South Australians have rolling blackouts because they don’t have enough energy to power their homes and businesses. Australia made catastrophic renewable policies that were endorsed by Al Gore. Gore considers Australia as a climate world leader.
I’m sure he’d be happy if the lights were off in the whole world — except for his mansions.

Donald Trump ‘isolated’ on climate change: Al Gore says rest of world moving on without US President
7.30 By Callum Denness
The United States will meet or exceed its Paris Agreement emissions targets despite an increasingly isolated President Donald Trump withdrawing from the accord, former vice-president Al Gore says.
In Australia to promote his latest film, An Inconvenient Sequel, the climate campaigner and one-time presidential candidate said Mr Trump was out of step domestically and internationally.
“The country as a whole is going to meet the commitments of the Paris Agreement, regardless of what Donald Trump says or does,” Mr Gore told 7.30.
Disputing the argument renewable energy is less reliable and more expensive than conventional power sources, Mr Gore praised South Australia’s recently struck deal to build a battery storage facility with Tesla.
“The electricity from both solar and wind continues to come down every single year. And the new historic development is battery storage is coming down significantly in cost,” Mr Gore said.
“And this historic announcement that South Australia is leading the entire world with the installation of the largest battery in the world, it will be the first of many to come.”
