Is HAARP being used as a weapon to create global warming and drought conditions worldwide? India certainly believes that to be the case and is fearful about the devastation to the country’s food resources caused by America’s use of such technology.

“The has developed a type of weapon called High Frequency Active Auroral Research Programme (HAARP).It strikes the upper atmosphere with a focussed and steerable electromagnetic beam,” Environment Minister Anil Madhav Dave told the in a written reply.

is an advanced model of a super powerful ionospheric heater which may cause the globe to warm and have effect,” he said.

Dave was replying to a question on whether the government is aware of HAARP, capable of effecting devastating impact on the world’s climate including that of and resulting in destabilisation of agricultural and ecological systems.

He said a study conducted by Indian Council of Agricultural Research has projected the impact of climate change to be adverse in terms of reduction of yield of major crops including wheat, maize, mustard, potato and sorghum.

Recognising the adverse impact of climate change, the minister said that the government launched the Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC) in June 2008 to deal with climate change-related issues.

NAPCC comprises eight missions in areas of solar energy, enhanced energy efficiency, habitat, water, sustaining Himalayan ecosystems, forestry, agriculture and strategic knowledge of climate change.

It also addresses the issues relating to mitigation of greenhouse gases and adaptation to the adverse impacts of climate change on environment, forest, habitat, water resources and agriculture.

Dave said 32 states and union territories (UTs) have also prepared a State Action Plan on Climate Change (SAPCC).
