ntsb officials are traveling to jacksonville, florida, this morning to investigate the sinking of an american cargo ship in the bermuda triangle. the coast guard confirmed it sank. crews are searching for the 33 people aboard, including 28 americans. they found one body but could not recover it. the ship disappeared five days ago in the middle of hurricane joaquin. the coast guard says anyone who abandoned ship would have battled up to 140-mile-an-hour winds, and 50-foot waves. this morning, syrian state television says russian war planes bombed by isis targets in and around the newest russian attacks by u.s. led coalition war planes. coalition forces say they launched 24 air strikes in iraq and syria on monday. they're trying to intensify the campaign against isis. david martin visited the air base in qatar where they're trying to keep those two air commands apart.

>> don't recycle? >> recycle some things. paper, cardboard and metal can make sense. it's fairly economical to do that. it has some environment am benefits. we have this weird obsession we are cycling everything. we should get to a zero weight society. most garbage is garbage. it's not that worthwhile to recycle. it's pretty expensive to do that. >> what's the biggest many mistake in recycleing? >> trying to get everything done, doing food, plastics, exotic things, glass is a big mistake. it breaks, and you end up with this glass that nobody wants. they actually have to pay to get rid of it. so we should be selective. more and more politicians are saying, i'm going to get our recycling rate up to 50%, 75% or zero waste. what we should do is recycle what makes sense and throw the other stuff away. >> we were always told
8:34 am
everything makes sense, like this plastic. where do you stand on plastic, john? >> plastic. there is a slight environmental benefit from it. it does reduce greenhouse emission a little bit. it saves energy when you recycle plastic. just to give you an idea of the scale to offset the emissions from one trip to europe, wow would have to recycle 40,000 bottles. the savings so little. if you rinned them in hot water, just a little energy could offset all the savings, you'd end up putting more carbon in the atmosphere. >> americans generate 250 million pounds of trash a year. what about the idea that there won't be enough land films to hold all of that trash, some of it's got to be recycled? >> that was the big fear back in the ''80s when they couldn't find a place for it. in fact, there is plenty of room in the united states to bury trash. we have all this open land, all the bar gage we would generate for the next thousand years. >> where is all this open land,
8:35 am
not around new york city? >> people don't want to have it around cities. i visited this landfill in virginia. it's hidden back in the woods. they pay so much property taxes, they have beautiful schools. so it makes sense, it's carefully lined. it's monitored. it's out there. then after these landfills are filled, they cover them with grass and they turn them into parks. >> the as soon as you point out is clear. you weigh the cost benefits. what about just the value of recycleing? with my children i like the idea that they think about the environment and the earth. they think about not overusing too many plastic bags, reuseing one bag every time you go to the grossry store. doesn't the value of that? >> i agree with that. i started recycleing because my daughter became a little needs in the house. in 6th grade, she said, we have to, we have to. now, listen to you, i show her your article. see, see, kirby. >> i think it's nice to tell
