Winter storm Cato — the one that’s ruining all of our Thanksgiving travel plans right now — happens to share a name with a prominent libertarian think tank. But the D.C.-based group is not at all upset by this coincidence: “Proud to be part of a largely classical list that has included Atlas, Athena, Vulcan, Hercules, Gandolf, Eris, and Juno,” Cato Institute VP David Boaz told Bloomberg in an email. Apparently, he’s also proud to employ climate-change skeptic Pat Michaels, who’s hard at work making sure that all sorts of storms will only get worse in the years to come.
