Naomi Oreskes on Tobacco, Climate, and the Merchants of Doubt
April 24, 2016
Science historian Naomi Oreskes plays a role in my most recent video “Surveilling the Scientists” – and I took the opportunity to pull out some more clips from our 2014 interview in San Francisco. Oreskes tries to shed some light on the motivations for the “Merchants of Doubt” – a cabal of scientists so wedded to the paranoid right wing vision of a Cold War world, that they were blind to the emerging science of a Warming one.
Below, more details from the Merchants of Doubt movie.
