Uncle Sam's .mil had been semi-quietly scuttling HAARP -- causing earthquakes, controlling the weather and susceptible minds either being too much work, or at least not enough of an edge to sway a Senate subcommittee -- when University of Alaska Fairbanks, who'd already built the site's fluxgate magnetometer, admitted they'd like to give it a go. UAF bein' a big old space-grant university,* they were able to swing some funds for locomotive fuel† and snowplowing, and there it is: HAARP's now a student-staffed project. And it's back in the transmitting business, or preparing to be.
So don't you come cryin' to me when Indiana soybeans and Ukraine wheat come up paisley, okay? And for pete's sake, don't get crosswise of UAF.
* No, really.
† Still, really.
