Today is 9/11, so I figured it was a good time to ask this question - about what could be called “China’s 9/11”
An official report on the Tianjin explosion states that 800 tonnes of ammonium nitrate was part of the explosion. If we just take that as an example and compare it visually to similar chemical factory explosions with known quantities of chemicals, then it seems significantly off.
For example this explosion included 6 million pounds of “rocket fuel”
How does the explosive power of rocket fuel compare to ammonium nitrate? So in this example, it had about 3 times as much rocket fuel as Tainjin had ammonium nitrate. Anyone know the explosive detonation velocity of jet fuel? It would be useful to have some visual comparisons of known events - at least to be able to eyeball the claims in this report. But at cursory review, it doesn’t seem to add up.
But now watch this!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cG9f6-FRjHs&t=10s
And apparently the death toll was highly underreported - some say on the order of many thousands…
