Anders is responding to your post! :-)

I think it is hard to start a discussion of this based just on HAARP, you
have to broaden the subject a bit to include other forms of climate
engineering, like seeding the seas with iron to cause algae blooms,
modifying albedo, "butterfly control" and causing/inhibiting cloud
formation. If you do this, I think you will get more people involved and
a higher likeliehood of creating a "critical mass" for the thread.
