HAARP terminated

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.

Air Force prepares to dismantle HAARP ahead of summer shutdown | State News | ADN.com.

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.

Goodnight HAARP.

    Surely the conspiracy theorists are CHEERING because “finally, “we” made it [officially, anyway] stop!”

    Onward to stopping Chemtrails!

    The conspiracy theorists will never believe it, & continue to insist it’s the origin of everything, & that it’s just gone underground. It simply makes me think of an insipid Irish lager Harp.

    It will have gone to heaven, to be played by the aangels.

    They’ll have to find something else to haarp on about now.

    Maybe they have contacted aliens, & it’s been exterminated.

    According to the theorists the HAARP went “black” years ago and is well on it’s way to becoming a super weapon, so closing it down is just a cover story.

    “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.”

    $300 million just to see what would happen? No wonder we’re in debt up to our elbows.

    I’ll say one thing for Ted Stevens, he brought home the bacon.

    Now, now. It’s amazing how many scientific breakthroughs started with “Hmm, I wonder what would happen if . . .”

    They probably had a bit more to go on than that, but if you’re hoping to come up with a militarily useful technology(like a better version of the radar) you’re probably not going to explain in full the mechanisms you’re exploring.

    The Alaska based HAARP is closing; the Puerto Rico HAARP remains viable. Also the European HAARP in Norway and the Russian HAARP are active…there are also portable units. Ignorance does not change reality.

    I don’t get what you are referring to in the last sentence “Ignorance does not change reality.” Do you suggest these are weapons and not studies? Also, can you provide a reference for what the other locations are doing?

    It is sort of hard to believe the study is stopping, because they have reached any sort of conclusion, when there are many of the same projects still going on. More than likely its just a statement made to justify spending that much money for the amount of time spent. Now its just another cutback. But, to believe its some type of “weather dominator” type divice is pretty unrealistic. Its taken humans a long time to effect the weather by accident. And that’s with the hole species doing its best at it through greenhouse gases. The amount of energy it would take to theoretically have some effect on weather is almost unimaginable. It takes a hole star and a hole planet just to make weather naturally. And we are a long loooong way from harnessing that type of power. Let alone controlling it. Think about it like this. One small thunder storm has more energy than the largest nuclear reactor at maximum output everyday for a hundred years. Humans can do alot, but we damn sure don’t deserve that type of credit. Reasoning and logic are my salvation. Thus sayeth the Justin. Aw men

    P.s. my reasoning is based on personal observations. My logic is dictated by emotion. Thus I am human. And usually wrong

    You know, the conspiracy “theorists” are just gonna claim this is a coverup, and that the hurricane/blizzard/drought/earthquake machine is still running.

    By the by, I’m new to your sight, and I gotta say it’s pretty awesome!

    Because a Grand Unified Conspiracy Theory is a totally closed system.
    Any evidence against The Conspiracy is disinformation planted by The Conspiracy.
    Lack of evidence for The Conspiracy is PROOF The Conspiracy silenced it.
    Any and all who doubt the existence of The Conspiracy have PROVEN themselves to be part of The Conspiracy.

    OK so they have stopped firing lots of energy at the ionossphere. Are they going to tell us what (if anything) they learned from it?
