What May Have Melted The WTC Vehicles

To come up with a theory to explain "toasted vehicles" at the WTC we need to have a solution that explains the cause of the damage found with these vehicles. It clearly appears that the damage is the result of a weapon, and not the result of an ordinary fire or ignition source.
 
First, let's briefly look at other phenomena of a highly unusual nature. With spontaneous human combustion (SHC) events, we rarely see the body is consumed 100%. Usually the area below the knees is relatively intact. It is believed that the reason is a lack of fat in this area of the body. However, the cause of the initial combustion event remains somewhat of a mystery. Some theories state that SHC is the result of metabolism which is out of control for unknown reasons. There is a well documented case of a man who was simply driving down the road during the day, when his left arm began to smoke. Fortunately he didn't die from it, but no cause for it was found by doctors. Only SHC could be the cause.
 
I am not directly comparing destroyed vehicles at the WTC to SHC. This is intended to strictly serve as an analogy only. There is always an explanation for bizarre phenomena, whether it is fully understood or not. In the case of the WTC, damage occurred to vehicles located some distance away from the WTC on Roosevelt Dr.
 
At the WTC, there is strong evidence that a shaped (see papers by Dr. Ed Ward, MD on Rense.com - ed) nuclear device(s) were used. In building demolition, charges are often placed near the base of the building on columns. These columns are often weakened by removing some of the material, to insure that cutting charges will work correctly. Charges are angled to slice the column diagonally, so the weight of the building will insure it slides off at a slight angle, and doesn't simply drop straight down and stop moving.
 
None of this would be required when using a nuclear device. All building columns in the vicinity (at least several hundred feet) would be vaporized almost instantly, bringing the building straight down. Steel found in molten form months after the collapse is a sure sign of extreme heat, probably nuclear in origin. However, few have considered there is yet another effect of using a nuclear device. It's an electromagnetic pulse. The power of this pulse unleashed by a nuclear detonation is almost unimaginable.
 
EDDY CURRENTS
 
What does an electromagnetic pulse do? First, we need to look at the effects and uses of eddy currents induced by a strong magnetic field. There are amusement park rides such as Kinda-Ka that use eddy currents for braking. This braking system works on the eddy current principle. An array of stationary magnets is raised under the aluminum plates mounted on the bottom of each car as they approach the station. This creates powerful high current, low voltage eddy currents in the aluminum plates as the cars pass over the magnets. These currents form temporary, opposite magnetic fields that cause attraction to the passing magnets under the tracks. Cars are slowed to a complete stop. This is a perfect self- regulating braking system as long as the magnets are raised at the right time.
 
In older electric meters there is a silver disk. This disk directly drives gears which move the hands on the dial. That disk is actually made of aluminum. It is rotated by invisible magnetic fields from coils inside the meter. The more current your home draws through these coils, the faster the disk rotates. This is yet another example of eddy currents put to a practical use.
 
Rail guns use eddy currents to deform heavy copper rails, which accelerate a projectile to fantastic speeds. These guns used for mainly for research, and must be rebuilt after each firing to remove the deformed copper bars.
 
And else do eddy currents create? HEAT if the currents are strong enough. The stronger the eddy currents, the more heat which will be generated. Although magnetic fields are being created, they are temporary in aluminum because it is not magnetic, but paramagnetic. This means aluminum will be affected by magnetism, but it cannot be magnetized. Water is paramagnetic as well. Almost anything that conducts electricity but will not be attracted to a permanent magnet can be considered paramagnetic.
 
With this understanding of eddy current effects, let's look at the damage seen at the WTC and see how eddy currents can fit the observations.
 
 
 
 
 
Missing mirrors - all vehicle mirrors in use today are a glass or plastic plate with an aluminum reflective coating on the back. This coating is conductive to electricity and hence, eddy currents. A strong magnetic pulse induced into the mirror would cause tremendous stress as the field interacted with the steel mirror housing. The glass would shatter, blowing out most of the glass and the surrounding gasket. It appears that a small fragment of the mirror can still be seen in the housing above. Note the metal trim around the wing window on the driver's door appears as though it was overheated as well. Although the steering wheel appears to be intact, it is possible the steel body of the vehicle has shielded the steering wheel from the pulse. Any magnetic pulse will have less strength with the square of the distance, so it is possible this truck was near the outer fringes of the damage threshold.
 
What we still do not know is what damage occurred INSIDE apartments and businesses in the surrounding buildings.
 
 
 
 
 
This windshield damage may have resulted from an intense magnetic field in the metal trim around the windshield which became magnetic and interacted with the steel body. Two headlights appear blown out, and two others do not. It's also possible another vehicle was parked between the blast or pulse source and the driver's front side of the truck. This could shield the driver's side headlight from the magnetic pulse. There may have also been a pressure wave involved as well that caused this damage, as considerable trash is seen embedded in the grill. It cannot be easily determined whether a blast wave or a magnetic pulse blew out this windshield. This vehicle was clearly not exposed to the pulse magnitude which other vehicles were, or the damage would be far more. Again, the distance and orientation from the pulse source is not known.
 
 
 
  Other vehicles have missing engine blocks, which probably vaporized from tremendous eddy currents. Intense heat would flash-ignite volatile fluids under the hood such as grease on engine parts and fluids like transmission fluid, power steering fluid, gasoline in the fuel system, brake fluid and engine oil. A tremendous fireball under the hood would completely destroy the engine and the entire front of the vehicle as we see above. And this is exactly what we see with many vehicles. Note how the fire stops right at the junction of the left front fender and driver's side door. This is consistent with other vehicle photographs.
 
Note that steel can become extremely hot from eddy currents, even though steel is magnetic and not paramagnetic. However, steel has a far higher melting point than aluminum. It would hot very quickly with a pulse of sufficient strength to easily ignite paint and rubber.
 
We must answer another question - why would certain vehicles have damage and not others? Why would only certain parts of them be damaged, and other areas remain pristine? The answer lies in magnetic SHIELDING. Magnetic pulses are like other electromagnetic energy, which radiates out from a source in a straight line unless they wrap around back to their source (such as a bar magnet does.) However, these magnetic pulses were not generated with a bar magnet, but by a very different means. When a magnetic field hits steel, the energy becomes trapped and barely penetrates it. By drawing lines across the tops of cars with damaged and undamaged areas, we can determine the general direction and height of the source of the pulse. Initial observations using vectors show that the nuclear device or pulse source was not underground, but higher up. This is also is supported by the standing floors at ground level after the building's collapse.
 
 
  
 
"SACRIFICIAL VEHICLES" PROVIDE SHIELDING FOR OTHER VEHICLES AND SHOW PULSE VECTORS
 
A vector is simply a line that shows direction and usually has an arrow. Arrows are not shown above, in an attempt to simplify the image. The direction of force is from upper left to lower right. The notated image above provides a possible explanation for the location of the source of the magnetic pulse, and why some vehicles were damaged and others were not. This parking lot may be the best evidence in support of my theory.
 
Yellow lines indicate the pulse(s) blocked by the rear row of vehicles. It appears the entire outside of all rear vehicles were destroyed. Note how several hoods on the rear row of vehicles have white dust or ash, indicating an intense heat originating from under the hood. This is probably caused by the engine block vaporizing, and the white dust may be aluminum oxide. If the vehicles are still around somewhere in a junk yard, some simple lab tests will confirm this.
 
White lines show the pulses that reached the vehicles in the foreground.
 
Orange shapes around each car show the damage threshold line. The cars are basically undamaged below these lines and some might be repairable. If it wasn't for "sacrificial" vehicles at the rear, those in the foreground would have been completely burned.
 
Note that white and yellow lines are not meant to be a literal interpretation to show size of the pulse, how many lines of force hit each vehicle, etc... Each line is intended to show only the direction the pulse(s) came from. Regardless of whether this parking lot is close to the WTC or not, it clearly shows that the nuclear device (or pulse source) was high above the ground. If the pulse source were close to the Earth, then vehicles in the foreground would have been completely shielded from the pulse.
 
In reality, magnetic pulse lines would have been so dense that if all of them were to be drawn here, you wouldn't even be able to see any vehicles in the picture. It would be a sea of lines.
 
 
 
Van (right) provided some shielding for the blue pickup truck (center.) Rear body of the pickup truck above the van does have severe damage. Dust on the ground below the vehicles appears to show these vehicles were in place when the WTC collapsed, except for the white pickup truck (far left) which has no damage at all. Because of the direction of the pulse, the windshield on the blue pickup truck is largely intact and undamaged.
 
Vehicles missing steering wheels are explainable using eddy current theory. Most steering wheels have a circular steel rod in the center. In electrical terms, a steering wheel is a shorted 1 turn coil. If you induce a sufficiently powerful magnetic pulse into any shorted coil, it will vaporize very quickly because of excessive current (amperage.) The hot steel core inside the steering wheel would ignite the surrounding molded plastic, and the steering wheel would be completely gone. The time required to vaporize a steering wheel in this way is dependent on the length of the pulse and the power level. Missing or vaporized steering wheels are perhaps some of the best evidence for a pulse or weapon theory.
 
CONCLUSION
 
Evidence is overwhelming that either a nuclear device or advanced weapon technology was used at the WTC. Missing engine blocks along with only partial destruction of the same vehicles show that this type of damage was not caused by heat. There may have been a blast wave that hit some of these vehicles in conjunction with a magnetic pulse. A powerful magnetic pulse(s) appears to have taken place, and the source clearly was not at ground level but much higher.
 
The power level required to flash-ignite vehicles is almost beyond comprehension, especially at distances of several hundred feet away. This would require a multi-gigawatt power levels to cause such destruction.
(1 gigawatt = 1 million-million watts.)
 
We cannot fully determine the height of the pulse source from images found thus far, but it certainly this is not the result of a building(s) collapsing to the ground.
 
Nor is it the result of plane(s) crashing into the WTC more than 1,000 feet above.
