9/11 Scams: The Junk- Science of Dr. Judy Wood - Part 3 of 4

[Or, the almost complete lack of adherence to the traditional scientific methodology displayed by any and all of the "scientists"  currently involved in "serious" 9/11 research.]

Was There A Natural Phenomenon Present On 9/11 That Fully Explains Hurricane Erin's Movements on 9/11? 


So enough of Prof. Wood's 6 hour "misrepresentation" of Erin's official time/position data. 

I believe that there is a far more serious omission of information regarding Dr Wood's claim that Erin was artificially controlled on 9/11.

As I said in my introduction, Dr Woods' claims about Erin originally interested me because I live on the SE coast of the US where hurricanes hit or pass by fairly frequently, and have lived here for 20+ years, and so have a fair amount of experience with and interest in the need to track hurricanes accurately.

Another,  Directly Related Natural Phenomena Occurrence on 9/11?

I was fairly sure [from memory] of one very important [for hurricane trackers] natural occurrence influencing the weather on the East coast that day , and was interested to see whether or not Dr Wood had considered it/ included it or accounted for it in her research. To date, it seems she has completely ignored it, out of ignorance of the natural phenomena itself, or with deliberate intent.

What Important Naturally Occurring Phenomena Was Omitted From Dr Wood's Research on Erin's Movements?

Five words: "eastward traveling, humongous cold front"!

That is, a large mass of very cold [arctic], dry air [i.e. a high pressure system] moving in the opposite direction to the hurricane[ i.e. West to East].

Historically, A Regular, Fall U.S. Weather Pattern

In the US in the fall, these large masses of high pressure, cold dry air typically originate over the North Pole and Western Canada, and then spill down East of the Rocky mountains and usually move West to East across the US, often traversing the entire continent in a few days as they typically reach further and further South while traveling Eastward.

This pattern of cold air movement is a regular part of the annual fall weather scenario for the continental US.

Check For Yourself

You can review the regularity of this September through October weather pattern for yourself for any year 2001- through '13 here. 

These very large masses of cold air are also common in the spring as well. Here, for example, is a recent [April 1st, 2013- as I revise this article], weather chart of  a very large West to East moving U.S. cold front [n.b. no hurricane present at this time] : 
Fig. 1 A screen shot from the National Weather archives showing an April 1st 2013 cold front that has been traveling from West to East across the U.S.


Fact: Any Experienced Hurricane Watcher Knows About The Effect on Hurricane Systems of Large, Fast Moving Masses of Very Cold Air!

The plain truth is  that any fairly intelligent , experienced weather watcher [e.g. coastal inhabitants of SE US and the gulf regions], knows just through prior personal experience that a large, steadily moving mass of high pressure, cooler dry air traveling West to East in the US will start to influence the  speed and direction of any hurricane approaching the Eastern US seaboard from the East [i.e. traveling approximately East to West towards the East coast of the US] sooner or later - and in fact , that the hurricane will always be deflected away from the cold front as long as it [the cold dry air] continues to advance Eastward.

Was a Large Mass of West To East - Moving, Very Cold Air Present on 9/11?

As a matter of fact, yes. And there was even another one that immediately preceded it:
Fig. 2 Archive For 09/04/01 [click on image to enlarge]

If you take a look at the national weather archives starting 09/04/01 above, you will see a large mass of cold air starting to form in Western Canada. This is the mass we will be following [ direction, development ] over the next few days, through am 09/11/01. Also notice 2 other high pressure areas and cold fronts to the East of the most westerly one we will be mostly watching.


Fig.3 Archive For 09/05/01 [click on image to enlarge]

Now take a look at the map for the next day 09/05/01 above, and you see that the most Westerly cold air mass over Canada has straightened out a little and now runs at an approximate 20 degree angle upwards across Canada. Meanwhile, another large mass of cold air is pushing South down the East coast. [but its the most Westerly cold front you need to watch!].





                Fig.4 Archive For 09/06/01[click on image to enlarge]
Next, above is the archive map for 09/06/01. You can see that the cold front that started high up and to the West has now spilled down East of the rockies into the US and has started to move Eastward, pushing a large mass of moist, warm air [outlined in yellow] ahead of it. Meanwhile the other mass of cold air already over the East coast has pushed down and offshore. [This other front would probably have already been influencing Erin's speed and direction to some degree.]
         Fig 5 Archive For 09/07/01[click on image to enlarge]

Above is the archive for 09/07/01. Here we see the huge mass of cold air has extended both Eastwards and further South, and that the warmer moist air [low pressure,large yellow outline + smaller red outline for severe thunderstorms] being pushed ahead of it is has increased in size as well .
N.B. Archives For the Next Two Days [09/08/01 and 09/09/01] Are Missing From Source Site.

Unfortunately the archives for the next 2 days [8th and 9th] are missing from the archives and so we must now skip ahead to the archive for 09/10/01.
[you can check availability for yourself at: http://www.hpc.ncep.noaa.gov/noaa/noaa_archive.php ]



                       Fig. 6  Archive For 09/10/01[click on image to enlarge]

This one [above] dramatically shows how far, and how fast this HUGE air mass had traveled over the previous two days, and how deep [i.e how far South], it had penetrated by the 10th . As you can see, on the morning of 09/10/01[i.e.about 24 hours prior to the events of 911] it extended all the way up the Eastern seaboard into Canada , and all the way down into the Gulf of Mexico and beyond, and that it at this point covered most of the US , East to West.

Two Important Questions For You

At this point , I have 2 questions for you :

Q. [1]:  Based on prior performance as seen in the illustrations above, approximately where do you think this huge mass of cold dry, high pressure air was going to be the very next day, on the morning of 911? Please consider both its prior observed speed, and prior direction.

Q.[2] : What do you think such a vast mass of cold dry air will do to a hurricane trying to move in almost the exact opposite direction, when "push comes to shove" given how it [i.e the huge cold front] is already seen to be treating the warm, moist air just in front of it?.

As I said before, any reasonably intelligent hurricane watcher knows for a fact that given a continuation of the cold air mass' direction , that in this scenario it is hurricane Erin that would have to give way, as other hurricanes preceding it always have done under similar circumstances, and as other hurricanes in the future always will. It is inevitable.

And Don't Forget The Other, Previous Large Cold Air Mass- a Natural "Double Whammy"

And , don't forget that Erin more than likely had already been somewhat influenced [i.e. slowed, changed direction] by the cold air mass that immediately preceded the even larger cold air mass that followed,and which we have mostly concentrated on here.[Nature's equivalent of a left jab followed by a knockout, right cross?]


                        Fig. 7  09/11/01 Archive[click on image to enlarge]


So here we are on the morning of 911. notice that the cold air mass has now moved entirely offshore from North Carolina on up. {My only problem with this archive is that it does not show the blue line extending southwards into South Carolina and Georgia [where I live] when I know for a fact that we experienced exactly the same conditions, that morning as the majority of the East coast i.e. cold dry air, crystal clear blue skies].

My Conclusion: Erin's Directional Change Was an Entirely  Natural Occurrence -Not an Artificially Controlled Event

It seems logical to me that Erin's directional change is very easy to explain - it was changed via a very powerful natural phenomena, that is, an extremely large mass of cold dry air steadily moving from West to East, and not by any mysterious, artificial means that were somehow directly related to the deliberate demolition of WTC 1 and 2, as Dr Wood has claimed.

For myself, and others who watch hurricanes closely merely because of survival instincts, there is absolutely no mystery about Erin's change in direction from predominantly NNE to NNW during the early morning [around 2am] of 09/11/01; any intelligent east coast inhabitant, and more importantly, any weather professional or even a lowly weather bureaucrat could reasonably conclude well ahead of time, and with almost no shadow of a doubt, exactly how Erin would perform on the morning of 9/11.

Conclusion: Erin - An Assured Fate 

As Dr Wood's own data shows [fig.7, in part 2 above], and as the NOAA data displayed in this java plot reveals at around 2 am on the morning of 09/11/01 Erin's  assured fate was confirmed as, after coming to an almost complete stop in the cooler waters of the NE, and after also being slowed/ affected by  previous, successive cold fronts,  it was forced/bounced/deflected away from NYC in a new NNE direction [a 45 degree change in direction ], by a much larger, still steadily advancing, much colder, much dryer naturally-occurring, high pressure air system, which had over the 6 previous days, made its way across almost the entire continental US from West to East.

End of part 3 .  Part 4 of"9/11 Scams: The Junk- Science of Dr. Judy Wood"

N.B. Update Commentary 06/01/13: In the comments section [below], Anon. said :

"You stated that, “To date, it seems she [Wood] has completely ignored it, [the cold front] out of ignorance of the natural phenomena itself, or with deliberate intent.”

"I refer you to her book, page 399. Here’s what Wood had to say about the cold front:"


“At the same time, there was a cold front moving from the Midwest towards New York City that would have slowed the hurricane and turned it northward, but how sure could meteorologists have been about the timing of the turn? How sure could they have been that the storm wouldn’t pose a serious threat to “Cape Cod? If Erin had stalled a little bit longer where it was, storm surges would have flooded JFK and LaGuardia airports as well as Cape Cod. Not only is New York City near sea level, but so is most of Long Island. Evacuation from these areas would be a mammoth undertaking and could not be organized at a moment’s notice – and yet the public remained uninformed.” ". 

So Prof. Wood has now devoted one whole paragraph to the consideration of this cold front in her book :-) . Whoop de do!  

But still, no serious examination/consideration of the phenomena as a possible explanation for Erin's movements has ever been entertained by Wood, either in her book, nor in the 10 web pages devoted to Erin at her website [I just checked today] - and, as I understand it,[I have not read the book], certainly no graphics in the book illustrating the progression of this truly massive front from West to East, as I have laid out above. 

 An Afterthought

Obviously, this mention of the cold front in the book is merely an afterthought on her part, possibly induced by my original 2008 article, nothing more. She has never to date considered the front as a possible explanation before she reached her "scientific conclusions" regarding Erin's movement on 9/11, nor seriously explored the possibility. Some scientist!

    Clearly, Wood did not ignore the cold front or the influence it would have on Hurricane Erin.

    Those that did ignore the cold front on the morning of 9/11 were ABC and CBS. They did not show the cold front on their weather maps and did not mention it. NBC and FOX did show it on their maps but only FOX discussed it. If you want to hear the actual weather reports on the morning of 9/11 go to:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=kMPtNtKsxK8

    This video also shows the lack of media coverage that Hurricane Erin received compared to the media coverage of two lessor-strength hurricanes Gloria (September, 1985) and Irene (August, 2011) that also threated NYC. The difference is staggering.

    It is significant to note that the weather services had miscalculated earlier on Erin’s path. It was predicted to pass within 15 miles of Bermuda and a hurricane warning was issued. The prediction was wrong by about 100 miles, fortunately in the safe direction. Predicting the weather is certainly not a precise science. In the prediction of Hurricane paths it is particularly risky business with serious consequences. It seems to me that it would be impossible for any one or any agency to know with absolute certainty that this Class 2-3 hurricane that days earlier had not conformed to its predicted path, that had been heading straight for NYC for the previous 4 days and that was supposedly larger than Katrina when it arrived off the coast of NY on 9/11, would stop, make an abrupt about-face and leave rapidly enough that it had virtually no impact on NYC. Impossible that is unless they had an ace-in-the-hole – something that they knew about that we didn’t – besides the fact that the hurricane was out there in the first place. – TEL

    I agree, predicting the weather is imprecise. However, as I state in the article, anyone of intelligence and with powers of observation who has studied the weather over a number of years out of necessity because their lives literally depended on it [because they lived in a part of the country at risk to hurricanes] , knows exactly how a hurricane must act _every_ time it is confronted with a vast mass of very cold air moving in the opposite direction.

    Of course, if you have not lived in such an area and have no regular, life threatening, annual experience with these types of weather phenomena, you probably have no idea what I'm talking about.

    However, even the numbskulls who make up the weather "predicting" bureaucracy, being "professionals", are very well aware of these phenomena ,and what must always happen when "push comes to shove" and a massive, fast-moving cold front traveling in the opposite direction meets a hurricane head on. :-)

    And of course, Prof Wood apparently never checked with even one of these professional bureaucrats, nor with any other meteorologist _before_ concluding what she has concluded to date.

    Isn't a real scientist supposed to seriously consider and explore these types of issues [i.e. concurrent meteorological events that might explain the one being focussed on] _before_ reaching a "scientific " conclusion? Apparently not :-) .

    Where is the evidence that Wood has ever carried out _any_ sort of serious investigation/consideration of the known effects of fast-moving cold fronts on hurricanes _before_ she formulated and published her conclusions to date- a couple of paragraphs in her 2012 book[ but nothing at all on her website, which pre-dates the book by at least 4 years], thats it?

    Yet sadly, for some of us, this constitutes "serious scientific investigation". :-)

  4. Onebornree: Let’s say in September 2001, you were living in a ground-floor apartment in Manhattan. You were one of the very few people in New York that even knew of Hurricane Erin’s existence. You also knew from past experience that your life depended on becoming an expert in hurricane behavior, so you were keeping close track of Erin. You knew that since 9/7 Erin had been making a bee-line straight for your front door at a decent clip: average of 10 mph.

    At noon on 9/10 you were eating lunch with your wife and your 2 little children. (Let’s say you have both) You had just checked with National Hurricane Center and knew that earlier that night Erin had been upgraded from a Class 2 to a Class 3 hurricane with sustained winds of 100-105 mph: the highest they had ever been since, well… Erin was named Erin.

    Anyway, your wife says to you, “Honey, I’m a little concerned about this hurricane. Don’t you think we should go to my mother’s house. I mean just to be on the safe side?”

    You answer, “Not to worry, sweetie. This cold front is gonna stop that hurricane dead in it’s tracks. Gonna bounce that hurricane right out to sea like… well…a bouncer throwing a drunk out the door.”

    “But what about a storm surge? Your remember when our house flooded that time. I don’t want to go through that again!”

    Trust me, darling. Ain’t gonna happen. I KNOW about this stuff. The odds of that hurricane touching us are about as good as the Twin Towers vanishing before our eyes!”

    I was not apologizing, just quoting, as the link makes very clear .

    Anonymous said : " for what exactly???"

    It depends on the clients wants/needs, and whether I believe I can actually help them get what they want, or not.

    Anonymous said : " how much do you charge?"

    Sometimes its FOC, sometimes simple trade-outs work for both of us. In any case payment is normally not due unless the client gets the results they are happy with, unless we both agree beforehand to go by an hourly rate, or, say, 50% of total sum is initially due beforehand. So it varies.

  9. I know you weren't apologizing. Was just giving you a littIe poke. I'm not apologizing either when I say, sorry, judging from the quality of thinking and writing that you display on this site, I think it best if you take some night classes and try your hardest to get a high school diploma. Seriously, Onebornfree, it's embarrassing. Maybe none of your friends have the guts to tell you, but it's the truth.
