A thought-provoking series of free public lectures with Naomi Oreskes, Professor of History & Science Studies, University of California, San Diego, and co-author of the new book Merchants of Doubt: How a handful of scientists obscured the truth on issues from tobacco smoke to global warming. In these lectures, Naomi discusses her latest book (co-authored with Erik M. Conway), as she rolls back the rug on a dark corner of the American scientific community, showing how ideology and corporate interests, aided by a too-compliant media, have skewed public understanding of the some of the most pressing issues of our time, including climate change.
