Fort McMurray fire interactive map: NASA data shows fire invading town

[Tens of] Thousands Flee as Canada Can’t Stop Enormous Wildfire from Spreading

“The fire is currently burning between 800 C and 1,000 C [ 1472º F to 1831º F !], making it so hot that officials believe only rain will be able to stop it.”

Saudi connection says Dr. Leuren Moret
Saudi’s keeping oil prices at $30/barrel for 4 years has bankrupted tar sands and shale oil and gas in the US/Canada. Here we see City of London throwing in the towel on 80,000 people living in this tar sands town in Alberta.
Saudi Arabia has also nearly bankrupted itself, and the Saudi Royal Family is about to lose their throne and “oil plantation”.”

This is REALLY a GREAT posting Mary. Thank you so much for putting in the visuals etc. with my comment. NO RAIN IN THE LATE SPRING IN NORTHERN CANADA? Abra cadabra… the HAARP magic working before our very eyes, carrying out the dictates and vested interests of the oligarchs once again!

yeah, I liked that last map-graphic from the The Weather Network showing the massive wave of heat parked over Alberta. Like it’s just a normal map.
Plus, from tv news it appears very, very hot up that way. I visited the Great Lakes growing up and don’t ever recall hot weather in April. It’s only warm enough to swim (lake temps) in late summer. It should be even colder that far north.

Great Lakes don’t get the Chinook foehn winds off the Rockies like Alberta. Even Montreal has had sudden warming that melts snow in Feb…maybe from Laurentide Mts. Great Lakes totally different and even south of lake different from north. Foehn can increase temp by a couple of degrees per minute and gale force winds.

“With severe winters except during periods of warming chinook winds, warm summers and only three months whose average temperature is higher than 10 °C (50 °F), Fort McMurray has a borderline subarctic climate (Köppen climate classification Dfc), just below a humid continental climate.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_McMurray
“Chinooks are most prevalent over southern Alberta in Canada, especially in a belt from Pincher Creek and Crowsnest Pass through Lethbridge, which get 30 to 35 Chinook days per year on average. Chinooks… are not as common north of Red Deer, but they can and do occur annually as far north as High Level in northwestern Alberta… In southwestern Alberta, Chinook winds can gust in excess of hurricane force 120 km/h (75 mph). On November 19, 1962, an especially powerful Chinook in Lethbridge gusted to 171 km/h (106 mph).
In Pincher Creek, the temperature rose by 41 °C (106 °F), from −19 to 22 °C (−2 to 72 °F), in one hour in 1962.[4] Trains have been known to be derailed by Chinook winds. During the winter, driving can be treacherous, as the wind blows snow across roadways, sometimes causing roads to vanish and snowdrifts to pile up higher than a metre. Empty semitrailer trucks driving along Highway 3 and other routes in southern Alberta have been blown over by the high gusts of wind caused by Chinooks.
Alberta also gets many Chinooks – the Bow Valley in the Canadian Rockieswest of the city acts as a natural wind tunnel, funneling the chinook winds.
On 27 February 1992, Claresholm, Alberta a small city just east of Calgary; recorded a temperature of 24 °C (75 °F)[5] again the next day 21 °C (70 °F) was recorded.[5] These are some Canada’s highest February temperatures.

How could anyone allow uncontrolled exploitation of tar sands without expecting the whole place going up in smoke with a mere spark!

Makes the Flint water pollution look pretty puny by comparison.

There is no Ft. McMurray left to restore now.

I think the ground is on fire …. (fires over 1400 degrees F) like a coal seem fire.
Looks like it was a predictable outcome.
See also comment/video of start of the fire to the west and all the spray trails left by planes ….

I think Canada/Queen happy to dump the tar sands operation as oil price is low and train insurance is high.

Were the chemtrails HAARP hoping to head off the fires with unexpected rain?

If so, it was too little, too late.

I think they were ‘stimulating’ the tar in the ground to ignite so they could dump the money pit region because of low oil prices. But who knows.
If they fighting the fires in advance wouldn’t they tout that in the press? Take along reporters?? Photographers?

Here’s why Martin Mars water bomber isn’t in Fort McMurray
http://www.theweathernetwork.com/news/articles/heres-why-martin-mars-water-bomber-isnt-in-fort-mcmurray/67464/

“Based on the fact no government has any interest whatsoever in the aircraft fighting fire, we have decided to take the Mars to the Oshkosh Air Show in late July in hopes of finding another business or home for it, keeping it somewhat operational.”
