Well, can’t use HAARP as the ultimate excuse anymore. It’s closed.

The project to study the ionosphere was a favorite scapegoat for all things weird that occurred on earth. They will have to find a new bugaboo now. Lack of money has shuttered HAARP.

Crazy weather? You can’t blame HAARP anymore | Earth | EarthSky.

Conspiracy theorists concerned with intentional weather modification will have to find someone else to blame, because HAARP (the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) has closed.

The 35-acre ionospheric research facility in remote Gakona, Alaska – 200 miles north of Anchorage – shut down in early May 2013.

From the press release:

The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) — a subject of fascination for many hams and the target of conspiracy theorists and anti-government activists — has closed down. HAARP’s program manager, Dr James Keeney at Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico, told ARRL that the sprawling 35-acre ionospheric research facility in remote Gakona, Alaska, has been shuttered since early May.

“Currently the site is abandoned,” he said. “It comes down to money. We don’t have any.” Keeney said no one is on site, access roads are blocked, buildings are chained and the power turned off. HAARP’s website through the University of Alaska no longer is available; Keeney said the program can’t afford to pay for the service. “Everything is in secure mode,” he said, adding that it will stay that way at least for another 4 to 6 weeks. In the meantime a new prime contractor will be coming on board to run the government owned-contractor operated (GOCO) facility.

Of course “they” will say “that’s what they WANT you to think”. Yeah… I think it didn’t have anything to do with all the crazy shit attributed to it before. I suspect it might take a while for this most convenient of excuses to be purged from the forum threads. It will certainly not be long before another government project ascends to the place of honor as the sooper secret mind-weather control death machine.

As for actual weather modification? It looks like it didn’t work.

Many anomalous events were blamed on HAARP.

    Well, if I wanted this to be a mystery, my immediate response would be to note that it’s going to be run by another organization.

    They just transferred all the weather control equipment to an other location, man! They had to because people were starting to wake up, and beginning to realize what HARRPS true purpose was, man! 😉

    Well some rather extreme CT person (i hope it’s a poe troll) i’ve had the misfortune of clicking on YouTube (revmichelle something) seemed to have abandoned HAARP long time ago in favour of “Tesla Tech Array” satellites used in intergovernmental bad stuff.
    I’ll wager TTA satellite stories to be the next CT fad.

    Yeah that’s the OFFICIAL VERSION, sheeple. HAARP is probably still up and running in secret. Conclusive proof of this would be any future volcano, earthquake or bad weather anywhere on the planet. You just watch.

    They still have chem trails.

    The Alaska Dispatch suggests the facility closure is temporary, though the experts quoted seem to be speculating or out of the loop.


    The nutty Mort Amsel shows atypical skepticism about HAARP conspiracies: “I, however, take [the government’s] word for it. Be honest with yourself, we dont know what this does or can and can’t do. You think you know but you dont.” Commentors are not of the same opinion, of course.


    Nick Begich, insane HAARP monger, has nothing about the closure on his nutty site (that I could find).

    Rich: Someone is going to take that literally.

    I know. It’s terrible when you can’t make up something that’s too illogical and paranoid to be taken seriously by someone.

    “the sprawling 35-acre ionospheric research facility in remote Gakona, Alaska, has been shuttered since early May.”

    And here in the UK we’re having the warmest July since the dawn of time. Coincidence?

    One wonders how big a part this played
