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 the British Academy Medal, for her books (coauthored with Erik M. Conway) Merchants of Doubt (2010) and The Collapse of Western Civilization (2014), and for "her commitment to documenting the role of corporations in distorting scientific findings for political ends." The president of the British Academy, David Cannadine, commented, "At a time of fake news and the distrust of experts and expertise, there can surely be no better time to acclaim and applaud those who are standing up for truth and evidence."
