Van Allen Radiation Belts Damaged Beyond Repair in the 60's

The Van Allen Radiation belts were damaged in the 60's by the US Air Force. According to certain highly trusted sources, they damaged the Van Allen Radiation belts so much that a "great hole" was opened up, which has been continuing to grow ever since, along specific lines of magnetic force. Furthermore, it cannot be repaired. This will result in the entire collapse of the atmosphere and increasingly allow cosmic rays and cosmic dust to bombard the earth. It will also allow for increasing severe magnetic storms to penetrate to the surface of the earth along the gravitational vortex points, most noticeably off the coast of Florida in the Bermuda Triangle. (This can be seen as severe electrical storms and also massive heat waves, etc.) The hole will also allow for super-magnetic fields from the sun to penetrate to the surface of the earth causing widespread power failures - even at nuclear powered plants.
There is no human means to repair the damage done to the Van Allen radiation belts! Eventually our biosphere/atmosphere will collapse and effectively leave all of humanity "naked" without this protective membrane. Furthermore, at that final hour of total biospherical failure, we will not be able to discern the difference between the atmosphere and the seas resulting in all those in the seas and oceans at that time perishing.

Thought you or your readership might be interested to know the truth of the real cause of "global warming".

Check out operation Argus and Fishbowl for more information on the nuclear bomb tests which destroyed our Van Allen Belts.


On the other hand, the "Starfish" H-bomb test, conducted by the USAir Force in July 1962 above Johnston Island west of Hawaii, injected high-energy electrons into the stable inner radiation belt, many of them lasting a year or two, some even longer. The intense artificial radiation belt from that blast disabled three satellites.
Nuclear explosions in space were banned in 1967 by an international treaty, but nature itself sometimes steps in. On March 24, 1991 a strong interplanetary shock, originating on the Sun, hit the Earth's atmosphere, compressed it greatly and sent a secondary shock through its interior. Like surfers riding a wave, trapped electrons and ions rode this shock and within a minute or so created a new radiation belt just outside the inner belt (picture below). The new belt contained both electrons and protons of high energy (15-20 Mev), and it disabled the MARECS-I satellite and degraded GOES-7. The new (damaged) belt was observed by the US Air Force satellite CRRES and was still in place (somewhat weakened) when CRRES stopped transmitting at the end of 1991.

Here is a picture of the Starfish nuclear bomb test. It can be found here.

if there were no human means of repairing the damage then how were we able to damage it in the first place?

Uhm... I think the WebsiteWonder probably needs to rethink the theories and get more information. Van Allen belts are way, way, WAY above the ozone layer and way way way way above the surface of the Earth and any bombs.

The whole world would have seen an explosion out there in space.

...and how do you disrupt a magnetic field, anyway? If you put a magnet down, there's nothing you can do within that magnetic field to make holes appear in it.

That one goes in the Hall Of Unbelievably Bad Science, I'm afraid.

It actually sounds like there wasn't any damage but more belts were created, or am I missing something??

No, but the website is missing something.

The Van Allen belts have always been there. We DISCOVERED more about the structure in the past 50 years or so, but they've always been there.
