Chairman of the joint chiefs Mike Mullen who was a principal military advisor to president George W. Bush and President Obama essentially says. The president trump might be running out of room here is yet to think about the fact that. We were minutes away literally from launching that military strike last week with Iran we are running out of cards to play as this continues to escalate. We very well could back ourselves into war with Iran or step forward aggressively with Sarah for that concern from Democrats. Senator Chuck Schumer has said he's worried that we were going to bumble into a war. But yet you mentioned the presidential candidate senator Cory Booker essentially said on this week yesterday. That we started this by pulling out of the Iran deal present from making that decision to unilaterally leave.

Welcome back now to the concern over the dwindling number of these experts are raising a new warning about how it's wreaking Havoc on our ecosystem even threatening our food supply CBC's rob Marciano. The workhorse is a pollination and fertilizing flowers and crops over 30% of the food American seat it's gone by honeybees. And recently the population of these vital coordinators is dropping at an alarming rate. Joey what's the only stand alone in vertebrate zoo in the world to look into it. Why do we think. The bee population is in decline. Sell it there a lot of factors that play into that decline at b.'s lack of habitat also pesticide use. And pathogens but about climate change what about a warming world so that can be a huge impact some of that has to do with wind plants bland so if you're -- You've missed your wind out. And those plants and struggle to bear fruit artist or take out our chief pol haters. Into dives I go with zoo keeper Sarah Tripplett. Well oh. But it almost d.s. So the first thing they'll do is the young bees can excrete this wax out of around glands on their abdomen and no format into these cells. And then the bees believe the hype and go collect nectar from flowers. But those negative factors now disrupting this very necessary pollination process appeared reminder to be as a kind of freaking me out. How to protect up about a flights okay and these other on eaters facing similar fights. Out if this is easy.
