So before I dive into those key numbers and
entrance as I just said I briefly want to discuss Wicked problems something that comes out of social science really is intrinsically what we're dealing with that we have many of those Wicked problems at the moment and a safe and sustainable supply of raw materials or material specifically is certainly a wicked problem because these problems are many stakeholders.
