Eric Lipton article in Friday's New York Times about a Richard Berman speech to the Western Energy Alliance that was secretly recorded. He recommends an all-out, personal assault on environmentalists--digging up things to embarrass them publicly--as a central part of the lobbying strategy for the oil and gas industry. Couple that with the long Times piece earlier this week on state attorneys general essentially trading away public interest litigation for campaign contributions (highly recommended) and it makes for a discouraging Halloween. Minnesota does not show up in either article, and I hope we can maintain a higher standard, but we cannot be naive about what might come.
