An Idaho weatherman says Japan's Yakuza mafia used a Russian-made electromagnetic generator to cause Hurricane Katrina in a bid to avenge itself for the Hiroshima atom bomb attack -- and that this technology will soon be wielded again to hit another U.S. city.He may be the same nut job quoted in my previous post on a goofy Katrina theory here. That guy blamed it directly on the Russians, though, asserting that they can ship weather from Siberia to affect the US. Of course, Siberia is not noted for its warm climate and hurricanes develop over warm water, so the science is a little fuzzy to me, and apparently to real scientists, too.
Meteorologist Scott Stevens, a nine-year veteran of KPVI-TV in Pocatello, said he was struggling to forecast weather patterns starting in 1998 when he discovered the theory on the Internet. It's now detailed on Stevens' Web site, www.weatherwars.info, the Idaho Falls Post Register reported.
Scientists discount Stevens' claims as ludicrous.
I also wonder where the dolts who were blaming the tsunami on some US action offshore Indonesia are now? I'm sure they believe it's a plan to raise OIL prices, after all...
Or, maybe it's all related to the headline I saw today in the store from Weekly World News: "Einstein's Brain Comes to Life...and goes on rampage!" Perhaps part of the rampage includes generating massive hurricanes...
Of course, they also report: "SCIENTISTS REVEAL LAWYERS & LEECHES HAVE IDENTICAL GENETIC MAKEUP!"
UPDATE: Or maybe it's all related to this:
Dozens of people from Jacksonville to Ft. Pierce flooded the U.S. Coast Guard late Tuesday with calls about a mysterious ball of fire seen flying in the sky...
UPDATE 2: A more mundane explanation of hurricane causation here.
