|Some conspiracy nuts have blames HAARP for the recent power outages. While this is likely the result of an overactive imagination is there anything to the dangers of this thing? Any rocket scientists out there know anything about this?

|E-6A/B Mercury and TACAMO. That's what HAARP is all about, although there was a rather fanciful "X Files" about the subject once.
And, speaking as a former "black helo" pilot, I can assure you that they are nothing but a bunch of Navy, Chair Force and Army CSAR/Special Warfare support helo idiots tooling around on NVGs at night.
Power Outage=woefully antiquated and patch-worked electrical grid.

|I worked for a power company for a couple of years in college in the early '70s, and it was common knowledge even then that the infrastructure needed work. I've also done work recently with highway engineers, who've known for decades there was a judgment day coming about bridges and roads. Water systems are falling apart all over the country, and sewage plants frequently fail and dump Stuff into the oceans/lakes/rivers.
Is it likely the power grid is an exception? With every politician running on a promise to keep taxes down and bring the wasteful bureaucrats to heel? My hometown put off between $2 million and $3 million of road maintenance per year for the last four or five years, and we just got word the bill to repair the neglected damage now will be more than $40 million. Things that are worth having cost money, and if we won't spend the relative pennies to maintain them when they need it, we have to kick in the big bucks when they fail.
|The estimate I heard on the news last night was...||dr hoo|

|... that to fix the roads, bridges, water, sewer and power in this country would carry a price tag of 1 trillion dollars.|
|we'd rather spend it bombing then rebuilding iraq (nm)||ColnagoFE|
