As the United States was a member of the Big Six, the President was aware that an unknown extraterrestrial force was pulling the Earth closer to the Sun, causing rapid climate change. She called British Prime Minister Margo Kinnear, who confirmed that there were only 70 years left of good soil before humanity would starve to death. The President told Kinnear that her country suffered even more floods than the United Kingdom and that her scientists were still looking into the issue.
The President's conversation with Kinnear was secretly recorded by Rose Tyler. This led to the truth about climate change being revealed after Kinnear was blackmailed into revealing the information about the disaster in Earth's future. (AUDIO: The Flood)
