Yes if truth be told I have. I'm not even sure if I would call it. A benign phenomenon. I mean it's been very positive and uplifting from my I point view look a day make the mistake of thinking that it is proof of huge public popularity because I think the truth of the matter is and I think I said this to in when we met recently it self selecting the people who come up to you and express enthusiasm say well Donald. I'd like to say thank you for your service and it. It does happen. A lot in London happens every day without fail. They mean hundreds of people but I mean a steady trickle every day when I mountain public places. Isn't those people are choosing to come and say hello and say thank you or we support your. We think you did a great job because they are supportive. The will be huge numbers. The people who have the foggiest idea who you also think of coming up to you and saying and this face it will be people who don't approve of me who didn't think much of me as speaker or it don't approve of my political views. They see them and they're not all Maho with exceptions gain to come up and say anything. Why well because most people they want to cross the road to pick a fight? People got lives to lead and you know they probably don't want to have a free car or an altercation so they probably wouldn't but it's as to the means the means quite on I am od very recently familiar with the idea of me or what. My children described to me as a mash up mash up walls other than a collection of potatoes prepared to accompany the dish and I was astonished when I was first told about this but I saw a number of memes. I saw me on my mobile phone of me saying Mr Peter Bone Conservative member bottom of wedding. Bre and somebody had done a me more a mash up of me saying Mr Peter Bone to do. The music of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony was a member of the public who presumably either not fully gainfully employed or have been leisure time and he thought it would be fun to do so at meetings to burn cetera and the stuff on the Internet.

I suppose you know I have to admit uh-huh do seek it but I have found it stimulating and to a degree to a very modest degree reassuring. I've I think I'm pretty robust. Oh you do get a lot of criticism and abuse and that goes with the turf of being a public figure. I'm not complaining about that but it's nice. Obviously it's human nature to want to have some approval rating is nice when people come up and say well what have they said. Thank you well dom we think you did a great job and some of them tend to focus on very simple things like you know. I enjoyed the way you kept older because lots of people in London in particular upset. So thank you for standing up for parliamentary democracy. Thank you assisting the encroachment by the executive thank you for enabling. MP's to speak their minds and vote in accordance with their conscience and notches rolling over to the government of the day. Now of course that which makes me popular with some people makes me. I absolutely accept very unpopular with others. Well what took Mala that later. which formula wants us? How many reality TV offers have you turned down so far?

Jeremy Paxman will to Bethesda. Judy I think she probably said me because my name was probably the first politicians name that came into her. Mind if judy had even the faces inkling of just how disastrously inadequate a ham as adults she might have ideas. I'm not sure wall. She would have been champing at the bit to see if she observed my imitation of Danzig. The truth of the matter is I've always enjoyed public speaking that I loathed on saying I complete understand why people love it and if it or even if they're not good at it and they have fun. I have no sense of timing and I resist in almost all circumstances being being dragged onto the dogs I have been asked to go celebrity vast divide. I've turned that down. Why do you ask in my mind? You could just may -letes aches well. I think it's a question over the specialist subject y questions especially subject because I think we could choose a specialist subject. Actually in Mike Is. It probably wouldn't be parliamentary procedure. Would probably be the career of Roger Federer in which I'm steeped am. I think I could probably learn a couple of thousand facts about his background background and career and track record and so on perform more than adequately on that front I think the real clincher is. Who's good at the general knowledge? Should I didn't think I've got a particularly good general knowledge. So would I want to a base myself and perhaps even disgrace myself by doing badly. If I'm really really honest about it. I think I'd rather not fair enough. Eskin may which is something you dabbled in while you focused on your proper edsa priorities.

I I'm not sure I mean there's there's probably an element of thought this all also will Element of practicality I think he decided that once that thirty the first of October deadline had passed that was the right time for him to step down parliament is still in session so we it does feel right this feels the right and this is not the first time a speaker has been chosen towards the end of parliament either but also you know I think for me one of the things that striking and we've we've talked by this and we know is that there's a lot of women standing dying from politics because they feel that the nature of politics is too toxic it's too aggressive there's certainly an argument about you know how the Chamber conducts itself so at a time when the number of women stepping down I actually think it would be quite good to have a woman in the chair as speaker there's a number of good candidates Harriet Harman Ellen Align Rusi wind turn make make healthier and I actually think it is time we've had one hundred fifty six male speakers in British political history when he had one the female the Bruin Betty boothroyd that we got a male leader of the opposition we've got a mail prime minister we've got quite match or politics at the moment I think it would send degree signal that we would have a woman in the chair next Abbott said that you are a man of surprises have you brought it surprised the president rated concerning the arms negotiations should anybody clean the policies are made with surprises when Mikhail Gorbachev Man Ronald Reagan in the White House way back in one thousand nine hundred seven both Soviet leader and the the US president hoped for a new era of peace Mister Gorbachev has warning that work being undone.

"Eighty two people who really want to remain and people who really want to leave a hyper energized right now because we are reaching the end game the stakes are Boris Johnson once said I'd rather be dead ditch then ask Brussels for brexit extension and yet that very letter was dispatched to the weekend unsigned photocopy on naught the May not be any food calls of the PM near ditches for a while but if he has a hard hat for just such an occasion and every politician does love a hard hat he may want to keep it close he's been battling parliament again today and MP's on both sides of Bragg's it on so much digging ditches as trenches there is no easy route for Mr Johnson to get what he wants as the Evening Standard's editorial column argues the Prime Minister crashed into the House of Commons and Saturday and came off dented he'll probably crash into it several more times this week it won't stop him driving on but at some point he might have to adjust his route if not his destination four things are clear the fast is that the prime minister wasn't prepared to break the law he ask for an extension on Britain's E. U. Membership and we'll get it from that flows a second fat the UK may not leave the EU on October thirty first it definitely weren't leave on that date without a deal the third thing that's clear is the reason he had to shift today's nation is in substance the same Saturday's motion and the House has decided the matter today circumstances are in substance the same assessment today's circumstances my ruling is therefore the motion will not be debated today as would be repetitive and disorderly you do so parliament is still in control the hype top CPA Saturday wasn't a damp squib as some say it was a success us. MP showed that the constitution is working which leaves a fourth thing we've learned Boris Johnson wants a deal and then a general election in that order pot of soup Saturday was a march held by the People's vote campaign with a rally that are London editor Asia has compared with the campaign says that would a million people there so it's hard to pull out of face from that sort of crowd but there are rumors swirling that may have been an unexpected figure amongst them well we are running we piece in the diary Empty Londoner we have reports that a certain Dominic Cummings was spotted lacking in the crowds wearing a beanie hat apparently shocking Donna coming veep quite frankly I wouldn't surprise me if he'd been arriving because he may well have been traveling between number ten and the highest Coleman's he may will wanted to come out and sort of see what the most fear was like but certainly backstage it was very very cross party we had a politician this from from all different political parties pardoned breaks at Party of and we have people from all the nations and region I am and you know we had a good spread to people's credit at one point backstage so dominic grieve talking to Alastair Campbell talking to Michael Heseltine who had a night not all I was thinking today is the day to hug the interesting fashion choices beanies beanies and what did the people in politics where when the not in parliament itself I'm wasn't a feeling that it could make any difference whatsoever well I think on the morning of the March and the night before there was a feeling of despondency that em- Boris Johnson's vote would have gone through I certainly felt that invite sort of tweeted something saying I think tomorrow is going to be awful and win that Oliver Letwin vote was passed that critical over Letwin vote which can amend rest of the day was sort of null and void that was a really big movement because I think a lot of people in the crowd look people backstage myself didn't think that was going to pass I thought the actually a lot of libra MP's would end up booting against it so when that passed that was a really dramatic rising movement I mean the roar was incredible so everyone's spirits rocketed after that and there was a feeling of of of euphoria but the important thing is I did see this at the end of the rally is that okay today was another big milestone but the fight goes on and really Walt's going to play out over the next seventy two hours in parliament is going to be absolutely critical and now we have this conversation all the time but it really is an I think You know there is every chance that the legislation could get through I'm this week and I think it's also important to say that the people saying that the let when amendment was just trying to delay everything it wasn't it was kind of trying to make sure that we didn't end up falling I am with new deal and it's to make sure that anything has sort of proper scrutiny but it does feel the tension is very very high again it is very very high is the fatigue does all the this constant voting constant amendments constant bills and you know the things at Dominic Cummings does leaking things to the press is that kind of bearing zone on the people's vote campaign those people who want to stay in the EU is it making them tired I think there is an undeniable psychological fatigue back to the situation because it does feel like you know we've been involved in battle for three well well over three years now and that is exhausting and only the the emotional rollercoaster you know it's deadline it's high drama it's delay it's you know so all of that definite exhausting I think not just on the remain silent I think on the leaf site as well but I think because the stakes are so high that I think Saturday's events probably giving people a bit of shorts and I think the way politics is is playing out on this people who really want to remain and people who really want to leave a hyper energize destroyed by because we are reaching the end game the stakes are really high the pressure is on do think is a big group of people in the middle will who are probably more gentle levers or remain as an a lot the public just don't care I think they are probably the host fatigue so there is some truth in art and of course the message this Meta message that Dominic Cummings Boris Johnson are pumping are is get breaks don but of course even if legislation is passed this week even if a deal is passed this week it's not the end it's the beginning of a very very lengthy process all the the really nitty gritty stuff about what kind of trading arrangements we're going to have what sort of free trade demint and we're going to have and of course as well you know there's a big question which we have discussed before what are the consequences going to be for not just the European Union but the United Kingdom the Union right here next highland gave fans got behind their team

I in a lot of people came to work today. A lot of schools are still in session so people are kind of you know still trying to go about their business but a lot of the action right now is to the north and the East in Houston. We're seeing a lot of flooding going on in areas about fifty miles east of Houston and the community of winning smaller community. They're also they've had problems since overnight in the Beaumont area. That's a little bit larger city about eighty miles to the east of Houston here in the city proper. Were getting reports right now. Some fairly high water in some of the northeastern suburbs reports of were going into homes. Also people getting stranded in their neighborhoods. The big airport Bush Bush Intercontinental. They've come to a total ground. Stop and there was also a lot of flooding around the airport as well. We just saw photos that someone put out on social media of one of the Metro Transit Transit buses totally flooded so it's not only the plane's getting in and out but people actually physically getting to the airport yeah and we saw that Houston Bush airport is back open but flights are still delayed in the roads surrounding the airport as you mentioned are flooded. You also mentioned Beaumont so the Beaumont Police Department tweeted that the nine one went operation center is experiencing heavy calls more than two hundred and fifty high water rescues and nearly three hundred evacuation requests Hauer. Those water rescues going whether getting as many as they can. You've got the Fire Department Police Department other entities since we're on the coast. All of these communities have emergency. Does he plans for weather events like this. It can kind of come up by surprise but then there gets to a point where you need some help from outside so what we see in a lot of these flooding events civilians going out in their boats to rescues. We have the organization you've probably heard about called the Cajun Navy from Louisiana Group of volunteers who goes they go to different places to rescue so there comes a point where civilians with boats or pressed into service to handle a lot things revenues there's so much going on there we are also hearing reports of Tornados happening and then there's the impacts to hospitals and nursing homes and I guess that's where all those civilians come into play assisting folks as well as officials assisting folks.

Louis Czuczka name on the Department of Agriculture website. You won't find his biography. That's because has after more than two decades. Working is one of the departments top scientists looking at how climate change affects plants. CZUCZKA quit saying the trump administration was trying to silence his research search. Lewis Cisco is now associate professor at the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University and joins US professor. Welcome glad to be here. Thank you well. Let's start with with the research. What was it that the trump administration you say didn't want to get out. We were looking at how rising carbon dioxide levels have have a impact with respect to nutrition and we wanted to focus on rice because rice is one of the primary staples globally prior to submitting the paper approve of course we have to get permission from higher ups at the National Program Level and the paper was accepted as part of the overall process wants the paper had been peer reviewed and was getting ready to publish the editor approached us and said look you know we think this is going to get a lot of press. Would you mind doing a press release. I said no no problem but after the press release was put in we were told that no the conclusions of the paper were not supported by by the data. If you had a problem with the paper you would have done it initially not something you do after the papers then accepted so so indicated to me that they were not going to support the scientific findings even more than that they went out of their way to touch base with other groups that were involved in this and also urged them not to do a press release and to me that was sort of crossing ethical line in terms of what shoot what you can do and I wanna get to the politics of this in a minute but first of all what were the conclusions the conclusions were that as co two has been rising facing if you look at the integrative nutritional content of rice what we found was that the protein levels are going down that key elements such as iron zinc that are important portent for human health are also declining and that at least for some of the the data we didn't have a chance to do this for all the different sites but for the ones we did what we found was that there was a drop in B. Vitamin content and races an important source of violence for for many people in the world and we focused on when those countries in the world that were more than fifty percent of your calories come from rice alone countries like Bangladesh or Laos House or others at least fifty percent of your diet comes from only from rice so those the ones that we felt less susceptible to the CEO to induce change inch now. These were data that were attained in the field. They were data for C o two concentrations that we are almost certain will happen before the end of the current century so the fact that it's going to have an impact on the health or potential health of over six hundred million we thought was something that was obviously important. Why does the climate climate and the carbon in the atmosphere have an effect on the nutrients in rice and other plants. What we think is happening. Is that plants are very adaptable to their environment. They can't exactly pull up the roots and run away so what they do is they change chemically and what's happening right. Now is an unprecedented increase in carbon in the air is not keeping pace with other elements such as nitrogen and phosphorus and potassium that come from the soil so what we're seeing in a number of different instances is that those compounds that require a lot of carbon may be benefited by the change in carbon but those that require like more nitrogen or phosphorus. I in fact maybe going down so when we looked at the nutritional profile of rice what we found was that vitamin E. to cover all was actually going up now. That's a compound that it's only carbon so it may benefit by the rising co two whereas something like vitamin B Nine B twelve which have a lot of nitrogen. We're actually going down so what this implies is not just for rice but for all plants at the bottom of the food chain is that as co two changes they may be adapting in that in a way that's going to affect their basic chemistry and that of course has implications for not only human health but for all animals animals who rely on plants as their primary source of food and are all of those adaptations as far as you know going for the worse for human health not necessarily necessarily so if we see for example that vitamin. E. is going up then that may have a benefit but one of the things that's most worrisome about what we're observing is the change in protein and what we find is that protein concentrations are going down across the board. Now you can argue and some have that this change in protein is result of of breeding for higher and higher yields and crops but we also went to the Smithsonian Natural History Museum and you look at some of the samples overtaken one hundred fifty years ago. Oh prior to the start of the industrial age and we were looking at not people food but we were looking at solid egg or Goldenrod and Goldenrod goldenrod pollen is a major source of nutrition for bees for pollinators and what we found there was that in addition to what we had been observing for rice and other other props is a similar decline in protein for the pollen and that has implications for be health pollinator health as well so we can't say it's universally awful saying is that plants which are the basis of all life are changing and how they're changing is going to have implications not only for human health but also for the environment as a whole so to the politics this the US Department of Agriculture has denied having suppressed any climate-change-related age-related reports or information in response to your resignation. The department said that preventing the promotion of your study was not political but was instead based on scientific disagreement agreement. How do you respond to that. If there was issue of scientific disagreement then prior to my submitting the paper they should have come demand demand said Oh. We don't think the science here is feasible. We don't think the science is appropriate. They didn't do that. They did it. After it's gone through peer review you don't do that after the paper's getting ready to be published the people that disagreed with it. The Best of my knowledge are not people that have any background and looking at climate change danger carbon dioxide effects on nutrition. The person who contact me told me about it was actually a soil scientist not someone who had published in this area at all so this doesn't sound like they're disagreeing with the science it sounds to me that they're disagreeing with the outcome of the study and the fact that the study did not fall into what their political purview was so it was. It was very unusual this never I've been with as you mentioned in your intro. I've been with USDA for over twenty years. This never happened like this before I of course responded by saying. Hey let's meet. Let's talk about this and and there was no follow up meeting. There was no effort to come back and say specifically how what happened or why it suddenly at this point in the process was not acceptable. It made no sense now. You're not the only government employees to recently leave over the issue of climate change Do you think you're going to have a bigger impact on this issue outside the government then you could inside the sad. The sad part is that I think I will but the the sad part of that is that they're very good people that are still at USDA good scientists good technicians who can make a difference but if you're not allowed to work on this if you're if you're steered away from doing this kind of research then what impact are you going to have and yet at the same time you have in in real terms you have farmers that are dealing with unprecedented rainfall fall you have farmers that are dealing with unprecedented pests threats to their production and you have on the other hand folks of Agriculture Research Service. They're good people. That can do a lot in this in this regard but you're not gonNA use them because it's politically inconvenient to begin to address a a problem that the administration believes is not a problem. This is it just isn't right. This is what what USDA and other scientists at the federal level are therefore is help address problems of national importance to ignore those problems to say. Oh no that's political science. That's not evidence based. I don't have the words to to express why that's so wrong. Why that hurts so many people not just the scientists but ourselves as a country in terms of our ability to be a sustainable producer of major food crops for the world is a whole Yes I can from a a personal level. I'm very very grateful for Columbia to take me on but from a larger perspective I think it's going to hurt the research that it needs to be done overall to begin to address these challenges to food security that Lewis Czuczka who is now an associate professor at the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University.
