Most of that would stipulate to the idea that there isn't a lot that they could have done that they haven't done.

And I would like -- I don't know about oil and -- could fill a book I'm just saying that that this is a structural columnist and around YI I guess by the idea that there are some things that they they could have done differently but you know here's the problem you basically -- -- governing philosophy in this country for very long time in terms of the permits were issued.
The oversight that was done that -- -- go back a year and a half that goes back a decade that basically let companies like big oil write their own -- And I think that this is I would bet that we've we've we've learned from us and -- -- saying that that the president people are completely.
