I – What is so special about it?
D – The cost.
I – Yes, it is expensive.
D – It is not about rupees and dollars.

D – The pollution and depletion of our natural resources – environmental costs.

I – You really think it is a solution.
D – Yes, unless it is a quest for occult ritualistic sacrifice for ulterior motives.
I – (?)
D –Like the 9/11 demolition of twin towers.
