“Climate Name Change” Turns Delusional Politicians Into Natural Disasters
To bring attention to the widespread apathy toward climate change, nonprofit group 350action and agency Barton F. Graf 9000 got a little personal. Tapping into the meteorological legacy of naming hurricanes after people — thereby marring the good names of unsuspecting Sandys, Irenes and Katrinas everywhere — “Climate Name Change” told the same storm story, but subbed in the name of prominent politicians who refuse to acknowledge climate change. So instead of citizen anger being directed at a whirl of wind and rain named Sandy, people could direct their ire at Michelle Bachman, a known climate change denier. The result is deadpan and absurd, but pointed in its attack.

Awesome. Where’s the petition I can sign?
