The Military's Pandora's Box
Dr. Nick Begich and Jeane Manning
article was prepared to provide a summary of the contents
of a book written in 1995 which describes an entirely
new class of weapons. The weapons and their effects are
described in the following pages. The United States Navy
and Air Force have joined with the University of Alaska,
Fairbanks, to build a prototype for a ground based "Star
Wars" weapon system located in the remote bush country
The individuals who are demanding answers about HAARP
are scattered around the planet. As well as bush dwellers
in Alaska, they include: a physician in Finland; a scientist
in Holland; an anti-nuclear protester in Australia; independent
physicists in the United States; a grandmother in Canada,
and countless others.
Unlike the protests of the 1960s the objections to HAARP
have been registered using the tools of the 1990s. From
the Internet, fax machines, syndicated talk radio and
a number of alternative print mediums the word is getting
out and people are waking up to this new intrusion by
an over zealous United States government.
The research team put together to gather the materials
which eventually found their way into the book never held
a formal meeting, never formed a formal organization.
Each person acted like a node on a planetary info-spirit-net
with one goal held by all -- to keep this controversial
new science in the public eye. The result of the team's
effort was a book which describes the science and the
political ramifications of this technology.
That book, Angels Don't Play this HAARP: Advances
in Tesla Technology, has 230 pages. This article
will only give the highlights. Despite the amount of research
(350 footnoted sources), at its heart it is a story about
ordinary people who took on an extraordinary challenge
in bringing their research forward.
Boils the Upper Atmosphere
HAARP will zap the upper atmosphere with a focused and
steerable electromagnetic beam. It is an advanced model
of an "ionospheric heater." (The ionosphere
is the electrically-charged sphere surrounding Earth's
upper atmosphere. It ranges between 40 to 60 miles above
the surface of the Earth.)
Put simply, the apparatus for HAARP is a reversal of a
radio telescope; antenna send out signals instead of receiving.
HAARP is the test run for a super-powerful radiowave-beaming
technology that lifts areas of the ionosphere by focusing
a beam and heating those areas. Electromagnetic waves
then bounce back onto earth and penetrate everything --
living and dead.
publicity gives the impression that the High-frequency
Active Auroral Research Program is mainly an academic
project with the goal of changing the ionosphere to improve
communications for our own good. However, other U.S. military
documents put it more clearly -- HAARP aims to learn how
to "exploit the ionosphere for Department of Defense
purposes." Communicating with submarines is only
one of those purposes.
Press releases and other information from the military
on HAARP continually downplay what it could do. Publicity
documents insist that the HAARP project is no different
than other ionospheric heaters operating safely throughout
the world in places such as Arecibo, Puerto Rico, Tromso,
Norway, and the former Soviet Union. However, a 1990 government
document indicates that the radio-frequency (RF) power
zap will drive the ionosphere to unnatural activities.
... at the highest HF powers available in the West,
the instabilities commonly studied are approaching their
maximum RF energy dissipative capability, beyond which
the plasma processes will 'runaway' until the next limiting
factor is reached."
If the military, in cooperation with the University of
Alaska Fairbanks, can show that this new ground-based
"Star Wars" technology is sound, they both win.
The military has a relatively-inexpensive defense shield
and the University can brag about the most dramatic geophysical
manipulation since atmospheric explosions of nuclear bombs.
After successful testing, they would have the military
megaprojects of the future and huge markets for Alaska's
North Slope natural gas.
Looking at the other patents which built on the work of
a Texas' physicist named Bernard Eastlund, it becomes
clearer how the military intends to use the HAARP transmitter.
It also makes governmental denials less believable. The
military knows how it intends to use this technology,
and has made it clear in their documents. The military
has deliberately misled the public, through sophisticated
word games, deceit and outright disinformation.
The military says the HAARP system could:
the military a tool to replace the electromagnetic
pulse effect of atmospheric thermonuclear devices
(still considered a viable option by the military
through at least 1986)
the huge Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) submarine communication
system operating in Michigan and Wisconsin with a
new and more compact technology
used to replace the over-the-horizon radar system
that was once planned for the current location of
HAARP, with a more flexible and accurate system
a way to wipe out communications over an extremely
large area, while keeping the military's own communications
a wide area earth-penetrating tomography which, if
combined with the computing abilities of EMASS and
Cray computers, would make it possible to verify many
parts of nuclear nonproliferation and peace agreements
Be a tool for geophysical probing to find oil, gas
and mineral deposits over a large area
used to detect incoming low-level planes and cruise
missiles, making other technologies obsolete
above abilities seem like a good idea to all who believe
in sound national defense, and to those concerned about
cost-cutting. However, the possible uses which the HAARP
records do not explain, and which can only be found in
Air Force, Army, Navy and other federal agency records,
are alarming. Moreover, effects from the reckless use
of these power levels in our natural shield -- the ionosphere
-- could be cataclysmic according to some scientists.
Two Alaskans put it bluntly. A founder of the NO HAARP
movement, Clare Zickuhr, says "The military is going
to give the ionosphere a big kick and see what happens."
The military failed to tell the public that they do not
know what exactly will happen, but a Penn State science
article brags about that uncertainty. Macho science? The
HAARP project uses the largest energy levels yet played
with by what Begich and Manning call "the big boys
with their new toys." HAARP is an experiment in the
sky, and experiments are done to find out something not
already known. Independent scientists told Begich and
Manning that a HAARP-type "skybuster" with its
unforeseen effects could be an act of global vandalism.
patents described below were the package of ideas which
were originally controlled by ARCO Power Technologies
Incorporated (APTI), a subsidiary of Atlantic Richfield
Company, one of the biggest oil companies in the world.
APTI was the contractor that built the HAARP facility.
ARCO sold this subsidiary, the patents and the second
phase construction contract to E-Systems in June 1994.
E-Systems is one of the biggest intelligence contractors
in the world -- doing work for the CIA, defense intelligence
organizations and others. $1.8 billion of their annual
sales are to these organizations, with $800 million for
black projects -- projects so secret that even the United
States Congress isn't told how the money is being spent.
E-Systems was bought out by Raytheon, which is one of
the largest defense contractors in the world. In 1994
Raytheon was listed as number forty-two on the Fortune
500 list of companies. Raytheon has thousands of patents,
some of which will be valuable in the HAARP project. The
twelve patents below are the backbone of the HAARP project,
and are now buried among the thousands of others held
in the name of Raytheon. Bernard J. Eastlund's U.S. Patent
# 4,686,605, "Method and Apparatus for Altering a
Region in the Earth's Atmosphere, Ionosphere; and/or Magnetosphere,"
was sealed for a year under a government Secrecy Order.
The Eastlund ionospheric heater was different; the radio
frequency (RF) radiation was concentrated and focused
to a point in the ionosphere. This difference throws an
unprecedented amount of energy into the ionosphere. The
Eastlund device would allow a concentration of one watt
per cubic centimeter, compared to others only able to
deliver about one millionth of one watt.
This huge difference could lift and change the ionosphere
in the ways necessary to create futuristic effects described
in the patent. According to the patent, the work of Nikola
Tesla in the early 1900's formed the basis of the research.
What would this technology be worth to ARCO, the owner
of the patents? They could make enormous profits by beaming
electrical power from a powerhouse in the gas fields to
the consumer without wires.
For a time, HAARP researchers could not prove that this
was one of the intended uses for HAARP. In April, 1995,
however, Begich found other patents, connected with a
"key personnel" list for APTI. Some of these
new APTI patents were indeed a wireless system for sending
electrical power. Eastlund's patent said the technology
can confuse or completely disrupt airplanes' and missiles'
sophisticated guidance systems. Further, this ability
to spray large areas of Earth with electromagnetic waves
of varying frequencies, and to control changes in those
waves, makes it possible to knock out communications on
land or sea as well as in the air.
The patent said:
this invention provides the ability to put unprecedented
amounts of power in the Earth's atmosphere at strategic
locations and to maintain the power injection level
particularly if random pulsing is employed, in a manner
far more precise and better controlled than heretofore
accomplished by the prior art, particularly by detonation
of nuclear devices of various yields at various altitudes...
is possible not only to interfere with third party communications
but to take advantage of one or more such beams to carry
out a communications network even though the rest of
the world's communications are disrupted. Put another
way, what is used to disrupt another's communications
can be employed by one knowledgeable of this invention
as a communication network at the same time."
large regions of the atmosphere could be lifted to an
unexpectedly high altitude so that missiles encounter
unexpected and unplanned drag forces with resultant
modification is possible by, for example, altering upper
atmosphere wind patterns by constructing one or more
plumes of atmospheric particles which will act as a
lens or focusing device.
... molecular modifications of the atmosphere can take
place so that positive environmental effects can be
achieved. Besides actually changing the molecular composition
of an atmospheric region, a particular molecule or molecules
can be chosen for increased presence. For example, ozone,
nitrogen, etc., concentrations in the atmosphere could
be artificially increased."
Begich found eleven other APTI Patents. They told how
to make "Nuclear-sized Explosions without Radiation,"
Power-beaming systems, over-the-horizon radar, detection
systems for missiles carrying nuclear warheads, electromagnetic
pulses previously produced by thermonuclear weapons and
other Star-Wars tricks. This cluster of patents underlay
the HAARP weapon system.
Related research by Begich and Manning uncovered bizarre
schemes. For example, Air Force documents revealed that
a system had been developed for manipulating and disturbing
human mental processes through pulsed radio-frequency
radiation (the stuff of HAARP) over large geographical
areas. The most telling material about this technology
came from writings of Zbigniew Brzezinski (former National
Security Advisory to U.S. President Carter) and J.F. MacDonald
(science advisor to U.S. President Johnson and a professor
of Geophysics at UCLA), as they wrote about use of power-beaming
transmitters for geophysical and environmental warfare.
The documents showed how these effects might be caused,
and the negative effects on human heath and thinking.
The mental-disruption possibilities for HAARP are the
most disturbing. More than 40 pages of the book, with
dozens of footnotes, chronicle the work of Harvard professors,
military planners and scientists as they plan and test
this use of the electromagnetic technology. For example,
one of the papers describing this use was from the International
Red Cross in Geneva. It even gave the frequency ranges
where these effects could occur -- the same ranges which
HAARP is capable of broadcasting.
The following statement was made more than twenty-five
years ago in a book by Brzezinski which he wrote while
a professor at Columbia University:
strategists are tempted to exploit research on the
brain and human behavior. Geophysicist Gordon J.F.
MacDonald, a specialist in problems of warfare, says
accurately-timed, artificially-excited electronic
strokes could lead to a pattern of oscillations that
produce relatively high power levels over certain
regions of the earth ... in this way one could develop
a system that would seriously impair the brain performance
of very large populations in selected regions over
an extended period"
... no matter how deeply disturbing the thought of
using the environment to manipulate behavior for national
advantages, to some, the technology permitting such
use will very probably develop within the next few
In 1966, MacDonald was a member of the President's Science
Advisory Committee and later a member of the President's
Council on Environmental Quality. He published papers
on the use of environmental control technologies for military
purposes. The most profound comment he made as a geophysicist
was, "the key to geophysical warfare is the identification
of environmental instabilities to which the addition of
a small amount of energy would release vastly greater
amounts of energy." While yesterday's geophysicists
predicted today's advances, are HAARP program managers
delivering on the vision?
The geophysicists recognized that adding energy to the
environmental soup could have large effects. However,
humankind has already added substantial amounts of electromagnetic
energy into our environment without understanding what
might constitute critical mass. The book by Begich and
Manning raises questions:
these additions been without effect, or is there a
cumulative amount beyond which irreparable damage
can be done?
HAARP another step in a journey from which we cannot
we about to embark on another energy experiment which
unleashes another set of demons from Pandora's box?
As early as 1970, Zbigniew Brzezinski predicted a "more
controlled and directed society" would gradually appear,
linked to technology. This society would be dominated
by an elite group which impresses voters by allegedly
superior scientific know-how. Angels Don't Play
This HAARP further quotes Brzezinski:
"Unhindered by the restraints of traditional liberal values,
this elite would not hesitate to achieve its political
ends by using the latest modern techniques for influencing
public behavior and keeping society under close surveillance
and control. Technical and scientific momentum would then
feed on the situation it exploits," Brzezinski predicted.
His forecasts proved accurate. Today, a number of new
tools for the "elite" are emerging, and the
temptation to use them increases steadily. The policies
to permit the tools to be used are already in place. How
could the United States be changed, bit by bit, into the
predicted highly-controlled technosociety? Among the "steppingstones"
Brzezinski expected were persisting social crises and
use of the mass media to gain the public's confidence.
In another document prepared by the government, the U.S.
Air Force claims: "The potential applications of
artificial electromagnetic fields are wide-ranging and
can be used in many military or quasi-military situations...
Some of these potential uses include dealing with terrorist
groups, crowd control, controlling breaches of security
at military installations, and antipersonnel techniques
in tactical warfare. In all of these cases the EM (electromagnetic)
systems would be used to produce mild to severe physiological
disruption or perceptual distortion or disorientation.
In addition, the ability of individuals to function could
be degraded to such a point that they would be combat
ineffective. Another advantage of electromagnetic systems
is that they can provide coverage over large areas with
a single system. They are silent and countermeasures to
them may be difficult to develop... One last area where
electromagnetic radiation may prove of some value is in
enhancing abilities of individuals for anomalous phenomena."
Do these comments point to uses already somewhat developed?
The author of the government report refers to an earlier
Air Force document about the uses of radio frequency radiation
in combat situations. (Here Begich and Manning note that
HAARP is the most versatile and the largest radio-frequency-radiation
transmitter in the world.)
The United States Congressional record deals with the
use of HAARP for penetrating the earth with signals bounced
off of the ionosphere. These signals are used to look
inside the planet to a depth of many kilometers in order
to locate underground munitions, minerals and tunnels.
The U.S. Senate set aside $15 million dollars in 1996
to develop this ability alone -- earth-penetrating-tomography.
The problem is that the frequency needed for earth-penetrating
radiation is within the frequency range most cited for
disruption of human mental functions. It may also have
profound effects on migration patterns of fish and wild
animals which rely on an undisturbed energy field to find
As if electromagnetic pulses in the sky and mental disruption
were not enough, T. Eastlund bragged that the super-powerful
ionospheric heater could control weather.
Begich and Manning brought to light government documents
indicating that the military has weather-control technology.
When HAARP is eventually built to its full power level,
it could create weather effects over entire hemispheres.
If one government experiments with the world's weather
patterns, what is done in one place will impact everyone
else on the planet. Angels Don't Play This HAARP
explains a principle behind some of Nikola Tesla's inventions
-- resonance -- which affect planetary systems.
Bubble of Electric Particles
Don't Play This HAARP includes interviews with
independent scientists such as Elizabeth Rauscher. She
has a Ph.D., a long and impressive career in high-energy
physics, and has been published in prestigious science
journals and books. Rauscher commented on HAARP. "You're
pumping tremendous energy into an extremely delicate molecular
configuration that comprises these multi-layers we call
"The ionosphere is prone to catalytic reactions,"
she explained, "if a small part is changed, a major
change in the ionosphere can happen."
In describing the ionosphere as a delicately balanced
system, Dr. Rauscher shared her mental picture of it --
a soap-bubble-like sphere surrounding Earth's atmosphere,
with movements swirling over the surface of the bubble.
If a big enough hole is punched through it, she predicts,
it could pop.
Slicing the Ionosphere
Daniel Winter, Ph.D., of Waynesville, North Carolina,
says, "HAARP high-frequency emissions can couple
with longwave (extremely-low-frequency, or ELF) pulses
the Earth grid uses to distribute information as vibrations
to synchronize dances of life in the biosphere."
Dan terms this geomagnetic action 'Earth's information
bloodstream,' and says it is likely that coupling of HAARP
HF (high-frequency) with natural ELF can cause unplanned,
unsuspected side effects.
David Yarrow of Albany, New York, is a researcher with
a background in electronics. He described possible interactions
of HAARP radiation with the ionosphere and Earth's magnetic
grid: "HAARP will not burn holes in the ionosphere.
That is a dangerous understatement of what HAARP's giant
gigawatt beam will do. Earth is spinning relative to thin
electric shells of the multilayer membrane of ion-o-speres
that absorb and shield Earth's surface from intense solar
radiation, including charged particle storms in solar
winds erupting from the sun. Earth's axial spin means
that HAARP -- in a burst lasting more than a few minutes
-- will slice through the ionosphere like a microwave
knife. This produces not a hole but a long tear -- an
Crudely Plucking the Strings
concept: As Earth rotates, HAARP will slice across the
geomagnetic flux, a donut-shaped spool of magnetic strings
-- like longitude meridians on maps.
HAARP may not 'cut' these strings in Gaia's magnetic mantle,
but will pulse each thread with harsh, out-of-harmony
high frequencies. These noisy impulses will vibrate geomagnetic
flux lines, sending vibrations all through the geomagnetic
image comes to mind of a spider on its web. An insect
lands, and the web's vibrations alert the spider to possible
prey. HAARP will be a man-made microwave finger poking
at the web, sending out confusing signals, if not tearing
holes in the threads. "
"Effects of this interference with symphonies of
Gaia's geomagnetic harp are unknown, and I suspect barely
thought of. Even if thought of, the intent (of HAARP)
is to learn to exploit any effects, not to play in tune
to global symphonies. "
Among other researchers quoted is Paul Schaefer of Kansas
City. His degree is in electrical engineering and he spent
four years building nuclear weapons. "But most of
the theories that we have been taught by scientists to
believe in seem to be falling apart," he says. He
talks about imbalances already caused by the industrial
and atomic age, especially by radiation of large numbers
of tiny, high-velocity particles "like very small
spinning tops" into our environment. The unnatural
level of motion of highly-energetic particles in the atmosphere
and in radiation belts surrounding Earth is the villain
in the weather disruptions, according to this model, which
describes an Earth discharging its buildup of heat, relieving
stress and regaining a balanced condition through earthquakes
and volcanic action.
might compare the abnormal energetic state of the Earth
and its atmosphere to a car battery which has become overcharged
with the normal flow of energy jammed up, resulting in
hot spots, electrical arcing, physical cracks and general
turbulence as the pent-up energy tries to find some place
In a second analogy, Schaefer says "Unless we desire
the death of our planet, we must end the production of
unstable particles which are generating the earth's fever.
A first priority to prevent this disaster would be to
shut down all nuclear power plants and end the testing
of atomic weapons, electronic warfare and 'Star Wars'."
Meanwhile, the military builds its biggest ionospheric
heater yet, to deliberately create more instabilities
in a huge plasma layer -- the ionosphere -- and to rev
up the energy level of charged particles.
Electronic Rain From The Sky
have published papers about electron precipitation from
the magnetosphere (the outer belts of charged particles
which stream toward Earth's magnetic poles) caused by
man-made very low frequency electromagnetic waves. "These
precipitated particles can produce secondary ionization,
emit X-rays, and cause significant perturbation in the
Two Stanford University radio scientists offer evidence
of what technology can do to affect the sky by making
waves on earth; they showed that very low frequency radio
waves can vibrate the magnetosphere and cause high-energy
particles to cascade into Earth's atmosphere. By turning
the signal on or off, they could stop the flow of energetic

Their work suggests that technicians could control global
weather by sending relatively small 'signals' into the
Van Allen belts (radiation belts around Earth). Thus Tesla's
resonance effects can control enormous energies by tiny
The Begich/ Manning book asks whether that knowledge will
be used by war-oriented or biosphere-oriented scientists.
The military has had about twenty years to work on weather
warfare methods, which it euphemistically calls weather
modification. For example, rainmaking technology was taken
for a few test rides in Vietnam. The U.S. Department of
Defense sampled lightning and hurricane manipulation studies
in Project Skyfire and Project Stormfury. And they looked
at some complicated technologies that would give big effects.
Angels Don't Play This HAARP cites an expert
who says the military studied both lasers and chemicals
which they figured could damage the ozone layer over an
enemy. Looking at ways to cause earthquakes, as well as
to detect them, was part of the project named Prime Argus,
decades ago. The money for that came from the Defense
Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA, now under the
acronym ARPA.) In 1994 the Air Force revealed its Spacecast
2020 master plan which includes weather control. Scientists
have experimented with weather control since the 1940's,
but Spacecast 2020 noted that "using environmental modification
techniques to destroy, damage or injure another state
are prohibited." Having said that, the Air Force claimed
that advances in technology "compels a reexamination of
this sensitive and potentially risky topic."
Years of Zapping the Sky?
As far back as 1958, the chief White House advisor on
weather modification, Captain Howard T. Orville, said
the U.S. defense department was studying "ways to
manipulate the charges of the earth and sky and so affect
the weather" by using an electronic beam to ionize
or de-ionize the atmosphere over a given area.
In 1966, Professor Gordon J. F. MacDonald was associate
director of the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary
Physics at the University of California, Los Angeles,
was a member of the President's Science Advisory Committee,
and later a member of the President's Council on Environmental
He published papers on the use of environmental-control
technologies for military purposes. MacDonald made a revealing
comment: "The key to geophysical warfare is the identification
of environmental instabilities to which the addition of
a small amount of energy would release vastly greater
amounts of energy. " World-recognized scientist MacDonald
had a number of ideas for using the environment as a weapon
system and he contributed to what was, at the time, the
dream of a futurist. When he wrote his chapter, "How
To Wreck The Environment," for the book Unless
Peace Comes, he was not kidding around. In it he
describes the use of weather manipulation, climate modification,
polar ice cap melting or destabilization, ozone depletion
techniques, earthquake engineering, ocean wave control
and brain wave manipulation using the planet's energy
He also said that these types of weapons would be developed
and, when used, would be virtually undetectable by their
victims. Is HAARP that weapon? The military's intention
to do environmental engineering is well documented, U.S.
Congress' subcommittee hearings on Oceans and International
Environment looked into military weather and climate modification
conducted in the early 1970's. "What emerged was
an awesome picture of far-ranging research and experimentation
by the Department of Defense into ways environmental tampering
could be used as a weapon," said another author cited
in Angles Don't Play This HAARP.
The revealed secrets surprised legislators. Would an inquiry
into the state of the art of electromagnetic manipulation
surprise lawmakers today? They may find out that technologies
developed out of the HAARP experiments in Alaska could
deliver on Gordon MacDonald's vision because leading-edge
scientists are describing global weather as not only air
pressure and thermal systems, but also as an electrical
Input - Big Effect
zaps the ionosphere where it is relatively unstable. A
point to remember is that the ionosphere is an active
electrical shield protecting the planet from the constant
bombardment of high-energy particles from space. This
conducting plasma, along with Earth's magnetic field,
traps the electrical plasma of space and holds it back
from going directly to the earth's surface, says Charles
Yost of Dynamic Systems, Leicester, North Carolina. "If
the ionosphere is greatly disturbed, the atmosphere below
is subsequently disturbed."
scientist interviewed said there is a super-powerful electrical
connection between the ionosphere and the part of the
atmosphere where our weather comes onstage, the lower
One man-made electrical effect -- power line harmonic
resonance -- causes fallout of charged particles from
the Van Allen (radiation) belts, and the falling ions
cause ice crystals (which precipitate rain clouds). What
about HAARP? Energy blasted upward from an ionospheric
heater is not much compared to the total in the ionosphere,
but HAARP documents admit that thousandfold-greater amounts
of energy can be released in the ionosphere than injected.
As with MacDonald's "key to geophysical warfare," "nonlinear"
effects (described in the literature about the ionospheric
heater) mean small input and large output. Astrophysicist
Adam Trombly told Manning that an acupuncture model is
one way to look at the possible effect of multi-gigawatt
pulsing of the ionosphere. If HAARP hits certain points,
those parts of the ionosphere could react in surprising
Smaller ionospheric heaters such as the one at Arecibo
are underneath relatively placid regions of the ionosphere,
compared to the dynamic movements nearer Earth's magnetic
poles. That adds another uncertainty to HAARP -- the unpredictable
and lively upper atmosphere near the North Pole.
experimenters do not impress commonsense Alaskans such
as Barbara Zickuhr, who says "They're like boys playing
with a sharp stick, finding a sleeping bear and poking
it in the butt to see what's going to happen."
Could They Short-Circuit Earth?
as a spherical electrical system is a fairly well-accepted
model. However, those experimenters who want to make unnatural
power connections between parts of this system might not
be thinking of possible consequences. Electrical motors
and generators can be caused to wobble when their circuits
are affected. Could human activities cause a significant
change in a planet's electrical circuit or electrical
field? A paper in the respected journal Science deals
with manmade ionization from radioactive material, but
perhaps it could also be studied with HAARP-type skybusters
example, while changes in the earth's electric field resulting
from a solar flare modulating conductivity may have only
a barely detectable effect on meteorology, the situation
may be different in regard to electric field changes caused
by manmade ionization... " Meteorology, of course,
is the study of the atmosphere and weather. ionization
is what happens when a higher level of power is zapped
into atoms and knocks electrons off the atoms. The resulting
charged particles are the stuff of HAARP. "One look
at the weather should tell us that we are on the wrong
path," says Paul Schaefer, commenting on HAARP-type
Don't Play This HAARP: Advances in Tesla Technology
is about the military's plan to manipulate that which
belongs to the world -- the ionosphere. The arrogance
of the United States government in this is not without
Atmospheric nuclear tests had similar goals. More recently,
China and France put their people's money to destructive
use in underground nuclear tests. It was recently reported
that the US government spent $3 trillion dollars on its
nuclear program since its beginnings in the 1940's. What
new breakthroughs in life science could have been made
with all the money spent on death?
Begich, Manning, Roderick and others believe that democracies
need to be founded on openness, rather than the secrecy
which surrounds so much military science. Knowledge used
in developing revolutionary weapons could be used for
healing and helping mankind. Because they are used in
new weapons, discoveries are classified and suppressed.
When they do appear in the work of other independent scientists,
the new ideas are often frustrated or ridiculed, while
military research laboratories continue to build their
new machines for the killing fields.
However, the book by Manning and Begich gives hope that
the military industrial academic bureaucratic Goliath
can be affected by the combined power of determined individuals
and the alternative press. Becoming informed is the first
step to empowerment.
