I wish to say a few words about the new project Professor Leroy Hulsey has launched at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. (You may listen to my statement here.)
Many of you may have wondered why all the universities and high schools have been silent about the collapse of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers on September 11th, 2001. At our universities, we have a constant flow of seminars, conferences, symposia, presentations, defenses, lectures, etc., where everything is discussed in assemblies of peers.
Everything is discussed — except 9/11.
I will not go into details about the mechanisms by which this has happened. But you may take a look down the list of the scientists who actually have spoken out. And you will notice that a majority are retired — like myself.
Of course, the university is not dead. Just silent. Expertise and integrity are still abundant. One very living example of this is Professor Leroy Hulsey from the University of Alaska Fairbanks. He has undertaken the exciting project of modeling the collapse of World Trade Center 7.
I urge you to see Professor Hulsey’s presentations on this project. This is a scientist of the very highest competence and integrity.
Professor Hulsey’s project is unique in three respects. As already emphasized, it is the first independent, university-based modeling of the collapse of World Trade Center 7. This should have happened many years ago. But late is far better than never.
Secondly, it is transparent. Usually, scientists don’t like to be looked over their shoulder while they work. But in this case the public will be informed and invited to interact as the project proceeds.
Thirdly, this project is crowd-funded. University research like this must be funded because scientists have to eat on a regular basis. Normally, university research is funded by grants. But this research may be the first case of crowd-funding a university project.
The duration of this project is from now until April 2017. Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth has asked us to be sustaining supporters through that date. So, if you can spare a modest amount each month, please sign up for this option, though a one-time donation will also help.
We don’t know where Professor Hulsey’s research will lead or if it will provide a definitive account of the collapse of World Trade Center 7. That is the nature of unbiased science. But in Professor Hulsey’s own words, we will learn what claims made by the National Institute of Standards and Technology are possible — and what claims are not possible.
And it will be us, the members of the 9/11 Truth community, who made this unbiased research possible. And from somewhere, Sir Isaac Newton will look down on Professor Hulsey’s efforts, smile, and say: “Didn’t I tell you already?”
Phi Beta Iota: Professor Harrit is famous as the Nordic with integrity on 9/11. His own courts are fearful of US disapproval if they follow evidence-based rules of law. His point about most free-speakers being retired is an important one. We are deeply sympathetic to the fear that pervades academic as well as corporate ranks but at some point it is essential that citizens get a grip on Robert Steele’s mantra: “the truth at any cost lowers all other costs.”
