If -- wrong investments made by the DOD and R&D and research and development ironically though they weren't -- investments right well they've been luckily no doubt that eventually free market took that brow edged.
And commercial lines and they're gonna have a right but here's the point though they were -- this engine that was a diaper defense regularly all of these things at some department of defense's all.
So working on algae based fuels jet fuel authority purity deploying those they're working for about for the ships and they are working with with the traffic.
But CEMEX would say they've cut back on R&D for petroleum for things -- you need.

Is just -- -- hope that there all the money doesn't go to political bottlers.
Yes I'm with the on the market but now.
What can we do now though I mean on the -- one of the debates is the president's poll numbers have plummeted since he came out said essentially a oil companies are evil I'm gonna tax them what's by the way had a heck that that bring down oil prices and B there's nothing I can be done.
She can -- can't be done right now though.
-- yeah I think that there should be some more exploration expiration I think there should be more drilling in that in the gulf I think we can do that safely if you're you know.
Keeping an eye on on the people who are doing it and making sure that they're following the rules which they weren't in the BP case.
And I think that you know the keystone -- cutting -- gonna have to resurface mean that that whole idea of this shale you know.
