@Jo Nova: ABC comedy, the jokes on you — Here’s to a holiday on stained mattr­esses in the back yard

Thank the ABC. This is the best comedy I’ve seen them do on “climate change” — albeit unwitti­ngly.  The ABC has a new comedy show on Wednesday nights called RoadMap to Paradise.

This is Big-​Gover­nment Comedy. You’ll swear this was made by a skeptic. No really.
