Movie Night: Merchants of Doubt

Movie Night: Merchants of Doubt

  • SixTwelve

Merchants of Doubt
(movie starts at 7:30 pm) 
Presented free thanks to Citizens' Climate Lobby of Oklahoma City
Co-sponsored by SixTwelve and the Sierra Club Cimarron Group

Inspired by the acclaimed book by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway, Merchants of Doubt takes audiences on a satirically comedic, yet illuminating ride into the heart of conjuring American spin. Documentarian Robert Kenner ("Food, Inc.") lifts the curtain on a secretive group of highly charismatic, silver-tongued pundits-for-hire who present themselves in the media as scientific authorities - yet have the contrary aim of spreading maximum confusion to both the public and policy makers about well-studied public threats ranging from cigarette smoke to toxic chemicals to climate change. The central concern of the film is the ongoing use of these tactics to forestall governmental action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in response to the threat of global warming.

Rated PG-13 (for brief strong language)

Citizens' Climate Lobby will present information on local and national action you can take to combat the devastating effects of climate change.

Inquiry is a major buzz word in education right now - but what is it? And can you do it at home? Of course! Inquiry is a fancy word for an in-depth investigation that begins when a person has a question. "What do roly-poly's eat?" The process of finding out may take you to building a habitat. That's an inquiry project, finding out more and discovering new things. Through this workshop you will learn about inquiry projects that have been done in classrooms and gain practical knowledge on how to do inquiry at home!

This workshop is free and geared toward parents of children 3-8 years old.
