The reasoning behind environmental advocacy group 350 Action's proposal is as follows: before 2005, the name Katrina was quite popular for baby girls. After 2005, the name has seen a massive decrease in popularity, with similar phenomena happening to the names Hugo and Sandy. Instead of unfairly stigmatizing people who have been stuck with these names prior to Mother Nature Adolfing the crap out of them, why not name the storms after the people who indirectly help create them? The petition currently has 92,300 signatures; could the gulf coast be staring down Hurricane Michelle Bachmann in the coming years? Possibly.
