9/11: The Great Thermate Debate

9/11: The Great Thermate Debate

(14:29) There is no doubt that molten metal poured out from the World Trade Center Towers just before they came crashing to the ground. Conspiracy theorists believe that since office and jet-fuel fires cannot melt steel (they simply don't burn hot enough) then something else was at play. This video shows experiments set up to show that that something else could have been thermate.

What a bunch of bull. The whole vid is just an excuse for the guy to show how how much spare time he has. Even a wood fired Kiln can get upto around 1400 oC which is around the melting point of steel. you'd think that 50tons of Jet A1 could do the job. And why do they say Jet fuel can't melt steel? Gas turbine engines are designed with massive considerations to cooling air to stop the combustion melting the TITANIUM turbine blades!

Also, What is this horse shit about molten aluminium being silver? It may be when it first melts but you can continue to heat it till it becomes white hot at about 1200 oC! Grrr I can shoot so many hole in this argument I dont even know where to begin!

Your language and attitude make it sound like you can't listen or be reasoned with, so there's not a lot of point arguing with you is there? You just sit there and rant then...

A Kiln is lined by FIREBRICKS, The silica firebricks that line steel-making furnaces are used at temperatures up to 1650°C (3000°F), which would melt many other types of ceramic, and in fact part of the silica firebrick liquefies. HRSI, a material with the same composition, is used to make the insulating tiles of the space shuttle. So... not exactly what you're saying is it?. The way fuel would react in an enclosed environment, lets.... Hmmm maybe an aircraft engine, would burn hotter that it would if it were to burn in an open area. You're being fat to generalistic regard how fire behaves, it act differently in different scenarios.

How about you consider my point rather than making a useless and unhelpful one of your own. Of course furnaces are lined by a material that can withstand the temperature inside. It would be a pretty fucking useless furnace if not. My point for those who can't be bothered to think is that wood in the right conditions can get up to extremely high temperatures, hot enough to melt steel so just think what a substantially more volatile fuel with much greater calorific value could obtain even in less than Ideal circumstances! Even if it were burning in an enclosed space like, say, I don’t know, A BUILDING!? With 50 metres more building between a fire and the windows? most of which is probably also on fire and not allowing any heat dissipation! The one point you make that is useful if I understand the lack of punctuation, is that fire behaves differently in different scenarios. Which makes this video way more generalistic than I've been and without the constrains of a character limit, since it clearly makes drastic geralisations like 'it couldnt get hot enough to melt steel' and 'molten aluminium is silver and not incandesant'

God, you're an angry man aren't you. How about I just call you a "Cock Lord" and say "you DO your mom" and leave it at that.

You stupid americans....of course your nazibüshlergovernment blew the buildings....you are either too stupid to see it, or pure evil, which makes it ok for you or too scared, which makes you hide in your shopping malls.....demand a real investigation....but I guess that is too hard for you.....good vid.

This is also assuming that the planes flew into the buildings on the exact floors that the Thermate was set.

Latest comment: To not take a definitive side. If there is this much doubt from both parties surely it is worth undertaking an investigation? I understand the emotions and above all the potential fall out. But would you not all rather live in the world of fact and truth than one of speculation and unease?
