The US-run HAARP facility near Gakona, Alaska
A so-called “research” program developed based on the technology of electromagnetic waves is believed to have been used to set off natural disasters, say a number of conspiracy theorists. 
The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) run by the US may have been used to spark a number of earthquakes over the past few years, claim a number of US officials and conspiracy theorists as quoted in an article by columnist Nasser Namvar published on Press TV website. “Nick Begich Jr., the son of former US lawmaker Nick Begich, and author of Angels Don’t Play This HAARP, has claimed that HAARP could trigger earthquakes,” the article reads. The piece also highlights that former Minnesota Governor and “noted conspiracy theorist” Jesse Ventura has raised the possibility of the US government “using HAARP to manipulate the weather or to bombard people with mind-controlling radio waves.” “Others are engaging even in an eco-type terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves,” former US Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen was quoted in the article as saying in a 1997 conference on terrorism. HAARP operates a major sub-arctic facility, named the HAARP Research Station, near Gakona, Alaska. HAARP comprises an array of 180 antennas approximately 72 feet (22 meters) tall linked together to function as one giant antenna to focus the energy coming out of the antenna field and inject that energy into the ionosphere (a region of the upper atmosphere). The energy emitted from HAARP is 72,000 times more intense than that of waves from a conventional radio station, claim experts. HAARP has been at the center of numerous conspiracy theories for years.
