So now you're endorsing one of Greening's old theories, that he's probably retracted since? There have at least been actual lab tests that completely debunked him, showing that molten aluminum and rust will NOT cause a spontaneous thermite reaction.
I don't think you're reading up on the articles you're posting, not all of us. If you knew the back-story behind Greening and the 911myths.com site (basically a bunch of people posting on forums just like you and me, except running a website), you probably wouldn't be spamming them.
The Wright Brothers were derided as frauds for years after they were regularly doing flying demonstrations. The reporters, scholars and critics refused to attend the demonstrations, since they knew heavier than air flight was impossible. One of the better biographies of the Wright Brothers was written by Fred C. Kelly as an apology for calling them frauds and refusing to attend the demonstrations.
“Scientists always scoff at new ideas, and claim that they are 'impossible.' Mainstream scientists of the day always miss the boat for new technology. You might think people would have learned this by now. The case of the Wright brothers among many others, proves to be highly enlightening. They were debunked by Scientific American as frauds. The fact that the Wright brothers had given public demonstrations to thousands, did not change the minds of anyone at Scientific American magazine. Because they all knew for a fact, that heavier than air travel was against all the known laws of physics, and would not be possible for 5000 years. After all, 'if it sounds too good to be true, __ ____ __ ____’ (Fill in the blanks, if you know the lyrics.). So heavier than air travel must be impossible.
"Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former." -Albert Einstein
"There is not the slightest indication that nuclear energy will ever be obtainable. It would mean that the atom would have to be shattered at will." Albert Einstein
Thomas Edison - abused inventors like Tesla and put his name on their work. See what Edison has to say... "They never will try to steal the phonograph. It is not of any commercial value."
Thomas Edison (c. 1915)
"Fooling around with alternating current is just a waste of time. Nobody will use it, ever." Thomas Edison, 1889
"Man won't fly for a thousand years." - Wilbur Wright, to brother Orville after a disappointing flying experiment (1901)
"Heavier-than-air flying machines are impossible."
Lord Kelvin, president, Royal Society, 1895
"X-rays are a hoax." -Lord Kelvin, engineer and physicist (c. 1900)

Scientists and science are not the final court of appeal on anything. Science is usually playing a game of catch up with unscientific observation.

Would the presence of other materials have an affect on the color of the molten material? Like..aluminum mixed in with computer monitors, carpets, drapes, papers, toner catridges etc..... if so.... did Dr. Jones do this?
