But that's conspiracy theorists.

Most seem unaware of the basics - possibly genuinely. Steel frames are vulnerable to fire and their design - esp high rise - is an economic compromise - risk managed and relying on active fire fighting. Hence the 'fire rating' expressed in hours - which gives time for occupant escape and commencement of necessary active fire fighting.

And the occupants had escaped WTC7 - primary objective met.

Of course the objective to save the building and prevent damage to neighboring properties is an objective as well and shouldn't be ignored.

Since I'm not a fire fighter, I suppose that is a second creed, behind saving lives.

Seconded. Mark Basile has most likely forgotten about this long ago.

The people he scammed took money from.......

....another story.

Why not skip the counting, as it looks to me that a "new" report will never occur. JAQ.

Why is anyone still focused on this? The study clearly won't be released. Get over it.

In other news, there is a study that was just released. I wonder why the reality deniers don't want to talk about that.

Come on reality deniers. Come out of the woodwork again. It's time to expose you all for the frauds that you are.

no evidence from 9/11 truth for nearly 20 years

9/11 was solved on 9/11, Get over it. Your fantasy version of 9/11, which you can't explain, failed. Get over it.

It takes a few seconds to add up the months Mark's Study is late.
It appears you know the "real" story of 9/11, but can't prove it, and you took a year off and failed to make progress, the same as Mark's study of woo.

Again you like to project. You are the reality denier, and you don't have a clue you are the reality denier, as you blindly believe the fantasy claims of CD from Gage and his scam of CD.

You can't name who did 9/11, you can't prove CD, projecting your reality denial on others. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychological_projection

Oops, double projection.

You can't present evidence for CD, that is fraud.

Is this another 7 day presentation of BS, and then you go away for a year after failing to present reality based evidence.

How much hearsay do you have this time? 7 days worth, or what? A lot of "or what".

We are quite comfortable with Basile failing to back up the Harrit/Steven Jones hoax.

Basile isn't all that bad.
He presented a bit of data more than 10 years ago, when he showed how a particular red/gray chip from the same WTC dust source that Steven Jones originally used, burned "vigorously" upon being heated to an undefined temperature.
And THEN he also showed data, for the very self-same red/gray chip, which proved it contains less than 1.7% aluminium. This result alone means that the "vigorous" burning, the observed heat release, cannot possibly be the result of a thermite reaction.

Basile debunked "nanothermite" 10 years ago. He just didn't understand it.

I personally believe he finally came around to understanding that the chips are really just paint, and was too ashamed to admit it, so he quietly disappeared.

Anyway, the thermite hoax is debunked. Has been debunked for many many years.

Get over it.

Fully agreed. ThermXte is comprehensively debunked and there is no purpose served by trying to resurect it.

And my favourite observation. The topic of thermXte (any variant) is only of interest in the context of CD. And there was no CD. So even if there had been 100 tonne stockpiles of thermXte at Ground Zero the issue is moot - irrelevant - until and unless someone proves CD. Which ain't gunna happen anytime soon .
