Naming Hurricanes after Politicians

An environmental website called 350.org has proposed that the World Meteorological Association start naming hurricanes after politicians who don't believe in the climate change fairy tale.

"RICK PERRY LEAVES TRAIL OF DEATH" reads one chyron banner in 350.org's fantasy hurricane coverage.

This could be from the comedy site, The Onion, but it's the real deal:

Pity there haven't been any hurricanes this year for them to re-name.

Pity? Yes, it's a great disappointment to this religious movement so in need of an apocalypse, a savior, and the forgiveness of their carbon sins through indulgences called carbon credits.

The Houston Chronicle reports the bad news:

"For the first time in 11 years, August came and went without a single hurricane forming in the Atlantic. The last intense hurricane (Category 3 or above) to hit the United States was Hurricane Wilma, in 2005. According to Phil Klotzbach, head of Colorado State University's seasonal hurricane forecast, accumulated cyclone energy is 70 percent below normal this year."

NOAA predicted 20 named storms this year. Twenty? There have been seven so far, and none have been hurricanes.
