If anyone wants to actually discuss the letter, among many strange claims that KR makes is that when the gas temperature is 1000C the steel temps would be no greater than 250C

Bare steel, meaning un fireproofed steel, would indeed reach the same temperatures as the gas temperatures, this is shown in the Cardington Tests(pg 39, fig 21):

But for the fireproofed elements it is much more complicated and for him to just pull the number 250 out just doesn't work. He is once again trying to use the the steel sample data as an upper bound for the steel temps reached, a blunder which I thought most truthers were past by now.
