Hurricane Michele Bachmann? Groups Hope to Name Storms After Climate-Change Deniers

Hurricane Michele Bachmann? Groups Hope to Name Storms After Climate-Change Deniers

National Journal Alex Brown 5 hours ago

If a pair of environmental groups get their way, Hurricane Michele Bachmann or Tropical Storm John Boehner could be the next storms threatening to wreak havoc on the U.S.

A new petition, proposed by Project Name Change and 350+ Action Fund, seeks to name storms after politicians who the groups say deny climate change. The groups' website provides a list of the targeted politicians.

Of course, it is unlikely that the World Meteorological Organization will change its naming practices, but the petition has garnered almost 49,000 signatures.

A video touting the plan shows mocked-up weather reports warning that "Marco Rubio is expected to pound the Eastern Seaboard" and "David Vitter is literally lifting boats out of the water and tossing them onto land." The levees "built to stop Hurricane Collin Peterson have been obliterated," says another report.

Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., one of Congress's most outspoken deniers of global warming, was a major target. "An entire nation is wondering how they'll ever recover from the disaster that is James Inhofe," the video's somber news anchor intones.

Do Marxists ever pass up an opportunity to express their hatred of the common people and those who dare disagree with them? The very ferocity of their insistence upon their own superiority tells me they know as well as we it's false.

And while we’re at it, let’s name epic wildfires, like the one raging in Yosemite, after the enviro-wackos who cause them by preventing the forests from being cleared of underbrush.

Something that we have said or done has triggered their fight or flight emotion.

We have hit an emotional weak spot!

We need the Conservative Pack to keep circling the Libs, and then pick off the weak ones as they stumble through the field that we call REALITY.

I agree in principle, Graewoulf, but must confess I'm a little leery. According to Frisky the wonder tigress, it might be okay to turn Marxists into dog food, but no self-respecting can would so much as consider eating those [fill in the blank].

I have no objections to baiting, shining, or sport hunting.

That’s right. I’ve read a number of books about pioneer days in Illinois. There were some amazing stories about dangerously severe weather here, both hot and cold. In fact, one speculated that bison may have been wiped out in Illinois by a massive snowfall so deep that they either starved or got stuck and died. Bison have not been seen in Illinois for over 200 years, but bones have been found.

Whenever I hear the man-made climate change people talk as if the weather has been mild up to now, I wonder if they have ever studied history.

I hope you understand their “stance” has nothing to do with climate or history.

It’s all about taxation and control. The idiots that buy into it are just that, idiots.

So just name the upcoming Global Ice Age after His Supreme Highness, King Barack Canute Obama....

Welcome King Barack "Canute" Obama the Great.....

...Obama issues an Executive Order to the Sun...

....to increase it's magnetic field....

and make a good crop of sunspots before elections in 2016....

(PhysOrg.com) -- Sunspot formation is triggered by a magnetic field, which scientists say is steadily declining. They predict that by 2016 there may be no remaining sunspots, and the sun may stay spotless for several decades.

The last time the sunspots disappeared altogether was in the 17th and 18th century, and coincided with a lengthy cool period on the planet known as the Little Ice Age....and lasted 400 years.

Good luck surviving with no electricity and GE modified seeds.

The northern warm water flow from the Atlantic has decreased or stopped, look at the cold winters in England. If anyone has evidence that it’s still flowing, I’d love to see it. Hope you look very longingly for your hurricanes...

Just wait, the earth is tipping and its screwing things up. Ask Al he is betting everything on the global pole shift,

Or you will be cold, they always miss those people.

Sure. I am open to the idea of climate change, since I know from reading history and science that the climate does change. I am not terribly alarmed about it because I don’t believe human activity caused it or that human activity can stop it. One would think that the information we do have about past climate change would factor into the discussion, although for the fanatics for whom this is almost a religion, this has no influence. So it does go back, as you say, to taxation and control. I remember someone saying, “Green is the new Red.”
