Space Based Weather Control:
The "Thunderstorm Solar Power Satellite"
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
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 the subject.

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. "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
Safety is emphasized in both papers.
