Of the problem doesn't get it. Don't live here in order to your businesses. And it's an Olympic qualified. One man and one man's opinion. The catch to that is so if you level and -- on the report that's always going to be your -- like a business. Everything else goes -- you wouldn't find some answers and posted Tuesday. Had better be rich in order Tuesday so I think the majority of away. And all the Regan says no there's nothing written about that. -- million. Bolivia Americans. Wetland foundation said the call -- and condition. The important for decades and make sure you can stay in its basic. -- about what's important to break on. On new ideas new ways to raise money and he'd talk to mitigation. And one of the shows we did this week -- Cold War. His -- around race and win when they don't need to be even the state says they don't need to be. Talking about. Seizing land. -- Keeneland and some people. Finley for a couple hundred years. An eminent domain to make up for. The mitigation. Credits needed for the building. Of the port to -- billion dollar -- a Pulitzer -- -- is mitigation. War. Well well yeah it. Well. I I don't mind people are far questioning that -- Yeah jets are -- saint Mary. I'll let. You. And not -- neck and actually get my life. She is going to be part -- -- there a part of the next. And on they are already. Out there are already make an issue. But we're talking now on my screeners fail and making sure that we're -- How we -- change and the projects and try and yet he got investors can be hard act. And even more that he is -- Of restoration. Bob Carrey -- that well now. We want to that matter into. -- -- individual. You know what. He -- tricky to. You. Do you are. You in the areas where. Beanie. -- actually are not top wild party at our client money. For population and what ever ever -- He dairy -- could be addressed Dick you're the perfect way to start ranting and and people a little bit. -- transition to our when your top outlaw security law a plot. Parliament Regis -- mitigation and a lot of people they. You know wonder what is why is mitigation always talked about well. It was a term that is intended by congress originally I work. Separately to. John Breaux. Was it was intended to begin it valued the ecosystem. So that we could places value on it and move into the time we didn't find it. Mark would began to meridian to say -- wetlands. Could stay up her star potential. That -- may pace. And so it. This mitigation is rich too -- -- -- -- your wetlands which could be. -- Monetary way in week agrees monies through some more subdued. Market. You know it's complicated. But just the tip of the iceberg to start to happen in in when that happens. We have more environmental. Land to be saint who mitigation. And through these banking. Certain areas in anybody. So this is going to be happening in the future and. We are very much in wanting to broaden the scale of these mitigation efforts so that private sellers in chase these environmental projects. Do own them you know we're talking about this few years ago and yet that nobody's seen the interest that look. But one of one of things I wonder about as you mentioned both -- -- mention. We're no longer alone. Nobody's selling if we live in the wrong place from Rio moved. Because it's dawned on Miami the entire East Coast jurors in Maine New York. Everybody knows -- in the same boat and all the way from Vietnam to Bangladesh. Are all in the same boat. Both were small and were politically weak with the all the pots that one mitigation. And investment dollars. Why would it be arts. Well now that we have a written an area Michael. Wooten. -- it's. Me. And you are. There every point it out people coastal -- at history and culture in out net. He can't even put a price line. -- -- -- And -- Tremendous -- each directed education. You know our. Economic. -- and would you addressed it. Or cars or what the actual negligently. Not injury which -- -- Not yet a lot like habitat. In the marine habitat and nurturing and -- the island. This year and -- our court system the largest in the world. To measure manage and what your country's best interest accuracy. -- -- government about got to take a break in the funeral of tools used to work. Take a break with comebacks it would mean like -- that would mean for the six -- ports. Once again we're talking about look yeah it's during no longer we gonna have Dillard's and Florida beaches and merger the man Newton. So forth and so -- billion wetland foundation and -- call. Have been fighting the good Boyd for a very long time making some in broad. Rescue boat. Sydney over the years I've been told figure of two billion over the years and now we're hearing not from -- but many others. Could be more like on each year and whatever maybe you were taught in about hypothetically building -- goes in dollars a year. And wanted to know exactly blogger or the numbers and this is what we got. This state tell those don't worry -- we've got to eighteen billion dollars but sixteen. Was spent on the blood around New Orleans so we don't have that that's what we've got. 2015700. Million -- 2006 and 500 million plus. 2017400. Million plus. It's stinky question but do I don't want to abuse every hit to the point where you say. Maybe you will go to work all and kind of a retreat. What would happen if we can't sustain what we've got. And where would we go and how would we do it more but the cost but he does. Is that even part of the conversation yet. Wish she had stated. You know -- it it did reality is we're not the end identical. Adding that -- reality. No matter why. And scare -- me. A simultaneous. Effort. I think wheat field and an -- and it talked about it trial on John. Getting. -- the community there -- possibly -- not making it. Actually -- period. You know. Wall everybody had to help flight ticket and he dropped the federal government in there. Of course the state well. And we got to do what he can actually people were -- It happened. You can never into -- EK. Between your -- a lot when you're trying to train engine out of lively -- Nice name to children -- little. -- -- as saying that he injected a life. You know a tornado like. People ought to try to BR it would be when he actually matched -- -- and and we got and adapt he had that back what would rather -- We heard round match about their effort and and you look at right. You idiot college now in new while he didn't see. Eight major city there and coastal. Console there. And I had shunned from liquid water. Right. Exactly and the planes are being wide right now. Are trying to eat right -- you Alan are truly out where the water about living with water. Actually acting. Without. You know how much work it out with Entergy on the -- and that the construction lost well. Yeah well our our survey works -- -- strategy showed that aren't economies cannot keep up with what speed. Loss of infrastructure is going to be the rising sea levels of the storms. In Garland I -- say something based on your earlier question about the court engineers. You know everybody thinks that we have had -- mistake in the court did meters duties projects. What we. You're involved in anything that apple. Extensive period and the cost rise enormously over time. The private sector company isn't taking these project private investment dollars. Can't cut the time. -- a reasonable amount of time that we can get the job done and much less -- you do it and. Because private detectives were out in the heat on restore -- -- we're pretty. Let me you don't give one -- and brought court. Literally of the group got a terrific producer talents and got deleted it was a leave it all there limping on the -- PP it's the get by Akron and wrong but. International organization talking about global warming and it's -- credit. And -- at her I'm looking at report from the center for climate change economic and policy. Right and the researching institute on climate change. They say quote unquote. Stopping climate change is impossible. In China that can't quit cold. And when -- look at the numbers or huge. They've got construction this year a hundred million tons of new coal production. That's just from this year. India and relying on 55%. Of their. Coal for or and there are increasing their consumption. That's why as the question should we. Transition to how to we get higher ground if it it seems even on a worldwide basis. And unstoppable problem. Hit it seems that way but you know we see EG enormous change. Forced on countries. And our own country to stop what -- uses. You know predict it is Wednesday. Art technology in our growth and technology and nations such as turning pro in biomass crops they can replace coal. Doing things differently Apollo wins and so -- Being our opportunities to break that Detroit is a new generation. Law however. As our chairman king at Indy in the program law and says. We are and where I'd say we debate numbers are the last generation you and turnaround this coast restoration problem. And that's our actions that and we'll do. And that's why we tried it solutions. Financing and speaking about our coast now not just aren't that these. But those wetlands that action we support all of the -- and art in our coastal regions and -- Louisiana and the Gulf Coast.
