Conspiracy theorists’ favorite excuse is gone down the toilet. In an update to this story from last year about HAARP being closed, it’s not reopening.
The U.S. Air Force gave official notice to Congress Wednesday that it intends to dismantle the $300 million High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program in Gakona this summer.
The shutdown of HAARP, a project created by the late Sen. Ted Stevens when he wielded great control over the U.S. defense budget, will start after a final research experiment takes place in mid-June, the Air Force said in a letter to Congress Tuesday.
The University of Alaska has expressed interest in taking over the research site, which is off the Tok Cutoff in an area where black spruce was cleared a quarter-century ago for the Air Force backscatter radar project that was never completed. But the school has not volunteered to pay $5 million a year to run HAARP.
The HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) array consisted 180 antennas that directed energy into the ionosphere. Then the atmospheric layer was monitored to see what resulted. This work has concluded. Thus, the project has been terminated.
I suspect there is no shortage of replacement conspiracy/mind control/weather control ideas that people can come up with that will be even better. There are no limits when you can just make shit up and blame the government.
