According to Russian scientists the origin of the heatwave currently sweeping the country would be Alaska, in a room heavily guarded by the Navy and the U.S. Air Force where rows of antennas are aligned. The allegations sound like a new chapter of the Cold War, with Russian scientists accusing the U.S. of using secret weather weapons.

The heatwaves in Russia have led to hundreds of fires throughout the country directly causing the death of 52 people and indirectly killing thousands due to the thick toxic smog. Temperatures in Russia have exceeded 40 degrees creating an environment for fires to soar. To date the fires have razed around 174,000 hectares and damaged a quarter of Russian crops due to drought, triggering a ban on wheat exports until the end of 2010. This in turn caused wheat prices to explode by a staggering 70 per cent.

Gueorgui Vasíliev, a physicist at the University of Moscow, went as far as blaming the HAARP project for all cataclysms that have occurred in the world since 1997.

Andrei Areshev, deputy director of the Strategic Culture Foundation, wrote recently, “At the moment, climate weapons may be reaching their target capacity and may be used to provoke droughts, erase crops, and induce various anomalous phenomena in certain countries.”

The article has been carried by publications throughout Russia’s media, including “International Affairs,” a magazine published by the Foreign Ministry and by the state-owned news agency RIA Novosti.

According to the accusations, the program in question far from being a scientific project to study the functioning of the atmosphere and the effects of climate change, as defined by the Department of Defense U.S., would be a powerful ionospheric heater that would amend the electricity floating in the atmosphere, causing climate effects that could be directed toward a specific part of the world. Seen like this, HAARP would be a powerful geophysical weapon.

Russia also has a similar program which goes under the name of SURA and its origin dates back to the days of the USSR, created in 1981, during the Cold War, the Russian program has also had its share of targeted accusations, when American meteorologist Scott Stevens accussed the Russian military of the source cause that resulted in Hurricane Katrina and devastated New Orleans in 2005.

Wikipedia defines HARP as an ionospheric research program jointly funded by the US Air Force, the US Navy, the University of Alaska and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
