Minnesota State Representative Glenn Gruenhagen (R), known for his outrageous statements  about homosexual genetics and welfare as a government scheme to pay black men to impregnate women, has added another notch to his legacy of misinformation.

Citing reliable sources such as CPAC, Gruenhagen outlines how alternative energy is a "disaster" and global warming/climate change is a "lie" and a "conspiracy."

Gruenhagen made these statements Wednesday night on the floor of the Minnesota House:

Ultimately the underlying philosophy that supports all this is the so-called man-made global warming or climate change theory. And the fact is, members, there's more and more evidence coming in that it's just a complete United Nations fraud and lie, okay? The latest facts from CPAC show that in the last 16 years, there's been no global warming. The last 16 years, members...

So members, I'd recommend that you keep breathing, okay? Because, you know, man-made global warming believes that exhaling causes global warming. I mean, the more you study it the more utter nonsense you see it is...

The fact is, members, we're driving up our energy costs. Now, is alternative energy wrong? Not necessarily. How do you know when you're doing it right? When alternative energy brings down the cost of electricity, then you know you're doing it right. Guess what? When the technology is there to bring electricity costs [down], you're not going to have to pass a government mandate. The private market will bring it to the econony, and we'll see lower energy costs and alternative energy...

Every time government get involved in the private sector you can expect two results -- the price of everything goes up and it becomes very inefficient and wasteful.
