The program has been blamed for everything from global warming to natural disasters to mysterious humming noises in the sky.Name a natural phenomenon, and someone probably suspects HAARP of being behind it.Images from the HAARP camera show speckle-like artificial optical emissions superimposed on the background natural aurora only during frames when the transmitter was on. The goal of the program is to understand the physics of the ionosphere, which is constantly responding to influences from the sun.Solar flares can send solar particles racing toward Earth, occasionally disrupting communications and the electrical grid.In 2010, Venezuelan leader Huge Chavez claimed that HAARP or a program like it triggered the Haiti earthquake.For the record, the Haitian quake of 2010 was caused by the slippage of a previously unmapped fault along the border of the Caribbean and North American tectonic plates. Conspiracy theorists are abuzz about the news, given that HAARP (short for High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) has long been the center of wild speculation that the program is designed to control the weather — or worse. Air Force has notified Congress that it intends to shut down HAARP, a controversial Alaska-based research facility that studies an energetic and active region of the upper atmosphere.
The program has been funded by the Air Force, the Navy, the University of Alaska and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA.At the time, the HAARP program manager told reporters that the site was temporarily closed and locked, with only one DARPA project left to wrap up by early 2014.Your username is typically the first part of your @edu email address (everything that comes before the "@" symbol).We advocate practical solutions to fear and injustice, so governments protect the rights of all their people in line with international law.
