Because (1) the steel did not melt and (2) the temperatures were much hotter than 500F. I've been over that a lot. What he said--that steel does not melt or even weaken much at 500F--is true. The problem is that the building was not 500F, and he does not have the knowledge necessary to argue otherwise (when every other expert who has analyzed the building has said the opposite).
