Vote! #RenameHagupit

Typhoon Hagupit is barreling toward the Philippines, a year almost to the day since supertyphoon Haiyan killed thousands and devastated an entire city. While we can’t directly attribute any one superstorm to climate change, we do know that the strongest typhoons are getting stronger.

Climate change isn’t the Philippines’ fault, but its people are losing their livelihoods and paying for the clean-up. And it’s not just a chance of nature: detailed research has shown that 90 Big Polluters, including coal, oil, and gas companies, are responsible for nearly two-thirds of carbon emissions.

Now it’s time for the world’s leaders and the media to start calling the problem by its real name: let’s name the typhoon after one of the biggest companies making a fortune from killing the climate. The more people vote, the more people will know what we should really be calling this supertyphoon.

Vote now to help choose the name of the typhoon and share this with all your friends!
