HiCAN Book Group discusses Merchants of Doubt

The book group met on 28th Jan and were appalled by the revelations in the Merchants of Doubt about the tactics from American ‘scientists’ to systematically discredit findings of damage on several fronts.

Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway expose the techniques adopted by a small number of Americans, backed by commercial interests to spread misinformation and pseudo science regarding tobacco smoke, DDT, acid rain and now Global Warming.
