Penn State Berks co-hosts viewing of “Merchants of Doubt”

As part of its sustainability initiatives, the Penn State Berks Sustainability Team along with the local Kittatinny Sierra Club will host a public viewing of the film Merchants of Doubt on Thursday, December 3, 2015, at 6 p.m. in the Perkins Student Center Auditorium. The film will be followed by a panel discussion composed of Penn State Berks faculty and students, as well as members of Kittatinny Sierra Club and the Nolde Environmental Education Center. This event is free and open to the public.

Merchants of Doubt is a documentary that looks at pundits-for-hire who present themselves as scientific authorities as they speak about topics like toxic chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and climate change.

This event is supported by the Howard O., Jr., and Jean S. Beaver Endowment for Guest Lecturers at Berks Campus. For more information, contact Dr. Mahsa Kazempour, Associate Professor of Science Education, at 610-396-6312 or via email at [email protected].
