The epicenter of the earthquake was around 170 miles at sea off the coast of Kodiak, Alaska, which itself is around 600 miles away from the HAARP facility in Gakona. Not exactly a stone’s throw. Still, that didn’t stop many tin foil hatters from reaching their own conclusions about the connection between a rather frequent natural phenomenon and a supposed black research site. “Right By The #HAARP Facility… false flag?? #Weatherwarfare” wrote one Twitter user, while another asked “Does #deepstate have #earthquake weapon? What’s #HAARP? In #Alaska?” Many Twitter uses believe the earthquake was a test ahead of the intentional triggering of “the Big One” which will bring California crashing into the sea. Better go on that marijuana tourism trip before it’s too late.
Conspiracy theories alleging connections between HAARP and seismic activity is nothing new. Since its opening in 1993, the ionospheric research facility has been a frequent target for conspiracy theories due mainly to the fact that it was funded by the US Air Force, the Office of Naval Research, and DARPA but today is operated by the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Is this just another example of conspiracy theorists seeking a comforting narrative that someone is in control when frightening random events occur, or could something nefarious actually be afoot? One thing is for sure: HAARP is weird. Like X-Files weird. While I’m not convinced the facility could actually cause earthquakes, who knows what unforeseen consequences all that tampering with the ionosphere might cause?
