Shulman Hits Garrett on Warming

Dennis Shulman has ratcheted up his criticism of Representative Scott Garrett on the environment. The Shulman campaign started a new website in an effort to get Garrett to acknowledge global warming is a threat. They also put up a video of Garrett, apparently at the State Fair, being asked why he voted to remove language from a bill saying global warming is a problem.

Back in December, Garrett was quoted by the Record regarding his view on global warming:
Asked if Tuesday's recommendations seemed feasible, Rep. Scott Garrett, R-Wantage, would say only that he will "consider all sources" in the global warming debate.
For a guy that went to law school to be an environmental lawyer, one would hope he'd have more discerning research habits. "All sources" includes the fantasy "Day After Tomorrow" on one side and reports from scientists that have been paid to dispute global warming on the other. Even President Bush has acknowledged climate change is a problem, two years ago, before Garrett voted to strip the language.

It will be interesting to see how Garrett's campaign spins this challenge, if they even acknowledge it.
