Having fought wildland fires for the better part of 35 years, that many fires, this early in the season, starting within a short period of time and clustered as they are, without any significant lightning, it is definitely man caused, and without any other extenuating circumstances, most likely a "public-private partnership", meant to instill climate passion.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to start a fire, especially when they can flood the zone with a high quantity, so any handful of climate wackos, given half a day of information, could easily pull this off.

But knowing when and where, would require some level of training, experience and organization. For that, I would lean towards the CAN gov't using the easily radicalized as their implementation.

I will have to take a closer look.

Thank you for sharing that perspective. Interesting to note that my hypothesis is consistent with your more informed expertise.

Why/how they'd start all at once is what intrigues me. It could still be arson, but how would it benefit them to coordinate men on the ground to do this all at once? I mean, who cares if there's a few minutes delay in starting each fire, they're still being started. The only way I see that this could be started simultaneously would be through 5G satellites. Thoughts?

You could do it very easily with drones and incendiary devices.

As to why? The Eastern seaboard was blanketed with a giant cloud of smoke and all the NPCs are yipping about climate change.

Many of my neighbors are masking up, and I can see how it fuels the narrative. What I meant was why all at once...at least from that tictoc video it seemed instantaneous...too obvious. Then again so was building 7. Drones could certainly explain it. To me the pattern seems so instant and perfect, like those of directed energy weapons.

If you want to create a single giant cloud of smoke, you need to light all the fires at the same time.

John, the same thing happened in the US Western states during the BLM(not run by B's)/antifa riots the summer of 2020. I had a time lapse video of the fires starting on satellite from North to South over 1000 miles, always at night.

Of course it was God angry that his angelic son George Floyd had been so struck down in the prime of his felonious potential. The liestream news claimed "Dry Lightning" since there were no storms.

"Dry Lightning" over 1000 miles overnight. I shit you not.

Seems legit. Isn't climate change amazing?

On the logistical front, it is common practice in Australia to lob incendaries from a light plane (the euphemistic 'control burns'). Three or four planes, requiring a pilot each and some lazy sod lobbing a delayed incendiary every ten minutes or so, would do the trick in Canada. Emulating catastrophic planetary destruction is basically a light hobby for those thus inclined. Only declaring Greta Queen of the Universe will end this righteous punishment.

I've seen the directed energy weapon suggestion, but it seems unnecessary to me. All you really need are drones dropping matches.

I don't know if a match would do it without accelerants. In June things aren't so dry. That's why that graph looks that way. Unless Quebec has been hot for a month or more, but it appears to have been cool and mild. Even lightning strikes don't always start wild fires. They burn out after x or xx amount of hectares. They already used DEWs in Paradise and Santa Ana and near Tahoe last summer. Probably Oregon in 2019 and so on. Easy to use, gets us labeled "conspiracy nuts" and gets the job done. The fact we're even having this conversation is insane. Just look at these fuckers...

It's been pretty dry around here, actually - hasn't rained in a couple weeks or so. That said, I'm being a bit facetious about the match. But standard incendiary devices dropped by drones seem like they'd be enough to get the job done, if you don't want to be nearby when the fire starts.

Not to add fuel to the fire, but technology has improved the match. This device has been in use for well over 50 years;

Sure. But a quadrotor can fly a few km into the forest and drop the incendiary with no witnesses.

If it is arson, then I tend to think it was committed by the Canadian government for the reasons to which you refer. Actually, and more accurately perhaps, those parts of the state machine that work in symbiosis with the parasite class who make up the NGO complex. These creatures are entirely dependent on "current things" for their income and status so it makes sense that, every so often, they have to remind the weary and cynical public just how essential they really are.

By the by, a lot of our problems resolve down to this parasite class and not elected governments as such. Mass immigration is another example.

I live in the central Midwest and we have billboards along the highway that have, for the past few days, said some mumbo-jumbo about "an ozone alert." Obvious climate doomer propaganda, and until I read this article, I didn't know about the fires in Canada. It wouldn't surprise me if there's a correlation there.

Except the Ozone hole is a well documented case that effective global action by sane humans can effectively fix some of our environmental problems. Again, predating the current epistemological collapse.

Just because science and government are nearly openly fascistic and dedicated to a strange ideology that is bleeding humanity from the planet, does not mean that every crisis and action is similarly bogus.

The logical fallacy of thinking that one clear example of bullshit means everything is bullshit everywhere; is nihilism. NIHILISM IS THE ULTIMATE BASIS FOR EVERYTHING THE LEFT IS DOING. Just look: half of the issues they are screaming about are almost comically minor. Academy Award rules on the race of key grips in movies? Who gets to use what bathroom? Pronouns?

C'mon, even IF climate change was a hoax, there are hugely important issues they could be worried about, but aren't. Like nuclear war. That's going to fuck up far more women's day than media moguls getting theirs for casting with their penises in the 90's. Instead, all the focus is on bullshit. Because they are comfortable, nothing matters to them. They are spiritually dead, and inflicting it on everyone around them.

So we must admit that some things are important to resist nihilism. And if some subset of reality is indeed not just a conspiracy, then some of the challenges we face must be real; THEY are obscuring very real issues with their frippery in service to nothing but themselves.

So we can look at something like climate change that predates modern Nihiliberalism, and the risks involved, and the fact that, Greta and some soup aside, the climate issue is getting no actual support from the politicians, media and other elites. It is far down the list from LGBTQ activism (dozens dead, thousands sterilized), institutional racism (millions dead if you count the Indians) in terms of coverage and politics, yet poses a far higher threat. It predates by a century all of these other issues. And we can all see some changes in real, human time, which is an enormous amount of energy at work.

Don't ozone holes form because there is no sun at the poles in the winter to split the O2? Also, the demonization of CFCs coincided with the expiration of their patents, if I remember rightly.

Correction: 1983, not 1993.

I distinctly remember being informed that the science was settled: if we didn't stop using hairspray and refrigerators, the Earth would be a burned-out waste-land before 2000AD.

There was comics on that theme, plays, and daily mentions in the state news programmes (Sweden had only state TV back then; private broadcasting was illegal and could land you in prison for ten years.)

As a hypothesis I'd say that it sounds plausible. The wider society is highly combustible given the mixture of anomie, ideology, spite and opportunism. Throw in social media and mass media and it all becomes unstable very fast. There is also a vast amount of money to made from disasters...especially by NGOs and the disaster-capitalism complex.

Trust your instincts, John. I hope that you don't mind me giving you advice, but here I'll go. Prepare to flee. Nothing you own is worth a day in a burns ward. Nothing.

Bushfires are terrible. I live very close to a poorly managed native forest in a city where several suburbs were literally reduced to ashes in a near apocalyptic bush-fire 20 years ago (seems like yesterday!!!).

If you are safe, chill. The best thing about bushfires is the sight of an orange-red moon at night. In a sense it transforms into Barsoom. A sign, perhaps?

I'm not terribly worried for my immediate safety. The closest fire is over 100 km away, last I heard. Still though, the smoke is nuts. Never seen anything like this. The other side of the lake is completely obscured.

The sunrise yesterday was quite glorious, though yesterday evening and this morning it couldn't be seen at all. Suspect it will be the same tonight. Likewise the Moon, though full, was not visible.

That's a crazy story about the bushfire. It's not something we usually have to worry about here. The cold is generally more of a problem ... I'll never forget the ice storm back in the 90s, no power for a week in January. Fun times.

Australia's forests have been shaped by fire...quite a few species of plant need fire for their seeds to become viable. The best thing about bushfires is the aftermath...when rains arrive the green shoots emerge from charred trees that resemble pillars of charcoal.

The indigenous people used to manage their lands by lighting fires...had mixed results: increased savannah where hunting is easier, but altered the ecosystem greatly and helped dry out much of it to a far greater extent than variations in climate would have done. Greenies never admit it but there are actually greater numbers of some rare rainforest species in remote corners of southern NSW than in pre-colonial times precisely because the indigenes there were killed off. It is a super sensitive issue because it defies the narrative of natives living in harmony with the land.

Re Canada, the cold would be a challenge. Must have made you appreciate how tough everyone was before central heating. You can bet that the poor in the old days would really have appreciated spring and summer. Amazing that people are becoming so complacent about affordable energy.

Houses were a lot smaller before central heating, well-insulated, and always had a big fireplace, hearth, or pot-bellied stove. In winter you'd just sit near the fire. It gets so hot you start sweating a bit.

I'd heard that about abos using fire to destroy rain forest in order to make it easier to hunt. These myths about natives living in harmony are just so stories. They had no more compunction about changing the landscape than we do, arguably less ... It was just that their ability to do so was less.

That's how we do it. In November we seal off the upper floor and heat the downstairs with the kitchen stove, a cast iron one from the 1930s, and the furnace in the bedroom.

We get through winter on about 8-10 cubic meters (stacked) of firewood, the house being from 1924 so it's built from selected lumber and well insulated using the old true methods.

Nearby village one family live in a loghouse built in the early 13th century. 50 cm thick logs is one heck of an insulator.

I didn’t know Canada was on fire until we started getting air quality alerts a few weeks ago, which we never do until the heat really hits in late June or July. And I’m in more of the desert in the southwest US. We’ve been unseasonably cool and our fire season hasn’t even remotely started. My money’s on unnatural causation.

Maybe calculating burned area from satellite data (first graph) is also subject to manipulation. Smoke occludes the images, so there must be substantial modeling.

Edit: These calculations are not foolproof, as the 2021 fire total shows. In the 2nd half of the Aug-Sep period, the area actually drops by a small amount, which shouldn't be possible. It's possible that the 2023 area is also eventually adjusted downwards, but by a larger amount. Beware of "Bayesian updating" AKA "Bayesian rug-pulling". https://doi.org/10.1016/j.rse.2019.111295

Wind directions shift, too and fires tend to be highly random. Some years we just have bad luck.

Digging into the data a bit more, I suspect the the graph's 2023 data represents the area enclosed by perimeters as determined by forestry officials. Earlier years come from satellite images taken after the smoke clears. Because the actual burned area (red pixels in Fig. 10 of the above linked paper) adds up to only a fraction of the enclosed area, I would expect a substantial downward revision in the future.

Perimeters are mapped at the below link with total areas listed. It's rarely a good idea to splice data sets that are based on different methodology (area inside perimeter vs. satellite imagery). https://wildfiresituation.nrs.gov.bc.ca/map

Oh, is it the climate catastrophe now?

When I was in high school about a decade ago, it was global warming.

Later on it started morphing into climate change.

I found out that in the '70s it was global cooling.

Considering all those name changes, I think they're just fooling.

In my opinion, at this point, the belief that people are causing the weather to change and irreversibly fucking up the world is more a religious dogma than a reasoned belief - a "good fight" that needs to be fought both because it is good, and that humans need a fight.

They are planning this for Australia in the summer. Same pattern.

Meanwhile it is winter and where I live in South Australia the government forestry is burning off pine plantation waste from harvest instead of the normal mulching protocol. They have done this during a strong northerly weather pattern that is blowing the smoke out to sea where nobody sees it.

The media blackout has not heard locals resistance to this hypercritical 'net zero's plan. Instead, concerned citizens have been ignored or harassed and threatened by police and forestry workers.

You won't need hundreds or a hundred. A dozen at the most. You don't even need fancy stuff like timed devices.

I'm not going to describe how to rig a fire to smolder discreetly for hours, days or even weeks, no need to spread that knowledge, but 6-12 people, two in each car, looking like hikers would be enough.

Consider this: there is a 1:1 overlap between Antifa and Extinction Rebellion. Antifa trains operatives in urban combat, the making of pipe-bombs, how to stalk and assault political opponents when they arevulnerable and how to conduct information warfare to get people virtually unpersoned and disowned even by family.

This I know due to a youth spent among such persons/groups. For every twenty hangers-on and sloganeers, you have 1 true believer willing to go the distance no matter what. Back then, the establishment hadn't co-opted the groups, something they set about to with a vengeance during the various summits around the millennium (the Gothenburg riots in 2001 was a watershed-moment here). By 2005, all "autonomous" groups be they big or small, global or local, from Greenpeace, Amnesty and the Red Cross to "save the city park" were fully infiltrated.

By now, any group starting to get pull or positive press is either co-opted, smeared if that doesn't work, or is astroturf from the get-go.

Trust me when I say that convincing a dozen college graduates in their mid-twenties that setting wildfires to save the planet is a cakewalk.

Hel, Putin used to train german intellectuals in how to become urban guerillas and terrorists during his stint as KGB-liaison to West German terrorist groups, and there's no such thing as an ex-KGB (something to consider for anyone watching the clip with Yuri Bezmenov, by the way), nor has Russia ever stopped trying to cause chaos.

(Not saying it's Russia, just pointing out that their grand strategy against enemies they cannot reach is always "cause chaos and destruction", it's always been too.)

You don't even need cars, bikes will do.

Bikes, no GPS, no trackable phones, no nothing and police and secret services are nowadays so addicted to techno-fetishism they have forgotten the basics.

Let me guess that Canada is experiencing never before heard of levels of vandalism/theft/arson against power facilities and water ditto too?

Just like every single western nation. If you check which nations are being targetted with the nations that in some way participated in WW2, you'll notice that it - the wokeness, the multikulti-agenda, the climate hysteria, et cetera only happens in those nations.

Almost as if someone with a grudge had an agenda. Dangerous line of thinking, no?
