I think the global warming connection to Bees dying off and extreme hot temperatures was genius. I wish he took it a step further and showed dead bees on the floor. In my old neighborhood there was always dead bees on the floor and some struggling to stay alive. It was actually sad. One time I saved one. Brought it back home and fed it organic sugar mixed with water and the little guy started flying again 🙂 <3
