When: Tuesday, 2/9, 4:30pm
Where: Biomed, D207
What: We are going to be showing Merchants of Doubt: <http://sonyclassics.com/merchantsofdoubt/>
"Inspired by the acclaimed book by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway, MERCHANTS
OF DOUBT takes audiences on a satirically comedic, yet illuminating ride
into the heart of conjuring American spin. Filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the
curtain on a secretive group of highly charismatic, silver- tongued
pundits-for-hire who present themselves in the media as scientific
authorities - yet have the contrary aim of spreading maximum confusion about
well-studied public threats ranging from toxic chemicals to pharmaceuticals
to climate change."
We will have snacks kindly supported by the Student Activity and Program Fee Board.
