A brave spirit speaks out – what really happened that day….?
Inquiring minds want to know….Rob Simpson’s Conscientious Projector series has a re-showing of Experts Speak Out, tonight at 5pm at the Library. This film reviews the collapse of World Trade Center Building #7….followed by a Skype meeting at 6:45 with one of the experts. What really happened that day? Rob’s not a conspiracy theorist, and offers information that has important questions that still haven’t been answered, including: How in the world could that happen?
Here are Rob’s remarks, to fill you in on what this is about:
“Dad, if you won’t look at this, there is no hope for the rest of us.”
A challenge coming from one’s own child. Does that sound familiar?
Gery Warner of Vancouver, BC had heard rumors….but he really, really didn’t want to “go there.” Besides, he was busy running an international business.
Gery runs International Tentnology Corp out of Vancouver, BC. He employs many people including some top engineering PhD’s. He himself is a structural engineer. But, because of his son’s plea, he finally took several days off to examine technical evidence and conclusions presented to the public in a report by NIST (the US National Institute of Standards & Technology).
Responding to public pressure, NIST released a 2008 Report into why World Trade Center Building #7 collapsed. Ever hear of it? 47-stories in less than 7 seconds. It happened on 9/11. No one wants to ponder this building’s demise. No one wants to talk about it. Mass media won’t touch it. So, most citizens have not even heard about it.
WTC #7 was not hit by an airplane. It suffered a couple of smoky office fires in the morning, most of which had gone out. Then suddenly at 5:30 PM, 47 stories went into a free-fall….flat as a pancake in 6.5 seconds. It didn’t tip over. It fell into itself exactly where all its strength had been a split second before. It was as if hundreds of supporting steel girders vanished in the blink of an eye.
NIST concluded it was all due to office fires.
Gery knew something was amiss here. How could they come to such a conclusion? He decided to engage his team of engineers at International Tentnology. Skyscrapers are designed to stay standing when there are fires. That way, people can escape without fear of the building collapsing around them. Firefighters count on it.
By law buildings are filled with fire retardant furniture and rugs. Any fire burning inside would not have been very hot…maybe 750 F. It takes a blast furnace to melt steel. It takes temperatures over 2700 F to do the job. Obviously, 2700 degrees cannot come from 750….the second law of thermodynamics. Your stove top does not turn to molten metal no matter how long you leave the flame on.
And that wasn’t all that didn’t make sense.
Spurred on by curiosity, Gery’s team became involved with a peer-reviewed group known as Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth. As of today, over 1700 worldwide have reviewed and endorsed their collective research. There numbers are growing by the day. All are calling for a new investigation.
At last month’s Conscientious Projector screening at the San Juan Island library, we got to do a live Q&A with Gery. He shared with us how this was just the beginning of their discoveries.
Through the Freedom of Information Act, they acquired all the computer modeling created by NIST as part of their 2008 explanation into the collapse of WTC Building #7. Spending their own time and money, they began their own private investigation. They studied NIST’s computer model of the building’s collapse for almost two months.
What they found astonished them further. There were literally 1000′s of errors built into that model…the model NIST used to “explain” the building’s failure.
There were so many errors that Gery told us that it could not possibly be the result of incompetence. He declared the NIST report to be an out and out fraud.
After that our Q&A got really interesting.
Interacting with someone involved in independent forensic investigation was insightful, to say the least. Here was someone who was brave enough to subject himself to our questions and scrutiny. It was an amazing and informative evening.
Because this story is so important, there will be an “Extra Projector” screening this Friday at 5:00 PM of the Architects & Engineers new DVD. There will also be another live SKYPE Q&A with a different member of the Architects & Engineers investigative team.
Come and see what we can find out with our questions and/or challenges. Doubters are welcome. Those who have heard a different story are welcome.
It will be in the Library Conference room starting at 5 PM.
For those who saw the film last time, but want to be a part of the new Q&A,
plan to arrive by 6:45 PM.
At the end of our last SKYPE interview, Gery left with us a final thought:
A lot of effort has gone into keeping the technical details hidden from the public and discrediting those who question it. Based on their research, one can only assume it must be really important to some group of people somewhere that the public does not figure things out.
But, that may be too late now. This could be the second “shot heard round the world.”
(No one can tell us WE don’t live in interesting times.)
Please come. Bring friends.
We won’t be discussing politics.
