|The conference will be held in room 2050, the Chanshun Auditorium, of the Valley Life Science Building on the University of California Berkeley campus. The conference will run from 10 am to 10 pm.|
The one-day, free-to-the-public, academic 'Lifting the Fog' Conference (10 AM - 10PM) will provide a focused, principled, and rigorous examination of the many unanswered questions surrounding the destruction of the World Trade Center skyscrapers. Using the extensive bodies of surviving evidence that document these events, Conference presenters will apply the time-tested scientific method to evaluate theories of the attack, both official and alternative.
In addition to tackling the controversial questions of what brought the skyscrapers down, the Conference will provide a session devoted to the developing story of the public health catastrophe of exposures to the Ground Zero environment. The fact that the EPA allowed politics to eclipse science in their issuance of false assurances that the air was safe to breathe is a sobering example of the fallacy of trusting official conclusions regarding highly charged political events being used to justify wars.
