Naomi Oreskes’ research
focuses on the earth and environmental
sciences, with a
particular interest in understanding
and dissent. Her 2004 essay
“The Scientific Consensus
on Climate Change” (Science
306: 1686) has been widely
cited, both in the United States and abroad, including in the
Royal Society’s publication, “A Guide to Facts and Fictions
about Climate Change," in the Academy-award winning film,
An Inconvenient Truth, and in Ian McEwan’s novel, Solar.
Her 2010 book, Merchants of Doubt: How a Handful of
Scientists Obscured the Truth on Issues from Tobacco to Global
Warming, co-authored with Erik M. Conway, received the
2011 Watson-Davis Prize from the History of Science Society.
