[SIZE=3]In response to the question: "Was Katrina Planned", I, being who and how I am, had to do a little research of my own which I will be continuing. I had to ask myself; "Is that really possible?" We know white people have been keeping records of weather and everything in their reach for well over a hundred years...and yet the hurricane of 2004 in the South Atlantic that hit Brazil was the only recorded one in history. This raised my curiosity. In essence I wanted to know how hard it would be to make one if it was at all possible. What I came up with...I don't like at all!!! Why? Lets take the following points into consideration: 1. The white man knows ocean currents inside and out from speed down to travel direction. 2. He equally knows and has the capacity to use electromagnatic and or thermal energy under the water to change and alter the ocean temperatures. 3. When we take into consideration the wind direction, the ocean flow and current directions of the ocean...the only other factor that would be needed to create one is a change in ocean temperature...which "they" can alter. In other words, if we do the math on wind and on ocean currents, the only thing needed is a change in water temperature and whalla...instant hurricane! The natural wind direction and ocean currents will do the rest. What we're speaking of is science. It's also someone's predisposition to control nature and use it for their own purpose. Now, What people would want to do that?...Hmmm, let me think? Below is a recorded conversation regarding what I've concluded. They didn't conclude it. They simply informed me of how a hurricane is made. The rest came from my mind. South Atlantic Hurricanes Tuesday, December 14, 2004 Why are hurricanes rare in the South Atlantic?

At the Witte Museum in San Antonio, Texas, we recorded this question: Alex Garcia: Hi, my name is Alex Garcia. Here's my question: Why aren't there any hurricanes in the South Atlantic Ocean? JB: Alex, hurricanes can occur in the South Atlantic. A storm system scientists are calling a combination hurricane/tropical cyclone killed three people and destroyed 200 homes in Brazil last March. But South Atlantic hurricanes are rare. DB: To make a hurricane, you need warm ocean water and weak, uniform winds overhead. If the wind increases too quickly or changes direction with height - that is, if there's wind shear - then the hurricane is torn apart before it can start. In the South Atlantic, the water is generally cooler. There's more wind shear, so hurricanes can't organize. JB: Also, the tropical North Atlantic has what's called the "intertropical convergence zone," where the trade winds from the northern and southern hemispheres converge. This special zone stays near or north of the equator throughout the year -- a result of there being more land mass in the northern hemisphere than the southern. It spawns thunderstorms that can coalesce to form a hurricane -- and it helps supply rotation to hurricanes. DB: The result is that most hurricanes happen in the North Atlantic.

August 31, 2005 The Science of Global Warming - Hurricanes in the South Atlantic Science reported a study by Pezza and Simmonds that indicates the South Atlantic experienced its first hurricane in March 2004. The hurricane, which hit Brazil, was caused by unusual metereological conditions associated with large scale atmospheric circulation patterns. These patterns are being influenced by climate change so perhaps this hurricane is the first of many. Science review of study published in Geophys. Res. Lett.
