What is HAARP? The acronym HAARP is short for High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program. According to the official HAARP website, “HAARP is a scientific endeavor aimed at studying the properties and behavior of the ionosphere, with particular emphasis on being able to understand and use it to enhance communications and surveillance systems for both civilian and defense purposes.
However, there are differing points of view as to the real purpose of HAARP. Some respected researchers say that secret electromagnetic warfare capabilities of HAARP are designed to support the US Military “stated goal” of achieving full-spectrum dominance by the year 2020. Others allege HAARP can and has been used for weather modification, to cause earthquakes and tsunamis, disrupt communication systems, and other unsavory, selective scores. The US Patent Office holds the patent provided by the key developer of HAARP and other documentary evidence to support these claims.
Major aspects of the program are kept “top secret” for alleged “national security” reasons. And yet, there is no doubt in the minds of many that HAARP and electromagnetic weapons capable of being used in warfare do, in fact, exist. However, this intrusion into the ionosphere, the delicate upper layer of our atmosphere that ranges from about 30-600 miles above the Earth’s surface, is not only unconscionable, but frightening.
The HAARP website acknowledges that experiments using electromagnetic frequencies to fire pulsed, directed energy beams to “temporarily excite a limited area of the ionosphere” are conducted. According to some scientists, purposely disturbing this sensitive layer of our atmosphere could have major and disastrous consequences. Concerned HAARP researchers have presented evidence that suggests these disturbances can be used to trigger earthquakes and affect hurricanes.
Dr. Bernard Eastlund is the scientist whose name is most associated with the creation and development of HAARP. His website provides reliable information concerning his involvement with the project. A patent entitled “Method and apparatus for altering a region in the earth’s atmosphere, ionosphere, and/or magnetosphere” was issued to Dr. Eastlund. In this patent, Dr. Eastlund makes a number of fascinating statements which clearly contradict the claim that HAARP is only being used for research and not for military purposes or other purposes such as weather modification.
Some of Dr. Eastlunds statements in the patent include:
· “The temperature of the ionosphere has been raised by hundreds of degrees in these experiments;
· A means and method is provided to cause interference with or even total disruption of communications over a very large portion of the earth;
· It is possible to take advantage of one or more such beams to carry out a communications network even though the rest of the world’s communications are disrupted;
· This invention can be used to an advantage for positive communication and eavesdropping purposes;
· Exceedingly large amounts of power can be very efficiently produced and transmitted”;
· This invention has a phenomenal variety of potential future developments. “Weather modification is possible by, for example, altering upper atmosphere wind patterns or altering solar absorption patterns by constructing one or more plumes of atmospheric particles which will act as a lens or focusing device.” Therefore, ozone, nitrogen, etc. concentrations in the atmosphere could be artificially increased.
· Electromagnetic pulse defenses are also possible. “The earth’s magnetic field could be decreased or disrupted at appropriate altitudes to modify or eliminate the magnetic field.”
Two key documentaries; one by Canada’s public broadcasting network, CBC, and the other by the History Channel, reveal the inner workings of HAARP. The very well-researched CBC documentary includes this key quote:
“It isn’t just conspiracy theorists who are concerned about HAARP. In January of 1999, the European Union called the project of global concern and passed a resolution calling for more information on its health and environmental risks. Despite those concerns, officials at HAARP insist the project is nothing more sinister than a radio science research facility.”
Below are two quotes from the History Channel documentary:
“Electromagnetic weapons…pack an invisible wallop hundreds of times more powerful than the electrical current in a lightning bolt. One can blast enemy missiles out of the sky, another could be used to bind soldiers on the battlefield, still another to control an unruly crowd by burning the surface of their skin. If detonated over a large city, an electromagnetic weapon could destroy all electronics in seconds. They all use directed energy to create a powerful electromagnetic pulse.”
“Directed energy is such a powerful technology it could be used to heat the ionosphere to turn weather into a weapon of war. Imagine using a flood to destroy a city or tornados to decimate an approaching army in the desert. The military has spent a huge amount of time on weather modification as a concept for battle environments. If an electromagnetic pulse went off over a city, basically all the electronic things in your home would wink and go out, and they would be permanently destroyed.”
For those “doubting Thomas’s” among you, a quote from an article in the New Zealand Herald might convince you something is strange about this program.
“Top-secret wartime experiments were conducted off the coast of Auckland to perfect a tidal wave bomb, declassified files reveal. United States Defence Chiefs said that if the project had been completed before the end of the war, it could have played a role as effective as that of the atom bomb. Details of the tsunami bomb, known as Project Seal, are contained in 53-year old documents released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.”
If the military secretly developed a weapon which would cause a tsunami over a half century ago, what kind of advanced deadly weapons might be available now? Is it any stretch of the imagination then to conclude the military has the capability not only to cause a tsunami, but also to affect man-made disasters such as earthquakes and hurricanes?
Could the earthquake in Haiti, the Indonesian tsunami, and hurricane Katrina be HAARP experiments gone awry? Of course, we COULD consider these natural disasters. However, with the evil capability of HAARP as an electromagnetic weapon of mass destruction, it is highly unlikely.
