The formal program for New Horizons in Science program and ScienceWriters2015 wraps with a screening of a documentary that asks whether the U.S. public, journalists and policymakers have been taken in by a corporate spin machine bent on shaping the debate over climate change. Naomi Oreskes, co-author of the book on which the film is based, has drawn comparisons with the tobacco industry's manipulation of the cigarette-cancer story. She will join us for a short follow-up discussion. Social media handle: @MerchantsDoubt
