Another Pathetic Attempt by Jones and Ryan

Their latest paper has been published in, of all things, an environmentalist journal.

Get this bit:

EPA’s Erik Swartz stated that 1,3-DPP was present at levels “that dwarfed all others.” Swartz went on to say—“We’ve never observed it in any sampling we’ve ever done” (Garrett 2003).

Ooooh, very mysterious! But when you click the link to the original source, you find:

One molecule, described by the EPA's Erik Swartz, was present at levels "that dwarfed all others": 1,3-diphenylpropane. "We've never observed it in any sampling we've ever done," Swartz said. He said it was most likely produced by the plastic of tens of thousands of burning computers.

Bolding added for emphasis. So there is no big mystery at all. Nice little quote mine, there, Dr Jones!

Over at JREF, there is discussion of whether the paper was peer-reviewed (there is no evidence of that), and it is noted that the editorial staff is heavy with professors from the University of Guelph, which is a noted hotbed of 9-11 Troof, with two members of Jones' Scholars for 9-11 Truth and Justice coming from that University and two others cited on the Patriots Question 9-11 professors page.
