Support the Petition to Name Storms After Climate Change Deniers

A petition is circulating to change the naming system for tropical storms and hurricanes. Currently the World Meteorological Society gives storms the names of people. Those names however are fairly random and the people storms are named after have done nothing to earn the dubious honor. The folks at Climate Name Change have a fantastic suggestion: Start naming storms that are caused (or at least greatly strengthened) by climate change after people who still deny that climate change is happening or deny that humans are the primary cause of it. The video below will explain it better. climatenamechange.org to sign and/or share the petition.
