Taxpayers Outraged After The Australian Government Agrees To Pay Global Warming Wizard Al Gore $320K To Conduct ‘Climate Training’ For Low-Information Liberals
Snake oil salesman and global warming wizard Al Gore has once again found a willing sucker, this time the land of down under, Australia.

In 2019, not only did the seas not rise, there is more polar ice than ever before. Things did not get much better in 2017, when Gore released his ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ sequel and deceptively rewrote his original failed prophecy about New York being taken over by rising sea levels, and saying that it had, in fact, come true. P.T. Barnum never had such chutzpah.
