Wildfires around the world: Increasing in frequency and intensity?

Many fires broke out within Sicily

Apparently the temperatures reached 45°C / 113°F in Syracusa, a town located at the east coast of Sicily south of Catania. The latter reported 42°C /107.6°F. In the southern Catania region 700 people (or houses) were evacuated, and the airport was closed, my husband tells me through whatever media he is looking (Catania today, local news - he said). Other places in Sicily reported fires, like the Palermo area, and well in the center of Sicily. Usually everything is bone dry this time of the year...

Mountain fires were also reported from mainland Italy (southern most tip) in the Reggio Calabria area.

On (visual light) satellite images I could spot some smoke yesterday evening, but looks pale in comparison to the vast Turkish fires, whose smoke is affecting the entire Easter Mediterranean Sea, going into Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Israel.

Unfortunately NorCal is being hit really hard atm. There are numerous fires burning in our county, many 0% contained. Towns a few miles away are being evacuated.

It would take extraordinary circumstances to bring them to our doorsteps but the smoke is certainly becoming a potential health threat.

We were wondering if this is truly a "natural" event, caused by "lightning" or part of the bigger plan. Agenda 2030 and all... Lots of folks in these parts excersise their Second Amemndment rights. And generally don't buy into the current scheme.

Fwiw, we did have a lightning storm roll through but is that creatable? Maybe it is just another signs-of-the-times?

Even near Sacramento there was a huge fire (3rd photo). From yesterday. The others from today. (First is from McFarland Fire, noon, second from our back porch, Monument Fire, 6pm).

A sign of the times, IMO. Do you remember what day the lighting storm rolled through where you live in Northern California? I'm in Oregon and we had a lightning storm roll through here last Sunday evening (I remember earlier in the day before the storm seeing thunderheads in the distance). It eventually brought rain where I live. Next day Monday was hazier than usual and off and on I'd see planes and helicopters with firefighting buckets fly by. Checked the news and sure enough the thunderstorm from the previous evening ignited a lot of new fires. Noticed just now there's an article on the topic on SOTT:

Hi Cleo. The Lightning rolled through, heading north into Oregon, on Thursday the 29th I believe. Some of the fires were not discovered until the 30th. Looks like the Cascades east of Roseburg has a few that started at about the same time.


Cope, I think you are correct. Looks like a back-fire/counter-fire to me.

Russia is among the nations facing increasingly harsh natural disasters, such as the massive wildfires in the eastern Siberian region of Yakutia. An RT crew joined a group of firefighters doing their best to contain the blazes.

Yakutia is a sparsely populated part of Russia, prone to experiencing long periods of dry weather in summertime. This creates the conditions for massive and difficult-to-control wildfires. This year the threat emerged in mid-spring and, over the months, became quite devastating.

Despite all efforts to contain and douse the flames, some 37,000 square kilometers are affected at the moment. Several villages had to be evacuated before being obliterated. Many people living in parts of Yakutia and neighboring regions have also suffered from smoke inhalation and other hazards affecting their communities.

RT's Dmitry Pauk teamed up with a crew of firefighters in Yakutia, who said their resources have been stretched thin by the sheer size of the disaster. The larger fires, which pose a greater threat, get the priority allocations of manpower and equipment. Brigades dealing with smaller ones have to make the best of what they have.

The crew that welcomed the RT crew is really low-tech, walking on foot in search of smoke and using shovels and manual backpack pumps where necessary. This intensive effort is usually enough to tackle flames on the ground. But there is always the danger of fire spreading across treetops, where it is fanned by the wind, becoming a much bigger hazard.

The destruction from the wildfires can be felt far from Yakutia. This week officials in Yekaterinburg reported that smoke from the Eastern Siberian region had traveled all the way to the major city in the Urals, a 3,000-kilometer journey westward, with the winds.

The Russian emergencies ministry said on Monday it had sent more people and hardware to Yakutia. There are now 4,070 people and 585 pieces of heavy firefighting equipment deployed on the ground there. The military is lending a helping hand, too, sending trucks, military engineering vehicles and personnel to assist the civilian authorities.

Wildfires in Russia and other nations are becoming a bigger challenge, as climate change tends to make some natural disasters more serious with each passing year. California recorded the biggest single wildfire in the state's history last week. Greece and Turkey are each currently waging difficult battles against fires.

Algerian officials launch probe to find arsonists behind 50 ‘horror’ fires as firefighters battle blazes
Speaking on Tuesday, Interior Minister Kamel Beldjoud declared that the government would launch an inquiry to find the “criminal hands” who are “behind the simultaneous outbreak of about 50 fires across several localities of the province.”
On a couple occasions I had gut feelings that a good number of similar USA forest fires were started by diligent Deep State agents. Hollywood even gives a clue in the movie Those Who Wish Me Dead, where two MIC-assassins start a forest fire to drive their human targets into a trap.
Problem - Reaction - Solution:
You can't have a nice water crisis without deliberately depleting water reservoirs, then selling same water back to The Sheeple, but now at a high price! Same with GMO seeds destroying farmers.
Those mentioned '3x Bad Day' surprising global changes - the Deep State couldn't foresee - cannot come fast enough!

Here you can see the extent of the fires raging across our earth.
The screenshot could be misleading, because all the red dots become very tiny eareas when zoomed in, I tried it for Germany. I also tried unsuccessfully to find information about current wildfires in Germany, I don't know if there are any at the moment, and most of the red spots I zoomed in are located at densely populated or industrial areas, so I'm sceptical to what extend this map actually shows wildfires at all.

a story about the power of prayer ??


"Miracle in Greece! St. David’s Monastery in Evia, untouched by flames larger than 40 meters. The monks remained to put out the fire with the firefighters.

The monastery of St. David on Evia is a place

of numerous healings and spiritual refuge for many people seeking healing and help. This monastery remained intact, after the fire that broke out in the pine forest that surrounds the place, turned everything it encountered into ashes into ashes.

Firefighters say that when the fire reached a meter from the Monastery buildings, it stopped abruptly, “like an all-powerful hand, and returned, like a wounded animal, back to the forest.”

I believe the satellite(s) are mapping heat signatures. (of any source)

When you click on various red dots, sometimes there is a number indicating the probability of such signature. So yes, I am sure there are a lot of wrong heat signatures, which are not forest fires. I am sure there are plenty of other heat sources which are not associated with forest fires.

A sure example are volcanic heat signatures: Etna, Stromboli and Iceland show heat signatures at the center of their activity, and/or at the top of the mountains. So, no forest fires there.
