Did you vote for Trump? Do you want him to succeed?

Have you seen all the Anti Trump protests? It’s time for the people that the Mainstream Media the University professors and the “community organizers” HATE to get out and make their voices heard, with peaceful productive protests!!!


There has never been a 3 day protest in front of MSNBC or CNN. There has never been an instance where Conservatives have gone to protest the actions/false teachings of a University.

Now there must be!  THE TIME TO ACT IS NOW, BEFORE WE LOSE OUR CHANCE, OUR TIME OF SILENCE IS OVER. WE MOVE TOGETHER NOW OR NOT AT ALL.

I’m not a Trump supporter I don’t even really like him, but others have placed him in power and it will all be in vain without visible public support. Clinton had 2.97 million more votes than Trump, the electoral college will not help us in the 2018 midterm elections, if he fails the Democrats will gain the congress in 2018 and the presidency in 2020, what rights do you think they will leave you with then.

ACT NOW.

I believe a big part of what got Obama and a democratic Congress elected was backlash against GWB and Republicans, one of the things that concerns me about the Trump presidency and the current backlash against Obamacare, global warming initiatives, etc. as a conservative (besides the obvious impact like dumping industrial waste and reducing coverage for preexisting conditions) is the effect it will have on the midterms and the presidential elections going forward. thoughts?

Those are my concerns as well. Obama got elected because he wasn’t a Republican, the Bush years made the 08 election very anti-Republican, and McCain really didn’t help. 

Actually on a cultural level its already happening again. People are afraid to be conservative, regardless of whether they supported Trump or not, and unless Trump turns out to be the greatest Republican president since Calvin Coolidge, it will lead to Democratic majority and continued and more extreme reemergence of the conservative stigma.

The fascist Trump/Pence regime has taken power, and there’s a real life resistance. There is also a real life push for Californian independence – of which I am in complete support. It should be noted that there is also a push for the rural areas of beautiful Northern California, beginning with Sutter County (just north of my county of Sacramento) to become the state of Jefferson, a previously proposed State for the purpose of better serving the conservative rural population of Northern California. While the area of the proposed Jefferson State is beautiful and holds a special place in my heart, I have to say I’d be in support of an independent Californian nation as well as Jefferson becoming its own U.S. State. I wouldn’t want to push Jefferson’s conservatives to live in California if their values are majority new-American and ours are certainly Californian, even if I’d love to see all of American California included in the new nation of California.

I’ll be candid with you: it’s hard to focus with all this going on in America. I say “America” because we are not United and since the inauguration I’ve denounced the demonym “American” in favor of the more accurate, the more Just “Californian.”

In other, better news: I started learning German in a classroom last week and am very excited. Ich spreche ein bisschen Deutsch! I also got promoted by our area manager at my restaurant job and I’m stoked to train to be a shift manager. $2.50 raise! My wages didn’t go up when California raised the minimum wage $0.50 this year, so I’m glad I’ll soon be making above minimum wage again. I’m in 2 other classes, a required intermediate algebra course and an advanced critical thinking/English writing class. Advanced-intermediate French wasn’t offered this semester, but I’m not worried about losing French proficiency. English is a breeze, writing is my strongsuit and I will kill an essay on the spot; it’s math I’m worried about. I need this course (intermediate algebra) and then a statistics class in the fall to finally be finished with mathematics. Math goes right over my head, I’ve been practicing it every day and meditating upon problem sets to try and drill myself into a more coherent understanding. Luckily I found a chill ass friend across town who’s taking the same level at a sister campus and we’re starting an “Asians Who Aren’t Good at Math” Study Group on Thursdays.

I’ve got a lot on my plate so far in this year of 2017. Perhaps not more than I had last year, but now the work is cut out for me, just the way I like it. I must maintain balance and remember the honor of self-discipline. I’ll be 21 in 2 months. I’ll be shift manager soon. I’ll have new tattoos to celebrate my birthday. I’ll be one semester closer. I’ll be finished with algebra. I’ll be focused and thoughtful. I’ll be speaking German and French and hopefully some Korean. This summer, I’ll have time for church. July, I’ll be going to Ireland. August, I’ll be in my last mathematics course. January, I’ll be in my last semester of community college. All the while in my own skin. Namu Amida Butsu.

278. Corner of Congress & 11th - Yesterday was many things. It was the first day since the election that I felt optimism and power. It was the first time I’ve been so wholly surrounded in a conservative state by people who believe in progressive ideas, equality and justice. It was my first march and it ignited in me a real drive to tangibly engage in civil service. Our society doesn’t exist without citizens engaging with the system. Our society doesn’t stay on track when we all go back to our personal lives and stop paying attention. This administration will affect everyone, even the privileged who don’t think it will. Its time to stay awake, read the news, critically think about our problems and solutions. What a day to be in Austin! #womensmarchaustin #womensmarch #whyimarch #atx #365drawings

I've been mad for 8 years, I'll be mad for 4 more

Long after you’ve all moved on to your next buzz worthy protest, and cheer up from your fake anguish, and shallow beliefs. My anger will still be here, my convictions will still be true. Republican, democrat, liberal, conservative, whatever criminal you deem to elect, I’ll still be here, and I’ll still be against you’re system of militarized and economic control.

I’ll yell and I’ll bluster, holler and stomp, you’ll fetishize and clamor towards you’re fascists, and I’ll tear down you’re false idolizations, you’ll look away and deny, you always look away and deny, but I’ll tear it down and expose the ugliness all the same.

I won’t stop until I’m dead or the systems torn a shudder.

My anger is constant.

The progressive side of American politics has often been described as a “liberal bubble” that does not understand what the struggles of real middle class, mostly white American’s life is like. But the liberals don’t live in a bubble of makde-up ideologies - progressives are on average more educated than conservatives and are eager to use what they see as successful political models from other nations to create success here. In contrast, the “conservative bubble”, a rather underused term by today’s confused (note: not fake) media, are relatively out of touch with global development and still lives within a Cold War, trickle-down economy ideology. Cities became liberal bubbles not because only liberals take the subway, but because they are more exposed to the outside world and can see changes going on a global scale.

Why do so many liberals feel that they can verbally abuse and insult people?  Where are all the videos where conservatives abuse liberals for their political positions?  They don’t exist!

I love how she immediately switches to the victim once consequences appear for her verbal abuse of her fellow passenger.

Note: We can disagree without being disagreeable.

my extended family is very, very conservative. Family gatherings get ugly because we usually can’t have a civil conversation, it’s a lot of shouting.
I was nervous to post my photos from the women’s march yesterday because I knew we were having a family gathering today and I didn’t want to get attacked about it.
But at lunch, my cousin, a 35 year old white male who is a huge trump supporter, slipped me $20 and told me he’s so proud of me for being politically involved, and that even though we are on other sides of the political spectrum, he really respects that I care and that I went and did that.

It was so nice

Inaugurations & Protests -- Then and Now

At my first Presidential Inauguration, I attended as a protester. It was January 1981. Hollywood’s Ronald Reagan had defeated the ineffective and then-uninspiring Jimmy Carter, and the world—much like today—was shifting from moderately progressive to what we then considered radical right wing. (Boy, were we naïve about how far right the conservatives could go!) I had voted for the third party candidate John Anderson, calling a pox on both of the houses of the establishment. Much like the youth of today who decided to throw in their lots with Jill Stein or Gary what’s-his-name, I was seeking an alternative to the constant bickering that went on in Congress and hoping that someone with sensible, unencumbered views could take us in a fresh, new, untried direction. Anderson got seven percent of the vote (about a percentage point higher than Jill and Gary combined) and Reagan, of course, clobbered Carter and took the oath of office while I stood with my wonderfully designed yellow and black sign in the freezing cold.

Ronald Reagan takes the oath of office as Jimmy Carter ® looks on.


“America, Your Own Bombs Will Kill You” the sign read. I had splattered red paint across the stick-on large black letters to give the placard a mild feel of horror without trying to scare the Reaganites—just send a message. (Reagan had campaigned on a stronger nuclear defense system—the Star Wars initiative, remember?—and I abhorred the idea of an expanding nuclear arsenal.)  I was one of a very few who dared attempt to spoil the movie star’s coronation. As I stood hour after hour at my chosen post near the fountain that adorns the west side of the Capitol—Reagan’s first inauguration was also the first time the West Terrace was used for the swearing-in ceremony—I was given the hate stare, derided, and generally scoffed. “What are you doing with a sign like that down here on a day like this?” one annoyed Reagan supporter asked me. “Free country?” I shrugged.  

Our tolerance for dissent had waned since the heyday of the Vietnam War protests in the early 1970s. I was surprised and a bit dismayed that there were so few willing to come out and offer a bit of opposition to what would become known as the Reagan Revolution.  Those few others who managed to wrest themselves from their day-off lethargy donned simple cardboard signs with magic marker messages. My friend and political protest mentor Robert Hoderny carried a sign that said “The Moral Majority is Neither.” We were more like the merry pranksters than a mass movement attempting to block the takeover of government by hostile forces. We were going along with the joke, knowing that the rule of law would be (mostly) followed and we would have a chance to redo the abomination in four years (or twelve, as it turned out).

The first sign to greet us as we exited Union Station into Columbus Circle.


How things have changed. At yesterday’s inauguration of the #RealDonaldTrump, protesters of the new President nearly outnumbered his supporters. My friend Terri and I emerged from Union Station after overnighting with her brother on North Capitol Street (we had attended the Peace Ball the night before) to a throng of demonstrators, both funny and scary. Bullhorns were raging, music was blaring, and people opposing the incoming President’s agenda were out in full force. Quite a change from, no, could it be … 36 years earlier? I don’t recall getting any older, but I guess I am. Maybe a bit wiser, as well. At least I didn’t throw away my vote this time, and Hillary took my home state of Virginia.

Some protests were whimsical, but thoughtful, just outside Union Station.


But who were these people we were encountering?  The first group seemed straight out of the 1930s. “Build A Revolutionary Workers Party” the sign read, “To Fight Trump … AND the Democrats.” It was signed “Internationalist Group.” My head was spinning trying to figure out the historic implications. We had a Russian President interfering with the U.S. elections so DJT could get elected, and now a Russia-inspired socialist group was demanding change? Does the right of the right circle around and meet the left of the left? I couldn’t figure it out and was too afraid to ask, though I did wonder if the kids holding the obviously pre-made signs were getting paid to do it.

Some protests seemed funded by foreign governments. Putin? Why?


As we made our way through Columbus Circle, Terri told me how The Trump team had requested that all of the Don’s Johns strategically positioned around town have their signs covered over so as not to create too much of a connection between his inauguration and the biological movement of people’s bowels. As Terri’s brother Jay told us just as we were leaving, “We’re going from sugar to shit today.” Well put, brother. Terri engaged in some playful civil disobedience by pulling back one of the cover ups to reveal “Don’s Johns” to the delight of all around. Merry pranksters.

Terri playfully pulls away the covering to reveal the offending signage.


We made our way down to D Street and up to where the non-ticketed commoners could view the ceremony. As we traveled, we were intoxicated by the level of protest to the man Congressman John Lewis (D-GA) had called an “illegitimate” just days before. At the entrance to one of the ticketed seating areas (the RED Zone, as it turned out) a group had formed pledging to block ticketed attendees by building a wall around the perimeter. “You said you wanted a wall!” they chanted. [Apparently groups like Democracy Spring and the ANSWER Coalition had teamed up to try and block all of the ticketed entrances.] But police had the situation well in hand and no ticketed supporters were delayed, at least not from our vantage point.


Protesters make it known they are not happy about DJT’s inauguration. They were out in force throughout the inauguration ceremonies.


I was happy to see that at least in this location (around 3rd and D Streets, NW) the protest was spirited, but there was no violence. One could see, however, how things might get a little testy. Apparently they did further down the street, where nearly 200 were arrested for burning trash cans and causing other disturbances. What’s unfortunate about that, besides the belief that violence in the service of protest is OK, is that the entire protest community gets labeled as incendiary. That was not at all what Terri and I witnessed on our stride toward … participation and inclusion?

Attendees had to pass by protesters on their way to DJT’s inauguration.


About half an hour before the swearing-in ceremony was to begin, we found an entrance point for the non-ticketed folks and walked in. The crowd was pleasant as we waited to get through security. And we waited. And we waited. The line hardly moved. I looked more closely and saw that there were only two screening areas for what was turning out to be several hundred people in line. Not good. They couldn’t have paid for a few more screeners for the commoners?

The line to get into the cheap seats was seriously jammed just half an hour before the swearing-in was scheduled to take place.


As the swearing-in time approached (I was listening on my iPod Nano radio), Terri and I made our way to a little coffee shop across the street and found a quiet corner. We tuned in, turned on, and listened through a shared pair of earphones.

Terri and I recreate our listening strategy. We sat in a coffee shop about four blocks from the Capitol and tuned in on my iPod Nano. Radio rules!

The speech that Trump delivered was shocking in its crassness, its hyperbole, and its takedown of the establishment politicians who were sitting directly behind him. Though we couldn’t watch their faces, as some at home might have been able to do, we clearly could feel their discomfort as this guy who will need to work with them to get ANYTHING done was demeaning them publicly for their inability to get things done. Typical DJT. Blow it all up and redo it my way. I wondered what Andrew Jackson’s speech must have sounded like nearly 200 years ago. Probably equally as jarring to the political class assembled then. But we survived it.

DJT takes down the political class during his first official speech as President as Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell suck it up.


Terri and I bantered back and forth about which parts of the speech Trump had written and which parts had been added by others. I was most heartened by the line “When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.”  I appreciated the sentiment no matter who came up with it. The rest, for me, was all Trump blah, blah, blah. I didn’t really recognize the country he described, full of gangs, violence, and poverty. Those things certainly exist, as author Ta-Nehisi Coates artfully attested in his searing “Between the World and Me” last year. But that is not all of America. Trump’s depictions sounded more like someone who had heard about these things rather than someone who had actually witnessed them, almost like a caricature of the problem rather than the problem itself.

Trump supporters celebrate after the swearing-in ceremony.

But I had to agree with him on several points. His description of how we have poured our wealth into overseas conflicts while our own infrastructure has languished in disrepair certainly resonated (Thanks, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld). In the next paragraph, however, he suggested that “the wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed all across the world.” Huh? The wealth of the middle class was ripped from their homes and provided to the bankers on Wall Street who illegally packaged faulty mortgage-backed securities and marketed them first to the corrupt ratings agencies and then to American investors, causing a housing and financial crisis of mammoth proportions that had to be cleaned up by President Obama when he first took office. Facts matter, Donald. And so do words. But whatever.

Democracy Spring and other groups staged a protest during the swearing in ceremony. They had found a way in to the up-front seats. Creative non-violence at work.


The speech had little poetry and no uplift. It mirrors Trump’s dark America that he peddled to an unknowing rural populace who listen too much to Rush Limbaugh and rarely get out of their dwindling towns to see the broader good that is happening in the “urban sprawl” of the urban centers. His “America First” strategy may make good headlines, but his inability to comprehend the global interconnectedness of business and the economy will hurt America long term and will do nothing to bring back industrial-age jobs. We need to retool for the 21st Century, not retreat to the mid-20th Century. His narrow view of how the economy works does not bode well for the future. Sorry.

After the speech, Terri and I made our way back to Union Station, which was not overrun by the crowds we had seen during Obama’s two inaugurations. In fact, it seemed like a normal business day, both at the coffee shop and at the train station, despite The Donald’s bravado that more than a million people had been in attendance. (The comparative photos of DJT’s crowd as compared to Obama’s first inaugural are shocking—and telling. Then again, it’s all a media conspiracy, right Donald?)

High school students greet visitors to Union Station after the inauguration of Donald John Trump.


As we grabbed a quick bite before heading home, we spotted some high school kids who were protesting the Trump inaugural with signs, holding them up as Trump supporters, fresh from their inaugural experience, came through the train station. I was impressed with this group of kids. At one point, a mini-celebrity, World Wrestling Entertainment’s Triple H, the son-in-law of our new Small Business Administration head Linda McMahon, came in and sat next to them. One bold and courageous student, recognizing the celeb (you couldn’t miss him with his DJT-look-alike-red tie) and realizing his connection to Trump’s cabinet, stood up and began singing “We Shall Overcome.” To his credit, Triple H kept his steroid-infused cool and mostly looked at his phone for the entire time. But the message was clear. We, the little people, the oppressed, the ones most challenged by your link to power, will not back down and we will creatively and nonviolently confront your party’s attempts to take away our rights and our freedoms.

Wrestling celebrity Triple H (l) and wife Stephanie McMahon ® try to ignore a quiet protest as they wait at Union Station. Linda McMahon, Stephanie’s mother, now serves in Trump’s cabinet.


It was a quiet but powerful moment, seen only by a few. In minutes, the Triple-H entourage, including an imposing body guard who tried to stare me down as I taped the scene, left for the inaugural after-party, as the students celebrated their show-down with the (somewhat) powerful. It was unfortunate that Triple H and his people ignored the kids rather than engaging them in dialog. Their posturing mirrored Trump’s Inaugural Address—no outreach, no let’s work together. Just, “We’re here. Deal with it.”

Trump supporters, fresh from the inauguration, engage with young protesters about their concerns.


Just moments later, I was heartened to see that some regular Trump supporters came by and actually DID talk to the kids about their thoughts and hopes for the future. It’s that type of engagement that will be needed as we try to move forward together as the UNITED States. Unfortunately, those calling the shots don’t seem to have that kind of openness and creativity, which will make it harder for them to govern.

The Obamas leave in a helicopter after the Inauguration of DJT.


Terri and I headed for our car and our suburban lives. It was the end of an era and the beginning of something totally new and unpredictable. (As if to punctuate this point, we had witnessed the helicopter carrying the Obama family away as it lifted off from the Capitol grounds immediately following the inaugural ceremonies.) I hope we can survive what is coming, but there’s something ominous and threatening in the tone and tenor of how the new Administration has chosen to begin. All top down; no listening, just telling. That may have worked during the Reagan years when America was weary of division; but given the level of protest I witnessed on the streets of Washington during the Trump inauguration, it’s highly unlikely that approach will work now.

Morgan Stanley warns Trump's 'thrill of victory' may give way to dour reality of governing

President Trump may find the thrill of his electoral victory giving way to the perils of governance, Morgan Stanley wrote on Sunday, adding that “execution risks” may make it difficult for Trump’s policies to have their intended effect.

Fresh from his inauguration, Trump now faces the task every president now faces: Marshaling political support for his priorities, and making sure they stick. In a research note to clients on Sunday, Morgan Stanley warned that “lingering disagreements” between Trump and GOP political leaders may have unintended policy consequences.

Congressional Republicans “embraced Trump despite their criticism of his conduct and lack of conservative orthodoxy. Hence, while our base case remains that Republicans can execute a tax reform-driven fiscal stimulus on or around [the third quarter of 2017], we concede that execution risks are rising,” the bank wrote.

“This high-risk, high-reward path is another sign that investors may find it increasingly difficult to believe that their faith in US policy will be rewarded as the year progresses,” it added.


Most investors and Wall Street analysts have been banking on tax reform and infrastructure spending as a boost to 2017 economic growth. However, Morgan—as well as a few other banks—warned that a grand bargain was far from guaranteed.

Tax reform “could include some disruptive elements that blunt its economic positives,” Morgan said. The political difficulties mean that “tax reform is not a given,” they added.

That is because another of Trump’s priorities—the repeal of Obamacare—could create “collateral damage” for tax reform, Morgan Stanley wrote. “Rising displeasure among Republicans about the risk of increasing the uninsured if they repeal [Obamacare] without immediately replacing it risks delaying this legislative process, and tax reform as a consequence.

Earlier this month, Goldman Sachs struck a similarly sanguine note, saying that "it is not yet clear what the political dynamic will look like when the agenda moves to areas where the Trump administration’s views diverge from congressional Republicans.”

Should Trump’s popularity improve, “he could bring many Republicans around to his position on key issues” such as his protectionism on trade and governmental reform. “If not, [Trump] could find it hard to pass some of his priorities in Congress.”

Meanwhile, others doubt the idea that the fiscal boost will live up to its hype. Capital Economics said last week that hopes for a “global reflation looks misplaced,” given that other countries are unlikely to follow suit with a fiscal boost of their own, while the impact abroad of U.S. tax reform will be limited at best.

Morgan Stanley still expects some form of fiscal stimulus that would prop economic growth up at 2.0 percent this year and next, but it warned that investors would be “naïve” to believe the Trump rally could continue unabated.

“Rather, we think it prudent to recognize that investors may see this evidence and come to a less-than-optimistic conclusion – a return to gridlock and negative unintended consequences are meaningful risks,” the bank wrote, which could include an erosion in corporate earnings, and spillover in debt markets.

Government 'tried to bury' its own alarming report on climate change

The Government has been accused of trying to bury a major report about the potential dangers of global warming to Britain – including the doubling of the deaths during heatwaves, a “significant risk” to supplies of food and the prospect of infrastructure damage from flooding.

The UK Climate Change Risk Assessment Report, which by law has to be produced every five years, was published with little fanfare on the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs’ (Defra) website on 18 January.

But, despite its undoubted importance, Environment Secretary Andrea Leadsom made no speech and did not issue her own statement, and even the Defra Twitter account was silent. No mainstream media organisation covered the report.

One leading climate expert accused the Government of “trying to sneak it out” without people noticing, saying he was “astonished” at the way its publication was handled.

In the report, the Government admitted there were a number of “urgent priorities” that needed to be addressed.

It said it largely agreed with experts’ warnings about the effects of climate change on the UK.

These included two “high-risk” issues: the damage expected to be caused by flooding and coastal erosion; and the effect of rising temperatures on people’s health.

The report concluded that the number of heat-related deaths in the UK “could more than double by the 2050s from a current baseline of around 2,000 per year”.

It said “urgent action” should be taken to address overheating in homes, public buildings and cities generally, and called for further research into the effect on workers’ productivity.

The Government also recognised that climate change “will present significant risks to the availability and supply of food in the UK”, the report said, partly because of extreme weather in some of the world’s main food-growing regions.

The report also said the public water supply could be affected by shortages and that the natural environment could be degraded.

Bob Ward, policy and communications director at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment in London, said he was “astonished” at the way such a report had been slipped out.

“Defra did very little to publicise it – they didn’t even tweet about it,” he said.

“It’s almost as if they were trying to sneak it out without people realising. I have no idea what they were thinking.

“They should have made a much bigger issue of it – at the very least Andrea Leadsom should have been promoting it heavily with a major speech.

“Why she couldn’t make a speech to draw attention to the need to recognise the risks, I don’t know.”

Mr Ward said it was important for members of the public to realise what was at stake.

“There can be no excuses for not taking the issue of climate resilience seriously,” he said.

If the UK was left vulnerable to the changes that result from global warming, it could harm the economy, Mr Ward said.

“You wouldn’t want to build a new factory here if there was a danger of it being flooded.”

He added there appeared to be a “muddled approach to climate adaptation at the heart of Government”.

Dr Doug Parr, chief scientist at Greenpeace UK, said the report made clear that climate change was “one of the biggest security threats” faced by the UK and that urgent action was required.

“So it’s somewhat troubling that ministers decided to sneak out this vital assessment, produced only every five years, the day after the Prime Minister’s Brexit speech. Neither Defra nor the Environment Secretary thought it even worth a tweet,” he said.

“We do hope their lowering of priority in communicating it does not reflect any lowering of priority in delivering the measures needed to protect the UK from the risks climate change poses.”

Commenting on the Government report, scientists said the risks posed by climate change were serious and growing.

Professor Joanna Haigh, an expert in atmospheric physics at Imperial College London, said: “We have to remember that our civilisation has developed to thrive in a particular climate and as this changes it is throwing up all sorts of challenges to our way of life.

“We can adapt to some impacts of climate change, as the Government’s risk assessment shows – but only if we keep climate impacts within reasonable bounds by reducing carbon emissions.”

She said informing the public about the potential dangers was a “hugely important thing to do”.

“A lot of people talk about global warming and think it’s just the world going up by a degree or two and that ‘doesn’t really seem too much’,” she said.

“But when you think about the actual impacts on the ground and on people, it’s actually quite serious.

“Should the public be aware of these sorts of issues? Absolutely yes. These things are actually going to hit people, it’s going to affect you in your daily work, health and life.

“It’s affecting food production across the world, so all our supply chains will be up the spout.”

And Professor Hugh Montgomery, director of the Centre for Human Health and Performance at University College London, said extreme weather events such as flooding and heatwaves were a “direct health risk particularly to the elderly and infirm”.

“People in the health community are becoming increasingly alarmed by the threats that climate change pose to human health, and rightly so,” he said.

“If we get it right, our efforts to tackle climate change avoid some of these risks, and directly benefit health: renewable power doesn’t generate health-damaging pollutants, for example, while walking or cycling improves health and reduces emissions from cars which is a major problem in many of our cities.”

Commenting on the report, Defra Minister Lord Gardiner said: “Our changing climate is one of the most serious environmental challenges that we face as a nation and that is why we are taking action, from improving flood defences across the country to securing our critical food and water supplies.

“The latest assessment will help us develop our long-term programme to tackle these risks so we can continue our work to protect the nation better today and for future generations.”

A Government source said a news story was published on the “official Government online channel, gov.uk, which was “standard practice for such a report”.

“We don’t flag every report we publish on gov.uk or elsewhere to media,” the source added.
