As you will read here, and can watch the video on CNN, these are not unreasonable people. Like us, they recognize the need to move on. Their point: Don't do it in a panic, in a "shut if all down" mode. Ease into the transition. We think, though, they are missing that we have, in fact, done just that.

We can see, as an example, a tremendous opportunity to bring new manufacturing, battery storage systems, smart city components, etc as they offer amazing labor pool.
