Now the emissions today are 50 billion tons, and it's gnoriwg. It's growing and maybe it will be 61 by 2020. Now we need to go down to 10 by 2050. And while this happens, the population will grow from seven to nine bolliin people, the eocomny will grow from 60 trillion dollars in 2010 to 200 trillion dollars. And so what we need to do is to be much more efficient in a way that we can go from seven tons of carbon per ciatpa per person, per year, into something like one. You have to choose. You take the airplane or you have a car.
