TW Film- Merchants of Doubt at Limelight

April 28, 2015 from 6:30pm to 8pm
Inspired by the acclaimed book by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway, Merchants of Doubt takes audiences on a satirically comedic, yet illuminating ride into the heart of conjuring American spin. Documentarian Robert Kenner lifts the curtain on a secretive group of highly charismatic, silver-tongued pundits-for-hire who present themselves in the media as scientific authorities – yet have the contrary aim of spreading maximum confusion about well-studied public threats ranging from toxic chemicals to…See More

Hi Hank,

Do you do repairs on lawn mowers? It seems I saw you post something about that a while back.

We have an electric mower that seems sluggish. It also needs it's blades sharpened. Give me a call if you do that kind of work.

Thanks,

Hank, I'm responding as a member of the Personal Finance workgroup.  Over the past few years we've covered a lot of ground, most notably a "move your money" campaign.  We also spun off a group called Whatcom Investing Network.  We loan money to local businesses.  Our website is whatcominvesting.com.  We have a meeting tonight at Resources.  We have an orientation at 6 and meeting at 7.  Details are on our website under "Events".  If you post your interests on the Personal Finance workgroup page, you may find folks with common interests.  Judith Culver
