Local Politician On YouTube 22 May 13

A YouTube video that is growing in popularity consists of what many say is just the latest outrageous statement from Republican State Representative Glenn Gruenhagen of Glencoe. The video is of Gruenhagen’s House floor speech last week against funding an increase in alternative energy use in Minnesota. Among other things, he claims that the human-caused increase in carbon dioxide is actually good for the planet. Gruenhagen mentions reliable sources like the Conservative Political Action Conference as he outlines how alternative energy is a “disaster” and global warming/climate change is a “complete United Nations fraud and lie.” The video can be viewed here:  http://youtu.be/gDkGfO0BopE
