With satellite photos, Landwater makes another valuable contribution to the investigation into the Great Knysna Fire.
“An image speaks more than words. This was the situation at 10:10am on the 7th of June 2017. Let that TIME sink in with the imagery…
Then consider the immense and frankly immeasurable cost of the tragedy (most of all, the precious lives lost) and begin to hold the Knysna Municipality ACCOUNTABLE for their RECKLESS and PERSISTENT promotion of a FACTUALLY FAULTY and scientifically unproven narrative in the press.
They haven’t even released their report yet (24 days overdue) but they WILL continue to stand on their already disproved hypothesis and create a them-and-us situation in the process.
1. KRUISFONTEIN ORIGIN: The fire already started on Plett’s side – caused by a 4-5km major airborn-embered spotting fire coming from the MTO Plantations at Kruisfontein. Compare the natural image (with the smoke) against the “x-ray”-image showing the actual fire within the smoke. This is what an airborn fire looks like. (y) Satellites are wonderful things yes, they can see many things we can’t.
2. ELANDSKRAAL ORIGIN: Not much to say except that the Municipality’s V-site (the V-point is marked by the yellow marker) is clearly burning / “heat-active” at 10:10am in the morning and hasn’t burnt clean at all. Roughly 8.5 hours past their guessed start-time.
Change the narrative and demand transparency and accountability.”
This post was originally found on the anonymously run Landwater Facebook page which has previously provided valuable information and food for thought. It’s because of their track record that i repost it. The Knysna Municipality is encouraged to break their silence with communication that cannot be described as propaganda. Be honest, be meaningful.
PS: In the comment section, Landwater made the following statement:
“Knysna-Plett Herald, George Herald, Knysna Fires 7th June, Love Knysna, HeraldLIVE – Port Elizabeth, Die Burger, Times LIVE, RapportWeb probably time to start asking some serious questions, not only to the Knysna Municipality but also to the Democratic Alliance (DA – Knysna).
The background is above and briefly covered in the descriptions within the associated images. Additional analysis are in the Notes and Photos and expansion of these sections are in the pipeline.
The Knysna Municipality continue to maintain and assert their narrative in the press (see The Herald article* below), while seemingly showing little regard to the many valid concerns of and observations shared from victims in this tragedy. They also seem disinterested to value the only report that the public has seen to date (from Dr. Klatzow), as their own report is still pending (after excuses of spell checking following their presentation).
This CANNOT continue when there is more than adequate proof (here) to show that their V-site hypothesis cannot stand scientific testing, despite their significant efforts to create such an impression.”
