Chris Mohr, Richard Gage Debate

On March 6th, at the Boulder campus of the University of Colorado, Colorado 9/11 Visibility hosted a debate between Richard Gage and Chris Mohr.

The question: What brought down the three World Trade Center skyscrapers?

Richard Gage, AIA, is a San Francisco Bay Area architect and a member of the American Institute of Architects. He has been an architect for over 23 years and has worked on most types of building construction, including numerous fire-proofed, steel-framed buildings. His quest for the truth about 9/11 began in 2006, and he subsequently founded Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth.

Chris Mohr, investigative journalist and advocate of the “natural collapse” theory, is a sincere seeker of the truth who has extensively researched the collapses of the World Trade Center (WTC) buildings, consulted with independent physicists and engineers, and passionately argues that the buildings collapsed due to the plane impacts and fires.

During this debate between Chris Mohr and Richard Gage, the discussion explored not only the collapse of the twin towers, but also that of 47-story World Trade Center Building 7, which collapsed completely at 5:21 pm on 9/11/01. For those of you not familiar with the collapse of WTC7, this is a riveting, don’t-miss controversy. We look forward to a dynamic, respectful, and thoroughly informative exploration of these topics.

Chris Mohr talks about material coming down at 100 mph. But what has to happen for falling material to reach that velocity?

In Earth's gravitational field near the surface it takes a mass a little more than 4.5 seconds to reach 100 mph. But that is assuming no air resistance to significantly affect the speed. In that time the mass would travel 324 feet. That would be 27 stories of height of the WTC. Now how much mass, in steel and concrete, would there be in 27 stories of the WTC? I didn't notice any mention of the conservation of momentum in that so called DEBATE.

Wouldn't any mass trying to accelerate through 27 stories of steel and concrete encounter just a little bit of resistance even if it was 90% air? So if the top of the north tower fell one story how did it ever get up to 100 mph? Mohr is shooting himself in the foot and depending on the audience not thinking.

You have to waste time listening to this so called debate and think about it just a little bit to figure out that it is a stupid waste of time.
