One or even energy pipelines and you know, we know up there Michigan there's a lot of energy and a lot of energy transportation and and the last is trying to shut in a lot of our US Energy development tell us that we can't ship it from place to place and that's all part of their way to try to keep more of our US Energy development in the ground and force us to use more renewable energy. But you know, if they do that that's going to lead to higher energy costs. It's going to lead to a less secure nation. And of course it's going to damage our economy.
