Are you guys willing to give up your car and everything and start jut jetting around the world to stop global warming? I hear a lot of politicians talked to walk, but they're jetting around the world destroying the the world. Are they willing to take right? A horse to work. Are you willing to write a horse to world? Troy, Troy, you're talking to I just because. Yes, good question. You're talking to someone who doesn't own a car and has an owned one for twenty years. I walk and take public transit. No rideshare as well. But that's I guess I'm using car in that sense. But I think you're asking a really important question. Troy and thank you so much for your call carries his area. Let me turn back to you. Because the the point Troy's making, and we just got sixty seconds left here to go is our human societies. Especially in the developed world are built around exploitation of nature. And if we're going to really save it we have to change the way we live right now. And how many people are genuinely willing to do that? I mean, that's why we need to balance our consumption with the needs of nature. And we have an opportunity to do that. I mean, we do have these embedded impacts that we can't change at the same time life is resilient and given a chance we have convinced back. I mean, we have the return of the ball Daego. We have the reforestation of New England. I mean, there are there are examples where when we have worked kind of at the government level and in collaboration we can turn turn back that we can bend those curves.
