Film Screening: Merchants of Doubt
Starts: Monday, Feb 29
Ends: Monday, Feb 29 - 9:00 pm
Location: Newton Free Library, 330 Homer St, Newton, MA 02459, United States
Description: Are you confused by conflicting
reports that are presented by
the media on environmental
issues? Join us for a screening
of Merchants of Doubt.

The film is based on the
celebrated book by Naomi
Oreskes and Erik Conway, and
reveals the truth behind the
secretive and charismatic
pundits-for-hire who present
themselves in the media as
scientific authorities. They
only succeed in spreading
maximum confusion about
well-studied public threats
from toxic chemicals and
pharmaceuticals to climate
change.

The film will be followed by
commentary by Dan Ruben,
Chairman of the Board of Green
Newton and Executive Director
of Boston Green Tourism.
