I don't think that you can actually plan a hurricane to happen. It could be possible that the hurricane was a higher strength due to the effects of global warming. Katrina was a storm that was like no one had seen before. I believe what happened is that the warmer Gulf current had something to do with the strength of Katrina.
The waters of the Gulf of Mexico are the warmest that it has been. So it would not surprise me if this hurricane season would be as bad as last years.
The Gulf Stream, located along the eastern coast of the United States, is a fast, intense current known as a western-boundary current. These currents are located on the western side of every ocean basin. The Gulf Stream is a result of the wind pattern acting on most of the North Atlantic Ocean. The combination of the Trade Winds (10°- 25°N) blowing to the west and the Westerlies (35°- 55°N) blowing to the east cause the North Atlantic to rotate clockwise. This basin wide, clockwise flow is referred to as the Subtropicla Gyre. Because of the Earth's rotation, the poleward flow in the western Atlantic is constrained to a narrow current on the western boundary of the ocean basin. This is the Gulf Stream.

can anyone back me up on this....
isnt there is a major glacier (somewhere) that feeds its water into the gulf of mexico. this mass of frozen water is fresh. and the galcier has been melting incredibly fast in the last 5 years.
when fresh water meets with salt water, the salt water sinks and the fresh water floats... thus a change in the water current.
what if... they used global warming techniques to heat up and melt that glacier which would interfere with the water current and create a storm ?

Can you say for certain that the weather isn't being controlled, or that FEMA did not use the opportunity to see how far they could go and just how much control they had over people during the disaster? And no I wasnt asking people to decide whether anything was planned or not, I was only wanting to hear the opinions of others on the topic I posted.

I don't know how they could have planned it, and, other than real estate, i really can't understand why they would plan it. If the govt. can control the weather, why not send a massive typhoon to North Korea and take care of that nut job over there? Or maybe sent five hurricanes, and a massive dust storm to Iran.

You can not plan a hurricane.
If you think this is a conspiracy for FEMA then I think you are thinking about this disaster all wrong.
If this was a FEMA conspiracy they utterly failed at it.
It took them 6 days to respond to the help down here. The National Guard arrived in 4.
4 DAYS!! People were here in water logged streets. With dying people on the interstate. People were dead. Laying there on the street with people walking by.
If you want to know about Katrina you have to of experienced first hand like all the people down here have. And I.
Do you know that FEMA still has not given everyone who has applied for a FEMA trailer when they have no home to live in. and FEMA is getting ready to leave. After a year.
They utterly failed in my perspective.

well, i kinda think it was planned, not the hurricane but the leevee stuff.
cause back in like the 50s i think the levees were also broken to let the lower wards an stuff flood to protect the richer neighborhoods. so it would just be as much likely they where gonna try to flood the lower wards any way no matter if people left or not.
