The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) in Alaska harnesses radio waves to explore the Earth’s ionosphere and its impacts on communication and navigation systems. Equipped with 180 antenna masts, this remote facility was initially a U.S. military project but is now independently managed by the University of Alaska. Some conspiracy theorists contend that HAARP’s scientific endeavours are a facade, alleging that its true purpose is sinister: using electromagnetic signals to manipulate weather – triggering droughts, storms, floods, and hurricanes in hostile states – and/or to control the minds of people worldwide. Yet, these claims lack credibility; HAARP is not secretive enough for such covert operations, and its signals are far too weak to influence weather or human cognition.
