Austin, TX (eTruePolitics) – Following Texas governor Greg Abbott’s claim that the current weather crisis in the Lone Star State was caused by the “Green New Deal,”  the International Flat Earth Society canceled Abbott’s planned keynote address at the organization’s 2021 National Convention in Phoenix.

“The Flat Earth Society cannot afford to be embarrassed,” said newly hired Flat Earth spokesperson, Kayleigh McEnany.

“I am terribly disappointed in the IFES,” said Abbott who reiterated that he would continue to follow the organization’s safety protocols.

“My wheel chair is always at least six feet from the earth’s edge and that will never change,” pledged Abbott, who was paralyzed from the waist down after a jogging accident in 1984.
