Joel Clement recently resigned his post as a senior Department of Interior official over the suppression of facts about implications of climate change on human populations. He cited the department’s  “poor leadership, waste, and failures on climate change.”

“I am a scientist, a policy expert, a civil servant and a worried citizen. Reluctantly, as of today, I am also a whistleblower on an administration that chooses silence over science.”
