The Science of Healthy Scepticism
9/11 Tower 7 - A Firefighter's Analysis
Let’s first define why this is so important. In terms of political history, this is probably the most important building collapse ever to have occurred; not just from an architectural perspective, not only because it raises very significant questions about the safety of high-rise occupiers and their rescuers should a similar building be involved in fire but because of what it represents in terms of what happened geopolitically and militarily as a result of its collapse. However, the primary purpose of this assessment is to establish what level of risk the report of this collapse identifies for Firefighters.
