When the revolution comes, a solid argument could be made that the first against the wall should be the lobbyists, the pundits, and the scientists-for-hire. As illustrated by Merchants of Doubt, these are the assholes who have delayed us in—if not entirely kept us from—addressing issues ranging from smoking to climate change. These intellectual mercenaries make for fascinating, horrifyingly influential subjects. Too bad, then, that Merchants ends up mimicking one of the tactics of its subjects: It livens things up to the point of distraction.
