Would you like a FREE, healthy, gourmet dinner this week and gain some knowledge! Come take a break from work and/or school and watch the mind blowing documentary "Merchants of Doubt" at San Jose State University on Wednesday, December 7th at 6pm in the Student Union meeting room 1a and 1b.

What is it about?

Now a powerful documentary from the acclaimed director of Food Inc., Merchants of Doubt tells the controversial story of how a loose-knit group of high-level scientists and scientific advisers, with deep connections in politics and industry, ran effective campaigns to mislead the public and deny well-established scientific knowledge over four decades. The same individuals who claim the science of global warming is "not settled" have also denied the truth about studies linking smoking to lung cancer, coal smoke to acid rain, and CFCs to the ozone hole. "Doubt is our product," wrote one tobacco executive. These "experts" supplied it.
