It is common knowledge that nano particulates are increasing the frequency of wild fires, resulting in forest fires that have been burning hotter and spreading faster than ever before in the history of the USA and other regions of the world. The EPA and other such agencies deny that the use of a metals are the cause, but fire fighters and elite e fighter crews will publicly disagree. What is the cause, and could it be that the aerial spraying known as chemtrails is the culprit, let’s examine this subject closer.
- “The dangerous thing about the chemical reactions in fire is the fact that they are self-perpetuating. The heat of the flame itself keeps the fuel at the ignition temperature, so it continues to burn as long as there is fuel and oxygen around it. The flame heats any surrounding fuel so it releases gases as well. When the flame ignites the gases, the fire spreads.”
Is there such a thing as a fire burning TOO HOT you may ask? Well according to the government website NEWTON DEP , the answer is YES.
Q. I have read that water can actually fuel a fire that is “too hot”. How is this possible, and how hot is “too hot”?
A. This is true, though only certain types of fires get this hot. One type of fuel that can do this is magnesium. Magnesium burns at 3600 F (2000 C) and at close distance is brighter than the Sun! Paper, on the other hand, burns at a measly 454 F (220 C). Since magnesium burns so very hot, it can actually split water into hydrogen and oxygen (2 H2O –> 2 H2 + O2). Then the hydrogen and oxygen undergo combustion due to the excessive heat to form water again. While you might think that this cycle would keep going, it take an incredible amount of energy to split water into hydrogen and oxygen–more than you get back out when you reform the water. All of this heat is lost to the atmosphere and the fire will eventually burn itself out. A magnesium fire is so hot that it can burn a hole right through a car’s engine block (since the engine is made of aluminum/cast iron and melt at a lower temperature than magnesium burns). There are other examples, but this is by far the most common/popular type of metal fire that water will not work with. Another is called thermite, which is a combination of aluminum powder and iron oxide (rust)–this will burn just as hot as magnesium. Lithium, sodium and potassium are all metals that will burn and react with water as well. Potassium is so reactive with water that it has to be stored in oil because it will react with the moisture in the air. This is not true of magnesium or thermite, which have to be ignited with a very hot flame.
If you have taken any type of fire extinguisher safety courses, then you will know that there are 4 classes of extinguishers, A, B, C and D. ABC extinguishers put out most fires with carbon dioxide, while class D extinguishers put out metal fires using dry powder. How do they do this? Table salt! Believe it or not, there is powdered sodium chloride (regular table salt) that comes out of a class D extinguisher and puts out the fire by smothering it! Sodium chloride will put out most types of metal fires, though those fires containing lithium, it is preferred to use copper to extinguish the fire. There are a couple of others including sodium carbonate or graphite, but those have limited uses and drawbacks. “
Aviation and retired USAF Mark McCandlish in his address to the SHASTA COUNTY BOARD:
When materials such as Aluminum Oxide, Barium and Strontium (as a Carbonate) which are all used in explosives or pyrotechnics are combined with Sulfur and Iron Oxide in an explosive chemical reaction, these components create tremendous heat- enough to melt through a steel support girder in a fraction of a second.
Mark McCandlish states “Imagine then, how this affects the conflagration that is a forest fire with these materials present in the environment. I have personally spoken to a number of career CDF personnel who have told me unequivocally that fires over the last ten years have become significantly more difficult and costly to suppress. They burned unusually hot but officials were at a loss to explain “why”…”
MacCandlish goes on to say that “Now as if that weren’t bad enough, with Aluminum being a conductor of electricity, spraying countless microscopic-sized particles into the sky does something else you might not have considered: It dramatically increases the electrostatic potential of the air. That is, its ability to conduct electricity. So those storm clouds that always seem to follow heavy chemtrailing are primed to produce many more lightning strikes. In late July of 2010, (if memory serves) one such storm produced over 8,000 lightning strikes in our region, many of which created fires. When it was all over a month later, California had totaled over $23M in suppression costs. And since the chemtrailing started around 1999-2000, the amount of acreage burned and suppression costs have doubled according to NOAA figures.”
Let’s begin with a short description of Fuels, additives, and why we believe that Chemtrails are responsible for creating hotter forest fires as well as longer burning forest fires, more destruction and doing it all with very little oxygen. If you know anything about the basics of fire, then this is no surprise. Fire needs oxygen because when we burn a material we actually induce a reaction of the material with oxygen. The energy that is released during this by this chemical reaction produces what we call FIRE. Essentially, fire is the side product of the reaction to oxygen.
“Burn” is really a term used to describe a chemical reaction known as “combustion”. A combustion process usually requires oxygen or some oxidizer. Thus, when we say we burn something, what we are really doing is allowing the combination of that substance with oxygen. This process usually means that a lot of energy is produced. The energy is usually released in the form of heat and light. This heat and light we call “fire”. thus, it is not so much that fire require oxygen, but rather that the process of combining oxygen with a substance (in a combustion process) produces heat and light (fire). “(Roberto Gregorius)
Let’s take a quick look at the different elements that contribute to fires.
“Lithium metal plus fluorine gas make an abnormally strong fire.” It’s uses are :
- Thermite is a pyrotechnic composition of metal powder fuel and metal oxide. When ignited by heat, thermite undergoes an exothermic oxidation-reduction reaction. Most varieties are not explosive but can create brief bursts of high temperature in a small area. Its form of action is similar to that of other fuel-oxidizer mixtures, such as black powder.
- As you may have guessed, it is used in fuels, and included in these toxic mixtures are: aluminium, magnesium, titanium, zinc, silicon, and boron.Aluminium is common because of its high boiling point. Oxidizers include boron(III) oxide, silicon(IV) oxide, chromium(III) oxide, manganese(IV) oxide, iron(III) oxide, iron(II,III) oxide, copper(II) oxide, and lead(II,IV) oxide.
The following are 2 declassified documents regarding Jet Fuel. Keep in mind, this document was written up in 1958. This is alarming to say the least.
- Thermate-TH3 (in military use)
The composition by weight of Thermate-TH3 (in military use) is 68.7% thermite, 29.0% barium nitrate, 2.0% sulfur and 0.3% binder (such as PBAN). As both thermite and thermate are notoriously difficult to ignite, initiating the reaction normally requires supervision and sometimes persistent effort.Because thermate burns at higher temperatures than ordinary thermite it has useful military applications in cutting through tank armor or other hardened military vehicles or bunkers. As with thermite, thermate’s ability to burn without an external supply of oxygen renders it useful for underwater incendiary devices.
- Lithium fluoride is an inorganic compound with the formula LiF
Uses: Nuclear reactors, Radiation detectors, Optics, Backplane technologies for computer screens and TV’s, and you guessed it, jet fuels.
Fuel/Air Explosive (FAE)
|U.S. Fuel-Air Explosives|
Fuel-Air Explosives [FAE] disperse an aerosol cloud of fuel which is ignited by an embedded detonator to produce an explosion. The rapidly expanding wave front due to overpressure flattens all objects within close proximity of the epicenter of the aerosol fuel cloud, and produces debilitating damage well beyond the flattened area. The main destructive force of FAE is high overpressure, useful against soft targets such as minefields, armored vehicles, aircraft parked in the open, and bunkers.
Fuel/air explosive represent the military application of the vapor cloud explosions and dust explosions accidents that have long bedeviled a variety of industries.
- Accidental vapor cloud explosion hazards are of great concern to the refining and chemical processing industry, and a number of catastrophic explosion accidents have had significant consequences in terms of injury, property damage, business interruption, loss of goodwill, and environmental impact.

Recent History of some of the largest US Fires:
Murphy Complex Fire 2007
Spreading through the states of Idaho and Nevada, the Murphy Complex Fire burned an estimated 653,000 acres of land in 2007. The same area was subject to another fire, which spread into Mexico, in June 2011.
Summer 2008 California Wildfires
Burning land in Northern and Central California, the Summer 2008 California Wildfires included over 2,780 individual fires that occurred between May 22 and August 29, 2008. Killing 23 people and destroying over 1.15 million acres of land, the fires were believed to be caused by a combination of lightning and heat.
ARIZONA: Wallow Fire 2011
Burning from May 29, 2011, to July 8, 2011, the Wallow Fire was named after the Bear Wallow Wilderness, where the blaze in Arizona and New Mexico started. Over 538,000 acres of land, 72 buildings and 16 people perished as a result of the fire, which was believed to have been started by an abandoned campfire.

June 11th (Saturday) – Oliver’s “Old Firehall”
BAND: My Kind of Karma (http://mykindofkarma.ca/)
FEATURES: Twisted Hills Craft Cider & Dubh Glas Distillery
ARTIST: Leza MacDonald
It’s a very exciting year for us at the Firehall Brewery, with expansions in capacity, distribution, and the opening of our new Beer Shop & Social. And just to add to the excitement, we are ecstatic to announce the launch of another Back Alley Concert Series for the upcoming Summer of 2016. The “Old Firehall” experience on Main Street in Oliver gets a bit louder and prouder for each of these community events, boasting grassroots music, local arts, partnerships with wineries, cidery, & distillery, and of course… BEER!
Tickets are $15 + tax, pre-sold at Pappa’s Firehall Bistro (www.pappasfirehallbistro.com – 250-498-4867) and available at the gate.
This is a break-even event made possible through the energy of our gracious volunteers (if you’d like to volunteer, please contact us at 778-439-2337 or email@example.com). Sadly, our archaic liquor laws are still prohibition-era, so minors are not allowed to join the fun. Food won’t be served at the show, but we encourage you to bring in a picnic dinner (baskets and bags will be politely searched, just to keep out glass and bad beer) or order take-out from Pappa’s Firehall Bistro on the building’s main floor. If you need somewhere to sleep it off for the night, Centennial RV Park and Campground (http://centennialrvpark.com/ – 250-498-6800) is just down Fairview Road, and there are plenty of motels and B&B’s around the region (see: www.winecapitalofcanada.com).
If you haven’t been, let’s paint you the picture. First, we brew beer with courageous flavour and alarming drinkability. Then, we narrow down the mountains of available talent until we’ve got the perfect musical groups booked. Next, we call up some friends in the wine/cider/spirits world to see who’s available to come pour their craft. And finally, we search out some local artists who’d be into dressing up our walls with their creations for the evening. We spend the whole Saturday sprucing up the back alley area with tents, stage & sound, vibrant shade sails, and the cleanest porta-potties you’ve ever laid a cheek on. We open the gates at 6pm, just in time to tap a one-of-a-kind cask of beer (single-event recipe brewed the old-fashioned way), to pour alongside our regular beer roster. Music kicks off at 7pm, and echoes up and down the back alley until 9pm. Then we wander upstairs to the Pappa’s Firehall Bistro for some after-party drinks and 2-for-1 appies, while us volunteers clean up the show as quick as possible to join the fun upstairs.
This year will be a bit different because we’ll have the new Beer Shop & Social open throughout the show, giving everyone a chance to sneak a peak at the result of our successful crowdfunding campaign earlier this year. We’re stoked to have you join the fun and savour the flavour!

Trustees of School District 53 had already decided to close Osoyoos Secondary School (OSS) when they received an offer from the Town of Osoyoos of more than $1 million over three years to keep the school open.
School board chair Marieze Tarr acknowledged last Wednesday during another tense meeting between trustees and Osoyoos residents trying one last time to keep OSS open that this was the reason the school district didn’t discuss the offer with the town before rejecting it.
The admission came shortly after trustees voted 4-3 to approve third reading of a bylaw that will close OSS as of June 30.
The town announced Monday is would be going to court to fight the school board’s decision, calling into question the process followed by the school district.
“The problem is we received the letter of financial promise last week, which was after the decision was already made to close the school.” Tarr said, when asked by a member of the audience why there was no discussion with the town of its offer.
“Now we’re being honest,” interjected Osoyoos councillor Mike Campol, as others, stunned by Tarr’s response, called out that the school board had planned to close OSS all along and the “consultation” process was a waste of time.
Tarr repeatedly banged her gavel at these interjections and announced she was adjourning the meeting.
Members of Osoyoos council were present at the meeting attended by more than 120 people in the hot and stuffy annex of the school district offices in Oliver.
Before the vote, they pleaded with the board to listen to the Osoyoos community, reverse the decision made April 6 when the bylaw received two readings, and instead grant a year’s delay to find a solution.
Coun. C.J. Rhodes spoke before the board voted, telling them he was going to forego the speaking notes he usually uses.
“Tonight I’m going to talk to you from my heart,” he said, as he spoke of how the Osoyoos community came together with as many as 20 to 25 per cent of the town showing up at public meetings.
“I beg you, I implore you to change your mind,” he said. “You are empowered to change your mind tonight and make the decision that is right, to not go down in history as making that pinnacle of bad decisions.”
Mayor Sue McKortoff told the board that the town’s offer of more than $1 million would have addressed the school district’s budget problem. She pointed out that, contrary to the belief of trustees, it was not contingent on a referendum if the town delayed other projects and used funding that was already allocated in the budget.
“We are asking for a one-year delay on your decision allowing more time to consider district plans,” she said. “Residents need more time to make decisions about the future of their children’s education. Our community is engaged and prepared to work with you for the betterment of all.”
She noted that projected net savings to the district by closing OSS would be $387,300 based on SD 53’s projection of increased busing costs at $67,400.
“We are prepared to refute that figure as our transportation experts believe that the (busing) figure could easily be double that amount,” McKortoff said. “The savings to close OSS could possibly be $275,000, which is a small hurdle to overcome as compared to the social and economic damage that closing the school will cause to our community.”
If the board voted to close OSS, McKortoff warned the town would have no other option “but to initiate what we feel is the worst option” – going to court.
“Legal proceedings are in draft form right now,” she said, holding up a still-unsigned affidavit from an Osoyoos parent. “We are prepared to stop or start this process tonight.”
The town is considering seeking an injunction, which would temporarily halt the closure, and possibly a judicial review of the process used by the school district to close OSS or other legal action.
Despite the pleas from parents, PAC (Parent Advisory Council) representatives, council members, a retired superintendent of schools from West Vancouver, and NDP Education Critic Rob Fleming, the vote was a repeat of the ones on April 6.
The two Oliver trustees – Rob Zandee and Rachel Allenbrand – were joined by Debbie Marten of Cawston-Keremeos and Sam Hancheroff of Okanagan Falls in voting to close the school.
Those voting against were the two Osoyoos trustees, June Harrington and Tarr, as well as Cawston-Keremeos trustee Myrna Coates.
Speeches by the trustees covered the same points as the April 6 meeting. They argued the board faced funding pressures with declining enrolment and downloaded cost pressures from the province, that students will be better off in a larger school with more course choices and larger class sizes.
Several trustees also took exception to the criticism trustees have faced on social media, through letters and verbal comments and in the media.
Throughout their speeches (see video on OsoyoosTimes.com), trustees faced interjections and jeers from the audience, often from Campol.
When Zandee talked about what trustees have faced, Campol interjected: “We get it Rob, you’re the victim.”
An angry Zandee responded: “This is exactly what I’m talking about.”
After the meeting, Campol expressed surprise that the board never discussed the fact that they didn’t need to close the school because the town was offering to fund it.
He thinks this is because the idea conflicted with what the board wanted the end result to be – the closure of OSS.
“If a suggestion or an idea doesn’t fit the narrative of closing the school, it’s not worth debating (by the board),” he said.
The community and council came up with good cost-saving ideas, he said, but time was an obstacle to implementing them.
“We literally bought the time to explore those options over a year, two years, three years. So there was no reason to close the school except that they wanted it to be closed. It had nothing to do with budget and they proved that tonight.”
Campol said the process was disingenuous and it is now up to the courts to decide.
Coun. Rhodes said he was disappointed the town’s financial offer wasn’t properly discussed, even though a letter from Tarr stating reasons for the rejection appeared to have been thought out.
“It’s important for everyone to know that there was no interaction with council of any kind,” Rhodes said after the meeting. “There was not a telephone call, there was not an attempt of any kind to interact regarding that subject in any way, shape or form.”
Coun. Carol Youngberg pointed out that a discussion of the board’s budget the night before, in which members of the community participated, identified $901,000 in possible savings.
She thinks the decision to close OSS was made prior to the Jan. 13 meeting when the board voted to begin “public consultations.”
Brenda Dorosz, chair of the Save Our Schools (SOS) committee, was subdued and conciliatory in her comments to the board before the vote.
“I didn’t have anything else to say,” she explained after the meeting. “I’ve said enough in the last three months and I felt they weren’t going to listen to us, so I just stood up and didn’t want to get angry. Our kids matter and education should be first. It was a done deal and it’s just not fair to our kids.”
Now, she said, efforts will move full-speed ahead to establish an independent school in Osoyoos.
Harrington, the only trustee to have consistently opposed closure of OSS, said she was devastated by the board’s decision.
“I just so wanted for kids to be able to go to school in their own community,” she said. “I just wish I could have convinced the others, but somehow minds are made up.”
Asked how it’s been for her personally to be outnumbered on the board, she replied: “Very tough. I’ve had a lot of sleepless nights.”
Only days after closing three schools due to a projected budget shortfall, trustees with Okanagan School District 67 spent $13,564 to attend a B.C. School Trustees Association’s conference in Vancouver.
Six trustees along with superintendent Wendy Hyer and secretary-treasurer Bonnie Roller Routley attended the annual general meeting April 14-17 at the Hyatt Regency hotel in downtown Vancouver, according to information provided by the district upon request.
This came on the heels of the board’s decision April 11 to close West Bench Elementary, Trout Creek Elementary and McNicoll Park Middle School in Penticton.
Of the six trustees in attendance (Bruce Johnson was absent due to health issues), Summerland trustees Julie Planiden and board chair Linda Van Alphen claimed the most in expenses — $1,985 and $1,964, respectively, which included an additional night in a hotel.
Planiden’s expenses included $808 for hotels, $314 for travel and $242 for miscellaneous, while Van Alphen spent $808 on hotels, $318 on travel and $217 on miscellaneous.
Penticton trustee Shelley Clarke’s expense claim includes $570 for travel.
Van Alphen defended her added expense, noting she, Planiden and Ginny Manning (who had one night paid for by BCSTA because of serving on a standing committee) arrived one day earlier due to meetings on the Thursday morning.
“At times, some trustees have expense accounts that are significantly higher than others,” Van Alphen said. “I believe this would be dependent on what their specific assignments might be at the provincial level and the meeting that they have a responsibility to attend.”
It was the second of two recent BCSTA conferences for school trustees, the earlier coming in November when SD67 spent $12,937 for what was dubbed the BCSTA Academy.
Over six months, the board spent a total of $26,501 on the two conferences.
Retired teacher David Perry, a former mayor and one-term trustee with SD67, was critical of the board’s spending in a letter to the editor published April 16, suggesting only the chair needs to attend.
“Such irrelevant workshops as ‘Public Education and the Social License’ and ‘Damned Nations: Greed Guns and Armies’ are on the agenda. Nothing on ‘School Closures,’ ‘Government Underfunding,’ ‘Supporting parents of closed schools,’ etc., which are the real issues trustees have left at home,” Perry wrote.
Figures for Okanagan Similkameen School District 53 are presently unavailable but The Herald has requested them as well.
Like their counterparts to the north, SD53 closed Osoyoos Secondary School before heading to Vancouver. SD53 took six trustees plus one staff member to the convention.
“It’s unfortunate that it happened at a time when we were closing a school,” said SD53 vice-chair Sam Hancheroff. “That’s part of our job. We go to conferences to discuss with other school districts what they’re doing. We had the Education Minister there and everyone was asking him the same question everyone else was — we need more money.”
SD53 chair Marieze Tarr defended the spending, noting, “The money that is provided for (conventions) comes out of the board’s governance so it’s out of a different pot of money and that’s budgeted for every year.”
The following is a list of expenses for both conferences for Okanagan Skaha School District 67 trustees.

(OSOYOOS) School District 53 voted Thursday night to shut down the only high school in Osoyoos despite offer from the city of Osoyoos with 1 million dollar grant. Please listen in full sadly we suffered technical difficulty and could not record the Q&A because that’s where it became transparent that the decision was made way prior to hearings. Audio was recorded to back the claim up and there is more to come. Osoyoos has shown they are far from done and have shown what a community can do when it is united
