In a recent correspondence with Dr. Bernard Eastlund (see
below), it appears that ground based weather control via
electromagnetic means have been surpassed by the newer technology
of Solar Power Satellite based systems which have been designed
for a power output of 1000 Megawatts. Even though this Solar
Power Satellite based system is speculative at best, I think we
can all see where this is going.
HAARP, as we have stated, does not appear to possess the
ability to alter the weather over disparate geographic locations,
and has only a minute ability to do anything locally
remember, radiation from the Sun strikes the atmosphere with a
power density of 1370 Watts per meter2 or 0.137 Watts
per cm2, a value known as the "solar
constant." The intensity of HAARP's HF signal in the
ionosphere will be less than 3 microwatts per cm2 at
its full power potential of 3.6 Megawatts tens of
thousands of times less than the Sun's natural electromagnetic
radiation reaching the earth. But, these new satellite systems,
if indeed they can generate the power proposed, certainly would
solve that problem. With a fleet of these satellites, it could be
conceivable that the weather over any geographic location could
be modified at will provided the system actually works.
Borderlands published a book related to this in 1995 called Secrets
of Cold War Technology: Project HAARP and Beyond.
Borderland Sciences has over the years done an extensive
observation of the effects of solar activity on the general
population with respect to temperment modification. It has been
empirically confirmed that SIDs (Sudden Ionospheric
Disturbances), and Solar Flux Density increases have the
particular effect of mania on the general populace,
while low periods tend to display a tendency toward depression.
We wonder what effects these new high power satellite systems
could have on prevailing psychological states. Although it does
not appear intentional, the ability to alter the moods of
populations is one probable side effect of such a modification
system. While this is not "mind control" per se, it
does open up some interesting possibilities. It remains to be
seen what the true potential of these satellites will be.
Many thanks to Dr. Bernard Eastlund for his openness on

I was wondering, since you say HAARP is a small version of what
is in your patent #4,686,605 - what, if any are the potential
effects of HAARP on the weather in its present form of DP, the
full DP, and the full IRI?
Our research would indicate that HAARP in all of its
developmental and complete stages will have no effect on the
weather, as it is just too small. I would appreciate any comments
you might have about this.
Reply from Dr. Eastlund reprinted with permission:
The plans for HAARP as I understand them are to go to 980 KW
this year, and ultimately about 3.6 MW. Significant direct
interactions with tropospheric weather patterns would require
power levels of 100 MW or more. However, even at 3.6 MW
significant experiments could be performed.
It has also been suggested that upper atmosphere winds (above
50KM) play a role in the motion of the lower altitude jet
stream.(J. R. Herman and R. A. Goldbert. sun, Weather and
Climate, National Aeronautics and Space Administration,
Washington, D. C. ) Balsley et al have studied the modulation of
the auroral electrojet and found correlation with modulation of
the zonal winds at 88 KM altitude. (B. B. Balsley, et al, 1983.

Coupling Processes Between the Ionosphere and the Middle
Atmosphere," Weather and Climate Responses to Solar
Variations, Colorado Associated University Press, Boulder,
The HAARP antenna as it is now configured modulates the auroral
electrojet to induce ELF waves and thus could have an effect on
the Zonal winds.
I recently have revisited the potential for electromagnetic beam
modification of weather in a series of papers written with the
support of the European Space Agency. They asked me to
investigate potential applications in which a Solar Power
Satellite was the source of energy. (They have been designed for
I have published two papers on the use of what I call the
"Thunderstorm Solar Power Satellite" and have done
numerical simulations of its use to prevent tornado formation in
mesocyclones. They are: "Systems Considerations of Weather
Modification Experiments Using High Power Electromagnetic
Radiation", Published in Proceedings of "Workshop on
Space Exploration and Resources Exploitation-Explospace 20-22

Last week I presented:
"Mesocyclone Diagnostic Requirements for the Thunderstorm
Solar Power Satellite Concept" Published in the Proceedings
of "The Second Conference on the Applications of Remote
Sensing and GIS for Disaster Management", Jan. 19-21, 1999,
Sponsored by NASA and FEMA.
Safety is emphasized in both papers.
