Fri., Jan. 20, from 7 - 9 p.m., investigate the science behind our greatest environmental threats with Merchants of Doubt. This satirical comedy will both amuse and illuminate its audiences, unveiling the secretive, silver-tongued group of pundits-for-hire who aim to spread maximum confusion about public threats such as climate change. Inspired by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway’s acclaimed book of the same title, Merchants of Doubt has been dubbed “an intelligent, solidly argued takedown of America’s spin factory” by critics and is sure to spark a stimulating group discussion afterwards. Conversation will be led by a panel of environmental professionals, including City of Pittsburgh’s Senior Resilience Coordinator Rebecca Kiernan and staff from Phipps Conservatory.

Screenings for the Environmental Film Series take place on the third Friday of every month from 7 – 9 p.m. in the Botany Hall Auditorium at Phipps. Attendance to these screenings is free with regular admission, but tickets are required; please pick up your free tickets in the Welcome Center starting at 5 p.m. on the day of the film.
