I’ve seen some pretty incredible conspiracy theories, but I think that this tops them all:
A meteorologist in Pocatello, Idaho, claims Japanese gangsters known as the Yakuza caused Hurricane Katrina.
Scott Stevens says after looking at NASA satellite photos of the hurricane, he’s is convinced it was caused by electromagnetic generators from ground-based microwave transmitters.
I can’t even begin to understand what kind of disconnect from rational thought could lead someone seriously to suggest that a criminal syndicate has the power to control the weather, and specifically to cause destructive weather patterns at will.
A hurricane occurred, in a hurricane-prone part of the world, in hurricane season, and someone decides that it must have been the Yakuza.
Me, I think that Occam’s Razor applies.
