There has been much speculation as to whether or not control of the forces of mother nature is science fiction or science fact. The evidence is mounting in the favor of man, specifically the United States Government, being able to control everything from Tsunamis to Earthquakes.
With the scientific advancements of the 20th century, a fundamental understanding of our natural world also took great leaps forward. Despite having much to learn, mankind began to understand how the planet functioned at the micro and macroscopic level. At the forefront of this research were the countries who were world economic leaders; Russia, Germany, Japan, Great Britain, France and the United States (in conjunction with their respective allies and partners). After World War II decimated the infrastructure and populace of the world, few of these ‘leaders’ were in the position to continue this research and so the United States Government became the tip of the spear in this endeavor.
Simultaneously, the US secrecy complex was consuming everything it touched and highly confidential programs sprang up monthly, justified by the ideologically opposing spear point, Communism. Some of these programs, we are finding out in the decades following, involved studies into using our natural environment as a weapon.
In one such program, according to the Telegraph, the United States and New Zealand conducted secret tests of a “tsunami bomb” designed to destroy coastal cities by using underwater blasts to trigger massive tidal waves.
The tests were carried out in waters around New Caledonia and Auckland, New Zealand during the Second World War and showed that the weapon was feasible and a series of 10 large offshore blasts could potentially create a 33-foot tsunami capable of inundating a small city.
The top secret operation, code-named “Project Seal”, tested the doomsday device as a possible rival to the nuclear bomb. About 3,700 bombs were exploded during the tests, first in New Caledonia and later at Whangaparaoa Peninsula, near Auckland.
The plans came to light during research by a New Zealand author and film-maker, Ray Waru, who examined military files buried in the national archives.
“Presumably if the atomic bomb had not worked as well as it did, we might have been tsunami-ing people,” said Mr Waru.
“It was absolutely astonishing. First that anyone would come up with the idea of developing a weapon of mass destruction based on a tsunami … and also that New Zealand seems to have successfully developed it to the degree that it might have worked.” The project was launched in June 1944 after a US naval officer, E A Gibson, noticed that blasting operations to clear coral reefs around Pacific islands sometimes produced a large wave, raising the possibility of creating a “tsunami bomb”.
The tests revealed that a single explosion would not produce a tsunami, but concluded that a line of 2,000,000 kg (4,400,000 lb) of explosives about 8 km (5.0 mi) off the coast could create a destructive wave. Astonishing indeed.
Even more astonishing is the fact that these weapons have been refined in-secret even further over the past half-century. Projects like ‘Project Seal’ are eventually pulled even deeper into the top secret world of the US Clandestine research apparatus but shutting down one iteration of a program, only to continue the next generation of it under a new name, new directors and an even higher security clearance level.
Mr Waru said the initial testing was positive but the project was eventually shelved in early 1945, though New Zealand authorities continued to produce reports on the experiments into the 1950s. Experts concluded that single explosions were not powerful enough and a successful tsunami bomb would require about 2 million kilograms of explosive arrayed in a line about five miles from shore.
“If you put it in a James Bond movie it would be viewed as fantasy but it was a real thing,” he said. “I only came across it because they were still vetting the report, so there it was sitting on somebody’s desk [in the archives].”
Twenty three years later, an extensive 1968 Office of Naval Research document felt the need to address a failed program that had been out of operation and collecting dust since 1945. Why they were still summarizing and commenting on failed hypotheses of the previous generation of researchers is pretty obvious – the program still existed. According to Wikipedia, they had this to say:
[This report] addressed this hypothesis of coastal damage due to large explosion-generated waves, and found theoretical and experimental evidence showing it to be relatively inefficient in wave-making potential, with most wave energy dissipated by breaking on the continental shelf before reaching the shore.
By this time, researchers made it clear that man-made explosives did not make the cut when attempting to create an effective, coastal-city-destroying tsunami. Perhaps, they looked back to mother nature for answers on how she would create the perfect weaponized wave. Perhaps, the marriage of two powerful forces of mother nature in one clandestine research project would yield the perfect one-two-punch of a weapon.
In the era of the cold war, these programs were inherently secretive, the excuse always being national security and protecting our technology from prying Soviet eyes. Once given carte blanche, these powerful, well-funded operations turned from making a device that would be used overtly (once developed) into a weapon that would be used under the guise of an actual natural disaster.
In the golden era of warfare, the US Government would drop a hydrogen bomb and announce to the world, “Yes, we did it, and you’re welcome. We just saved mankind”. As the horrors of nuclear war became more apparent and the United States continued to play their role of benevolent world-power, it became clear that dropping nukes on civilian populations would no longer accomplish any foreign policy objectives for the oligarchs in control. Mother nature would become the perfect patsy in a plot to both decimate a region, pummel the local populace into submission and open the door to good ol’ Uncle Sam to step in and assert his influence, or sit back and watch it all burn.
No one knows for sure just how advanced these weapons are, but the speculation arises from many bits of information that has crept into the public domain since WWII. We know the US Government has dabbled in creating floods through “cloud seeding” in Vietnam – that has been admitted. But when one starts talking about weather modification, they breach the realm of conspiracy and are no longer credible. We know that the technology exists to manipulate the Ionopshere and therefore the jet stream, but talk of steering hurricanes and controlling their intensity in brushed aside as nonsense. Earthquakes have even been created through various methods of induced seismicity including such mundane methods as reservoir draining, waste water injection and fracking. But mention large-scale seismic induction from HAARP (covered elsewhere ad nauseum) and you are instantly wearing a tinfoil hat. At least it is clear these kinds of reactions between man-made systems and nature are bubbling to the surface of the public consciousness [Science Daily; 07/13]:
The number of earthquakes has increased dramatically over the past few years within the central and eastern United States. More than 300 earthquakes above a magnitude 3.0 occurred in the three years from 2010-2012, compared with an average rate of 21 events per year observed from 1967-2000. This increase in earthquakes prompts two important questions: Are they natural, or human-made?
Many of these incidents are side-effects from commercial operations, but this is how cause and effect are discovered, just as the aforementioned 1944 coral-reef-blasting around Pacific atolls launched Project Seal. Of course, 1944 was a much more naive time and it is certain that the clandestine weaponized programs are years ahead of the accidental discoveries made by the scientific community. One cannot know the extent of these programs with any certainty due to the files being held under lock and key (and probably a lot more), but every once in a while, a glimpse into these files lets us know what is possibly (and probably) out there, as was the case with Mr. Waru’s Tsunami Bomb revelations:
In his new book Secrets and Treasures, Mr Waru reveals other unusual findings from the archives including Defence Department records of thousands of UFO sightings by members of the public, military personnel and commercial pilots.
Some of the accounts of the moving lights in the sky include drawings of flying saucers, descriptions of aliens wearing “pharaoh masks” and alleged examples of extraterrestrial writing.
When the plethora of information across the internet is taken into consideration is apparent that control of rain, waves, earthquakes and hurricanes may not be science fiction after all. Combine these scientific advancements with the secrecy and power the US Government has and the greed and avarice the power elite are consumed by and you have a recipe for a “natural disaster” occurring at just the right place, at just the right time, benefiting just the right people. To the rest of the world, it would appear that it was merely a series of unfortunate events, but to those who pull the strings behind the scenes, things tend to play out just they way they would like. Observation of the world of politics backs this up and now, observation of the bits of scientific knowledge leaking out of our National Security-Military-Industrial-Complex tend to agree with this notion.
To ignore this information and pretend the world is as it was 100 years ago is to turn off your senses and intellect to the reality of the world we live in. Technology has come a long way, greed and power remain the same and now those in control have the power to do as they please.
