Space-Based Weather Control -
The "Thunderstorm
Solar Power Satellite"
By Michael Theroux
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. 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 - but the new satellite systems 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.

Many thanks to Dr. Bernard Eastlund for his openness on the subject.

<< Dr. Eastlund,
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.

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. "On the Potential of Radar Observations for Studying Coupling Processes Between the Ionosphere and the Middle Atmosphere," Weather and Climate Responses to Solar Variations, Colorado Associated University Press, Boulder, Colorado. USA)
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 1,000 MW)
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 October, 1998, Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy.
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.
