Did President Bush cause hurricane Katrina?

The stupidity of people who write letters to the editor constantly astounds me. A recent one claims that President Bush caused hurricane Katrina. The logic of this is rather convuleted. The writer claims that since President Bush did not push the Kyoto Agreements on global warming, then the hurricane was the result of global warming; therefore it was the President's fault.

Global warming (according to some experts) has been around for many years. The Kyoto
Agreements go back into the 1990's, long before President Bush. So, it is a long jump from the present administration failure to push these agreements to the present hurricane season. But, the people who write letters are not too concerned with logic.

This writer also fails to read history. There were more hurricanes in 1933 than in 2005. Of course, 1933 was in the middle of the previous great warming cycle. That cycle was evidenced by the great nation-wide drought. The dust bowl of the midwest was but one evidence of this.

I suppose we should be thankful that some people can still write in English. It would be nice if they had some sense to go along with this ability.
