Daniel Kammen isn’t much for subtlety.
In resigning his post as the State Department’s science envoy, Kammen made a little acrostic, apparently giving a one-word instruction for Congress.
Mr. President, I am resigning as Science Envoy. Your response to Charlottesville enables racism, sexism, & harms our country and planet. pic.twitter.com/eWzDc5Yw6t

Kammen apparently took a cue from the Arts and Humanities Committee, whose members all resigned last week in a letter that had another acrostic: the first letter of each paragraph spelled out the word “resist.”
In Kammen’s letter, his two main points were criticizing the president’s response to the violence in Charlottesville and his policy toward science and the environment.
In the past week, Trump has defended his tempered condemnation of white supremacy, and disbanded a climate change panel.
