18. That's different, but I still don't see it happening.
As for the 2050 thing, the website seems to be telling you to do it for one year starting now. Maybe I didn't read it close enough, though. Also, I was under the impression that Gore thought we should have made the 90% reduction in ten years, but again, maybe I misunderstood.
