I have been enjoying this thread. I now wish to join it hopefylly wpill fire into the HAARP debate. I am a trained expert in meteorology (as has
been called for on several occasions). First off, yes, a storm system can and commonly does stall out this has been happening long
before HAARP and will continue to happen as it is due to something called Rossby waves in the atmosphere (in fact, there are also stationary waves in
Martian weather, but of s slightly more subtle type).
Second, those "strange circles" on the radar readout are very common with the new "Next Generation Radar" (NexRad - commonly miscalled "doppler
radar" - out that's trivia...). This too has been occurring since before HAARP was operational. These artifacts are caused by lots of things from
the radar being pointed at too low of an angle (and thus it picks up low level humidity) to the base level reflectivity being miscalibrated.
I am no fan of HAARP, but 4neither of these very common, very normal occurances can or should be blamed on HAARP. Someone (I cannot recall who)
correctly stated that in the case of a normal midlatitude low weather system, lingering contrails are commonplace and are well explained due to the
adiabatic lapse rate and the lifted index (a measure of the mean vertical velocity over a large scale area).
I should also point out that I worked at a national weapons laboratory for more than 10 years in a physics department. While it is certainly not
impossible to get electromagnetic energy to couple with the ground, it is difficult at best. What do I mean by "coupling in with the ground"? I
mean that it is not enough to provide the energy for an event, whatever that event is, you also have to somehow get it to couple into the system you
are trying to impart the energy into. So, for example, say you have an amount of energy X that is in the form of electromagnetic energy (as is
produced by HAARP) - then you somehow need to couple that energy into whatever physical system you wish to impart the energy into, in this case, if
you want to produce earthquakes, you need to impart it into the ground. Some fraction of that energy will be lost, so the net amount you will impart
into the ground will be Y with Y < X.
The hypothesis (that is all it really is as far as you know right now - from the standpoint of being based in physics) that HAARP is using the Van
Allan Radiation Belts (there are two, an inner and ann outer one) as a dynamo to generate feedback and then somehow be projectable to a specific area
is possible, but dubious. I will provide some food for thought and links that I recommend you look into for more information to help guide you on
We do know for a fact that there does exist a special place in the Van Allen Radiation Belt where the coupling does act like a dynamo.
But this is highly variable on a day to day and hour to hour basis and is also affected by the net flux of solar energy into that region, which in
turn depends on sunspot activity among other things.
