Just when I knew the average person was not the cause of man-made global warming, I discover that there just might be something to this ideology that I never thought about or understood.
What IF the carbon footprint that Crap and Trade is trying to sell to the public, is really nothing more than another way to TAX and / or Control the average person, in order to pay for the WRONG done by the government Elitist experiments taking place in SEVERAL countries?
What IF, Government experiments are the REAL cause of the crazy weather patterns we have been seeing all over the world lately? What IF, Record High Temps, record low temps, Floods, Fires, Earth quakes, the changing jet stream-El Nino, El Nina, the more frequent Hurricanes, Volcanic Eruptions, could all be linked and contributed to these man-made secret government experiments?
Maybe they think if they blame the average person, it will cause a distraction of what/who is really doing the damage to our world? All I can say is those humans experimenting at playing God without being Divine, a terrible price will be paid at some point on the balance of nature and the sooner man-kind figures this out, the better off and the safer the world will be.

Ionospheric Heating Facitilies
HAARP—The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program is an ionospheric research program jointly funded by the US Air Force, the US Navy, the University of Alaska and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Its purpose is to analyze the ionosphere and investigate the potential for developing ionospheric weapons technology for weather modification and surveillance purposes (such as missile detection). The HAARP program operates a major Arctic facility, known as the HAARP Research Station, on an Air Force owned site near Gakona, Alaska.
To enable scientists to develop techniques to mitigate these effects in order to improve the reliability and/or performance of communication and navigation systems, which would have a wide range of applications in both the civilian and military sectors, such as an increase in the accuracy of GPS navigation, and advancements in underwater and underground research and applications. This may lead to improved methods for submarine communication and the ability to remotely sense the mineral content of the terrestrial subsurface, among other things. One application would be to map out the underground complexes of countries such as Iran and North Korea. The current facility lacks the range to reach these countries, but the research could be used to develop a mobile platform.
HIPAS —(HIgh Power Auroral Stimulation) Observatory is an ionospheric heater, which can radiate 70 MW ERP at either 2.85 MHz or 4.53 MHz. located 30 miles Northeast of Fairbanks, Alaska, in the small community of Two Rivers. It is located at: 64° 52’ 19″ N latitude and 146° 50’ 33″ W longitude and operates year-round. The HIPAS Observatory is operated by the UCLA plasma physics laboratory.
The HIPAS facility is engaged in the study of the ionosphere through the use of high power radio transmission as well as a LIDAR (LIght Detection And Ranging ) instrument. The facility is home to several projects with some interesting equipment, including:
- A plasma torch, used for experiments in hazardous waste disposal
- A 2.8 meter liquid mirror telescope, which uses a spinning bowl of mercury to form the mirror, used for laser experiments.
- An array of antennae which are used for heating the ionosphere.
Some of the research conducted at HIPAS is similar to the controversial HAARP project, and so the staff of the facility sometimes have to answer the same questions from the public. The facility has “reportedly” been shut down and much of the equipment sold off as surplus during the Spring of 2010.
Arecibo Observatory— is a radio telescope located close to the city of Arecibo in Puerto Rico. (Though not on US soil the facility is “owned and financed by the USA—kinda makes ya wonder about WHY some want to add this country as a new state of the USA–lol) It is operated by Cornell University under cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation. The observatory works as the National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center (NAIC) although both names are officially used to refer to it. NAIC more properly refers to the organization that runs both the observatory and associated offices at Cornell University.
The observatory’s 305 m (1,001 ft) radio telescope is the largest single-aperture telescope (cf. multiple aperture telescope) ever constructed. It carries out three major areas of research: radio astronomy, aeronomy (using both the 305 m telescope and the observatory’s lidar facility), and radar astronomy observations of solar system objects. Usage of the telescope is gained by submitting proposals to the observatory, which are evaluated by an independent board of referees.
The Arecibo telescope is distinguished by its enormous size: the main collecting dish is 305 m (1,001 ft) in diameter, constructed inside the depression left by a karst sinkhole. According to the blueprint published in the observatory’s guidebook, the dish is actually 848.7 feet across, therefore, the oft-published 1,000-foot dimension is apparently along the spherical curve of the dish. The dish is the largest curved focusing dish on Earth, giving Arecibo the largest electromagnetic-wave-gathering capacity. The Arecibo telescope’s dish surface is made of 38,778 perforated aluminum panels, each measuring about 1 m by 2 m (3 ft by 6 ft, 1 yd by 2 yd), supported by a mesh of steel cables.
The telescope has three radar transmitters, with effective isotropic radiated powers of 20TW at 2380 MHz, 2.5TW (pulse peak) at 430 MHz, and 300MW at 47 MHz.
Not sure HOW it got here, but here it is nonetheless and it also received “Stimulus Money”: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Register_of_Historic_Places
Note: Maybe this facility being in Puerto Rico also explains the recent push to make it a new US state? Hmmm….???
The Poker Flat Research Range (PFRR) is a launch facility and rocket range for sounding rockets in the U.S. state of Alaska, owned and operated by the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) Geophysical Institute since 1968. The world’s largest land-based rocket range, it is situated on a 5,132-acre (20.77 km2) site located approximately 30 miles (50 km) northeast of Fairbanks and is operated under contract to the NASA Wallops Flight Facility. Since its inception PFRR has been closely aligned and funded by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency and its predecessor, the Defense Nuclear Agency (DNA). Other range users include the United States Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), the Air Force Geophysics Lab (AFGL) and a number of Universities and research laboratories. More than 1,700 launches have been conducted at the range to study the Earth’s atmosphere and the interaction between the atmosphere and the space environment . Areas studied at PFRR include the aurora, plasma physics, the ozone layer, solar proton events, Earth’s magnetic field, and ultraviolet radiation.
History of the PFRR originated from University of Alaska auroral research in the 1920s. Sounding rockets were first used for this in 1946. In 1968 the UAF Geophysical Institute leased the land that became the PFRR from the state of Alaska, and the range’s facilities were initially completed in 1972 with leadership and vision from Dr. T. Neil Davis. Neil Davis asked Neal Brown to be PFRR’s first supervisor and Brown directed the facility from 1971-1989. Construction of new facilities was undertaken in the 1990s with a $30 million grant provided by Congress. Refurbishment of older facilities is an ongoing project
Support facilities at Poker Flat Research Range include five launch pads, including two optimized for severe weather operations capable of handling rockets weighing up to 35,000 pounds (16,000 kg). Launches have attained an apogee of up to 930 miles (1,500 km) and impact on the Arctic ice shelf over 1,100 miles (1,800 km) downrange. Range facilities include an administrative facility, a blockhouse, several rocket assembly buildings, a 2-story science observatory, and a payload assembly building. Three S band antennas are used to collect telemetry, and a C band radar is used for tracking rocket payloads in-flight.
Poker Flat’s scope of activities is ever changing with the recent addition of SRI’s PFISR (Poker Flat Incoherent Scatter Radar) phased array antenna and the recent purchase of several Insitu UAV/UAS (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle/Unmanned Aerial System).
The Alaska Ground Station (AGS) together with the Honeywell Datalynx PF1 supports PFRR operations of many NASA and other nation’s spacecraft including Aqua, Aura, Terra, and Landsat 7 with S band and X band services. PF1 is part of the Earth Observing System Polar Ground Network (EPGN), along with the Alaska Ground Station (AGS). Other ground stations in the EPGN include the Svalbard Ground Station (SGS), the Kongsberg-Lockheed Martin ground station (SKS), and the Svalsat ground station (SG3) in Norway.

Ionospheric Heating Facilities — Around the World
EISCAT —is an acronym for the European Incoherent Scatter Scientific Association. It operates three incoherent scatter radar systems, at 224 MHz, 931 MHz in Northern Scandinavia and one at 500 MHz on Svalbard, used to study the interaction between the Sun and the Earth as revealed by disturbances in the ionosphere and magnetosphere. At the Ramfjordmoen facility (near Tromsø, Norway) it also operates an ionospheric heater facility, similar to HAARP. Additional receiver stations are located in Sodankylä, Finland, and Kiruna, Sweden. The EISCAT Headquarters are also located in Kiruna.
EISCAT is funded and operated by research institutes and research councils of Norway, Sweden, Finland, Japan, China, the United Kingdom and Germany.
In 1973 the EISCAT proposal – which was originally planned for France, Germany and the three Nordic countries seemed moribund. Then a Welshman, Granville Beynon became involved and by 1975 the agreement was signed, with the UK as a member. The proposal for UK membership had originally been turned down by the appropriate SRC committee. Beynon, however, persuaded the Board to reverse the decision of the committee and as a result of his efforts hundreds of European scientists have had the opportunity to use the world’s most advanced ionospheric radar.
Sura Ionospheric Heating Facility— located near the small town of Vasilsursk about 100 km eastward from Nizhniy Novgorod in Russia, is a laboratory for ionosphere research. Sura is capable of radiating about 190 MW, effective radiated power (ERP) on short waves. This facility is operated by the radiophysical research institute NIRFI in Nizhny Novgorod. The Sura facility was commissioned in 1981. Using this facility, Russian researchers studied the behaviour of the ionosphere and the effect of generation of low-frequency emission on modulation of ionosphere current. In the beginning, the Soviet Defense Department mostly footed the bill. The American HAARP ionospheric heater is similar to the Sura facility. The HAARP project began in 1993.
CERN—The acronym CERN originally stood, in French, for Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire (European Council for Nuclear Research) is the world’s largest particle physics laboratory, situated in the northwest suburbs of Geneva on the Franco–Swiss border (46°14′3″N 6°3′19″E / 46.23417°N 6.05528°E / 46.23417; 6.05528), established in 1954. The organization has twenty European member states, and is currently the workplace of approximately 2,600 full-time employees, as well as some 7,931 scientists and engineers (representing 580 universities and research facilities and 80 nationalities).
CERN’s main function is to provide the particle accelerators and other infrastructure needed for high-energy physics research. Numerous experiments have been constructed at CERN by international collaborations to make use of them. It is also noted for being the birthplace of the World Wide Web. The main site at Meyrin also has a large computer centre containing very powerful data processing facilities primarily for experimental data analysis, and because of the need to make them available to researchers elsewhere, has historically been (and continues to be) a major wide area networking hub.
