More Proof WTC Collapse NOT Controlled Demolition

Here are some more facts from Mike King about controlled demolition.

Good Science and 9-11 Demolition Theories provides a quote from fire captain Chris Boyle that indicated WTC 7 started sagging BEFORE the collapse and the 20-story hole in the south side gave the fire plenty of oxygen.

This quote from Mike King’s paper makes the point quite nicely: “All the evidence suggests that WTC 7 was unique in the history of fire-fighting because (a) structural damage was extensive, (b) vast openings in the south face allowing unimpeded airflow, (c) water mains had been severed by the collapse of the Towers, and hence almost no water was available to the Fire Service, and (d) the Fire Service had anyway made the eminently reasonable policy decision that their priority was to save lives not buildings, so it burned for 7 hours virtually unattended. Also, the bulging of the building prior to collapse is also prime evidence against the CD theory, because controlled demolition never produces such bulges.”

Mike King also reminds us that in controlled demolitions, explosives do NOT pulverize concrete; GRAVITY does.

Furthermore, Steven Jones says that “explosions were heard,” which automatically leads a person- Mike King states that the phrase, “ loud report” would be more accurate as explosives detonate with a rather distinctive sound.

Mike King also has this to say, “To say that these reports were ‘multiple loud explosions consistent with explosive demolition’ (my italics) is to further lead the reader. But has Jones taken the trouble to play the interviewees audio tapes of controlled demolition to see how closely the reports resemble the detonation of typical explosives used in demolition? Such explosives detonate with a signature ‘crack’ quite different to the loud reports that can be generated from a host of other phenomenon. Aviation fuel, spilling through the building and building up pockets of fuel-air mixtures in confined spaces, would detonate as a stray spark reached them from the fires above. It is known that floors collapsed prior to the main descent of the buildings: the sounds of steel buckling and breaking, and of concrete smashing onto lower floors, would all emit loud reports. Many other objects and devices commonly found in skyscrapers would explode when exposed to fires of up to an hour and a half: has Jones made any study of this in connection with conventional fires?”

Finally, as we see here, Mike King shows us that knowledge of controlled demolition disproves Jim Hoffman’s calculations.

Mike King provides a quote from Hoffman here: “‘the amount of energy required to expand the North Tower’s dust cloud was many times the entire potential energy of the tower’s elevated mass due to gravity. The over 10-fold disparity between the most conservative estimate and the gravitational energy is not easily dismissed as reflecting uncertainties in quantitative assessments.’”

However, Mike King also provides the facts with this quote: “This assessment that the dust cloud alone required ten times the North Tower’s gravitational energy (mgh energy) to produce is widely cited by the CD theorists, including Griffin, and is of course startling. But they do not point out that the mgh energy of the North Tower is alone equivalent to about 270 tonnes of high-explosive TNT, and for both towers together 540 tonnes. If Hoffman’s calculations are to be taken seriously, this requires a total of 5,400 tonnes of TNT or equivalent explosives, less the 540 mgh equivalent. Hoffman’s calculations would therefore require nearly 5,000 tonnes of high explosive to be packed into the two towers (5 kilotonnes of TNT equivalent)”

Perhaps the 9-11 “Truth” Movement would care to explain how one can get 5,000 tonnes of explosives (or 5,000 tonnes of anything else, for that matter) into the WTC without anyone noticing? Oops, never mind; answering that question would require “truthers” to be honest for once.
