Former KPVI-TV weatherman Scott Stevens is a freakshow.

We’ve heard that homo decadence in NOLA was responsible for Katrina (the jury’s still out on what the Right will say is the cause of Rita), or a change in the climate due to global warming, or maybe a cyclical weather pattern, but out in Pocatello, Idaho, a former weatherman knows the real reason –

Hurricane Katrina was caused by the Japanese mafia using a Russian electromagnetic generator.

So not kidding. (SeattlePI.com):

Scott Stevens’ last appearance on KPVI-TV was Thursday.

His departure comes after station officials learned a link labeled “Make a Donation” on Stevens’ Web site, http://www.weatherwars.info, where he expounds on his theory, opened a payment form connected to Stevens’ KPVI e-mail address.

Stevens believes a little-known oversight in physical laws makes it possible to create and control storms using a Cold War-era weapon allegedly made by the Russians in 1976. The nine-year KPVI weatherman said he’s received 120,000 hits on his Web site in two days, now gets about 100 e-mails a day and has 15 radio bookings in the next five days. [Do you think he might have some Freeper fans?]

“I needed more time to do everything that’s been put in front of me,” said Stevens, 39. “I have not been able to dedicate the 40 hours a week to this place.”

Earlier this week, scientists told the Idaho Falls Post Register the theory was bogus. “It’s laughable to think it (Hurricane Katrina) could have been manmade,” said Rob Young, a hurricane expert at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, N.C.
