Trump regime demotes climate scientist who spoke out

NPR -A former head policy adviser at the Interior Department is accusing the Trump Administration of reassigning him to a lesser position for speaking out about the dangers of climate change.

Joel Clement, a scientist who was director of the Interior Department's Office of Policy Analysis for much of the Obama Administration, was recently reassigned to work to an "accounting office," the agency's Office of Natural Resources and Revenue.

In an op-ed published Wednesday in The Washington Post, he wrote that he believes he was retaliated against for "speaking out publicly about the dangers that climate change poses to Alaska Native communities." He says that he's turning whistleblower on an administration that "chooses silence over science."

Wow--what a coward. There used to be something called "resigning on principle," as a handful of American diplomats did in the run up to Bush's Iraq War crime. Put your money where your mouth is, snowflake. Otherwise, you doth protest too much.
