I’m not a good note taker which is why I thought I would record parts of the conference. After the first panel, I decided to record the entire thing. And Matt Pitzarella of Range Resources (audio files in wmv & mpg) and Matt Carmichael of Anadarko (audio files in wmv & mpg) got caught with their pants down — recommending using military tactics on communities.
Their attempts to spin out of the mess they created has been tragicomic.
So far the responses excuses that Matt Pitzarella has given reporters include:
- The recordings were edited
- It was taken out of context
- I didn’t agree with Matt Carmichael (Anadarko)
- I didn’t know I was being recorded
My responses to his excuses is on EARTHblog.
