He extrapolates there was 20 tons of thermite used. But he admits he DOESN'T know how much it would take to burn through a beam.
At 2:05:00 he states "Probably 10 tons of thermite." But later at 2:11:30 he ups it to 20 tons.
You can pick holes in the truther arguments certainly, but you can also pick a ton of holes in the official line, which is the point.
On Behalf of the People of the United States of America, the undersigned Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth and affiliates hereby petition for, and demand, a truly independent investigation with subpoena power in order to uncover the full truth surrounding the events of 9/11/01 - specifically the collapses of the World Trade Centre Towers and Building 7. We believe there is sufficient doubt about the official story and therefore the 9/11 investigation must be re-opened and must include a full inquiry into the possible use of explosives that might have been the actual cause of the destruction of the World Trade Centre Twin Towers and Building 7.
Still today, 1,100 families have never gotten anything of their loved ones.

Wouldn't you think that after selling his story for 8 years he would have the answer to that one simple question?
He evades any answers that could lead to him being proven wrong on any point.

Wouldn't you think he would have his facts down?
Especially since his whole theory rests on thermite!
All he does do, is repeat the exact same second and third hand stories that give the appearance of supporting his claims.
He has explained fairly technical events in language that regular people can understand.
For those willing to think for themselves, Gage provides a good explanation of the failures of the official story.

I don't see your point, other than the demonization of Gage.
Yes they used explosives, no doubt. IMO they used thermite and nuclear devices, but I was not involved in the planning or execution, so I don't really know. The nuclear theory explains all of the strange things observed there.

Had there been nuclear explosives used, it would have been what is generally termed as "obvious." The buildings would not have collapsed from the impact points. There would have been a really bright flash, a very loud noise and the resulting shock wave would have killed many more people, damaged many more buildings, and left readily detectable residual radiation. It makes more sense to claim that death rays from space or Lord Voldemort did it.
The North Tower did NOT collapse from the impact point.
Architects and Engineers are trained to design buildings that function well and withstand potentially destructive forces. However, the 3 high-rise buildings at the World Trade Center which "collapsed" on 9/11 (the Twin Towers plus WTC Building #7) presented us with a body of evidence (i.e.controlled demolition) that was clearly outside the scope of our training and experience.
They actually admitted that the collapse of the buildings was out side their scope of expertise!
An object that is in motion will not change its velocity unless a force acts upon it.
highly questionable science
“We need to be here with the board members of the American Institute of Architects so that they cannot ignore this evidence any longer,” Gage said.
