8:06 am
planet? >> it's something that he's been pushing very hard all through his seven years in office. whether these 195 nations commitments to reduce carbon emissions. it's a huge deal to get 195 nations to agree on something. looking here at home, you see all of the republican candidates against the deal, they're vowing to undo the steps that president obama has taken to implement the reductions. you'll have debates like that all over the world. but, will this stick? that's the question. it's not legally binding. it depends on the political commitment of each country that signed. >> george, thank you very much. appreciate it. i want to remind everybody, george has a big show this morning, including an exclusive one-on-one with republican candidate dr. ben carson. >> looking forward to that. also looking forward to the next

flavor hails from smithfield. i sure had a lot on my mind when i got out of the hospital after a dvt blood clot. what about my family? my li'l buddy? and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking.
