February Fourth Friday – Merchants of Doubt – plus special guest

NOTE THE SPECIAL TIME: 7PM, FEBRUARY 26

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, 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. Click to view the trailer.

Introducing the movie and answering questions will be Dr. Phillip Duffy, President and Executive Director of the Woods Hole Research Center, an internationally renowned climate research facility on Cape Cod, Massachusetts.  Dr. Duffy attended the Paris Climate Summit in November.
