On Nov. 5 at 3 p.m., Brown Memorial’s “Green Team” will present a free screening of “Merchants of Doubt,” a 2014 documentary that exposes highly orchestrated PR efforts to debunk climate change to protect corporate profits. As one reviewer noted, “You leave, as you do any good muckraking documentary, both fascinated and enraged.”
After the screening, join a panel of climate scientists and environmental journalists to further explore climate change issues and discuss ways to promote church- and community-based efforts to protect the environment.
Memorial Episcopal and Corpus Christ churches are sponsoring this event in partnership with Brown Memorial.
