Column Failure Would Not Level the Towers

column failure:
buckled by weight OR
shattered by explosions?
  • All 287 columns would have to have weakened to the point of collapse in an instant to cause the telescoping seen in North Tower.
    Asymmetric damage cannot produce such a symmetric result.
  • Even if simultaneous column failure caused the building to start crushing itself straight down, it would either stop, or be deflected to the side and topple.
  • Of collapse causes other than controlled demolition, only earthquakes can cause the simultaneous damage needed to cause total collapse.
