About Joel Clement
A Maine native, Clement was a scientist and top policy official at the Department of the Interior working to help Arctic communities endangered by climate change. At the beginning of the Trump administration, he and 50 other officials were reassigned to obscure roles in the agency. Clement subsequently filed a formal disclosure and complaint to the U.S. Office of General Counsel and wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post making his case public.
