Trump’s science envoy, a Hillary Clinton appointed UC Berkeley prof, resigns.
Childishly includes embedded message, I-M-P-E-A-C-H, in resignation letter.
The dramatic resignation of the Obama-era holdovers from President Trump’s administration continue, as a UC Berkeley professor who was the science envoy for the State Department officially gave his notice.
A prominent UC Berkeley energy professor resigned his post with the U.S. State Department on Wednesday in response to President Donald Trump’s “attacks on the core values” of the country.
“Your actions to date have, sadly, harmed the quality of life in the United States, our standing abroad, and the sustainability of the planet,” wrote Professor Daniel Kammen in his resignation letter to Trump on Wednesday.
Kammen said he’s served various roles for the federal Environmental Protection Agency, energy and state departments since 1996. He’s stepping down as a science envoy to the Americas, a position he accepted in 2010 under then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to a curriculum vitae posted on a UC Berkeley website.
Reviewing the letter, it seems Kammen felt that the President’s decision to exit the Paris Climate Accord and prioritize valid scientific pollution prevention policies in federally funded environmental research was unacceptable. In a particularly childish and unprofessional move, the first letters of each paragraph in that resignation letters spells IMPEACH.
Mr. President, I am resigning as Science Envoy. Your response to Charlottesville enables racism, sexism, & harms our country and planet. pic.twitter.com/eWzDc5Yw6t

Underscoring my take on the loss of the science envoy, I note that there is so much to savor about Kammen’s resignation:
- Another self-righteous State Department employee is gone.
- Our exiting the Paris Climate Accord inspired this UC Berkeley professor to leave.
- This shows President Trump is angering the right people, with his sensible approach to reducing regulations,
- President Trump’s team has one less Obama holdover.
Marvelously, this was the latest in a spate of dramatic resignations. Last week, 16 members of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities gave their notice.
Actor Kal Penn, a member of the group, shared the resignation letter on Twitter — a sharp rebuke of the President’s response to white nationalist rallies in Charlottesville, Virginia, in which Trump blamed people on “all sides” for the deadly violence and rejected calls to remove divisive Confederate monuments.…As the letter spread through the Internet, many noticed the group used artistic license to drive home its point. The first letter of each paragraph spells out a rallying cry: RESIST.
Update:All members have now resigned. Per @politico, PCAH is an official agency, that makes this the 1st White House department to resign pic.twitter.com/kk7buaVr9G

Patiently I await the next slug of Obama-holdover resignations with great anticipation!
2020‘s race can’t come soon enough. (I hope you all saw what I did here, with the paragraphs I wrote myself!).
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Great! Now to purge the remainder of State and MAGA.
You said it!
No Hillary and Obama sluts left standing!
My apologies to real sluts.
Soon they will all realize that the government will no longer provide welfare to all those college professors.
Bite the hand that feeds……….
If we spent all the 4 year college money on 2 year colleges and enrichment classes we would be a better country. Just think about how much is wasted on scholarships, grants and loans.
Ha Ha, goodbye, Kammen!
We don’t need to pay for no stinking, brain-washing leftist education….. la la la la…..
“Freshman Year for Free
Modern States’ initial program, Freshman Year for Free, is intended to let students earn up to one year of college credit without tuition or textbook expense.”
Well, isn’t that just too precious for words.
When I say that Leftoids have the mental characteristics of 12-year-olds, it’s not hyperbole.
They keep demonstrating it. They really can’t help themselves.
Uh yup, uh yup, uh yup!
Only the cook kids will know this code!!
Boy, we sure did stick it to The Man, speak Truth to Power and otherwise showcase the splendiferous wonderfulness of our awesomely superior intellect.
Tee hee, giggle!
Yuppers. (*shiff*) We sure showed them who are the elite…. or something.
cook ==> cool
I’m pretty sure the guy can be adequately replaced by a mannequin from the men’s clothing department at the nearest Sears store.
Clearly, the resignators in both cases were more interested in politics than the mission of their respective positions.
LOL, we have children employed at the state dept.
Truly. This would explain a lot about the past 8 years.
Gee – where were these allegedly morally upright and outraged officials when St. Obama the Infallible was feting “Black Lives Matter” racists and anti-cop zealots at the White House; when St. Obama was perpetually avoiding unequivocal criticism of the supremacist, totalitarian, anti-gay, anti-women, anti-secular, anti-religious pluralist ideology of “Submission,” with his morally bankrupt, ignorant and contemptible trifecta policy of Islamo-flattery, Islamo-whitewashing and Islamo-victimology; when, further, St. Obama admonished Americans to “get off their high horse” in condemning contemporary Islamic barbarism, given atrocities committed during the Crusades 800 years ago; when Obama granted economic succor and diplomatic legitimacy to the Iranian regime, via his indefensible, irresponsible and self-congratulatory vanity parade, known as the “Iran deal?”
These hypocrites don’t have a leg to stand on with regard to their self-righteous, self-aggrandizing and fatuous moral posturing.
First, what a bunch of babies. Second, good riddance. Third, if not babies then childish. Thinking he is (they are) clever….
1 down… positive progress. n to go.
N-1 to go. If the Progressives consider this regressive… than numerically… it is …. finally.
Too bad, just what our country doesn’t need, another educated idiot! Keep his manicured hands away from our energy, like they ever found any.
Whaddya expect? A product of the Peoples’ Republic of Ithaca.
Yahoo news was flashing this story for about 2 days and positioning it as the Trump administration imploding on itself.
People like this
really don’t deserve approval and from their stupidity
I can infer that they just
keep up with the times.
So, really, they SHOULD just go away.
Do we need to replace them? Why is there a Science Envoy for State?
How much money will this save in not paying a “stipend”, travel and other costs? It’s probably not much, but every little bit helps.
(I hope you all saw what I did here, with the paragraphs I wrote myself!).
You should have made it a comment about this UC Berkeley professor, Leslie.
I can remember when people who were employed by the federal government were employees first and kept their thoughts to them selves. Now it appears obama employed mostly ideologues who had no real skills and made their thoughts known first. Most of them have broken federal laws on personal communications while on duty and have put party before country. Mass resignations would be appreciated by all! One side note is that until more of the second tier people leave, investigations and prosecutions will be almost nil. Sessions should warn all government agencies that ANYONE “Mistakingly” destroying government records will go to prison while awaiting their trial.
Sessions appears to be vanilla
Obama loaded the Federal government with so many progressive it will take 8 years to clean up the mess he left. The federal government was turned into a arm of the left to push crazy progressive ideas.
UC Berkeley professor says it all. Good riddance! Don’t let the door hit you in your arse on the way out! 🙂
When lefists resign from this administration, they must
Have the last word. Because they’re
Out of power, they have only three methods of hitting back:
Childish stunts and statements, sabotage, and terrorist violence.
Asinine, immature and traitorous? Of course it it is.
Rather than make a valid case to the American people and
Earn their trust and their votes, they think that smarmy, childish
Stupidities make an effective case. Why be mature about it
