I'm not sure about it's uses as a mode of power transmission, but HAARP
technology may
be a route to weather control. With a few major breakthoughs in power
amplification, we might see some small effects such as screwing with the
local climate. The DoD has openly admitted that they're pumping dough into
the area of weather control which explains why they have their mitts it
HAARP. Even Popular Science suggested HAARP as a possible route to weather
control. I myself think weather control will come long before decent
weather prediction. With predicting the weather you have to watch, wait,
and look at all the little details to predict where moisture and such is
going to move. With weather control all you need to do is heat up sections
of the atmosphere accordingly to FORCE the system to put out what you want.
It's cruder and insensitive to the ecosystem but it works which is why
military would use it.
