Let's be honest though if these conditions occur then it would be in the summer when the temperature is high and not in DECEMBER and not so many at one time.

The video I posted earlier shows salt and water can ignite and burn. But it is bombarded with radio waves in order to cause it to separate and become hydrogen and the hydrogen fumes is what is burning. Now how did the poles in Texas burn from salt and water? Where did the radio waves come from to create hydrogen from it? Hell where did the salt come from? They were not near the coast. Now if it was dust and water I see no way for it to burn at all. The poles did not short out from the looks of it. If one did the others would not have in a chain reaction. The power would have been gone. You could say it was salt, water and harp radio waves. Or even some of the chemicals they keep using for cloud seeding in Texas. Or even the chemicals dumped in the Gulf of Mexico like Corexit coming down in rain water. But there is no proof of anything without testing.

wow! Powdered sugar,really?Don't you think that for dust/powdered sugar to combust that an enclosed extremely hot area would be required?OP,I saw the 1st thread on this a few days ago.Glad to see you adding your own twist.To the naysayers,I guess ya'll are right-it must be the SugarPlum Dust Fairy making these 40 plus powerpoles catch afire!!!

Creamer cannon:

Just air and an ignition source is needed to set fire to it.

As for the power pole fires, if it isn't due to the rain and dust, then what causes them?

And if it's deliberate, why?

The explanation just doesn't sit well with me. I can't think of any reason for someone to purposely set these poles on fire and I cannot think of any natural reason but it just doesn't seem possible.

It isn't like central Texas is the only dry area in the country. It isn't the only place that has seen dense fog either. Recent ATS thread about fog My own state has been very dry and we had some crazy fog about a week ago.

If this reason is true, why aren't power poles on fire all over the place. I could understand a handful of poles doing this. But over 50 in the same general area?

Sorry I can't view videos on my phone.Wish I could watch it though,sounds informative.

Power poles contain a lot of chemicals so that they last longer. The tops of these poles get baked for years and probably get above 180 degrees. You can actually start a fire with water. Texas is extremely hot and humid. Given the heat,humidity and chemicals involved along with electricity in very close proximity it does not take much imagination to see how one could catch on fire.

To me the most obvious explanation would be cost cutting on components,
they don't wanna admit it so make some un thought out bogus story up.
I doubt many would really give it much thought,i doubt they'll go back to the
same dealer for them cheap screws again tho

Was there any form of industry within a few miles? Agriculture nearby?
Have you seen the dust raised when machines harvest crops?

As has been mentioned before if this is some sort of 'cover up' you need to also tell us why?
Did some pole installer go around setting the fires so he would get the job of replacing the poles? I think not.

Just because you don't like the explaination doesn't mean there's a conspiracy.
