WTC 7 Damage pic


8. Why did WTC 7 collapse, while no other known building in history has collapsed due to fires alone?

The collapse of WTC 7 is the first known instance of a tall building brought down primarily by uncontrolled fires.

21. Did debris from the collapse of WTC 1 cause damage to WTC 7's structure in a way that contributed to the building's collapse?

The debris from WTC 1 caused structural damage to the southwest region of WTC 7—severing seven exterior columns—but this structural damage did not initiate the collapse. The fires initiated by the debris, rather than the structural damage that resulted from the impacts, initiated the building's collapse after the fires grew and spread to the northeast region after several hours.

The debris impact caused no damage to the spray-applied fire-resistive material that was applied to the steel columns, girders, and beams except in the immediate vicinity of the severed columns. The debris impact damage did play a secondary role in the last stages of the collapse sequence, where the exterior façade buckled at the lower floors where the impact damage was located. A separate analysis showed that even without the structural damage due to debris impact, WTC 7 would have collapsed in fires similar to those that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001. None of the large pieces of debris from WTC 2 hit WTC 7 because of the large distance between the two buildings.

22. Would WTC 7 have collapsed even if there had been no structural damage induced by the collapse of WTC 1?

Yes. Even without the structural damage, WTC 7 would have collapsed from the fires that the debris initiated. The growth and spread of the lower-floor fires due to the loss of water supply to the sprinklers from the city mains was enough to initiate the collapse of the entire building due to buckling of a critical column in the northeast region of the building.

Another US ‘Success Story': The Creation and Abandonment of Kosovo

Thomas Harrington, February 28, 2015 AntiWar.com

Kosovo is falling apart at the seams, with it thousands of its citizens seeking desperately to escape life there by any means possible.

Haven’t heard about that one?

Perhaps that’s because the U.S. is almost wholly responsible for creating an independent Kosovo, and from there, the brutal and corrupt power structure that lords cruelly over the life of its people. The creation of an independent Kosovo in the name of democracy and humanitarianism is considered by the Clinton crowd to be one of the U.S.’s first post-Cold War foreign policy successes.

Under the direction of the late egotist Richard Holbrook, intellectual – if we can use that word – godfather of today’s Susan Rices and Samantha Power, a new U.S. protectorate was created in the heart of the Balkans, one of the more historically unstable regions of the Western world.

Of course, it had nothing to do with democracy and humanitarianism and everything to do, as has been the case with most major moves the U.S. has undertaken in the world since 1989, with the need to give the U.S. the ability to a) project power into every corner of the globe b) disrupt the possibility of any country or bloc of countries impeding its economic and military designs.

More concretely, it was part of the U.S. plan to make sure that the then newly unshackled countries of Eastern and Southeastern Europe would essentially be beholden to it, and not their EU neighbors... snip-continue>

Please remember that the 78 day bombing of Kosovo was a Project for the New American Century (PNAC) war- the first of many.

Camp Bondsteel

Camp Bondsteel is the main base of the United States Army under KFOR command in Kosovo. Located near Ferizaj in the eastern part of Kosovo, the base serves as the NATO headquarters for KFOR's Multinational Battle Group East (MNBG-E). The base is named after Vietnam War Medal of Honor recipient United States Army Staff Sergeant James L. Bondsteel...

...The United States Army has been criticised for using the base as a detention facility, and for the conditions faced by the detainees there. In November 2005, Alvaro Gil-Robles, the human rights envoy of the Council of Europe, described the camp as a "smaller version of Guantanamo" following a visit. In response, the US Army stated that there were no secret detention facilities in the Camp...

The U.S. and its NATO underlings undoubtedly will be vastly emboldened by their "success" in ensconcing themselves in Kosovo, Bosnia and the other remnants of Yugoslavia—Croatia, Slovenia and Macedonia. We can expect rapid steps to further fragment the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY). We can also expect the new mission of nuclear-armed NATO — intervening over so-called "humanitarian concerns" against sovereign nations—to be implemented elsewhere, with great speed, especially in the Caspian Sea/Caucuses areas of the former Soviet Union...snip

World’s first grid-connected wave power station switched on in Australia, supplies desalinated water

Sciencealert.com MYLES GOUGH 23 FEB 2015

The world’s first grid-connected wave power station has been activated off the coast of Western Australia (WA). After more than a decade of testing and demonstrations, Australian company Carnegie Wave Energy has switched on a pilot project that has begun feeding wave-generated electricity into a local WA grid.

“This is the first array of wave power generators to be connected to an electricity grid in Australia and worldwide,” said Ivor Frischknecht, CEO of the Australian Renewable Energy Agency, in a statement. The Agency has provided $13 million of the $32 million project.

The company’s technology named CETO after a Greek goddess of the sea converts ocean swell into zero-emission renewable power and zero-emission desalinated freshwater.

The company says its system is “different from other wave energy devices as it operates under water where it is safer from large storms [and corrosion] and invisible from the shore”.

The round, submerged buoys are tethered to seabed pump units, which are installed at a depth of between 25 and 50 metres. Waves crashing into the buoys drive the pumps, which push pressurised seawater through a pipeline beneath the ocean floor to an onshore hydroelectric power station. Here, the high-pressure water drives a turbine and generates electricity...snip

If you haven't already seen this

you might find it interesting

The complete historical timeline of how the US plotted & engineered the Coup in Kiev, starting in March 2013

Planning for the February 2014 Coup D'Etat in Kiev started in March 2013 (or earlier).

This amazing speech in Ukraine's Rada (Parliament) details how 300 people, under the direction of the US Embassy in Kiev, were to mobilize and manipulate social media in order to provoke protests that would lead to a Coup to oust Yanukovych and then start a Civil War.

"MUST WATCH: Nov 2013 (pre-Maidan!): Ukraine Deputy has proof of USA staging civil war in Ukraine".

This speech was made on 20th November 2013, i.e. the day before the sudden suspension of talks with the EU
So this was BEFORE the Maidan protests ever got going because everybody up to this point thought that Yanukovych was going to sign the EU association agreement.
The speech above specifies that 5 "TechCamps" had already been conducted by November.

As reported in the Guardian in 2011, The US government are utilizing propaganda & social media manipulation on an industrial scale

Training and mobilizing of 300 people started in March 2013 (or earlier) under the direct supervision of the US Embassy in Kiev.

Watch Toyota build the Future- a look inside the Motomachi Factory in Aichi

February 26 2015 Independent Online.za

Aichi, Japan - Toyota president Akio Toyoda has unveiled the assembly line that is making the first mass market fuel-cell car.

The world's biggest carmaker plans to produce 700 units of the four-door Mirai sedan - powered by hydrogen and emitting nothing but water vapour from its tailpipe - by the end of December.

Production of the car, whose name means “future” in Japanese is scheduled to expand to 2000 units in 2016 and 3000 units in 2017.

The Mirai, which is being made at Toyota's Motomachi Plant in Aichi, central Japan, can travel about 650km without refuelling, about three times further than an electric car, and its tank can be filled in a few minutes like petrol engined vehicles.


In January Toyoda delivered a Mirai to the Japanese prime minister's office..

Germany is leading the way in hydrogen fuel infrastructure

The Parliamentary Secretary of State to the Federal Transport Minister, Katherina Reiche, refuels a fuel cell electric vehicle for the first time with Hydrogen made from renewable energy at Berlin Brandenburg Airport.

27 February 2015 HydrogenFuelNews.com

Government agency highlights Germany’s growing hydrogen infrastructure

Germany may soon have the world’s leading hydrogen fuel infrastructures according to Germany Trade and Invest, an economic development agency that is part of the country’s government. By the end of the year, the country aims to add an additional 50 hydrogen fuel stations to its existing infrastructure, which has been taking form over the past few years. The government agency believes that more than 400 hydrogen stations will be in operation by 2023.

Country continues to work on bolstering its infrastructure to prepare for the launch of fuel cell vehicles

Germany has shown strong support for clean transportation, particularly when it comes to hydrogen fuel cells. These energy systems have come to play a significant role in the auto industry, helping automakers develop a new generation of zero emissions vehicles. In order for these vehicles to find any degree of commercial success, however, a hydrogen infrastructure must be established. Over the past few years, the German government has been investing in the construction of new hydrogen fuel stations, working with automakers to do so.

Automakers show a great deal of interest in hydrogen fuel cells...

Germany is leading by example when it comes to building a hydrogen infrastructure

Germany is currently leading the way in hydrogen-powered transportation support in Europe. The country has served as an example to its neighbors, showing how a hydrogen infrastructure can be established in a relatively efficient and economic manner. Because of the country’s growing hydrogen infrastructure, it will likely become a very prominent market for automakers that plan to release fuel cell vehicles in the coming years...SNIP MORE

In Britain, The Royal Mail

has been privatized for a pittance. And look at who was involved:

Royal Mail privatised for up to £1.5bn less than City estimates of its value

Estimates of value ranged from £4bn to £4.8bn ahead of government sell-off for £3.3bn, business department reveals...

...The investment banks that advised on the sale, Goldman Sachs and UBS, told MPs on the business select committee in October that the flotation took place when financial markets were jittery and with the threat of a nationwide strike looming over Royal Mail...

And here, who is in charge of selling off Postal property? DiFi's husband.

Riling many here is the exclusive deal with CBRE Group, whose chairman, Richard Blum, is married to U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.).

Senator Dianne Feinstein with her husband Richard Blum at a Democratic election party in San Francisco, November 7, 2006.

A recent e-book by investigative journalist Peter Byrne details allegations of below-market sales to CBRE clients and investors. (CBRE has declined to comment on those claims.) A June audit by the Office of Inspector General raised unrelated "conflict of interest" concerns and noted "poor oversight" of the CBRE contract.

Too big to jail.

Attention Robert Reich: I'm not and will never be "Third Way".
