MANILA, Philippines - University of the Philippines scientist Mahar Lagmay belied a video claiming that supertyphoon "Yolanda" was a man-made phenomenon controlled by US-run technology emitting microwave pulse.
"Those claims must first demonstrate that the microwave was the one that formed," Lagmay said in a televised interview with ANC on Monday.
The video uploaded last November 8 gained attention on YouTube amid overwhelming news on the catastrophe wrought by the powerful cyclone. Dutchsince, voicing over moving satellite images of the typhoon's movement, said that a US facility based in Alaska manipulated the direction and strength of the weather disturbance.
"We can follow this storm's formation ... and what we've seen several times is out here near Guam, of all places, we see a large microwave-shaped spiral pulse that comes from the north," the narrator said.
The conspiracy theorist also claimed that microwave pulse is now controlling a new weather system named "Zoraida" spotted off the Philippines.
Lagmay refused to be convinced, addressing concerns of netizens whether Dutchsinse's claims are based on facts.
The name of the facility was not named. But is it possible at all? The answer is yes, it is possible, but of course the truth will not be clear unless enough evidence can be presented.
So what is this facility? Meet the HAARP.
HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) is a little-known, yet critically important U.S. military defense project which has generated quite a bit of controversy over its alleged weather control capabilities and much more.
Though denied by HAARP project officials, some respected researchers allege that secret electromagnetic warfare capabilities of the HAARP project are designed to forward the US military's stated goal of achieving full-spectrum dominance by the year 2020.
Others go so far as to claim that HAARP can and has been used for weather control, to cause earthquakes and tsunamis, to disrupt global communications systems, and more. The U.S. patent of a key developer of HAARP and other documentary evidence support these claims.
The HAARP project website acknowledges that experiments are conducted which use electromagnetic frequencies to fire pulsed, directed energy beams in order to "temporarily excite a limited area of the ionosphere." Some scientists state that purposefully disturbing this sensitive layer could have major and even disastrous consequences. Concerned HAARP researchers like Dr. Michel Chossudovsky of the University of Ottawa and Alaska's Dr. Nick Begich (son of a US Congressman) present evidence suggesting that these disturbances can even be used to trigger earthquakes, affect hurricanes, and for weather control.
Two key major media documentaries, one by Canada's public broadcasting network CBC and the other by the History Channel, reveal the inner workings of the HAARP project in a most powerful way. The very well researched CBC documentary includes this key quote: "It isn't just conspiracy theorists who are concerned about HAARP. In January of 1999, the European Union called the project a global concern and passed a resolution calling for more information on its health and environmental risks. Despite those concerns, officials at HAARP insist the project is nothing more sinister than a radio science research facility."

It does not matter if "Yolanda" and "Zoraida" have been notoriously manipulated. The fact that HAARP has been in existence for a long time already and yet little is known about it should be enough to be suspicious of.
