Ever wonder why people don’t believe climate change is a real threat?
Merchants of Doubt tells the story of how a small group of politically connected scientists have used public relations tactics to deliberately mislead the public and prevent government regulation of the fossil fuel and other industries. The movie is based on the book of the same name by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway.
Peter Frumhoff, Director of Science and Policy at the Union of Concerned Scientists and participant in the recent Paris climate talks will introduce the film and lead the discussion that will follow.
You will also have an opportunity to meet representatives of community groups involved in combating climate change.
