We are sad to announce that Dr. Rosalie Bertell has passed away. Her scientific contributions are outstanding in many regards, pertaining to the impacts of depleted uranium contamination, her work on environmental modification techniques for military use including the HAARP program.

Dr. Rosalie Bertell was founder of the International Institute of Concern for Public Health. According to Rosalie Bertell, pertaining to the Pentagon’s HAARP program:

“It would be rash to assume that HAARP is an isolated experiment which would not be expanded. It is related to fifty years of intensive and increasingly destructive programs to understand and control the upper atmosphere… It would be rash not to associate HAARP with the space laboratory construction which is separately being planned by the United States…The ability of the HAARP/Spacelab/rocket combination to deliver very large amount of energy, comparable to a nuclear bomb, anywhere on earth via laser and particle beams, are frightening…The project is likely to be “sold” to the public as a space shield against incoming weapons, or, for the more gullible, a device for repairing the ozone layer.”

She has been a powerful voice and an inspiration

Dear Friends and Colleagues of Rosalie Bertell,

It is with sadness that I’m writing to inform you that our dear Sister Rosalie died early this morning, June 14, 2012, after a week or so in the hospital with severe respiratory distress due to advanced chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Despite her illness, she remained in good spirits and most interested in all of the works of justice she strove to support throughout her life right to the end. She died very peacefully.

Her funeral Mass will be here at our Motherhouse Chapel on Monday, June 17th at 10 a.m.

We will be remembering all of you as well as Sister Rosalie in our prayers that day, along with all the people who were victims of nuclear disasters and the many other societal ills that were the concerns of her heart and her life’s work at the International Institute of Concern for Public Health. 


Sister Julia
