National Wildlife Federation Hurricane Katrina Anniversary Report Card: “Two years after Hurricane Katrina much has become clear. We know that the devastation in New Orleans and surrounding areas was less a natural than a man-made disaster.

Furthermore, the storms intensity itself was fueled by unusually warm waters in the tropical Atlantic due, in part, to global warming pollution.”
