As anyone who has read my first book will know, back in the 1980s I spent a considerable amount of time in the Hunza, the Shangri La-like kingdom perched in the vertiginous convergent ranges of the Himalaya, the Hindu Kush and the Karakorum. I loved the place and the people. It came as a shock (pun intended) when the Hunza was rocked by a huge earthquake at precisely the time Iraq was being blasted by American bombs a few years later.  I always wondered if there was a connection between the bombing and the quake.

Last year I interviewed Ashiya Austin and she spoke of HAARP, amongst other things. It was the first I’d heard of HAARP. Then, just two hours ago, I decided to stop in to see a friend/neighbour while walking up the hill after a lovely after-work swim. Lucia was teaching a yoga class in our new place and I didn’t want to rush home and disturb the class. It’s quite a small house we’re now in. This friend brought up the potential connection being made by some between HAARP and the recent disastrous Christchurch quake. They also mentioned people getting sick from chem-trails over Whangarei which is only two hours from here. The skin on a Whangarei friend’s hands was a series of open cracks. This I find interesting as I had horrible eczema all my life (with open cracks on the knuckles of my fingers right into my late twenties. The eczema only cleared when I began living in low-pollution places and eating an organic vegetarian diet.

Anyways, when I sat down to write 30 minutes ago I opened up my inbox and found an email from another friend with the following slightly edited information, link and video. I leave it to you to make your own interpretation. It sounds more bizarre than a Robert Ludlum thriller.


I threw this together very fast. Try to connect the dots. The clues are blatant. It gets more and more obvious that man-made earthquakes are real and being executed globally and at an alarming rate. Wake up to the forbidden truth that has been hidden from you. It’s scarier than science fiction.

You do not need a fault line to be able to produce a man-made earthquake, HAARP can create quakes anywhere there is water or trapped moisture; our planet is honeycombed with water and pockets of gas. HAARP can move tectonic plates in any direction it is aimed at. Scalar waves which are generated off of EM waves can accomplish this. There are countless top secret HAARP array’s worldwide. Stop focusing on just the HAARP in Alaska because it’s one of the only publicly known antenna farms. Top secret above and underground HAARP facilities cover the globe.
