Have you ever shared your name with a Hurricane? It makes for a rather odd week when Hurricane [Your Name] is churning toward Florida and threatening to destroy it. Well, environmental advocacy group 350.org has come up with a new way to name Hurricanes that would spare people who happened to be named things like Andrew, Wilma and Katrina. They want to name storms after climate change denying politicians like Marco Rubio.
Rubio of course famously attacked Charlie Crist back in his run for Senate for daring to be "a believer in man-made global warming." He claimed there wasn't evidence that man affected global warming. (Though, his stance on the issue has been wishy-washy over time).
The group however thinks it would be more appropriate if we saw headlines like "Marco Rubio Leaves Five Dead in Hispaniola."

It's a bit of an over-the-top tactic, but clearly meant to be tongue in cheek.
