You have to laugh, there’s some serious conspiracy ideation going on here, and precious little science.:
When I wrote the book Merchants of Doubt in 2010, I only wanted one thing: to uncover the truth about who was behind the widespread, and sadly, effective, campaigns to undermine the established science of climate change, and why they were doing what they were doing.
I never imagined that, a few years later, Sony Pictures would release Merchants of Doubt, a captivating feature film that exposes the ugly world of climate denial like never before.
Thousands are about to see this movie, and when they do, they’ll be fired
up and anxious to take action — let’s make sure they do. Together,
let’s create a surge of people power strong enough to bring down climate
Watch and share the trailer for Merchants of Doubt, and then tell your

Forecast the Facts members were way ahead of the game in recognizing and
exposing climate denial. Your very mission speaks to heart of the problem:
disinformation. Many Americans still believe that there is “no solid”
evidence of global warming — a result of the organized and well-funded
campaign to confuse the public on climate. Worse, a powerful portion of
our political leadership continues to promote the canard that there’s no
consensus, we don’t really know, and therefore we can’t do anything.
Merchants of Doubt is about to spread our message wider than ever
before. The national premieres begin next week — now’s the time to really
build the buzz.
