Hurricanes Deserve A Bad Name

An unlikely weather title? Or an apt political statement? (image source: The Climate Name Change video)

Everyone knows that climate change is one of the major challenges, if not crises, of our time. Well, not everyone does. Some people think it’s all nonsense, blowing the trumpet of resistance and stating publicly that we should go about our affairs as usual.

The producers of the following video clip have a great idea of how to address this madness. They propose a new hurricane-naming system that will point out those who stand against policies that address climate change.

People of the earth, watch out for…

Coming soon to a city near you!

It may also cause uncontrollable LOLs, severe skin crawling, and extreme weather conditions brought to you by the subjects of Convenience, Economy, and the Lord Almighty whose appeasement they seek by going against His (Hers? Its? Our?) very nature.)
