In his 1931 book The Scientific Outlook, Lord Bertrand Arthur Russell, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1950, discussed manipulating the weather. “It may be that God made the world,” Russell proclaimed, “that is no reason why we should not make it over.”
Charles Galton Darwin, a physicist who worked on the Manhattan Project, who was also the grandson of Charles Darwin, talked about gaining direct control over the climate in his 1952 book, The Next Million Years.
Weather modification is now possible. Attempts to modify the weather have been made since at least the late 1940s. In 1947 the US Navy, Army, and Air Force, working with General Electric Corporation, made the first attempt to modify a hurricane under Project Cirrus, by dropping about 80 pounds of dry ice into clouds.
Project Cumulus, carried out by the British Royal Air Force between 1949 and 1952, included cloud seeding experiments over southern England. It was allegedly responsible for the 1952 flood in the Devon village of Lynmouth, which resulted in 34 deaths and the destruction of multiple structures.
In the 1950s the US Forest Service carried out a project called Skyfire in which they experimented with cloud seeding techniques to decrease lightning in order to reduce forest fires. Then, under Project Stormfury from 1962 to 1983, the United States Government tried to disrupt the inner structure of hurricanes in the Atlantic by flying aircraft into them, and seeding them with silver iodide.
Weather modification involves three major categories: suppression of weather patterns, intensification of weather patterns, and in some cases the introduction of completely new weather patterns. The two basic methods to accomplish weather modification include cloud seeding and directed-energy.
Multiple countries, including the United States, are now modifying the weather. In November of 1997 the Wall Street Journal reported that in order to dissipate excess fog, the Malaysian government would be signing an agreement with Russian officials for use of technology which would allow them to create a cyclone.
The state-run Oklahoma Weather Modification Program conducts cloud seeding operations in Oklahoma to enhance the development of rain showers and thunderstorms. In October of 2005, Business Week reported that China, Russia, and Mexico are modifying the weather, with China spending about $40 million a year on a weather management program.
Since the early 1960s Weather Modification Incorporated of Fargo North Dakota has offered a professional weather modification service to insurance companies, water resource management groups, and federal and state government research organizations. They specialize in weather modification, cloud seeding, rain enhancement, and fog dispersion.
A Russian company called Elate Intelligent Technologies Incorporated has offered a professional weather modification service using directed-energy since at least 1992. The unit consists of a power supply which provides current to a series of antennas that focus an electrical charge into the air. The unit is connected to a computer and can tailor weather patterns over a distance of about 200 miles.
An Instrument of War
According to US military reports that appeared in 1996, weather modification will be used across the entire spectrum of conflict to achieve domestic and international military objectives. However, weather modification has already been used for military purposes.
During the Vietnam War the US Government used weather as a weapon under Project Popeye, which was an attempt to increase the rainfall over a supply route called the Ho Chi Minh Trail, which extended from North to South Vietnam. The technique used seeding units which were composed of silver iodide developed at the Naval Weapons Center in China Lake California. The project began in 1966, lasted for a half a decade, and was considered a success.
In 1970 Zbigniew Brzezinski, cofounder of the Trilateral Commission, advocated the covert use of weather attacks, such as long periods of drought or storm, to force a nation into compliance.
The United Nations Weather Weapons Treaty of May 1977 warned that scientific and technical developments may open new possibilities with respect to modification of the environment and that the hostile use of these techniques could have effects extremely harmful to human welfare.
The US Air Force mentioned that the UN’s weather modification treaty, which prohibits the hostile use of weather modification, is not applicable because their attacks will not be large scale (encompassing several hundred km), long lasting (several months in length), or result in serious injury to human life.
Regarding the deception which will be used to mislead the enemy and create conditions of deniability, the US Air Force said that the enemy’s information systems would be spoofed so they’d make wrong decisions. The spoofing would also allow them to disguise their weather attacks, which they said would be indistinguishable from naturally occurring weather. The Naval Law Review’s 1998 article, A Primer on the Employment of Non-Lethal Weapons, stated that weather modification could be used as a NLW.1
A 1994 US Air Force JNLWD report also advocated using weather attacks to reduce the comfort levels of the enemy. These weather attacks, according to NLW advocate John Alexander, will play a strategic role in future conflicts. He describes weather warfare as a possible weapon of mass destruction.
The US Navy’s 1994 Nonlethal Warfare Proposal, acknowledged the successful use of weather modification as an instrument of warfare in Vietnam and described how the creation of floods, blizzards, and droughts could be used to destroy a nation’s economy.
The creation of fog is now possible. Synthetic fog made from glycols and glycerin has even been proposed as a nonlethal weapon. Fog has been widely used in the entertainment industry for years. According to the US Air Force, equipment exists which will quickly generate thick fog 100 meters long.
A precision lightning strike with synthetic lightning is also possible. The 2005 book, Weapons Grade: How Modern Warfare Gave Birth to Our High-Tech World, mentioned that artificial lightning had been accomplished using lasers. One reportedly had a range of about 200 meters, but could possibly be extended to about 2 miles. The 1997 Weather Wars: Pentagon Plans Weather as a Weapon article by the New York Times noted that the US Air Force was considering using such lasers for lightning attacks.
The US Air Force itself referenced using controlled lightning strikes to attack its targets. The Tofflers suggested that lasers can even be used to cut holes in the ozone layer above the land of an adversary.
According to this information, weather modification is possible using electromagnetic waves. In the US and other countries, large weapons platforms to accomplish this appear to have been created.2
One such weapon is known as the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Project (HAARP). In their book Angels Don’t Play This HAARP: Advances in Tesla Technology, Jeane Manning and Dr. Nick Begich refer to it as one of the most powerful multi-purpose weapons developed by the US military.
HAARP is a world-class facility located in Gakona Alaska which consists of a megawatt radio transmitter and the most sophisticated technology available.3 It appeared in a 2009 History Channel documentary called Weather Warfare and, a Discovery Channel program in 2005 entitled, Owning the Weather for its alleged weather control capabilities.
It works by heating the ionosphere, which is an active, electrically-charged part of the upper atmosphere, that exists from 40 to 500 miles above the earth, and which acts as a shield against the bombardment of high-energy particles from space.
The primary component of HAARP is a radio transmitter called the Ionosphere Research Instrument (IRI), also called the phased array. It consists of 180, 72’ tall towers that collectively transmit a narrow beam of energy from 2.8 to 10 MHz.4 The towers are mounted on thermopiles spaced 80’ apart in a 12 x 15 rectangular arrangement. Each one has two crossed antennas (dipoles) at the top, one for the low band (2.8 to 8.3 MHz), the other for the high band (7 to 10 MHz).
The entire IRI is surrounded by a fence and sits on gravel padding on about 40 acres of land. There is a reflector screen about 15’ from the ground which helps to redirect energy from the IRI while allowing vehicular access underneath it.
Every dipole has its own transmitter. The transmitters are located underneath the IRI in 30 environmentally-controlled shelters that are 38’ long by 8’ wide by 10’ high. Each contains 12, 10 kW transmitters for a total of 360 transmitters that supply the IRI with 3.6 megawatts of power. The transmitters themselves are powered by 5 large generators that produce 16 megawatts of power.
The energy generated by the IRI is combined into a single focused steerable beam that heats and lifts exact portions of the ionosphere. The beam is capable of making a series of invisible ionospheric mirrors which create a conduit for energy transfer over great distances.
It has a variety of diagnostic instruments to monitor its effect on the atmosphere. They include ELF and VLF receivers, a digital HF ionosonde, magnetometers, photometers, a VLF sounder, and VHF riometer. It also has HF receivers, UHF and VHF radars, optical and infrared cameras, and other sensing equipment.
HAARP was created in three phases. The first was the Developmental Prototype (DP), which had 18 antenna elements, organized in three columns by six rows. It used about 360 kW of combined transmitter power. The next was the Filled Developmental Prototype (FDP) that had 48 antenna units arrayed in six columns by eight rows, with 960 kW of transmitter power. The current and presumably final phase, called the Final IRI (FIRI), was completed in March 2007, and consists of the specifications previously mentioned.
The best scientists in ionosphere research were consulted to build HAARP. The facility, including computer systems and controls, was designed and built by British Aerospace Systems (BAES) and Raytheon Corporation, on contracts funded by the Air Force, Navy, and DARPA.
It was approved by congress for funding in 1990 by its defense spending bills. Research for HAARP began in 1992 by Advanced Power Technologies Incorporated, (APTI), a subsidiary of the Atlantic Richfield Corporation (ARCO). APTI, along with the HAARP patents, was sold to E Systems Incorporated in 1994. Raytheon then acquired E Systems and now owns the patents. It and BAES were the two biggest participants in its creation.
Other institutions that helped to create it include: the University of Alaska, Boston College, UCLA, Clemson University, Dartmouth College, Cornell University, Johns Hopkins University, University of Maryland, College Park, Penn State University (ARL), University of Massachusetts, MIT, Polytechnic Institute of New York University, Stanford University, and the University of Tulsa. These institutions are contributing to future research efforts.
HAARP is managed by the US Air Force’s Research Laboratory (AFRL), the Office of Naval Research (ONR) of the US Navy, DARPA, and the University of Alaska’s Geophysical Institute. The management team also consists of scientists from universities, the private sector, and government.
HAARP can produce continuous wave (CW) or pulsed modes of operation. Although the effective-radiated power which the IRI emits is in the range of 2.8 to 10 MHz, it can also produce higher or lower frequencies operating in conversion mode, where the modulated radiation is pointed into the ionosphere, which demodulates it, then returns it in the frequency encoded in the modulation.
In low-frequency conversion mode HAARP has a tunable frequency range of 0.001 Hz to 40 kHz which allows for low-frequency waves such as ELF, ULF, and VLF. In high-frequency conversion mode it is capable of generating infrared and visible light which means frequencies into the terahertz (THz) range.
The ELF waves which it produces can be transmitted over thousands of kilometers covering a significant portion of the earth through a waveguide, which is a type of virtual pathway formed by the ground and ionosphere. These waves will pass through basically every non-shielded structure on the planet.
HAARP is also capable of transferring massive amounts of energy to specific points on the planet by creating a virtual conduit consisting of a series of ionospheric mirrors. These mirrors are also called lenses or Artificial Ionospheric Mirrors (AIMs) by the US Air Force.
They’re created by focusing energy on an area of the ionosphere to cause a depletion of electrons, which alters the refractive properties of that specific area. The mirrors are shaped to exact dimensions to redirect the energy to a predetermined destination.
According to the US Air Force, AIMs emitted from a ground-based system could allow the precise delivery of electromagnetic radiation at any frequency up to 2 GHz. They would be created to function on a specific frequency, and would allow the transmission of radiation based on that exact frequency through the ionosphere. By creating virtual mirrors in the ionosphere, HAARP is also capable of over-the-horizon communication.
HAARP is basically a multi-purpose tool. It exists to detect underground structures, to search for natural resources, to address national security issues, to communicate with submerged submarines using ELF waves, for surveillance purposes, and to examine new options for strategic communications.
The HAARP website describes its purpose this way: “The program’s purpose is to provide a research facility to conduct pioneering experiments in ionospheric phenomena … for developing ionospheric enhancement technology for communications and surveillance purposes.”
The DOD says that HAARP is used to enhance the performance of C4ISR systems. It will provide communications for submarines, and geophysical prospecting using earth penetrating tomogrophy (EPT) to detect natural resources such as oil, mineral deposits and gas. EPT is also used to detect underground facilities for national security reasons.
The Tesla Death Ray
Dr. Bernard Eastland, the physicist who developed the concepts for HAARP in several patents dating back to the 1980s, was retained by APTI as a consultant. Dr. Eastland revealed that the military was interested in his plans for a weapon which would direct energy into the ionosphere to destroy enemy rockets and disable communications.
The military denies that HAARP is based on Eastland’s patents. However, there is considerable triangulation between Eastland’s patent/HAARP, the military’s capabilities and interests, and Dr. Nikola Tesla’s Death Ray. Furthermore, Manning and Dr. Begich provide much evidence that HAARP is based on Eastland’s patents, which themselves originate from the work of Dr. Tesla.
Dr. Nikola Tesla, the famous inventor and winner of the 1915 Nobel Physics Prize, is credited with many inventions, including wireless technology and alternating current electricity. Dr. Tesla worked with Wall Street industrialists such J.P. Morgan who withdrew their funding after realizing that he was inventing mechanisms to deliver free unlimited energy. As a result, Dr. Tesla became blacklisted. Although he was probably the greatest inventor that ever lived, many of the comforts we enjoy today that he created have not been attributed to him because of this.
Dr. Tesla had plans for an aircraft that could rise vertically and use the earth’s magnetic fields as a means of propulsion, as well as a watch-sized device, which would allow the instant, clear, wireless transmission of sound to any place on the planet. Another one of his inventions included a small electrical engine capable of moving a vehicle up to 90 miles per hour. After his death in 1943 his belongings were seized by the FBI and declared top secret.
It was reported by the New York Times in July of 1934 that Dr. Tesla had plans for a death ray that was capable of destroying a fleet of 10,000 airplanes at a distance of 250 miles from a nation’s borders. The beam could cause armies of millions to drop dead immediately. It could operate silently and invisibly, from a great distance, and leave no evidence of its use. “An army of 1,000,000 dead, annihilated in an instant, he [Dr. Tesla] said, would not reveal even under the most powerful microscope just what catastrophe had caused its destruction.” US Patent 4686605 of August 11, 1987, issued to Dr. Eastland, was kept sealed for about a year under a government secrecy order. It describes a ground-based, multi-purpose weapon that uses microwaves to ionize a select portion of the atmosphere.
The patent recommended northern Alaska as the location for the weapon due to its abundance of natural fuel sources. The invention provided the ability to focus unprecedented amounts of power in the earth’s atmosphere at strategic locations.
Eastland’s weapon can disrupt or even modify satellite communication by using magnetic mirrors to intercept their microwave transmissions. These mirrors can also be used to intercept other types of wireless transmissions for eavesdropping purposes, or to enhance friendly communications.
They can provide total disruption of communications over a very large portion of the earth. According to the patent, all modes of civilian and military communications including land, sea, and air, could be disrupted simultaneously. Dr. Tesla’s invention consisted of large, land-based, stationary power plants affixed with transmitters. A mobile death ray was in the making by him, as reported in the New York Sun’s July 11, 1934 article, Death-Ray Machine Described.
The US Air Force mentioned that a ground-based directed-energy weapon could be used to create a series of AIMs in the ionosphere, which would allow over-the-horizon communications, as well as the disruption or interception (eavesdropping) of enemy communications. Although they don’t mention HAARP specifically, clearly, they’re talking about a HAARP-type facility.
According to the Air Force, the same technology could be used for weather modification. “The implications of such control,” says the Air Force, “are enormous: one would no longer be subject to the vagaries of the natural ionosphere but would instead have direct control of the propagation environment.” (Source:)
Similarly, Eastland’s patent describes how mirrors that are charged to certain frequencies can be used as a conduit to transport particles that have certain characteristics to specific locations. The same conduit could be used to increase or decrease existing molecules or groups of them, such as ozone, nitrogen concentrations, etc.
Because of the precision with which this device can allegedly target an area, the atmospheric characteristics of an area can be altered. This means the manipulation of weather patterns. The patent specifically states that weather modification is possible using mirrors to direct energy into the ionosphere.
In 1935 the New York Herald Tribune reported that Dr. Tesla had been working on a unit which would transmit energy into the stratosphere to light the sky in order to eliminate the dangers of nocturnal navigation. This seems similar to the Navy/Air Force’s 1998 report, which tells us that HAARP is capable of lighting up the skies with megawatt power.
According to Eastland’s patent, the guidance systems of missiles and aircraft can be disrupted by lifting large regions of the atmosphere to create drag so they’ll encounter friction, or encompassing them with an electromagnetic sheath to disrupt their functioning.
“This would have significant military implications,” it explains, “particularly as a barrier to or confusing factor for hostile missiles or airplanes.” The Air Force has expressed an interest in doing exactly this too, heating the ionosphere with a HPM to disrupt the functioning of spacecraft.
In July 1934, the New York Sun wrote that Dr. Tesla had developed plans for a land-based weapon consisting of multiple power houses that projected a beam of destructive energy which could destroy almost anything. It could also provide a protective dome around an entire country.
“Anything with which the ray came in contact would be destroyed,” announced the Sun. “Planes would fall, armies would be wiped out and even the smallest country might so insure ‘security’ against which nothing could avail.”
Another characteristic connecting Eastland’s weapon to Tesla’s Death Ray is illustrated in US Patent 5038664, also issued to Eastland. It describes how a protective dome could cover a select surface of the planet. It works in the following way: One beam of circularly polarized electromagnetic radiation in the frequency range of 1800 to 3600 kHz forms the initial dome. A second beam in the range of 20 to 1800 kHz is then aimed at the top of the same region to further ionize the existing plasma. The second beam raises the mirror points of the existing plasma. The combination of these energy beams creates a protective dome of 20 million volts.
According to E Magazine, Pravda, Wired, and independent media such as Global Research, and other sources which base their claims on available factual information, HAARP is capable of causing droughts, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and lighting the skies with immense power.
It is allegedly capable of destroying the electronic systems of aircraft, missiles, and space satellites, as well as disrupting radio, TV, and radar signals. These claims are consistent with the US military’s admitted objectives regarding weather warfare.
Professor Chossudovsky of the independent media outlet Global Research says that although HAARP is presented to the public as a scientific research institute, its capabilities suggest otherwise. “HAARP is part of the weapons arsenal of the New World Order,” he announced. A nation’s economy could potentially be disrupted through climatic manipulations. This can all be accomplished, says Professor Chossudovsky, without the target country realizing that an attack had caused the collapse.
Custom tailored weather attacks on a micro level will be used with communications disruption for, “complete dominance of global communications and counterspace control,” announced the US Air Force in its Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025 report of August 1996. This will be accomplished using high-powered microwaves directed into the ionosphere. “Weather-modification offers the warfighter a wide-range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary.”
Wired announced in January 2008 that an online Russian military journal (www.nuclearno.ru) referred to HAARP as a “geophysical weapon” cloaked as a research facility, capable of triggering earthquakes and destroying the economy of an entire country.
In its Acoustic Weapons Prospective Assessment article of 2001, Science and Global Security stated that infrasound, (which is a type of ELF wave that HAARP can produce), can cause localized earthquakes.
The Tofflers also wrote about how sophisticated ecological weaponry could use electromagnetic waves to cause earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, in their 1993 book, War and Antiwar.
At the University of Georgia on April 28, 1997, former Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen announced: “Others are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, [and] volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves.”
According to Brzezinski, weather warfare and other high-tech weapons would be available to the leaders of some countries to launch covert weather attacks against other nations. He also specifically mentioned the use of “death rays” for conducting what he described as secret warfare.
The Tesla’s New Device Like Bolts of Thor article, which appeared in the December 8, 1915 issue of the New York Times, mentioned how Dr. Tesla claimed his death ray was so accurate it could paralyze or kill anyone on the planet.
“It is perfectly practicable,” he announced, “to transmit electrical energy without wires and produce destructive effects at a distance.” “With transmitters of this kind,” explained Dr. Tesla, “we are enabled to project electrical energy in any amount to any distance and apply it for innumerable purposes, both in peace and war.”
In addition to HAARP’s destructive capabilities that span the physical realm, Manning and Dr. Begich, as well as other sources have noted that the ELF waves which HAARP can produce, include the exact same dominant frequencies on which the human brain functions. As mentioned earlier, these waves have a documented effect of entraining the human brain to induce negative emotions such as anger, fear, disgust, rage, and depression.
Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich of Ohio attempted to ban weapons such as HAARP in October of 2001 by introducing the Space Preservation Act of 2001 (HR-2977). This would have prohibited all land-based directed-energy weapons capable of manipulating the ionosphere to change the weather or attack people. Specific references were made to weapons capable of information war, mood management, and mind control.
“An analysis of statements emanating from the US Air Force,” commented Professor Chossudovsky, “points to the unthinkable: the covert manipulation of weather patterns, communications and electric power systems as a weapon of global warfare.”
Its potential, as revealed in the available military documents, combined with the capabilities outlined in the patents, plus the inventions of Dr. Tesla in the early 1900s, suggests that HAARP has much to do with both Eastland’s patents and Dr. Tesla’s work on which they’re based. This evidence portrays HAARP as the Tesla Death Ray disguised as a scientific
1 I’ve concluded that the DOD has attacked me with multiple thunder storms and probably at least one hurricane since the summer of 2005. PsyOp themes are used to let me know they are attacks. Many have been synchronized with electrical outages. They have demonstrated the precision targeting of trees with lightening strikes, causing them to fall in a specific area. I’ve noticed that some of these storms exhibit what seems to be unnatural characteristics. For instance the sky lighting up in a perfectly timed sequence, as if controlled by a timer. While on a farm in Maine during the spring of 2009, it rained most days for several weeks resulting in severe crop damage. It was frequently communicated to me that these were attacks.
2 A similar facility exists in Russia known as the Sura Ionospheric Heating Facility, located in Vasilsursk. Alaska has another one near Fairbanks known as the High Power Auroral Stimulation (HIPAS). A facility called the European Incoherent Scatter Radar (EISCAT) exists near Tromso in Norway. Other countries which have these “research” facilities include Peru, Ukraine, and Tadzhikistan. See the HAARP Fact Sheet at http://www.haarp.alaska.edu/haarp/factSheet.html and the Pravada article, USA and Russia Supposedly Develop Secret Meteorological Weapons, September 30, 2005.
3 Some sources say its located in Gakona, others say it is near Gakona. The HAARP Fact Sheet at http://www.haarp.alaska.edu/haarp/factSheet.html says it is located near Gakona, while the following sources say it is located in Gakona: An Overview of the HAARP Program at http://www.haarp.alaska.edu, and the November 5, 1998 report, HAARP: Research and Applications, by the Air Force Research Laboratory and the Office of Naval Research.
4 Wired says these towers are 68 feet tall in its BAE Systems Completes Facility for Ionospheric Physics Research report, of June 28, 2007. The HAARP Fact Sheet, at http://www.haarp.alaska.edu/haarp/factSheet.html, lists them at 72 feet.
5 Science and Global Security does not mention HAARP specifically, only that ELF waves can trigger earthquakes.
