Campaign Proposes Naming Hurricanes After Climate Change Deniers: VIDEO

Hurricanes

A worthy effort:

Since 1954, the World Meteorological Organization has been naming extreme storms after people. But we propose a new naming system. One that names extreme storms caused by climate change, after the policy makers who deny climate change and obstruct climate policy.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. I hope this actually happens -- not the hurricanes, but the shaming of the irrational.

  2. Rush Limbaugh would be absolutely thrilled to be the first and like all stupid ideas from the left, it would fizzle.

  6. Yeah, because name-calling is always a great substitute for rational, intelligent arguments that present the facts in a respectable, impartial manner....

    Hrmmm.... It seems to me that if you are so sure of something that you wouldn't HAVE to be so desperate and shrill.

    It's a VERY bad idea to do this, it's unprofessional, cheap, and smacks of propaganda.

    And if you believe in the veracity of something, you'd be able to articulate it. One can not prove a negative, and that is not what science and scientific method is about. Try telling the truth and presenting your evidence, instead of trying to manipulate people with constant fear and bullying.

    I don't care about climate change either way, I'm content to let people be hysterical and conformist and hypocritical. But if you want to impress people who are trying to decide which side to pick, you should try talking about the facts for a change.

    Simply believing in something you CLEARLY do not understand and can not articulate rationally, because you're told to, has all the hallmarks of religious fundamentalism and propaganda.

    You sound too rational and level-headed. What are you doing on this site? The proprietor of site has just called this brain-dead idea "worthy."

  9. "I don't care about climate change either way,..."

    then why boor us with your diatribe,...really?

    They understand the weather pretty darn well, it's the Michele Bachmann & ilk that doesn't so it's clear to see the irony in this, better than a smack in the face.

  10. Naming hurricanes after politicians is a great idea. I doubt "deniers" are so well known that people would get the joke, plus hurricane frequency and intensity isn't correlated with global warming.

  11. "I doubt "deniers" are so well known that people would get the joke,..."

    Michele Bachmann was a presidential candidate, how much more well known could she possibly be, seriously?

  12. This is a great idea. I signed the petition. For those here who feel comfortable denigrating this idea and comfortable with man-made global climate change, your smug days will some day be over. Global warming will have a direct impact on your daily life and you will have to deal with the consequences, whether you believe so now or not.

  13. Bachmann has no problem denigrating facts & science, so no, I have no problem giving her some reality in return.

  14. "For those here who feel comfortable denigrating this idea and comfortable with man-made global climate change, your smug days will some day be over. Global warming will have a direct impact on your daily life and you will have to deal with the consequences, whether you believe so now or not."

    And the second coming of Jesus is right around the corner. Also, He died for you whether you believe in Him or not.

    Enviro-fundies, this is exactly how you sound.

  15. "Global warming will have a direct impact on your daily life and you will have to deal with the consequences, whether you believe so now or not."

    That kind of argument sounds precisely like something a fundie pushing the Jesus would say.

    Thanks for proving my point.

  16. OMG, AG, LOL...

  17. Let's be sure to name a hurricane after RICK and RATBASTARD.
