The official account of 9-11 does not give a sound explanation of where any extremely hot material in the WTC collapse piles could have come from, nor does it give a sound explanation for the unusually persistent heat at Ground Zero.
Numerous misleading and misinforming statements are disseminated to conceal this dilemma of the official account. In Part I several sources are compiled relating to the exceptionally high temperatures, and/or to the persistent heat at Ground Zero. Most of these sources compiled have a background in science or in engineering.
Some sources are statements by people who participated in the management of Ground Zero. The background of some of the sources is given in detail. In the subsection “Thermal images” some features of published thermal images are addressed. Some of them are in conflict with the assumption that the high temperatures/persistent heat phenomenon was due solely to burning fires

In Part II disinformation strategies, techniques and arguments are addressed that serve the purpose of avoiding a thorough public debate about the phenomena of “molten steel”, exceptionally high temperatures and persistent heat at Ground Zero. The articles and excerpts discussed are from NIST, from so-called “debunking” websites, and from mainstream mass media.
It will be shown that the statements and suggestions by NIST and “debunkers” in respect of these phenomena are misleading or wrong. In some of the cases the wrong or misleading statements or suggestions are directly stated. In these cases it will be shown why a statement or suggestion is wrong or misleading, and indications will be discussed that the authors must have been aware of the fact that their statements or suggestions are wrong or misleading.
These statements or suggestions have the quality of disinformation1. With respect to the other cases it will be shown that misleading suggestions are spread by the use of language that is purposely manipulative.
In addition to the articles and excerpts that are directly related to the high temperature/persistent heat phenomena at Ground Zero some mass media articles are discussed that deal with these phenomena implicitly by dealing with the broader subject.
