken one core column in a skyscraper to perfectly implode it.
At 5:20 p.m. on the evening of September 11th, 2001, the Salomon Brothers Building, also known as 7 World Trade Center (WTC7), the northernmost building on the World Trade Center complex, uniformly collapsed in 6.5 seconds. It produced a rubble pile with a radius similar its original dimensions and approximately seven stories tall .
William Rodriguez will be speaking at the Lakeview Museum in the basement auditorium at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 22, in Peoria, Illinois.
Mr. Rodriguez worked in the WTC buildings as a janitor, and he is a credible witness to the secondary and underground explosions reported in the Twin Towers before their collapses.
I will be filming this lecture.
Today, a William Rodriguez-related news story was released - New Victim's Family Supports Search For 9/11 Truth - which I hope will convince you that this movement does not disrespect the families of the victims, and that in many instances, it is the Families Groups that have been the strongest advocates for a full investigation on the issues.
The 9/11 Commission report is full of contradictions, omissions, and distortions of the reality of the events surrounding 9/11.
I hope to see many of you in this area attend this lecture, even if you are pessimistic of the premise - come with questions.
I'm upset that they would stoop to the lows that they did.
Danny Bonaduce: "she should be strung up for treason". . "she's offering aid and comfort to the enemy"??
Come on, man. . .
Get a grip.
I thought that most of the "Analysts" on Fox News and MSNBC were hateful, innacurate, and opposed to freedom of speech. (minus the female personality on Hannity and Colmes, and O'Reilly's male guest - only during his final statement about our right to not watch the View if we disagree)
O'Reilly: "they are spitting out the worst propoganda that is fed to them by far-left Americans on the net. . that's where they're getting the "false flag", "Gulf of Tonkin", and all this other business"
O'Reilly's male guest: "the real danger, is that they're mainstreaming this hateful nonsense"
Hannity's male guest: "she has no right to speak [because she's] a clown, a fool, a deranged activist"
Hannity: Equating 9/11 Truth to disrespecting the families of those who lost their lives on 9/11.
Ignorance at it's best!
I wrote to NIST on June 21st, 2006 to inform them that their WTC 1 and 2 reports were receiving heavy complaints.
I sent my email to the following addresses I found on their website: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, TheSI@nist.gov, SBIR@nist.gov, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com.
I informed them that they need to address the inaccuracies, contradictions, and missing data in their reports.
I received a response from Robert Kirkner (firstname.lastname@example.org), the Acting Chief, Management and Organization Division, on June 28th, 2006.
He CC:ed the mail to email@example.com as well.
The body of the email was: "An official reply to your June 21, 2006, email is attached."
In his enclosed .pdf file reply, he provided a step-by-step means to request an error correction through NIST.
I brought up this topic at Kevin Barrett's lecture at Bradley Univ., on Feb 6th, 2007.
I asked him why the Scholars for 9/11 Truth groups haven't filed an error correction report with the NIST engineering reports.
Apparently, within a month, three separate people have requested an error correction.
Edward F. Haas submitted one (partially related to WTC 7 report), on February 28, 2007:
Morgan Reynolds submitted one on March 8th, 2007:
Judy Wood submitted one on March 16th, 2007:
A single attorney represents all three error requests: Attorney Jerry Leaphart.
It is curious as to why these error corrections seek to stop the release of the NIST WTC 7 report due this year.
I believe it is a good thing to get to the bottom of these poor engineering reports through an honest justice system.
But isn't it smarter to have the support of ALL of the best academic and professional 9/11 Truth advocates for these error corrections??
I filmed the following lectures at Bradley University:
