It's not a scientific "paper", it's an opinion piece, an article. Similar to Shermer's articles in Sci-Am. More information than formal scientific investigation.

Thus no peer review.

Did they also link you to the editors' follow-up statement that explicitly disclaims using said opinion piece as a basis for conspiracy theories?

I'm going to guess not...

Honestly thought the thread title was "sued for definition". From a quick browse, don't think I was necessarily wrong.

This week I've received two unsolicited mails from him, peddling his talks and referring to some obscure article in a popular scientific "journal".

He must be desperate for attention!
Hey, is it possible to see those mails?

Perhaps "quote" them here.

Emne: Artikel i Europhysics News On The Physics of High-rise Building Collapses


Harrit pic 1.jpg


Kære fysikere, kemikere, arkitekter, ingeniører m.fl.
TIL ORIENTERING:
European Physical Society (http://www.eps.org/) er paraply-organisation for de nationale, fysiske selskaber i Europa.
Det har et tidsskrift, Europhysics News (http://www.europhysicsnews.org/), med ca. 25.000 abonnenter.
I august/september nummeret bragtes en inviteret artikel:
”15 years later: On the physics of high-rise building collapses”
(http://www.europhysicsnews.org/artic...2016474p21.pdf)

Udover de faste abonnenter er artiklen i skrivende stund downloaded i fuld tekst 455.000 gange!
http://www.europhysicsnews.org/artic...016474p21.html
Det er mange!
Efter sigende er den hermed den mest downloadede fysikartikel overhovedet.
NIST har svaret:
http://www.europhysicsnews.org/compo...ding-collapses
I november/december nummeret af Europhysics News nummeret bragtes to læserbreve:
http://www.ae911truth.org/images//PD...am_EPN_LTE.pdf
Tidligere ansat i NIST, Peter Ketcham har også udtalt sig offentligt:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pb2NOBbD88c
Endvidere er der oprettet en side for NIST-whistleblowers med tilbud om juridisk assistance:
http://www.nisterrors.com/
Denne situation vidner om en stor – men latent – bevidsthed om disse begivenheder blandt naturvidenskabsfolk.

Med venlig hilsen

Basically the first one is about the article in the journal Europhysics News. Actually does not say much, but links to the usual twoofer stuff.

Second is an invitation to two of his lectures in Skanderborg and Aarhus, Denmark. Also without any groundbreaking information of any kind, just the links to the lectures.

The last part of the second is instructions on how you can stop receiving his nonsense.

No arguments just links.
