Directly after the 2017 UN Conference on Climate Change in Bonn, Joel Clement, environmental scientist and former employee of the Department of the Interior, shares his story about resigning and filing a whistleblower complaint against the Trump Administration's actions of suddenly relocating over 50 employees.

Following Clement's account is a conversation about climate change policy with environmental scientists H. Curtis Spalding, Professor at Brown University, and Andrew Rosenberg, Director for Science and Democracy at Union of Concerned Scientists. This talk is moderated by Timothy Weiskeli.
