A review of Angels Don't Play This HAARP by Dr. Nick Begich
and Jeane Manning. Reprinted from Nexus, December 1995 - January
Technonet, the protest form of the 1990's: picketing
on the information highways. For example, a fast-growing assortment
of men and women around the world are using the Internet (started
by the U.S. military for information transfer and exchange that
would never be interfered with) to draw attention to a questionable
military project in Alaska. These Internetting, e-mailing, faxing
folks are blowing holes in the U.S. Department of Defense secrecy
wall by using the government's own system.
The printed-word part of the protest started when Dennis Specht, an
antinuclear activist then living in Alaska, sent a news item to Nexus on the topic of HAARP — the
High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program. Then, an Alaskan
political activist and science researcher in Anchorage, Nick
Begich, networked with Patrick
and Gael Crystal Flanagan, who are self-described "technomonks"
living in Sedona, Arizona, and was told to check out that same
Australian-based magazine. Begich was surprised to see an item from
his hometown in Nexus and immediately headed to the local library
to dig out the documents cited in the article.
That research led to articles and the book Angels Don't Play
this HAARP: Advances in Tesla Technology, which is 230 pages
of detailed information on this intrusive project. This article
will only give highlights. Despite the amount of research (350
footnotes), at its heart it is a story about ordinary people who
took on an extraordinary challenge.
HAARP 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 about 40 to
600 miles above Earth's surface.)
Put simply, the apparatus for HAARP is a reversal of a radio
telescope: antennas send out signals instead of receiving. HAARP is
the test run for a superpowerful radio-wave 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. HAARP publicity gives
the impression that the High-frequency Active Auroral Research
Project 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
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 from other ionospheric
heaters operating safely throughout the world in places such as Arecibo, Puerto Rico;
Tromsø, 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 'run away' 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 build on the work of a Texas
Bernard Eastlund, it becomes clearer how the military intends
to use the HAARP
transmitter. It also makes government 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
The military says the HAARP system could:
give the military a tool to replace the electromagnetic pulse
effect of atmospheric thermonuclear devices (still considered a
viable option through at least 1986);
replace the huge Extremely
Low Frequency (ELF) submarine communication system operating
in Michigan and Wisconsin with a new and more compact technology;
be 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;
provide a way to
wipe out communications over an extremely large area, while
keeping the military's own communications systems working;
provide 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; and
be used to detect incoming low-level planes and cruise missiles,
making other technologies obsolete.
The 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 U.S. 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
One Alaskan puts 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
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." It is an experiment on 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
The 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
E-Systems is one of the biggest intelligence contractors in the
world, doing work for the CIA, defense intelligence organizations
and others. Eighteen billion dollars 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 42 on the Fortune 500 list of companies. Raytheon has
thousands of patents, some of which will be valuable in the HAARP
project. Twelve patents are the backbone of the HAARP project, and
are now buried among the thousands of others held in the name of
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, without wires, from a powerhouse in the gas fields to the
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
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
"Thus, 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. . . .
"It 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
"Large regions of the atmosphere could be lifted to an unexpectedly
high altitude so that missiles encounter unexpected and unplanned
drag forces with resultant destruction. . . .
"Weather 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, and other 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 underlays the HAARP weapon system.
Related research by Begich and Manning uncovered bizarre schemes.
For example, U.S. Air Force documents revealed that a system had
been developed for manipulating and disrupting 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 Advisor to
President Carter) and J.F. MacDonald (Science Advisor to 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 health 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 25 years ago in a book
which Brzezinski wrote while a professor at Columbia University:
"Political strategists are tempted to exploit research on the
brain and human behavior. Geophysicist Gordon J. F. MacDonald
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 decades."
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. Have these additions been
without effect, or is there a cumulative amount beyond which
irreparable damage can be done? Is HAARP another step in a journey
from which we cannot turn back? Are we about to embark on another
energy experiment which unleashes another set of demons from
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
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 "stepping
stones" Brzezinski expected were persisting social crises and use
of the mass media to gain the public's confidence.
another document prepared by the government, the U.S. Air Force
"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 transmitter in the
The United States Congressional Record deals with the use of HAARP
for penetrating the Earth with signals bounced off 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. For 1996, the U.S. Senate has set aside $15 million to
develop this ability alone: Earth-penetration tomography.
The problem is that the frequency needed for Earth-penetrating
radiations 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 their routes.
As if electromagnetic
pulses in the sky and mental disruption were not enough,
Eastlund bragged that the superpowerful ionospheric heater could
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 affects planetary systems.
Bubble of Electric Particles
Angels 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
multilayers we call the ionosphere."
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 the 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
Physicist Daniel Winter, Ph.D., of Waynesville, North Carolina,
says HAARP high-frequency emissions can couple with the long-wave
(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 (extremely low-frequency) 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
radiations 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
multi layer membrane of ionospheres 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 incision."
Crudely Plucking the Strings
"Second concept: As Earth rotates, HAARP will slice across
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 web.
"The 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. He says, "But most of the theories that
we have been taught by scientists to believe in seem to be falling
Schaefer 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 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: "One 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 someplace to
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,
deliberately to create more instabilities in a huge plasma layer
— the ionosphere — and to rev up the energy level of
Electronic Rain from the Sky
The military has published papers about electron precipitation from
the magnetosphere (the outer belts of charged particles which
stream toward Earth's magnetic poles) caused by manmade
very-low-frequency electromagnetic waves: "These precipitated
particles can produce secondary ionization, emit x rays, and cause
significant perturbation in the lower ionosphere.
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 the
Earth's atmosphere. By turning the signal on or off, they could
stop the flow of energetic particles.
Avalanches of energy dislodged by such radio waves could hit us
hard. [The Stanford researchers'] work suggests that technicians
could control global weather by sending relatively small "signals"
into the Van Allen belt (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 20 years to work on weather warfare
methods, which it euphemistically calls weather modification. For
example, rain making 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
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 U.S. 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 [is] prohibited." Having
said that, the Air Force claimed that technological advance
"compels a reexamination of this sensitive and potentially risky
Forty Years of Zapping the Sky?
As far back as 1958, the chief White House adviser on weather
modification, Captain Howard T. Orville, said the U.S. Department
of Defense 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 deionize 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 Quality. 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
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 brainwave manipulation using
the planet's energy fields. 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 Angels Don't Play This
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 system.
Small Input, Big Effect
HAARP 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
Another scientist interviewed said there is a superpowerful
electrical connection between the ionosphere and the part of the
atmosphere where our weather comes on stage: the lower atmosphere.
One manmade 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
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
Astrophysicist Adam Trombly told Manning that an acupuncture model
is one way to look at the possible effect of multigigawatt pulsing
of the ionosphere. If HAARP hits certain points, those parts of the
ionosphere could react in surprising ways.
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.
HAARP experimenters do not impress common sense 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 the Earth?
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 man-made ionization from radioactive
materials, but perhaps it could also be studied with HAARP-type
skybusters in mind: "For 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 man-made 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. Paul Schaefer, commenting
on HAARP-type technologies, says, "One look at the weather should
tell us that we are on the wrong path."
Angels 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 precedent.
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 U.S.
government had spent $3 trillion 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 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
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.
