So far, more than 10,000 tons have been removed, a tiny fraction of the skyscrapers’ ruins – a combined total of 220 stories of gleaming steel weighing some 1.25 million tons, plus an unknown number of surrounding structures.
Ten thousand tons in 4 days? Let’s be generous and say three days, assuming that they weren’t really able to work much on Tuesday. That means it’s taken them 3 days to go through 1.25% of the rubble, right? Is my – notoriously bad – math incorrect? Doesn’t that mean it will take them a year at that rate? I can’t even believe it.
