HOLES IN HEAVEN
This alarming film is a prime example of grassroots filmmaker Wendy Robbins' good work. Narrated by Martin Sheen, the film investigates the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), its history and implications, and examines the dangers and benefits of high and low frequencies and of electromagnetic technology. The HAARP facility is used to study the earth's ionosphere -- the electrically-charged belt surrounding the Earth's upper atmosphere, ranging between 40 to 60 miles from its surface. The film strives to give a fair and accurate appraisal of HAARP, and brings before the public vital information about a project which could have a dramatic effect upon our entire world. The HAARP Program is jointly managed by the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Navy, and is based in Gakona, Alaska. It is designed to "understand, simulate, and control ionospheric processes that might alter the performance of communication and surveillance systems." But in its zeal to "control ionospheric processes," HAARP may be heating up the ionosphere and pouring chemicals into the atmosphere to an intolerable degree, putting life on Earth into question.
