On March 19 I invited MUUSJA folks to join a viewing and discussion of the documentary 'Merchants of Doubt' that I'm hosting for folks from MN350 and MN Interfaith Power & Light. I've now selected Saturday, April 12, as the date for the event to avoid any conflict with Easter weekend. Presently the film is screening at 1:45 pm at the Edina Cinema. (If that changes, I'll let everyone know.) We'll meet in the lobby at 1:30. Afterwards we'll troop over to the community room at the Lunds located at 3945 West 50th Street, which I've reserved for 4:00-7:00. If you come just for the discussion, please park in the ramp, not the store lot. The store has a Big Bowl Chinese Express as well as the usual assortment of foods for those who get hungry. We'll be using a study guide developed in conjunction with the documentary. Here's the link: http://www.poynter.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/2014-03-06-Merchants-of-Doubt-College-Study-Guide1.pdf. It has nine discussion sections with short supporting clips. My pedagogically sophisticated approach will be to start at the beginning and barrel through to the end. If any section speaks to you and you feel moved to lead the discussion on that point, feel free to let me know or to barge right in during the discussion. In September 2013 Greenpeace put out an expose called *Dealing in Doubt: The* *Climate Denial Machine Vs Climate Science*. Here's the link: http://www.greenpeace.org/usa/Global/usa/report/Dealing%20in%20Doubt%202013%20-%20Greenpeace%20report%20on%20Climate%20Change%20Denial%20Machine.pdf. It is a useful adjunct to the book and documentary. I know it is long (though not as long as the book); feel free to peruse it if you have the time and inclination. If you've already seen the documentary, feel free to come for the discussion only. Alternatively, feel free to come for the documentary and skip the discussion. The community room seats 20-25; I hope a gaggle of climate warriors will drop on by. Scott Jackson sjackzen46 [at] gmail.com
