McClatchy – If a pyre were built to incinerate 43 bodies, how many tons of wood would be needed?

It’s a question that physicist Jorge Montemayor and materials scientist Pablo Ugalde have given thought to, and they have a precise answer: 33 tons. If tires were used for the pyre, 995 tons would be needed for incineration of all the bodies, they add.

The two scientists are among those seriously questioning Mexican government theories about the disappearance and apparent murder of 43 teaching-college students nearly four months ago, an atrocity still roiling Mexico.
