I’m glad Herald columnist Tracey Barnett mentioned chemtrails and HAARP in her recent piece entitled Time to revisit small stories posing big questions because they’re subjects I’ve been fascinated with since my visit to Spain in June. My flight landed in Barcelona and upon leaving the terminal building and then throughout the car journey into the city I was mesmerised by the dozens of white trails criss-crossing against the big blue sky.
Unlike aircraft condensation trails, these lines didn’t dissipate and disappear. They seemed to be almost permanent fixtures – not moving, changing or fading in any way. My mind went back to when I first became aware of claims that chemtrails with a purpose were being laid across our skies.
While seeking online information about Christchurch’s February earthquake I’d happened upon a site that blamed HAARP for creating the earthquake.
While the hypothesis had all the hallmarks of a classic conspiracy theory it turns out that the HAARP project actually does exist.
HAARP stands for High (Frequency) Active Auroral Research Programme and it’s a project funded, according to Wikipedia, by various agencies including the US Airforce, US Navy and University of Alaska. HAARP’s website says it operates from an Alaska-based facility dedicated to studying “the properties and behaviour of the ionosphere, with particular emphasis on being able to understand and use it to enhance communications and surveillance systems for both civilian and defence purposes”.
It involves an “Ionospheric Research Instrument (IRI), a high power transmitter facility operating in the High Frequency range. The IRI will be used to temporarily excite a limited area of the ionosphere for scientific study”. And the ionosphere, in case you were wondering, is the “layer of the earth’s atmosphere” that “begins approximately 30 miles above the surface and extends upward to approximately 620 miles”. Got all that? No, nor have I really. Seventh form physics was such a long time ago.
