Pine Gap for those who don’t know about it, is a top secret US base, mostly underground, about as far away and remote as any place on Earth in central Australia. Only US personal are allowed on the base. All food is flown in from California to the base. Australians are only allowed to secure the perimeter. There has been a lot of strange goings on there, especially recently. It seems the base is experimenting with energy techs and have caused temps in central Australia to go so high they had to created a new temperature color code on their weather maps this week!
Here is a local story about the weather.
Australia swelters through hottest ever day
This is all about Pine Gap:
SECRET TECHNOLOGY AT PINE GAP
In the book Cosmic Conspiracy by Stan Deyo, he writes that Pine Gap is 12 miles from the dead centre of Australia and has been drilled down 5.3 miles. This bore could be used as an underground antenna for VLF electricity broadcasts. He says as it is supposed to be involved in both upper atmospheric sub-surface research, the ‘bore antenna’ could be used to tune a gigantic ‘standing wave’ field around the entire planet.
This system could be tuned to set up a resonating electric field around the planet to an altitude of 250 miles. The book says that there are rumors saying that Pine Gap has a very large nuclear facility used to power its enormous ‘transceiver’. More rumors say also high-voltage high-energy plasma accelerators possibly for power generation, a ‘death ray’ or plasma cannon.
Record heat sees Australia map upgrade
Sydneysiders and tourists cool off as they swim in the sea at Manly beach in Sydney on January 8, 2013. Extreme heat in Australia forced the government’s weather bureau to upgrade its temperature scale, with new colours on the climate map to reflect new highs forecast next week.

Australia’s Weather Is So Hot, New Colors Added To Weather Map
Australia weather map adds new colors for record breaking heat (Image via Bureau of Meteorology) The forecast in Australia: Hot, hot, hot—and getting hotter.
As a record-breaking heatwave hovers over many regions and territories (which are in their summer months now), the continent’s Bureau of Meteorology has added two new colors to the weather map to reflect the rising mercury.
The map currently shows the weather in orange tones at the top, which indicate temperatures 40 to 48 degrees Celsius. But forecasts are predicting off-the-charts weather. As a result, pink and purple will now cover temperatures over 50 degrees Celsius—should it climb that high.
For those rusty on the temperature conversion, that is a sweat-inducing 122 degrees Fahrenheit. (The record-setting temperature of 50.7 set in 1960 has, thankfully, still not been broken.)
“The forecast coming from the bureau’s model is showing temperatures in excess of 50 degrees,” said David Jones, head of the bureau’s climate monitoring and prediction unit.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, a “dome of heat” over Australia is contributing to the record-breaking weather, which has gone on for six straight days with average maximum temps above 39 degrees Celcius (102 Fahrenheit). The trend seems likely to continue.
Adding to the misery, the searing heat is also fueling wildfires that continue to rage in southeastern Australia.
“You don’t get conditions worse than this,” Shane Fitzsimmons, New South Wales Rural Fire Service commissioner, told the Associated Press.
Australia isn’t the only place battling record high temperatures. Last year, the United States had its warmest year on record.
