MBadgero July 24, 2013 09:52 AM Thank-you for filling us in on what HAARP is and what it doesn't do. MD July 24, 2013 10:56 AM Yep thanks for the info... the science is interesting, though limited in usefulness. So what does HAARP really do. (The new contractors will sign thousands of pages of confidentiality agreements with severe penalties, so they won't tell us.) I'm sure a lot of that is still classified, or have they started offering guided tours??, nect tell us what pine gap "really" does. (Sure everyone knows what we have been told it does....) Matt Fletcher July 24, 2013 12:36 PM No offense Brian but I think there were a few things left out about the capabilities of HAARP and the science involved with transferring magnetic energy through resonance and the affects it can have. I am not going to expand into a scientific argument but I will say that if it weren't able to do anything in the last 20 years do you thing the DOD would be signing a new contract to keep running it or would they drop it and leave it to NASA. Most advanced nations (Russia, USA, Australia, Germany, China, & Japan) seem to have built or are building similar stations run by their defense departments as well (strictly for research purposes only of course). I would also like to add that I am glad the USA has it because I live in the USA and HAARP (much like nuclear weapons) works as a deterrent against certain types of attacks. It also appears HAARP is not the only such system the USA has (look into that if you'd like.) If you want to know the true potential of such devices read what Tesla developed and said about them. Of course that's probably just a giant waste of time because that guy was just a joke right, what did he ever do. Him, Einstein, Edison, Schumann and others of that time didn't know anything because they lived in the dark ages before modern technology. Mirmillion July 24, 2013 01:31 PM Yes, there are good reasons for HARP to be close to the origin of the earth's lines of flux. Of course, research there is a little more varied than the publicly available "news" would indicate. Its not hard to imagine electromagnetic and gravity-based research and their derivatives, such as delivery systems and both communication and radar shields. We can only hope that advances in knowledge and development of real world applications are for the benefit, rather than demise, of the planet. Ben O'Brien July 24, 2013 04:57 PM That was an interesting article though it could have been better if there was more layman's terms and simpler explanations. As Einstein said you don't understand something till you can explain it to your grandma (not fellow engineer who already comprehends it). How about next you do chemotrails. Liaquat Ali July 24, 2013 04:58 PM My worst fear is that, it might somehow trigger the amplification of the energy radiated from the sun, through the ionosphere into the ozone layer like a chain reaction, which in turn might cause depletion or annihilation of the ozone layer, hence turning the planet into a junior Mars. So please exercise extreme caution while conducting such type of experiments for the sake of humanity. J. LightFeather July 24, 2013 05:04 PM Interesting that you did not dig any deeper than the propaganda on their website. The original proposal for the HAARP project stated that the purpose was to control the weather for warfare. Since there are now 18 of these facilities around the world, pay attention to the giant storms, tornados that are over a mile wide, and snowstorms that appear like clockwork every Tuesday to Thursday on the same path since 2009. Weather has never been this regular, and tornados and hurricanes have never been this large and destructive. Take a look at the website: http://geoengineeringwatch.com You can also read all the patents to control the weather since the 1950's on this site. Time to wake up and do your research. okshock July 24, 2013 05:41 PM Thanks Ben for the Einstein quote... You don't understand something till you can explain it to your grandma Just wondering Mr. Dodson... Did you go to the HAARP site to verify all the material that you are so sure of?? Or did you simply take the word of what the operators told you?? Pin July 24, 2013 10:16 PM It's still unclear after reading the article, is military interest in this research only for communication purposes? What's wrong with using satellites? I hope that they are being responsible when it comes to borderline geo-engineering like this, but military institutions tend to be blind to the long term consequences of their actions. Ron Johnson July 25, 2013 12:39 AM depletion or annihilation of the ozone layer, hence turning the planet into a junior Mars. You're confusing the ozone layer with the Van Allen Belts. And maybe have watched "Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea" once too often.
