What May Have Melted The WTC Vehicles
by Ted Twietmeyer
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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.
- 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
