In my search to find information regarding the possibility of earthquake wars and planetary-scale weapons engineering, I came across this interesting review:

Planet Earth the Latest Weapon of War

If this review is an accurate representation of Dr. Bertell's book and its contents - and I have already placed an order for it - then this may be a crucial bit of data for serious researchers. As anyone who has read my own books - The Giza Death Star Trilogy, The Comic War, and my upcoming book co-authored with my friend Dr. Scott D. de Hart, The Grid of the Gods - will know, I have been fascinated, repulsed, fearful, and even pre-occupied with the notion of the entire planet not only being turned into a source of energy in a Kardashev-like classification of a Type One Civilization, but also turned into a weapon.

Now, for those of you who don't know who Kardashev is, nor what his classification scheme was, a brief review is in order. Kardashev was a Russian astronomer and astrophysicist during the Soviet era who, like so many in that field, speculated on the possibilities of human contact with other intelligent life-forms through the space programs being run on Earth (at that time, of course, only two: the Russian, and the American). He evolved a scheme to classify the relative technological sophistication of civilizations, based upon their energy requirements. A Type One Civilization thus required the energy output of an entire planet. A Type Two Civilization required the energy of an entire star, and a Type Three Civilization the energy of an entire galaxy. Implicit in Kardashev's classification scheme is the idea that technologies have evolved in each case, so to speak, to literally suck the energy needed from the corresponding energy source. In short, a TYype One Civilization will have acquired technologies to manipulate the energy of an entire planet.

Well...we're not quite there yet, but Bertell's book seems to imply we're getting very close. The experiments with nuclear airbursts of the late 1950s and early 1960s were clearly - if perhaps inadvertently - doing engineering on a planetary scale, with unforeseen planetary consequences: higher infant mortality rates, dramatic increases of cancer, failure of migrating animals - dependent on the electromagnetic field to migrate - to do so, and so on.  What interests me here is the statement in the review: Despite opposition from the International Union of Astronomers, the US military even put 350,000,000 copper needles into orbit." (And significantly, the review does not specify why the military thought it necessary to do this.) "An experiment which Dr Bertell says some scientist(s) believed may have upset the balance of the planetary magnetic field, causing the massive 8.5 Alaskan earthquake and losing Chile part of its coast." Well, this is sounding familiar!  But the real point here is, that scientists at that time thought there could be a correlation between (1) covert US military atmospheric experiments and (2) planetary magnetic field changes and earthquakes.

The review then makes an additional statement, one which, clearly, signals the development of "earthquake weapons": "Dr. Vertell says that both HAARP and installations in Russia - on which America has, remarkably, collaborated - can also create pulsed, extremely low frequency (ELF) waves which have been directed deep into the earth itself, potentially disrupting delicately poised tectonic plates of the earth's crust.... Given the little understood interplay between tectonic plates, volcano's and the earth's molten core, to call this playing with fire would be an absurd understatement."  And yes, one of those nations involved with this technology is "an old friend": "Her revelations of 30 years of military innovations show that Britain, Germany and NATO have all been involved in military developments which show a cavalier disregard for life on earth." Remember the movie The Core, where planetary disasters are in fact initiated by a secret device beaming energy into the earth's interior?

I cannot agree more with the reviewer of Bertell's book, whose closing words I cite, because they exactly echo my own sentiments: "It is not the planet which may die; it is us. It is ourselves we must love enough to cherish the miraculous web of life which radiates from the earth's core to the farthest limits of our universe."
