Promised Land quotes Range Resources’ Matt Pitzarella

by TXsharon on January 6, 2013

in Promised Land., PSYOPS, Range Resources

Edit (I just noticed that the first part of my first sentence disappeared. I am keeping my son’s dogs and all the dog wrangling has me distracted. The edited part is in bold.)

Promised Land used an adapted quote from Matt Pitzarella, Director of Corporate Comms and Public Affairs, Range Resources, that I taped at the industry PSYOPS conference.

I don’t want to give away too much from the movie but be listening for this:

From Promised Land: “You’re at the big kids’ table.”

From Pitzarella’s presentation at the industry PSYOPS conference:  “You have to have a seat at the grown up table.”  LISTEN

On my 2nd viewing of this movie, I see that they did cover the PSYOPS issue and they probably listened to at least one of the tapes.

It is absolutely chilling to hear him talk about PSYOPS operations in local communities in this manner — no conscience, no concern about whether it’s right or wrong, just do it. Like slapping mosquitoes. How could anyone think it’s wrong?

Conservatives are claiming that Oil Boom in the Americas means weakening of OPEC’s power.

They are dead wrong.

In 2012, OPEC earned a record $1.05 trillion in oil revenues.

Americans paid the highest average price ever for gasoline in 2012.

The national average price of gasoline in 2012 was $3.63 a gallon.

OPEC & America are kinda of enmeshed.

Saudi Arabia Investing $109 Billion Into Solar Energy, Wants 1/3 Of Electricity From Solar By 2032

Doing so will free up larger quantities of its reserves for international sales rather than for use domestically. With the price of oil expected to rise significantly in the coming decades, such a move makes sense from an economic standpoint.

In 2012, Newt Gingrich promised the prospect of gas as low as $2 a gallon if he’s elected.

Michele Bachmann promised the same thing.

That is absolutely impossible.

A gallon of gasoline costs $2 when oil goes to $40 a barrel.

But, outside the Middle East, new drillings make economic sense as long as oil prices remain above $70-$80 a barrel.

Bernstein Research estimated that the marginal cost of supply – the cost of production for the most expensive new fields – rose to $92 a barrel on average in 2011.

So oil will remain expensive for ever and gasoline prices are unlikely to fall under $3 a gallon

It’s under 3$ a gallon in NM.
