This is a quick unplanned post. I am extremely saddened by the destruction of Lahaina on Maui. Ed Dowd noted that the official death toll is 80 but rumors that it could be as high as 500-1000 people. I have gone through several years of severe “wildfires” in CA/NV which affected the neighborhoods I care about, destroyed several houses of my neighbors, resulted in severe damage to the water company where I volunteer as a treasurer (it took a while but we have restored it), displaced many people, and destroyed acreage of forest.
Locally, nobody was confused about the true causes of these fires - over 90% of them were caused by Pacific Gas and Electric company’s equipment blowing up (delayed maintenance is up to 60 years, but PGE is mandated to buy “green” extremely expensive energy), as well as many cases of arson. Paradise, CA fire was most likely a result of some sort of weaponry being tested and deployed.
Climate change is a hoax but climate terrorism is not.
A reader forwarded this information and links about recent relevant events on Maui. I have readers from Hawaii, and would love to hear what you know and think about these developments. Please post in comments:
The government of Hawaii states goal for rebuild is to make the entire island of Maui the first Smart ISLAND. They want the entire island governed by AI as outlined in the Hawaii Digital government summit of 2023 that they have planned to host next month Monday, September 25, 2023 on Maui.

“Hitachi recently announced that it has begun operations on the demonstration site for the "Japan-U.S. Island Grid Project" (commonly referred to as the "JUMPSmartMaui") on the island of Maui, Hawaii, in collaboration with the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), Mizuho Bank, Ltd. and Cyber Defense Institute, Inc. An opening ceremony was held on Maui to coincide with the launch of site operations.”
Last January of 2023 there was a Smart City Conference in Maui to turn Maui in an entire smart city ISLAND. Pushing everything electric and making 15 minute smart cities
Lastly there was a contract last year that was signed to build high rise condos and businesses in Lahaina. which was a historical town that couldn’t have any new development done to it… but now? It can.
I don’t have photos of banyan, but here is picture of a huge rubber tree from Buenos Aires.
