While the debate rages regarding whether or not the U.S. government uses weather manipulation technology to steer storms like Hurricane Sandy, further evidence shows the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has been engaged in research to do just that for years.

In 2008, an article in New Scientist discussed a new DHS project that funded research into guiding and directing the intensity of hurricanes.

Citing Hurricane Katrina as the basis for the project, the Hurricane Aerosol and Microphysics Program (HAAMP) worked with Project Stormfury veteran Joe Golden and a panel of other experts “to test the effects of aerosols on the structure and intensity of hurricanes.” HAAMP was funded under contract HSHQDC-09-C-00064 at a taxpayer price tag of $64.1 million.

In 2009, Richard Spinrad, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) assistant administrator for the Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR), sent then DHS Program Manager for Advanced Research Projects Agency (HSARPA) William Laska an official memorandum regarding OAR’s review of a “Statement for Work” for HAAMP.

“While OAR recognizes that weather modification, in general, is occurring through the funding of private enterprises, NOAA does not support research that entails efforts to modify hurricanes,” Spinrad wrote.

He then went on to list all the reasons Project Stormfury was discontinued, including the inability to separate the difference in hurricane behavior when human intervention is present versus nature’s inherent unpredictability overall. Spinrad also noted that any collaboration with DHS must occur within NOAA’s mission (which Spinrad and NOAA obviously felt HAAMP did not do).

NOAA houses the National Hurricane Center, the primary U.S. organization responsible for tracking and predicting hurricanes. Recent budget cuts are expected to hit NOAA’s satellite program, the heart of the organization’s weather forecasting system, by $182 million.

Note that even Spinrad admits the existence of weather modification programs as if its general, accepted knowledge. Although DHS was turned down, the agency moved ahead with their research without NOAA’s participation.

A paper co-written by several participants in the HAAMP project including Joe Golden entitled, “Aerosol Effects and Microstructure on the Intensity of Tropical Cyclones,” was released in the July 2012 Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society. In conclusion, the authors wrote, “We recommend that hurricane reconnaissance and research airplanes are equipped with aerosol and cloud physics instruments and fly patterns that will allow such measurements.” Drone use in “areas where safety concerns preclude aircraft measurements” was also called for.

The spraying of aerosols into the air, otherwise known by the monicker “chemtrails,” is promoted under the guise of geoengineering with a surface excuse to halt global warming. The practice has been openly called for more and more recently, although the chemtrail phenomenon has already been reported across the globe for years now. In the Environmental Research Letters journal, scientists’ most recent geoengineering proposal detailed an “affordable” $5 billion project wherein airplanes will spray sulfur particles in the atmosphere to cool the planet.

In HAAMP’s final report, authors concluded, “Pollution aerosols reduced the cloud drop size and suppressed the warm rain forming processes in the external spiral cloud bands of the storms.” It was also mentioned, “During the past decade it was found that aerosols (including anthropogenic ones) substantially affect cloud microphysics,” proving deliberate chemtrailing has been occurring for at least the past ten years.

Though the paper was labeled “final report,” further journal articles regarding HAAMP have been released, and the HAAMP project was reportedly not scheduled to end until 2016.

The question remains: With its bizarre combination of elements, was deliberate manipulation through HAAMP research at play in Hurricane Sandy?

Carbon Black Chemtrails Weaponized Hurricane Sandy and Katrina 7

Climate Scientist Confirms Jets are “Dumping Aerosols Into the Upper Atmosphere”

 NASA Warned New York About Hurricane Danger in 2006

Scientists told us a storm like Sandy would be catastrophic. When will we listen?  Mother Jones

” In other words, scientists say, the risk of the “rise of the oceans” is steadily going to increase. And when the next disaster happens, we’ll again realize that they told us so. Just like they did before Katrina, and before Sandy…and before the next big one, whenever it is.”

Not one corporate media story has yet appeared explaining how Operation HAMP – a project of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) –  was deploying tons of geoengineering aerosols over Sandy to modify intensity and direction.

Media silence is more evidence that perpetrators of eco-terrorism planned to Intensify and steer a tropical cyclone into the northeast USA.

Furthermore, If the HAMP program demonstrated the effectiveness of using aerosols to mitigate hurricane intensity, why were those “mitigating aerosols” not used on Hurricane sandy?

Next: The Local Drill Up: WESTCHESTER COUNTYNY ARES/RACES Previous: The Rye Plan

Westchester County Communications Officer Sandy Fried, an Amateur Radio operator and ODES staff member, had recently attended a training seminar at the National Hurricane Center in Miami. Part of the training was a simulation using data from the Hurricane of 1938 that caused major losses on Long Island and in Westchester. The texts of the simulated bulletins, forecasts, discussions and strike probabilities along with the hurricane’s track were sent home with the seminar attendees. We named the simulated hurricane after Sandy, who incidentally was nine years old during the real Hurricane of 1938.

These texts were used as the drill stimulus. They were time-shifted to simulate land-fall around 6pm on Saturday, October 4th. Working backward from this time, we used these texts to generate and automatically update a World Wide Web status page (http://www.weca.org/SET) and send email to the Westchester ARES/RACES email reflector and fax to the County Emergency Operations center at the times that the National Weather Service would normally have sent them.

Coincidental to the ionospheric heater at HAARP and elsewhere,  Amateur Radio operators commonly achieve great distances in communication by bouncing electromagnetic radio emissions off the ionosphere. The common term among Hams is “skip”.

HURRICANE SANDY: The HAARP and Aerosol Geoengineered Storm of the Century 14

Steering Hurricanes and modifying intensity a goal of the Department of Homeland Security.

In Aug 2008, THE TELEGRAPH reported that US scientists “believe they can weaken the strength of tropical storms and steer them off course using a range of methods that include spraying fine particles into hurricanes or cooling the sea water in areas where they form.”

Like 9/11, Frankenstorm Sandy could more accurately described as a coordinated exercize than an unplanned disaster.

“What emerges is a clear record of  media, government, military and inter-agency secrecy and complicity not acknowledged since the Manhattan Project” – H. Saive

This morning (Oct 30th), US NEWS reported that InfoWars,  TheIntelHub , and ConsfearacyNewz had published a “conspiracy theory” that alleged Obama had used HAARP to engineer Hurricane SANDY in order to guarantee his re-election to a second term. (source)

But conspicuous by it’s absence was mention of a documented aerosol geoengineering program carried out by the Department of Homeland Security  (DHS) under project “HAMP”. (Hurricane Aerosol Microphysics Program)

Details of modifying the strength of hurricanes under Project HAMP was revealed at the 2010 American Meteorological Association meeting.   Documents associated with HAMP reveal that aerosol geoenginnering is common knowledge to the White House, Pentagon, NOAA, National Hurricane Center and many government agencies. (source)

A stunning admission was announced at one session that revealed aerosol geoengineering was used to modify the intensity and possible storm track of Hurricane Katrina in 2005.  (source)

The public deserves to know that President Obama and corporate media – including the Weather Channel – had advance knowledge that SANDY would be subjected to intense aerosol geoengineering and possible HAARP manipulation in order to assure targeted intensity and land-fall in the Northeast United States.

Like 9/11, Frankenstorm Sandy is more accurately described as a coordinated exercize than an unplanned disaster

You won’t believe your eyes when you see what this video reveals!

Satellite and Radar captured Infrasonic Undulation, Chemtrails enmass and ChemDUMPING!  Multiple weather system steering and super storm creation, right before your eyes!

Definately HTA – HAARP Type Array infrasonic undulation. But it’s not just the array we know as HAARP in Alaska. It is a miraid of TTA network arrays working in concert. Arrays can be ground based, Satellite emitters, Field antenna signal boosters, flight based, ship based, mobile or even hand held. (Depending on the civilian or military use.) There are even TTA signal echo buoys thoughout our oceans. Ionospher fortified w-chemtrail as a reflective frequency mirror.

You have to ask yourself who is at the helm? And why are they doing it? What could be gained by manipulating a storm that so far has killed over 40 people, on a journey of devastation expected to eclipse any in this century on the east coast so far?

National news networks are warning that the election could be directly affected, delayed or hampered because of the devastation and loss of services such as electricity, travel etc…

The reality of weather modification is no conspiracy theory.

But ask yourself this, “If we can modify weather then why don’t we still do it for the good. For instance, seeding clouds to make it rain, so our breadbasket doesn’t become a dust bowl, or so fires that burned for so long could be quenched? And why don’t we steer hurricanes away from murderous rampages, instead of directing them into it?” There is no more question we have the technology. And no excuse not to use it for good.

Since before the 50′s, weather modification techniques have existed. In fact, the threat of “weather weapons” was so imminent that the United Nations felt it necessary to draft a treaty ensuring no nation would use this “new means of warfare” against one another. Why would the U.N. draft a treaty if weather modification was just a conspiracy theory?

Treaty defined “weather weapons” as follows: “[…] the term “environmental modification techniques” refers to any technique for changing — through the deliberate manipulation of natural processes–the dynamics, composition or structure of the Earth, including its biota, lithosphere, hydrosphere andatmosphere, or of outer space.”

Hurricane Sandy Under Aerosol Geoengineering by DHS to Modify Intensity and Land-fall 39

At the 2010 American Meteorological Association meeting it was revealed that aerosol geoengineering was applied to Hurricane Katrina to modify the intensity of the storm.

Hurricane SANDY 10-28-2012  Intellicast Geoengineering Update for DHS Operation HAMP

By Harold Saive

The 2010 American Meteorological Society (AMS) meeting presented details of aerosol geoengineering program run by the Department of Homeland Security.  The program included discussion of how aerosols were effective at decreasing and increasing the intensity of Hurricane Katrina.

The current aerosol geoengineering of Hurricane Sandy is a continuation of the Hurricane Aerosol and Microphysics Program (HAMP).

Potential Law Suits to be Filed – Chemtrail Geoengineering Lawsuit

The Department of Homeland Security in the matter of operation HAMP could have their immunity from liability and prosecution tested in class-action law suit.

The confirmed aerosol geoengineering, deliberate manipulation and potential intensification of Hurricane Sandy under the DHS  H.A.M.P. operation, could be prosecuted as criminal act when the consequence cannot be distinguished from a Weapon of Mass Destruction to be inflicted on the lives and property of citizens of the United Sates by DHS’s deliberate and covert experimental modification.

WASHINGTON POST – Posted at 10:45 AM ET, 05/19/2009 – DHS Rebuffed by NOAA on Hurricane Modification –  By Steve Tracton – Critics of experimental Hurricane modification argue that:

…it may never be possible to distinguish between manmade and natural changes in a storm’s behavior, or to predict with high confidence the outcome of modification attempts, given the complexity and chaotic nature of atmospheric processes. The latter could lead to liability issues related to unintended consequences, critics say, such as storm damage in an area that might have been impacted less severely had a storm not been modified, or less rain in an area suffering from drought.” MORE

Assessing A New Approach to Tropical Cyclone Modification by Hygroscopic Smoke

In Krall and Cotton’s simulations, however, when pollution aerosols were swept into the storm core the storm actually intensified. Subsequently, as aerosol were scavenged before reaching the storm core, only convection in the outer rainbands were intensified, and the storm weakened, consistent with the working hypothesis.  More
