Merchants of Doubt
How a Handful of Scientists Obscured the Truth on Issues from Tobacco Smoke to Global Warming

Oreskes, Naomi; Conway, Erik M.
Publisher:  Bloomsbury
Year Published:  2012   First Published:  2010
Pages:  368pp   ISBN:  9781408824832
Investigative reportage on how private interests and lobbies in America use hired gun scientists to spread doubt and misinformation. The media's binary understanding of balanced repoting has given these individuals a soapbox and allowed the public to believe there are divisions in the mainstream scientific opinion on global warming where none exist.
