The activist group 350 Action and advertiser Barton F. Graf 9000 created a video suggesting that rather than naming hurricanes and tropical storms after various innocent men and women, the World Meteorological Association should name dangerous storms after climate change deniers in government.

Science has ably demonstrated that climate change is causing more severe weather incidents that occur more often. And yet, conservative lawmakers continue to deny and obstruct any efforts to change U.S. environmental policy.

For instance, how about a Hurricane Marco Rubio? Or as one emergency official in the video warned, “If you value your life, please seek shelter from Michele Bachmann.”
