Salt Lake City, Utah – Historian Naomi Oreskes says that while the U.S. scientific community has led the world in research on issues like public health and environmental science, there's also a small group of scientists that mislead the public with ideas based on political agendas rather than science. Oreskes has written a book that explores how this has skewed our understanding of climate change, tobacco and more. Naomi Oreskes is coming to Utah and Thursday she joins Doug to talk about these "Merchants of Doubt."

  • On Monday, February 28, Naomi Oreskes will speak at the University of Utah's Wallace Stegner Center. The reading begins at 12:15 p.m. and is free and open to the public. It will be held in the S.J. Quinney College of Law's Sutherland Moot Courtroom [map]. For more information, click here or call 801-585-3440.
