Talking Naming Deadly-Storms After "conservatives"!!!

. .


"We’re all at the mercy of the other people in the world who share our name. Consider how sickening it must have been to be an Adolf as the full extent of the Fuhrer’s crimes was revealed. Still, not just people can spoil a name: The most famous Katrina of the 21st century was a deadly storm, and in recent years its popularity as a baby name is reported to have collapsed.

The climate-change group 350 Action wants to take advantage of this guilt-by-association. Why, the organization asks, should innocent Andrews and Hugos and Sandys be tied to lethal meteorological disasters? Why not link the storms to people who have been complicit in creating them?

But who are those people? According to 350 Action, they are climate-change skeptics in public office. A warmer planet, many climatologists argue, is one in which tropical storms are more frequent and more violent.

The organization is circulating an online petition to name storms after politicians who have publicly questioned the idea that human beings are causing the planet to warm or who have voted against legislation to curb greenhouse gas emissions—legislators such as House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Representative Michelle Bachmann (R-Minn.), and Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.)."
