Jonathan Kay claims knockdown of what he calls 9/11 Truthers’ “microspheres” thermite propagandists"

"An excellent, concise, knockdown counterargument to the 9/11 Truthers’ “microspheres” thermite propaganda" says Jonathan Kay, managing editor of Canada's National Post and author of "Among The Truthers"

Found this posted on a group called New Mexicans for Science and Reason …

Hi Niels, thought you should see this, This was published on a blog (Among The Truthers) May 11, 2012 - by National post managing editor and author of the book "Among The Truthers" Jonathan Kay. Best Regards Doug

Hi Doug This is totally ridiculous, and the source, Dave Thomas of New Mexico, as well. I had a healthy laugh. many regards from Copenhagen

Footnote - Dave Thomas is a physicist and mathematician, mostly known for his writings and research on the paranormal (such as UFO sightings in Roswell, New Mexico and Aztec, New Mexico, as well as finding codings in other texts that dispute the credibility of the Bible Code). Thomas is currently president of New Mexicans for Science and Reason and a past president of the New Mexico Academy of Science, and is also a Fellow of the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry.

Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe
Niels H. Harrit, Jeffrey Farrer, Steven E. Jones Kevin R. Ryan, Frank M. Legge, Daniel Farnsworth, Gregg Roberts, James R. Gourley and Bradley R. Larsen Pp 7-31

We have discovered distinctive red/gray chips in all the samples we have studied of the dust produced by the destruction of the World Trade Center. Examination of four of these samples, collected from separate sites, is reported in this paper. These red/gray chips show marked similarities in all four samples. One sample was collected by a Manhattan resident about ten minutes after the collapse of the second WTC Tower, two the next day, and a fourth about a week later. The properties of these chips were analyzed using optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy (XEDS), and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The red material contains grains approximately 100 nm across which are largely iron oxide, while aluminum is contained in tiny plate-like structures. Separation of components using methyl ethyl ketone demonstrated that elemental aluminum is present. The iron oxide and aluminum are intimately mixed in the red material. When ignited in a DSC device the chips exhibit large but narrow exotherms occurring at approximately 430 °C, far below the normal ignition temperature for conventional thermite. Numerous iron-rich spheres are clearly observed in the residue following the ignition of these peculiar red/gray chips. The red portion of these chips is found to be an unreacted thermitic material and highly energetic.

Hah! What fools they take people for

Kay takes the cake. Visiting fellow at neo-con Defence of Democracies group.

An impartial journalist?

As long as I've known Kay...

he's never been an impartial journalist - These are my amateur interviews with Kay .

As far as I know, RJ Lee

As far as I know, RJ Lee Group still have not responded to requests for clarification regarding the above letter, which they wrote in response to queries from Ron Wieck ("Hardfire" host). That Jonathan Kay, who has a degree in metallurgy, would take that explanation at face value -- and off Dave Thomas's site, no less -- tells us a little bit more about his reasoning capabilities (and perhaps why he didn't pursue metallurgy?) ;)

Ron Wieck (Hardline Host)

Wow - I did not know he was still around, I remember him being a regular contributor on the now defunct "Conspiracy Smasher" blog. Conspiracy Smasher blog had the same kind of supermarket tabloid content akin to "Screw Loose Change". It's funny to me that Jonathan Kay highly recommends to his readers from his book "Among The Truthers", Screw Loose Change" as a credible de-bunking web-site. I had a good healthy laugh when I first read that...

In the houses of shadow, everybody Lies.

LEE Ranks with Shyam Pinocchio Sunders 'axial expansion' 'shear stud break/not heating concrete floor slabs in the model' for nonsense award.

That 'Richie LEE' could be so absent from thinking possible sources for the 150Xtimes normal Iron-rich microspheres in DUST shows how relevant 911 truth is to him and the system he operates within.
IE: He don't really give a sideways toss because no one is going to have him on about it.

No peer review on this throw away line of elevator shafts becoming furnace flame tubes creating 5.87%[150xnormal!] iron-rich microspheres in the DUST from 'rust particles' in the 'core area' incinerating .
Several problems with this don'tcha think?

FI, thats quite a bit of RUST, Ritchie Rich. Only in top sections of towers -15 stories in 1. 30 stories in 2.. They only burned for an hour and a bit and fires were perceptibly going OUT - oxygen starved'd think it mighty DIFFICULT for ROCKET launch furnace temperatures unobserved hooting that TONNAGE of iron-rich microspheres into pre 'collapse' smoke to find itself finely mixed throughout overall total DUST clouds? Its a bit of a STRETCH Ritchie..
But, like Pinocchio S himself. the nose gets so long it can't smell the rot of its own story. And, like WTC7 creatioNIST agnotology floor 12 fires already OUT when computer model sais they popped the shear-studs,
this letter becomes Just more bullshit for the pile.
