“Jet Fuel Can’t Melt Steel Beams” is an assertion made by September 11th, 2001 attack conspiracy theorists that the burning fuel from crashed planes would not have been able to melt the supporting beams of the World Trade Center. The claim is widely mocked online …
No kerosene fire can burn hot enough to melt steel.” The posting is entitled “Proof Of Controlled Demolition At The WTC.” FACT: Jet fuel burns at 800° to 1500°F, not hot enough to melt steel
Metalworker Shows Why ‘Jet Fuel Can’t Melt Steel Beams’ Is Such a Dumb Argument. “Jet fuel can’t melt steel beams” is one of the most widely known arguments that 9/11 was an inside job. It’s also one of the dumbest. Of course while his point that steel beams don’t need to literally melt in order to lose their integrity is solid
10:57 PM – 05 Dec 2015. The theory goes that since ignited jet fuel in the 9/11 explosions didn’t get hot enough to melt steel — jet fuel burns at 800 to 1,500 degrees, but the melting point for most steel is 2,700 degrees — the collapsed buildings must have been an inside job.
Sep 15, 2015 · Taken from 2002 documentary “How The Twin Towers Collapsed”, we look into how the steel framework for the World Trade Center Towers were affected by the large volume of flames.

May 05, 2015 · no, but a jet fuel fire can soften steel. the beams in the twin towers didn’t need to melt to fail. they only needed to be softened enough to bend under the weight of the floors above them. once the bending started, total failure was inevitable.
The problem with the assertion is that, while it actually is true, it’s also completely irrelevant. Burning jet fuel is not hot enough to fully melt steel. Burning jet fuel, however, is more than hot enough to weaken steel. Weakened steel is enough to wreck a skyscraper.

In fact, the jet fuel did start fires hot enough to melt the steel beams. However, the narrator believes the conspiracy theory. By declaring “Nah, jet fuel can’t melt steel beams” she declares that she will not be fooled by mainstream “lies”. Speaking with Blunt, Maq describes the song:
Jet fuel can not melt steel beams. So after the Truthers who pointed this out started to get some traction, we started to get this Greek Chorus telling us that it was not necessary to MELT the steel, but only to weaken it to bring the towers down.
Jet fuel can’t melt steel beams. They say that the Twin Towers shouldn’t have collapsed because jet fuel can’t melt the steel beams that the towers were made out of. Although it’s true that jet fuel can’t melt steel beams, the Towers Collapsed because the steel beams were weakened from the fire, not melted. The conspiracy theorists are too retarded to realize this fact.
