Purposeful Anthropogenic Climate Alteration: RF Ionospheric Heater Arrogance (e.g. HAARP)
"And now 'tis man who dares assault the sky..."
This is a difficult Article to write.
Endless tsunamis of disinformation, denial, and outright lying surrounding the purposes of ionospheric heaters make any attempt to write about the topic look like a tinfoil hat conspiracy novel. The sad truth? It should be a conspiracy novel. Then, it would be safer for mankind on this planet; this, because it would be fiction rather than fact.
There was a time when I thought no act of scientific recklessness and arrogance could top MIT Lincoln Lab's 1963 "Project West Ford" space needles ionospheric garbage dump, but HAARP and its bretheren have finally done it. This (HAARP and the like) is the epitome of arrogance and irresponsibility with the Earth's atmosphere. Project West Ford brought almost universal condemnation from the worldwide scientific community (including the Royal Astronomical Society) and United Nations, yet the U.S. Government and MIT were undeterred. That was 1963. Now on to the present.
"From annihilation to defence
With the breakup of the Soviet Union, submarine communications no longer seemed as crucial, and HAARP needed a new raison d'être. Supporters proposed new tactics, such as studying ELF waves' ability to map out underground bunkers like those found in North Korea, a goal that quickly drew scepticism.
After the terrorist attacks of 9/11, however, the military found a new use for HAARP. In 2002, a panel headed by Anthony Tether, the director of DARPA, recommended that the facility be used to study ways to counter the effects of a high-altitude nuclear detonation, which would release energetic electrons that could cripple low-Earth satellites.
Electrons are produced naturally in this region when the solar wind, a stream of energetic particles flowing from the Sun, slams into the magnetic envelope that protects Earth. The planet has its own self-cleaning mechanism to rid itself of the particles: it eventually dumps them lower into the atmosphere through natural auroras and lightning. Scientists are now looking at whether they can accelerate this process by creating 'whistler' waves, which would kick the electrons into low enough altitudes — around 100 kilometres — where they would rain out naturally.
No one knows for sure whether it will work. 'It is what we call a data-starved area — theory is ahead of actual observations,' says Paul Kossey, HAARP's programme manager at the Air Force Research Laboratory at Hanscom Air Force Base, Massachusetts [now closed and relocated to Ohio]. Several experiments are being done to look at this possibility. Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, for example, is involved in the One Hop Experiment, which uses HAARP to inject very-low-frequency waves into the magnetosphere to create whistlers. The investigators use a buoy and ships in the South Pacific, where the waves fall back to Earth, to measure the presence of whistler waves."
Well, seems harmless enough. Build a giant radio beam to aggravate the electrons of the ionosphere, artificially heating the atmosphere in a manner simulating bombardment of the Earth by solar flares; this project, in the puyrsuit of possibly learning how to counter the effects of a nuclear holocaust in space. Peachy keen. But, I'm pretty sure that's not what Stanford is saying it's doing with it (inducing directionality in the returning signal - aiming it).
Now, the not-so-official version...
"What is HAARP?
The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) is a 3.6 million watt antenna array operated by the US military in Gakona, Alaska. Since the Limited Test Ban Treaty over 50 years ago, extremely high-powered radars have been heating rocket exhaust plumes and barium clouds to measure and alter our space environment.
Space-Weather Modification technology has advanced to the point where our own environment is now being used as a weapon, and the stakes could not be any higher. If you thought the cold-war was bad, you ain’t seen nothing yet. This hidden history is now exposed in the following series of articles, a Space-Weather Modification Timeline, and a map of currently operational Ionospheric Heaters.
What is an Ionospheric Heater?
definition: “Powerful HF transmitter (2.8 to 10 MHz) that induces controlled temporary modification to the electron temperature at desired altitude”.
What does that mean?
Heater antenna arrays pump electricity from the ground into space. This artificial electrical alteration of our ionosphere creates many different effects. Scientists doing these experiments do so without any oversight. These experiments are highly controversial and likely are affecting more than just out atmosphere, they may be affecting your mood.
HAARP is currently the most powerful Ionospheric Heater in the world.
- 1987 – Stanford Star Lab gave a proposal for the future of ionospheric modification.
- 1990 – ARCO and APTI proposed an Artificial Ionospheric Mirror. 1990
- 1993 – Electromagnetic Interference Impact of the Proposed Emitters for the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program 1993
- 1997 – HAARP is described as a “Weapon System“
- 1999 – The US Air Force Geophysics Lab (now AFRL) and the US Navy Office of Naval Research discuss HAARP at their Joint Services Program. 1999
- 1999 – HAARP will also be used to search for nukes underground. See: Imaging of Underground Structure Using HAARP 1999
Why Heat the Ionosphere?
- Destroying the Van Allen Belts, more gently referred to as radiation belt remediation
- create an “Artifical Ionospheric Mirror” (AIM)
- create ELF waves that are heard worldwide
- create plasma clouds
- create airglow using HF radio waves and/or rocket exhaust plumes
- create holes in the ionosphere
- modifies the magnetic properties of our planet to probe underground structures
- protecting against EMP from solar flares and high altitude nuclear devices (graphic below)
... Think we are crazy? The Russian government does not:
'The U.S. plans to carry out large-scale scientific experiments, under the HAARP program, and not controlled by the global community, will create weapons capable of breaking radio communication lines and equipment installed on spaceships and rockets, provoke serious accidents in electricity networks and in oil and gas pipelines and have a negative impact on the mental health of people populating entire regions, the deputies said. They demanded that an international ban be put on such large-scale geophysical experiments. The appeal, signed by 90 deputies, has been sent to President Vladimir Putin, to the United Nations and other international organizations, to the parliaments and leaders of the UN member countries, to the scientific public and to mass media outlets.'"
Okay, maybe artificially heating the ionosphere isn't so innocent.
No matter which version you choose to believe (or somewhere in-between), do you really think purposeful anthropogenic climate alteration is a good idea in the first place?
Could these HAARP activities be the reason for troubling anomalies in our climate data and modelling? Anomalies capitalized upon by climate denying interests in their fight against climate activists and concerned scientists.
Considering those copper needles from MIT in 1963 are still orbiting the Earth today, is there a chance that some scientific communities exist that are too reckless and arrogant for us to tolerate unchecked?
