Ep 14 – Our pet Tinfoil hat theories
measles outbreak in BC thanks to the anti-vaccination movement (or the government trying to control the population)
related stories about avalanches and rock slides that have closed highways in the BC interior. Sections of the TCH have been closed reducing access to smaller communities in the area and stressing emergency response teams

Alan – Does Jet Fuel Melt Steel Beams? This theory started circulating shortly after the 9/11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Centre in New York City. The theory claims that since jet fuel burns at 800 to 1500 degrees fahrenheit, it is insufficient to cause structural damage to the steel
beams, which requires 2750 degrees of heat. There are two items I want to address with this: first, is that the steel didn’t need to melt. It just needed to lose strength. That starts at around 850 degrees, and loses 50% of its strength at about 1100 degrees. Once the metal gets soft, the weight of the building does the rest. Second point is the oven effect. While the fuel itself may only burn at 1500, by being concentrated in a concrete building that heat builds up much higher.
By the same token, a gov’t who can’t even run a balanced budget can scarcely be capable of running an airtight conspiracy a few months into a term.

Ian – Atrazine (second only to Roundup) in the water, turning the frogs gay.
Used in Corn and Sorghum production. Leaches into water supply. Causes fertility issues, cancer, and hormonal changes in women. During studies it caused some frogs to change genders. Was Alex Jones way off? Nope. Did he latch onto the wrong thing? (Gender switching frogs) Yup, and not very politcally correct about it. Not the way to prove a point….
“As of 2001, atrazine was the most commonly detected pesticide contaminating drinking water in the United States.:44 Studies suggest it is an endocrine disruptor, an agent that can alter the natural hormonal system”
Causes Cancer, birth defects, and reproductive rates….
Safe, debatable… But there was also a time when Thalidamide and Agent orange were considered good ideas too. The world would also starve without modern chemical and fertilizer uses.
