NASA "Discovers" Thunderstorm Ionosphere Link

HAARP Represents The U.S. Unclassified "Bone" Of Disinformation

CNN Article (With Questions)

"WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- Thunderstorms on Earth can lead to storms in the outer reaches of the atmosphere that disrupt radio transmissions and other electronic communications, U.S. researchers said on Tuesday.

The discovery could lead to more reliable global-positioning satellite (GPS) navigation and short-wave radio transmissions by improving forecasts of high-altitude disturbances that can disrupt them, said University of California-Berkeley researcher Thomas Immel".

Question: Could such a "Discovery" lead to the development of a technical means of manipulating the ionosphere, and therefore the GPS, and shortwave broadcast?

"Using data from NASA satellites, Immel and other researchers discovered that thunderstorms over South America, Africa and Southeast Asia can create turbulence in two bands of electrical gas that hover 250 miles (402 kilometers) above the equator in part of the upper atmosphere known as the ionosphere.

These plasma bands are far too thin to be directly affected by wind from thunderstorms, but researchers found that the wind can shape the plasma bands by generating electricity in the layer of atmosphere below them".

Question: If wind can generate electricity which alters the ionosphere, then what about lightning? Could lightning alter the ionsphere?

"Three of the densest sections of plasma were located directly above areas with frequent thunderstorms -- the Amazon Basin in South America, the Congo Basin in Africa, and Indonesia.

But researchers found another dense section of plasma above the Pacific Ocean, far from thunderstorm zones -- evidence that tropical thunderstorms have a global influence".

Question: Could manipulation of thunderstorms via particle beams generators (i.e., artificial lightning generators) also have a global influence on the ionosphere, and could this manipulation be used to alter global weather patterns?

"That may explain why the ionosphere above North America is more turbulent than other areas, disrupting radio transmissions that travel through it."

Question: Could a covert weather modification program which utilizes particle beam generators explain why North America's ionosphere is more turbulent than other areas?

"We now know that accurate predictions of ionospheric disturbances have to incorporate this effect from tropical weather," Immel said in a statement.

Researchers now hope to determine if the plasma bands shift with the seasons, or during large events like hurricanes".
