The Climate Name Change - Take Action Petition

Environment  (tags: Hurricane, climate deniers, World Meteorological Organization, extreme storms, change name, climate change name )

- 1725 days ago -
The science is clear: global warming is happening faster than ever and humans are responsible. Since 1954, the World Meteorological Organization has been naming extreme storms after people. We think it's time to name the storms after the climate deniers.

This has been posted at least 4 times maybe more, so this petition should garner a few signatures from Care2. Personally, I'm just sorry no one thought of this sooner. Thanks Dandelion.
Hurricane Michelle Bachmann, ya gotta love it. Hurricane Sarah Palin would wipe out a city, probably for ever, too bad we cannot rename the "dust bowl".

There are 30,072 signatures as I write this, the petition is in hopes for 50,000 by November 30, 2013. Just doing my part in giving it another nudge for I think this is a good idea, sure why not. Always nice to add some humor in with all the serious. Sometimes humor drives home the message that otherwise doesn't get through.

Yes, I also tried to post this today lol. I think it is the best idea I have heard in years with regards to letting these phallic symbols know what we think of them and their denials. I loved the news reports, they were spot on! Signed, twittered and google shared. Thanks Sheryl.

Signed, at first I didn't take this seriously
Good idea, but not helpful. many typhoon Palins will it take before they change their minds, and will it be in time, I doubt it with climate change happening ten times faster than originally thought?

What a clever and effective video! Thanks for sharing it, Dandelion. If devastating hurricanes were named after climate change deniers, I think they'd become believers (or should I say "admit" that they're believers) real fast! Maybe we could name a few after some coal-fired power plants and others after refineries --the industries most responsible for climate change.

Gladly signed and noted.

Scroll down, there is a list of Deniers & Obstructionists - the policy makers who deny climate change and obstruct climate policy. Highlight any name to see the scoreboard for linked representative: their voting record and citation. Some of them give an impression that they can't tie their shoes. Thanks to science they despise, and industrial ingenuity we've got velcro (which is great for kid's shoes, too ).
