Salt -- So you put this back into the sea without harming the environment activist to the cabinet on the saudis stand -- to convention corporation. First. Pulled to particular about it that you need to reduce the temperature so that you bring it back again into -- is what that this war adapted to -- -- to submit to. If you look at the that the that the investment vehicle has committed notes posted take the liberals and -- in -- itself. As there was also the biggest Beckett did. More likely into the yeah its. -- similar to that. But had 80. Expect to see this only 60%. -- and its use insanity comes he's settling the so intense that the census is going to increase essentially. This is not sustainable. Solution. With the kind of get this benefit will reducing the government of some of the -- wouldn't sit through their own. Almost. Three million cubic feet that -- it was another two million. If he's that that they comes from deposits -- I guess you can eat. A total of almost five million people in the -- -- we need to vehicle production. From the code five million people with the big -- for almost seven and the need if you didn't do that but there's this there's news. If we look at the worldwide suspend them. And this loose we'll tell Verizon but it would put the final decision that you could meet the needs to roll over that ten million and so basically. In this almost that he gets them from today until the 20/20 five we need to almost doubled over -- to -- from -- Saturday. And how much is this going to cost Saudi Arabia has right now the desalination slowly easing into it boiled it -- them. To build more of to look at to -- World War II I'm sure it has the it has an impact on a lot of national economy. Although that has as much as we get a vote to providing -- nation need. The Kindle so that'd be visible in it. And therefore they made most of them policies to implement to be -- -- to double those policies is to this in. Energy efficiency. Saudi Arabia has been 300000. Barrels of oil per day to produce the -- to -- drinks but this thus only grass it's looking to renewables. -- -- -- We're looking at the wistful for other. Is that we can have 300. Thousand people who think that they could be a run. Why didn't you and energy and the whispers that he east of -- technologies with some at this summit. Six. I took -- -- Technologies -- Wind turbines. Contains festivals have fun doesn't it. Think any of these technologies to help wolf acknowledged as we know that live with a lot of the neighborhood that we've been working on. Is to be ballistic but as the contents of all of the -- -- victims of the -- -- that those who. What what kind of that if you that we would like to listen you go to Google shouldn't go would you put. Even the technology even itself but he's -- this -- itself. Is -- more things than what she has to deal. So we're looking at the wheel to the and -- that didn't have a good day even with the dissemination so it's kind of it's a holistic approach that we conducted -- Rather than just looking at specific. The ability to hit that. This latest. Witness area inside this. When looking at BP will look at this news being that looking at to win. When the wind that blew the whistle so the looked -- what was that kind of you know we have looked -- in terms of the technology. All of these these Saturday. We'll look at that he had one of those symptoms of anything. And is that oh has -- has -- so anything that this that would preserve all of for today and for the future not only for all of generation -- older generations ago.
