Moscow & Iran Blame Alaska HAARP Project for Crop Loss
The HAARP project in Alaska, the subject of many conspiracy theories, is being blamed by some in Moscow & Iran for the failure of the wheat crop and the smoke that has been choking the city in recent weeks.
The Russian government said it will suspend wheat exports until December because of the severe drought that has hit much of the country.
“Moscow’s tabloid press has even speculated that the United States orchestrated the heatwave in order to favor its own grain exporters by blasting Russia with harmful rays from a research station in Alaska,” the Guardian newspaper of London reports.
But the paranoia goes beyond the comments of some newspaper editors.
Andrei Areshev, the deputy director of the Strategic Culture Foundation, said the real purpose of the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Project in Alaska is to build a weapon “in order to destabilize environmental and agricultural systems in local countries.”
“At the moment, climate weapons may be reaching their target capacity and may be used to provoke droughts, erase crops and induce various anomalous phenomena in certain countries,” he wrote in an article published throughout Russia, according to a news report on the Radio Free Europe Radio Liberty website.
“The article has been carried by publications throughout Russia, including International Affairs, a journal published by the Foreign Ministry and by the state-owned news agency RIA Novosti,” the RFE/RL news story stated.
As far as weather control goes, HAARP states on its website that its transmitter and array of 180 antennas has no impact on that part of the atmosphere.
“Transmitted energy in the frequency ranges that will be used by HAARP is not absorbed in either the troposphere or the stratosphere — the two levels of the atmosphere that produce the Earth’s weather,” HAARP states. “Electromagnetic interactions only occur in the near-vacuum of the rarefied region above about 70 km known as the ionosphere.”
Russia isnt alone placing blame on the United States HAARP project. Iran has also recently blamed the U.S. HAARP project for the recent heat wave permeating the country this summer.
Othana Zuch, an Air Force spokesperson said HAARP is scheduled to be handed over on August 11th to the University of Alaska,. A ceremony for the handover is also scheduled for later this month.
That agreement allows access for two years, which will provide the university and the Air Force time to negotiate an agreement regarding the transfer of the land.”
They say the facility has been dormant this summer, and don’t expect it to be operational until next spring, because of Alaska’s harsh winter. Russia and Italy on the other hand don’t beleive a word of that.
