Dr. Mashey, formerly of Bell Labs, is a Silicon Valley computer scientist and corporate executive. He has spent the last few years investigating the political and economic machinery behind climate anti-science, whose tactics have been honed by aiding tobacco companies for decades. Dr. Mashey has been profiled in Science for his efforts to throw rocks in the gears of the climate anti-science machinery.

The subject will particularly resonate with those who may have read or seen Merchants of Doubt. WHRC will offer a free showing of the documentary on Saturday, August 29 and Sunday, August 30. Please note: Saturday is now full. Reservations are still being accepted for Sunday. See details.
