Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway are back on the market with their explosive non-fiction MERCHANTS OF DOUBT. Fully titled Merchants of Doubt: How a Handful of Scientists Obscured the Truth on Issues from Tobacco Smoke of Global Warming, the meticulously researched work makes the claim that a handful of conservative scientists with ties to big business have purposefully kept controversial debates about global warming, tobacco smoking, and more alive by deliberately muddling information.
The book, which was published in May, 2010 by Bloomsbury Press, debuted to rave reviews, with former Vice President Al Gore writing, “anyone concerned about the state of democracy in American should read this book.” Both authors come from strong scientific backgrounds. Oreskes is a professor of History and Science Studies at Harvard University while Conway is a historian at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
Previously set up with Participant Media, the book is now available and red hot, currently being shopped to territories. It was also adapted into a documentary of the same name by Emmy-award winning and Oscar-nominated filmmaker Robert Kenner in 2014.
