Big news! Clovis is out | Pesticide Action Network

Sam Clovis — controversial nominee for the top scientist post at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) — withdrew his name from consideration today. Clovis has come under increasing scrutiny for his inflammatory statements and lack of science credentials, going so far as to decry climate change research as “junk science” that is “not proven.” On top of being clearly unqualified for the position, news came to light this week that Clovis may also have contributed to Russia’s interference in last year’s presidential election.
