BILL McKIBBEN’S GREAT IDEA

Start naming Hurricanes after oil companies.

The fossil fuel companies have played the biggest role in making sure we don’t slow global warming down. They’ve funded climate denial propagandists and helped pack Congress with anti-environmental extremists, making sure that commonsense steps to move toward renewable energy never happen. So maybe it’s only right that we should honour their efforts by naming storms for them from now on. At the very least it’s fun to imagine the newscasters announcing, “Exxon is coming ashore across New Jersey, leaving havoc in her wake”, or “Chevron forces evacuation of 375,000″.

    LOVE IT! Who knows how to make a petition at change.org?

    We could alternate years and use anti-science obstructionist climate-change-denying GOP U.S. Senators (sore for the redundancy). Hurricane McConnell, Hurricane Inhofe, Hurricane McCain, Hurricane Coburn, Hurricane Paul, Hurricane Cornyn, etc.
