    One of the more absurd arguments is the idea that there was a "Pyroclastic flow" during the collapse. This is easily debunked. You will note not one person was poached at ground zero. Pyroclastic flows are a minimum of 100C, or 212F.

    The gas is usually at a temperature of 100-800 degrees Celsius. The flows normally hug the ground and travel downhill under gravity, their speed depending upon the gradient of the slope and the size of the flow.

    Pyroclastic flow - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Not ONE person, even the ones trapped INSIDE the towers, complained of dusty air burning their skin. Trees were left green next to the towers. Paper floated around ground zero without being burned.

    When I brought this up to one conspiracy theorist, he produced some photos showing burning cars and such. Yet I easily found photos which show their photo was being taken out of context.



    Are the cars, papers and trees in this photo made of asbestos except for the ones on fire? If you think there was a pyroclastic flow and photos of fires at ground zero is your proof then that's exactly what you must think.

    It's obvious that the collapse rained paper on fire and even hot steel which could easily explain the spotty fires. Unless the pyroclastic flow hopped from one place to another.

    Critical thinking skills will tell the average person there was NO pyroclastic flow but since this was brought up by a "scholar," thinking seems to be optional.

    What really makes this argument absurd is the amount of explosives needed to turn that much concrete into dust. (We are only talking about 10% of the total concrete in the building anyway. There was a massive amount of gypsum as well, which conspiracy theorists would like you to forget.) The argument is the pyroclastic flow (which there is no evidence of) was created by explosives. (Some have suggested an absurd amount of thermite) If the incredible amount of POTENTIAL ENERGY (Energy the building had just standing there due to the stored energy of lifting the steel into place.) which converted to Kinetic energy (as it collapsed) is not enough to create the dust cloud, then the assumption is explosives must have created it. How much? And why would they overload the building with powerful explosives? Why put more than would be needed to cut the steel? Why put enough to cut the steel AND create a pyro show? As you can see above, the collapse released enough energy to equal 272 TONS of TNT. Why wouldn't this amount of energy be enough to cut the steel connections AND create some dust as the floors impacted each other 110 times per building?

    More on the pulverization of concrete

    Another absurd straw man is that they say Greening is saying the collapse weakened the steel. Nowhere in Greening's paper does it say the collapse "weakened" the steel. The massive potential energy converted to kinetic energy in the collapse and was MORE than enough to destroy the connections. No "weakening" of steel needed. The only weakening was on the fire floors which had its fireproofing blown off. This has NOTHING to do with Greening's paper.

    Reader contribution:

    Just a few numbers that make 9/11 conspiracies nearly impossible:


    J.L. Hudson’s in Detroit, Michigan, the tallest building ever razed, was 439 ft. (26 stories)
    ImplosionWorld.com

    WTC 7 was 570 ft. (47 stories) 1.3 times the height of the J.L. Hudson. 7 World Trade Center - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    WTC 1/2 was 1,368 ft. (110 stories) 3.12 times the height of J.L. Hudson.
    One World Trade Center - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    World Trade Center - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    So, on 9/11, three buildings were razed with perfect precision. One was 131 ft. taller than the record tower and the other two (minus cell phone antennas) were 929 ft. taller than the record holder.

    The Hudson Building “It took us 24 days with 12 people doing nothing but loading explosives…” James Santoro – Controlled Demolition Incorporated"
    http://www.history.com/media.do?id=most_hudsons_implosion_broadband&action=clip

    Even according to the Loose Change guys, the heightened security and bomb-sniffing dogs had only been lifted for 5 days.



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Of course, the construction is different and the towers would need less explosives if they were the same height. However, the towers were much taller and had more columns to cut as a result. Even if they did have the same amount of columns it would still take over 72 days with 12 people doing nothing but loading explosives. That's just one building. Add the second tower and WTC7 and you see where this is going. It quickly becomes absurd. As if this absurdly complex plan was the ONLY way to scare Americans.

    I'd like to thank Slugman from Political Myths blog for his contribution.

    There are MANY testimonials that speak of breathlessness and even a few more of people that are cooked. How did this firefighter put the lady "out" with the can? Was she really burning? Was it perceived burning? Was she suffering from the effects of microwaves?

    I don't know, but the OP has already shot their credibility by obviously not doing the homework.

    I can post more too and make you look more foolish since I have time...

    .....WE WENT IN THROUGH THE REVOLVING DOORS
    THERE WAS A MINI LOBBY THERE WAS LIKE BROWN HAZE
    SMOKE IN THE LOBBY LOT OF THE MARBLE SLABS WERE
    FALLING OFF THE WALL CRACKED THERE WERE TWO PEOPLE
    IN LIKE THE LITTLE SECTION OF THIS LOBBY ONE GUY WAS
    BURNT PRETTY MUCH TO CRISP AND HIS JACKET WAS THE ONLY THING LEFT ON HIM PUT THAT OUT WITH A CAN AND
    THEN THERE WAS LADY OFF TO THE RIGHT OF US THAT WAS
    ALIVE BUT SHE WAS SCREAMING THAT SHE COULDNT BREATHE
    SO HIT HER WITH THE CAN AND COOLED HER DOWN......

    AT THAT POINT I JUST HEARD THUNDEROUS
    SOUND AND LOOKED UP AND SAW THE BUILDING START TO
    TOPPLE START TO SWAY AND IT WAS SWAYING OUR WAY AND
    WE JUST YELLED RUN AND TRIED TO RUN AS FAST AS WE
    COULD AND I SAW AN SUV PARKED AND I FIGURED THAT THAT
    WOULD TAKE SOME YOU KNOW SOME OF THE HIT BECAUSE I
    KNEW COULDNT OUT RUN THE BUILDING AND BY THE TIME
    IT TOOK ME TO BREAK THE BACK WINDOW OF THE SUV MY
    SAFETY COAT WAS ALREADY ON FIRE MY SOCKS WERE ON
    FIRE WAS ALREADY COVERED WITH SOOT AND ALL SORTS OF
    PARTICLES THAT WERE COMING OUT OF THE BUILDING

    I CLIMBED INTO THE TRUCK AND THATS WHEN PIECES OF THE BUILDING
    LIFTED THE TRUCK AND CAME THROUGH THE FRONT
    WINDOW AND FLIPPED THE TRUCK OVER AND WAS TRAPPED IN
    THERE FOR APPROXIMATELY 25 MINUTES TO HALF HOUR
