Research center or weather weapon? US military is shutting down HAARP

Adepts of conspiracy theories might well take a deep breath: the HAARP program could be dismantled as soon as this summer, so from now on a tornado destroying your house will be a mere whirlwind, not a DARPA prank. Or will it?

The Air Force is said to be getting ready to wave their last good-bye to the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), the Anchorage Daily News reports. Unlike last year’s rumors about the project’s demise, this time it appears to be for real.

“We’re moving on to other ways of managing the ionosphere, which the HAARP was really designed to do,” David Walker has recently told the House’s Appropriations Subcommittee as leaked on YouTube. Walker is an Air Force official tasked with overseeing much of the branch’s science and technology research efforts.

After 21 years of experiments, the controversial HAARP project is no longer “an area that we have any need for in the future,” he said.
