X: Malcolm's Final Years

Movie -- Merchants of Doubt
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. Filmmaker 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 pharmaceuticals to climate change.

The Ancient Ocean on Mars
A team of researchers at Nasa's Goddard Space Flight Center have used infrared telescopes on Earth to study water molecules in the Martian atmosphere. The findings indicate that as much of 20 per cent of the surface Mars was covered by an ancient ocean.

School to Prison Pipeline

Learn about how the School to Prison Pipeline works, its destructive consequences for students, and how educators and communities can work together to fix it in the NYCLU's latest episode of Project Liberty.
