Volcano explosions are nature’s nuclear explosions. Both types of phenomena show the same characteristics:
- enormous output of energy: the eruption of Mt St Helens was said to be 10,000s times more powerful than the Hiroshima atomic bombing
- molten material produced: lava is produced in volcanoes, and molten metal is seen in nuclear explosions. Apparently molten metal was seen during the clean-up of Ground Zero at the WTC. Molten metal flowed down channels like a “foundry”
- meteorite-like formations are produced in both phenomena due to tremendous heat. In nuclear explosions, fused masses of concrete, glass and metal are seen
- high temperatures are seen in both. In WTC, boots were in high demand because they kept melting even two weeks after the event; cars were toasted – the sides facing the WTC were burned more severely
- blast forces knock down objects within a pressure radius; in the WTC attacks, vehicles were blown and knocked over, people felt a tremendous pressure knocking them over, glass was blown everywhere, 300 ton I-beams were flung like matchsticks by the blast force of the WTC explosions and skewered buildings some distance away
- dustification: concrete building material and objects within the WTC buildings were vaporized in large quantities. Large quantity of dust is a notable feature of the WTC attacks. Ash covers a wide area around a volcano
- voluminous clouds – mushroom clouds and surge clouds – are seen in both types of explosions
- landscape is turned into a flattened moonscape by both phenomena

Bright glow is seen. It’s so bright it’s blinding. This is due to the thermal energy released in nuclear explosions that is converted to radiant energy. The glow of a nuclear explosion has been described as “brighter than a thousand suns”.
Pyroclastic streamers are shooting out. Dustification is already proceeding even before objects and building materials hit the ground.
Mushroom clouds, some large, some small, are continuously produced, showing there was a series of explosions.
On top of the pyroclastic cloud, 30-ton I-beams are thrown like matchsticks from the tower laterally. The force of the explosion causes the I-beams to impale themselves into adjacent buildings some distance away.
A pancake collapse is straight downwards with negligible lateral forces. In atomic explosions, lateral force is exerted from the blast. The blast radius can be quite considerable in size.
Smoke from two distinct squibs that are halfway down from underneath the main line of collapse which moves downwards, can be seen shooting out from the tower. Other squib explosions can also be distinguished.

Problem with fire theory – Lack of fire
NIST says the main cause of the collapses of WTC1, 2 and 7 was high-temperature fires. However, these towers do not appear to have raging fires in them before they suddenly collapsed. WTC1 fell within 1 hour of being hit by a plane. Fires in WTC1 were in two floors at the time of the collapse. No flames shoot out of the windows.
Two towers – one on raging fire, the other one only minimal fire

The North Tower falls at 0:27 in this video.
Area of building on fire before it fell was small
A still from the video above: North Tower 22 seconds before it fell. Only a small area of the building is on fire. Most of the building was not on fire. This picture shows the north-east face of the tower, the face that the plane hit. The outline of the hole made by the plane strike can be seen a little further up from the fire. Flames are barely visible and are only on a couple of floors. The initial fire that flared up when the plane made its impact seems to have mostly died out by this time in the video was reached.
Extent of fire in North Tower at 10:28am, time of fall
The North Tower fell at 10:28am. Diagram from NIST shows the extent of the fire at 10:28am, the time of the tower’s collapse. Fires are present on two floors: the 92nd and 98th floors.

There is very little fire in WTC2 on the right before it collapses. On the other hand, there is obviously a lot of fire in the Windsor Tower before it starts collapsing. Only the top six floors of Windsor Tower collapsed, and mainly the masonry. The steel skeleton of the building was still intact at the end, including the top six floors, when the fire had burned out, almost 24 hours later.
Windsor Tower burned for almost 24 hours

Fire started at 11.00pm on the 21st floor. On the right, close up shot of the fire
The fire ravages its way up to the roof.
By 3am, 4 hours after the fire starts, the top six floors are completely gutted and start collapsing.
Top six floors crumble and the next morning a black hull is left
