A video has surfaced online showing a chap who has conducted a highly scientific experiment, that clearly shows how jet fuel can bend steel and therefore this debunks the conspiracy theories that suggest jet fuel alone could not have possibly brought down the Twin Towers on 9/11.
I have many problems with this video, not least because it literally proves nothing, is a complete waste of his time and everyone else’s, and has succeeded only in melting the last few remaining brain cells left in his empty skull coming up with this ridiculous “de-bunking”.
Firstly, comparing 1/2 inch steel bars with the 87 feet by 133 feet steel core structures as big as buses that were covered in tonnes of concrete and fireproofed, is so ludicrous and un-scientific that he immediately lost my respect in his argument. I stuck with him though for the purposes of this rebuttal, where he then continues to lambast everyone by calling them an “idiot” for even daring to suggest that jet fuel did not cause the WTC to fall that day. Ouch..
He conveniently seems to have forgotten that the WTC’s fell at free fall speed, so even if we were to take him and his silly outfit seriously and indeed jet fuel did weaken the steel, the building would have tilted and bent as he suggests in the video. Not fall straight down at the same speed it would take to drop a penny off the roof of the building.
Then we come to the greatest fail, when he goes over to a roaring furnace, not an actual replication of a jet fuel fire obviously, that would be too scientific. The camera cuts over to the furnace where we conveniently don’t get to see how long the steel bar has been in the furnace being subject to constant heat, and again this is not what would have happened inside the buildings on 9/11.
He then bends the steel pole like a failed magician into a “noodle” before throwing the bar on the ground, and walking away thinking he’s a boss advising everyone to get a job as he goes. Yes, the red hot steel bent, but the cold steel above the burned area still held strong? It didn’t bend an inch! So your argument is only valid if the whole building was heated up to 1500 degrees to cause the collapse? Are you forgetting that there were 84 floors of thick reinforced concrete wrapped steel bars holding everything up below the “hot” impact zone?
When you view the videos of the “planes” crashing into the towers, you can see that 90% of the burning fuel was evaporated outside of the building on impact. The only fires that were in the building were actually small localised fires, as battalion Chief Palmer who made it up to the impact zone on the day said;
“Ladder 15, we’ve got two isolated pockets of fire. We should be able to knock it down with two lines.”
Not exactly a burning furnace then? Neither does this guy explain how and why the firefighters at ground zero saw and reported that there was molten steel “flowing like lava” and was still molten 3 months after the building came down in the rubble, despite there being heavy rain for weeks.
This stupid propaganda video went from 40k to 265k views in a matter of an hours and now is rising well over a million. Just look at the number of “likes” this video has which is in complete contradiction to the vast majority of public opinion which agree that this video is dumb at best and completely moronic at worse. I just wonder who is behind the fake views / feedback this video has received…. *kermit face
It’s safe to say you can’t always trust a blacksmith to explain super complex physics so I hope he does a follow-up to this video, as I would love to see how far he can shove that rod up his ass past the “hot bit” as frankly the only place it deserve to be.
