Bill Read, a former director of the National Hurricane Center from 2008-2012, isn’t convinced the gender of the storm name is as big a factor in storm fatalities as the study purports.

Maybe we should try giving hurricanes pet names for a few years:

Tropical Storm Mr. Whiskers

Hurricane Rover

Typhoon Lucky


War:

Let's name hurricanes after terrible things like: Hurricane Comcast, Typhoon Volkswagen, Tropical Storm J.P. Morgan.
