Joel Clement is a Senior Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School with a background in resilience and climate change adaptation, landscape-scale conservation and management, and Arctic social-ecological systems. Prior to joining the Kennedy School, Mr. Clement served as an executive for seven years at the US Department of the Interior. In July, 2017, he became the first public whistleblower of the Trump Administration, accusing Secretary Zinke of stifling science, ignoring climate change, wasting taxpayer dollars, and risking the health and safety of Americans in the Arctic. He was awarded The Joe A. Callaway Award for Civic Courage and resigned from public service in October of that year. Since then he has been on a national speaking tour and has received multiple awards for ethics, courage, and his dedication to the role of science in public policy. In addition to his role at Harvard, he is an Associate with the Stockholm Environmental Institute and a Senior Fellow with the Union of Concerned Scientists.
