Congratulations to Naomi Oreskes


Naomi OreskesNCSE is pleased to congratulate Naomi Oreskes, Professor of the History of Science at Harvard University and a member of NCSE's board of directors, on receiving a fellowship from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. The fellowships are "intended for individuals who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts," and the foundation notes of Oreskes that "[s]ince the early 2000s, she has been a leading public voice on the issue of anthropogenic climate change." Also receiving a Guggenheim Fellowship was Erik M. Conway, with whom Oreskes coauthored Merchants of Doubt: How a Handful of Scientists Obscured the Truth on Issues from Tobacco to Global Warming (2010).
