Canadian David Long was a witness to the 9/11 attack in New York and watched the controlled demolitions of the Twin Towers from the street. In this episode of 9/11 Free Fall he tells his story about what he saw, and he talks about the efforts of Canadians to use the citizen petition process to get their government to call for a new investigation of 9/11.
February 18, Thursday morning, a small plane hit an Austin seven story office building.
The myth continues about how office fires can melt metal.
“...We have seen how floors can collapse after metal starts melting at fire intensity so high. This is a 7 story building… …And frankly, most occupants of buildings these days know when they tell you to evacuate, there has been a plane crash, you don’t stop. You just get out as quickly as possible….”

Title: Serving on 'sacred ground'

…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. Massive steel girders were sandwiched in with crushed concrete. Someone told us that they weighed 1,000 pounds a foot. The collapse left them all blackened and twisted. They are among the few recognizable items in the rubble. You find scant evidence of the hundreds of offices that were once part of the twin towers. Most the furniture and equipment was pounded into dust.

Retired public defender William Veale presents a concise summary of some of the science behind the controlled demolition hypothesis of the complete collapse of WTC buildings 1,2, and 7 on 9/11.
This is a clip from "Improbable Collapse: The Demolition of Our Republic" -
The NIST NCST Committee on WTC7 held a public meeting on the progress of the WTC7 report. One of the public commentators was Richard Gage AIA.
The call contains a number of stunning admissions by NIST regarding the WTC7 fires, as well as interesting questions from NIST committee members and powerful statements from three citizen commentators.

Journal of 9/11 Studies Letter
29 March 2007
There is much misunderstanding about the meaning of the colors we see when we look at pictures of the WTC towers before they fell. 9/11 literature is full of faulty assumptions, assertions, and conclusions. In this short paper I will present a case for how the pictures should be interpreted regarding the colors of thermal emissions we see in them. The case is based on the physics of black body radiation and gravity flow of liquids.
Dr. Jones demonstrated by experiment that organic material floats on the liquid aluminum and burns up (oxidizes). Further, the liquid aluminum in this experiment was never heated to the point where it no longer appeared silvery. This experiment gave the expected result. Organic material would not change the color vs temperature behavior of aluminum.
The conclusion of this analysis is inescapable. The liquid metal was molten iron.

Only the use of thermite could = 6 weeks at 1500 degrees- why so hot Rudy?
Stop Lying Jim
he would be an idiot to accept a debate
Found another one - updated.
Molten metal flowed underneath ground zero for months after the Twin Towers collapsed:
New York firefighters recalled in a documentary film, "heat so intense they encountered rivers of molten steel."
A NY firefighter described molten steel flowing at ground zero, and said it was like a "foundry" or like "lava".
A public health advisor who arrived at Ground Zero on September 12, said that "feeling the heat" and "seeing the molten steel" there reminded him of a volcano.
An employee of New Jersey's Task Force One Urban Search and Rescue witnessed "Fires burn[ing and molten steel flow[ing] in the pile of ruins still settling beneath her feet."

finds dozens of “hot spots” at Ground Zero
(some over 1300 degrees C)
“The temperature of the fire at the WTC was not unusual, and it was most definitely not capable of melting steel.”
Die Temperatur des Feuers in den WTC-Türmen war nicht ungewöhnlich [hoch], und es war ganz bestimmt nicht in der Lage, Stahl zu schmelzen.
(Prof. Eagar, MIT, 2001)
“Your gut reaction would be the jet fuel is what made the fire so very intense, a lot of people figured that's what melted the [WTC] steel. Indeed it did not, the steel did not melt.”
Ihre erste Reaktion wäre abzunehmen, dass Flugzeugbenzin die Feuer so heiß werden ließ, viele Leute hielten das für die Ursache des geschmolzenen Stahls. Aber so war es nicht, der Stahl schmolz nicht.
(Dr. Gayle, NIST, 2005)
I just added a 4 minute video to David Cameron's website: http://www.webcameron.org.uk/library/video-list. This is of Prof Steven Jones discussing the molten metal evidence at the WTC site which convinced him that this was an inside job. Hopefully Mr Cameron will watch this -- at least he has not removed my other video upload of the WTC7 collapse.
Could someone send me a source (other than Google Video or Youtube) so I can download the Fireman discussing the flowing molten metal? It could be an .avi, .wmv, or .mpg file. Need it for my PPT presentation.
"A video of a firefighter describing seeing molten "steel" flowing at ground zero after 9/11 has emerged on Google video. He states that it was like a foundry or "lava in a volcano". This is an extremely important piece of footage because it highlights the fact that something other than jet fuel fires, or in the case of building 7, office material fires, was responsible for the collapse of the buildings.
There are lots of accounts alleging that rescue workers encountered molten steel. Debunkers have often asked the question whether these witnesses know the difference between incandescent and molten, i.e. the fact that glowing steel was pulled out of the rubble doesn't mean it was molten.
The firefighter in this video specifically says the steel was flowing.
Molten metal found in the basement of the WTC suggests that the commonly used explosive thermite may be responsible for the collapse. Physics professor Steven Jones, formerly of Brigham Young University, has conducted extensive research to prove that buildings not destroyed by explosives would have insufficient directed energy to produce the large quantities of melted metal that was discovered. The molten steel was found five days after the collapse, on Sept. 16, when the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) used an Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS) to locate and measure the site’s hot spots.
Worcester Polytechnical Institute Suggests Melted Steel and Silver Dollar Sized Holes Caused by Sulfur Possibly From Acid Rain
Note: This article is in fact over 4 years old, since it has already been posted it will still be listed, sorry for the confusion.
The "Deep Mystery" of Melted Steel - wpi.edu
There is no indication that any of the fires in the World Trade Center buildings were hot enough to melt the steel framework. Jonathan Barnett, professor of fire protection engineering, has repeatedly reminded the public that steel--which has a melting point of 2,800 degrees Fahrenheit--may weaken and bend, but does not melt during an ordinary office fire. Yet metallurgical studies on WTC steel brought back to WPI reveal that a novel phenomenon--called a eutectic reaction--occurred at the surface, causing intergranular melting capable of turning a solid steel girder into Swiss cheese.
Materials science professors Ronald R. Biederman and Richard D. Sisson Jr. confirmed the presence of eutectic formations by examining steel samples under optical and scanning electron microscopes. A preliminary report was published in JOM, the journal of the Minerals, Metals & Materials Society. A more detailed analysis comprises Appendix C of the FEMA report. The New York Times called these findings "perhaps the deepest mystery uncovered in the investigation." The significance of the work on a sample from Building 7 and a structural column from one of the twin towers becomes apparent only when one sees these heavy chunks of damaged metal.
A one-inch column has been reduced to half-inch thickness. Its edges--which are curled like a paper scroll--have been thinned to almost razor sharpness. Gaping holes--some larger than a silver dollar--let light shine through a formerly solid steel flange. This Swiss cheese appearance shocked all of the fire-wise professors, who expected to see distortion and bending--but not holes.
A eutectic compound is a mixture of two or more substances that melts at the lowest temperature of any mixture of its components. Blacksmiths took advantage of this property by welding over fires of sulfur-rich charcoal, which lowers the melting point of iron. In the World Trade Center fire, the presence of oxygen, sulfur and heat caused iron oxide and iron sulfide to form at the surface of structural steel members. This liquid slag corroded through intergranular channels into the body of the metal, causing severe erosion and a loss of structural integrity.
"The important questions," says Biederman, "are how much sulfur do you need, and where did it come from? The answer could be as simple--and this is scary- as acid rain."

9/11 - Can you keep a secret? I hope not - The Truth Will Set You Free
"The NIST report represents what can really only be called anti-science. They started with their conclusion and worked their way back to some leading hypothesis."
"Here is the meteorite - molten iron fused with concrete."
"Architects, engineers, people who work with steel - welders - have just never seen the level of destruction and the level of deformation of this material in their lives."
"As I stood there on the 33rd floor, I heard very strange noises on the 34th floor. now, the 34th floor was an empty floor - a floor that did not have any kind of walls, it was a construction floor. It was totally hollowed out there was nothing there . . . not even the elevators stopped there. You had to have a special access key to open the door on the 34th floor"
