Our April book is Merchants of Doubt: How a Handful of Scientists Obscured the Truth on Issues from Tobacco Smoke to Global Warming. The subtitle says it all! Authors Erik Conway and Naomi Oreskes reveal how conservative-leaning scientists used and continue to use their success in raising doubt around the safety of tobacco use as a method to promote their views in other contexts, including in the climate change arena. At 274 pages, Merchants of Doubt is an enlightening and thought-provoking read.
