US Air Force preparing to dismantle HAARP

The controversial project is to be completely dismantled after it is shut down at the end of the summer.
Initially established back in 1993, HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) has been the subject of conspiracy theories for years.

The project's official goals are to analyze the Earth's ionosphere and to investigate the possibilities for ionospheric enhancement technology, but now after more than three decades of experiments its funds have finally run dry with a shut down date scheduled for later this year.

"We're moving on to other ways of managing the ionosphere, which the HAARP was really designed to do," said David Walker of the US Air Force. "To inject energy into the ionosphere to be able to actually control it. But that work has been completed."

With a budget of more than $290 and the capacity to direct energy straight in to the ionosphere, HAARP has acquired something of a reputation among conspiracy theorists. Some believe that the project is capable of controlling people's minds or manipulating the weather, while others accuse the government of using it to produce tornadoes and earthquakes.

"With all the other issues and problems and challenges facing the department at this time, we just don't see that that investment, over a long-term period, is where we would prioritize our investment," said Alan Shaffer, assistant secretary of defense for research and engineering.

So it's not for the sake of scientific research, it's for the sake of militaristic tests? It would be for scientific research, assuming the claim is actually true. Whether or not the military derives any use from it is as irrelevant as whether or not civilians derive any use from it. Self-evident - not really. If the purpose is militaristic drive, that purpose is bullcrap and people shouldn't allow the USA to build what they want and where they please. Building a facility with a specific environmental research tool that mirrors an existing facility with the same tool for researching the enviro... [More]

There was a small one 150-200 km from Camp Bondsteel. Cape Bondsteel is a US military base in Kosovo, placed near to the city of Ferizaj. There is no point within Kosovo that`s in a distance of more than 100km from Ferizaj. Please advise the location where the supposed, how do you named it, "mini-HAARP" facility you are talking about is located, to back your claim given. The petition was held to remove it and around 13k signatures were written There are a various number of petitions activ on various CT forum pages. Please provide informations which petition you are talking about in relation to... [More]

Why do I suspect that you probably won't get any answers?

Why do I suspect that you probably won't get any answers? Anyhow I`m sure that the answers will not give any kind of proof for HAARP or "mini-HAARP" facilities within a radius of 150-200km around Ferizaj, build with the aim to influence weather and the upper atmosphere. I expect some counter questions that are not related to the issue and maybe some links to other NewAge/esotericism/CT/astrology sources and/or sources not read/understood by N.

It was never built to Tesla's standard in the first place. I do hope they try better next time.

What?! Could you please elaborate on that? Cheers, Badeskov Of course not. He or she has no idea what HAARP was nor what "Tesla's standards" might be.

Of course not. He or she has no idea what HAARP was nor what "Tesla's standards" might be. Sadly, that was very obvious from the post :-/ Cheers, Badeskov
