Melted Boots at Ground Zero Prove Abnormally High Heat
By The Anonymous Physicist
In my China Syndrome archived articles here, I have previously noted that the rubble surface, throughout much of the WTC, was hot for several weeks after 9/11, and the skyscraper basements were hotter still-- molten metal-- up to six months after 9/11. But the proponents of the DEW and OCT hangouts continue to scream that there were no high temperatures during or after 9/11—because their hangout mechanisms are cold, and thus their scenarios themselves collapse, if high heat were demonstrated during or after 9/11. So let us now examine other testimony specifically in the matter of responders’ melted boots.
First this Red Cross site notes that WTC Responders often had to replace their boots "twice a day" at a Red Cross respite center--which also provided other essentials including “first aid, food, clothing… and counseling.”
Here a responder, Brendan Butkus— a UConn Physics major and former Marine, reports that, “The asphalt was so hot it melted boots and tires.” Note that the last item perhaps provides a new understanding for some of the photos of vehicles whose tires were burnt and/or gone. Just as responders’ boots melted if they walked on certain areas, so too vehicle tires melted if they were driven on to certain areas, beginning immediately after the towers were demolished.
Here we learn that, “boots were especially needed. The pile of twisted steel and debris was STILL SMOLDERING AFTER TWO MONTHS, and the heat was melting the soles on the workers' boots.”
Then this video of now disabled NYPD officer/responder, Craig Bartmer, has him stating he had “5 pairs of melted boots.” He also talks about how quickly, after 9/11, remaining steel beams were carted away. IMO, this was because the steel beams would have yielded evidence of vaporization and/or neutron bombardment which would have been irrefutable proof of the nuking of the WTC.
Despite all this, history has taught us that we should expect to see the continuation of the “big lie”— more claims of “no proof" of heat during or after 9/11 at the WTC. The responders and everyone else saying this are liars or crazy.” But it is quite clear just who the liars and shills are.
