After many years of speculation and controversy, HAARP in Alaska has now allegedly been shut down by the US military.
Whilst HAARP, which stands for High-Frequency
Auroral Research Program, is supposedly nothing more than a set of antenna arrays
used to predict the weather, a simple Google search for HAARP brings up
thousands of pages of conspiracy theories surrounding the program and it
has become known mainly as a weather modification program.
Some people claim that HAARP was used to control the weather in order to
affect the mood of a population, whereas others believed that HAARP was
used for psychotronic mind control purposes.
When Managing Director of HAARP, John Hecksher, was presented with a
600-page report proving he was lying during a video interview, he
admitted that HAARP works by shooting a particle beam into the
ionosphere at a radiated power level of 3.6MW.
Whereas some whistleblowers claim that the particle beams are used to
shoot down UFO's, others claim that HAARP is used to artificially induce
earthquakes. In fact, former president of Venezuala, Hugo Chavez,
claimed that HAARP was used to trigger the Haiti earthquake.
In addition former president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, claimed in
2010 that HAARP was responsible for causing the devastating flooding in
Pakistan. Also, the Russian parliament aired concerns about the US
military using HAARP to further develop weather weapons.
Now the US Air Force is set to shut down HAARP, claiming:
"We're moving on to other ways of managing the ionosphere, which the
HAARP facility was really designed to do. HAARP is no longer an area
that we have any need for in the future. We have finished our work that
we've wanted to do up there, and we are moving on to other ways of
managing the ionosphere. That's what HAARP is designed to do, to be able
to inject energy into the ionosphere and control it."
However, the question remains; has the US Air Force really shut down HAARP?
