Dale Spurlock, of Shirland, said he believes global warming is a complete hoax, and just another way for the government to find ways to pass on taxes.
“It’s just bologna,” he said.
Spurlock said Al Gore’s film “The Inconvenient Truth” was filled with misinformation. He said glaciers melt every year and it’s part of a natural cycle. He said the polar bear population isn’t decreasing, adding the heating and cooling of the earth happens because of natural occurences such as the sun, ocean and gravitational forces.
“The Earth warms and cools periodically and always has. What man is doing has very little impact on global warming,” he said.
Spurlock said the Earth is actually entering a cooling state, with an increasing number of glaciers and cooler and longer winters.
