Richard Gage Opposed to NIST Safety Regulations
Usually I just make fun of these idiots, but the recent debate between Richard Gage and Chris Mohr shows just how scary these people can be. I suppose we should be thankful that Gage is now a full time nutter and not an actual working architect anymore. Based just on this exchange regarding the NIST World Trade Center 7 report, he should have his license pulled. From around 1:52 into the debate.
Mohr: Do you also oppose the fire and safety regulations that NIST has proposed in these reports?
Host: Well we have one minute now for Richard to discuss that, perhaps Richard would like to…
Gage: In fact I do, there are billions of dollars that are spent needlessly as a result of the recommendations that NIST forced, that were forced on several other building codes.
Mohr: That would scare me.
Gage: It is needless, and architects and engineers, 1400 of us are crying for a new investigation.
