Undeniable 2020 quotations

Climate change is a crucial issue in todays global agenda.

Hopefully, we will wake up to this reality, sooner rather than later. Pressure has been mounting on European Union Member States to act decisively to fight global warming. A bold target has been set reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 20 by 2020.

In a perfect world global emissions would have peaked already.

In a semi-perfect world we will peak on Dec. 31, 2020. The fact is, that's going to be difficult. We know that it's going to get more and more expensive the longer we delay.

This programme to stop nuclear by 2020 is just crazy.

If there were a nuclear war, and humanity were wiped out, the Earth would breathe a sigh of relief.

I will take all the steps necessary to give the NHS at least another £100million per week by 2020.

It never feels good if you don't reach all of your goals, neither in sport, nor in business nor in your personal life. But the key thing is to never give up, we have taken our learnings from 2014 and developed an exciting and promising strategy for the period up until 2020.

With Google I'm starting to burn out on knowing the answer to everything.

People in the year 2020 are going to be nostalgic for the sensation of feeling clueless.

Oracle's got 100+ enterprise applications live in the #cloud;

today, SAP's got nothin' but SuccessFactors until 2020.

With Google I'm starting to burn out on knowing the answer to everything.

People in the year 2020 are going to be nostalgic for the sensation of feeling clueless.

I have decided in 2020 to run for president.

By the year 2020, the year of perfect vision, the old will outnumber the young.

My 2020 Vision for India is to transform it into a developed nation.

That cannot be abstract; it is a lifeline.

Here's how I work: It's 2013, and most marketers are operating like it's 2009.

I'm always trying to market like it's 2015, but not like it's 2020. A lot of my contemporaries who understand where the world is going, go too far out, and aren't practical. I have always prided myself on being visionary, with a heavy practicality.

I think if you look at the things that Donald Trump has done that has satisfied conservatives. The fact that he still believes that he is their guy and then add to that the fact that Democrats don't have any sign of a competent effective leader that can marry their cultural left and the economic left going into 2020, I think Donald Trump stands a pretty good chance of being reelected.

Assuming he wins his primary easily, and continues to push back when Donald Trump goes over the line, I think Paul Ryan is well positioned to run in 2020 if Trump loses.

Mike Pence is the hardest one to guess in 2020 as a leader, because I don't know if he is seen as the heir to the Donald Trump political movement or ig being the heir is a good thing.

Politics is not about a person. We transform America not by electing some guy or woman to be president; we transform this country when millions of people stand up and fight back. That will result in good leadership on top. So the goal right now is not to worry about who's going to be running in 2020 or 2080. The goal now is to mobilize millions of people around a progressive agenda.

Nobody in Britain has voted for 4 million people to come here in the last 15 years, and for probably another 3 million to come between now and 2020.

There are a lot of things to like about [Borussia Dortmund's fans] and the city of Dortmund as a whole.I like their honesty. And I like that my family and I can feel safe here. I don' t have to worry at all about my safety and their and my own safety. Believe me, in other countries I have made different experiences in that regard. All of this, too, has led to my decision to extend my contract until 2020, and I can imagine staying even longer.

[Hillary Clinton] is now lost two times in a row, is the message that [Kellyanne] Conway was sending. But to the Clinton camp, the campaign's never over. It's gonna continue 'cause then you're raising money for the foundation. She's floating the fact she might run again in 2020.

One of my favorite places is the Maldives, an all-Muslim nation in the Indian Ocean with a culture that stretches back 5,000 years. But since the highest point in the archipelago is a meter or two above sea level, even the next hundred are not guaranteed. They've committed to becoming the first carbon-neutral nation on Earth by 2020, building windmills as fast as they can.

We have to get our states to adopt what are called "renewable portfolio standards" pledging to use a lot of renewable energy by 2015 or 2020. We have to work with businesses and shops to get them engaged in the same way.

What if he says [Donald Trump] plans to run again in 2020?

If we continue as we have for the past 20 years in California, in the year 2020, everybody in the State will either be in prison or running one.

If Donald Trump does lose, being revealed as this bizarre personality, Ted Cruz is not going to be what Republicans are looking for in 2020.

The Hispanic population grew by 4.7 percent last year, while blacks expanded by 1.5 percent and whites by a paltry 0.3 percent. Hispanics cast 6 percent of the vote in 1990 and 12 percent in 2000. If their numbers expand at the current pace, they will be up to 18 percent in 2010 and 24 percent in 2020. With one-third of Hispanics voting Republican, they are the jump ball in American politics. As this vote goes, so goes the future.

2020. There'll be cold fusion. We'll actually be able to power our cars with our own feces. That's right. The emissions problem will be a little intense, but just light a match.

In the European Union, a fleet average of 95 grams of CO2 per kilometer will be permitted in 2020. This corresponds to fuel consumption of about four liters (per 100 kilometers; about 59 mpg). We have to continue reducing the fuel consumption of our vehicles and offer hybrid and electric vehicles, or else we will be unable to achieve these values.

I think that the Apocalypse is going to be in this new way of thinking.

Somewhere between now and 2020, there has got to be a break though. Not just in science, we've done that, but a breakthrough in the human mind.

It (his contract) has options through the year 2020 or until the last Rocky movie is made.

We will achieve North America energy independence by 2020, by taking full advantage of our oil, our gas, our coal, our renewables and our nuclear power. Abundant, inexpensive, domestic energy will not only create energy jobs, it will bring back manufacturing jobs.

I believe that the existing power structures in Europe and Northeast Asia are not sustainable through 2020.

Telephones in 2020 will be archaic, relics of a bygone era-like transistor radios are today. Telephony, which will be entirely IP-based by then, will be a standard communications chip on many devices. We'll probably carry some kind of screen-based reading device that will perform this function, though I assume when we want to communicate verbally, we'll do so through a tiny, earplug-based device.

The range of derivatives contracts is limited only by the imagination of man (or sometimes, so it seems, madmen). Say you want to write a contract speculating on the number of twins to be born in Nebraska in 2020. No problem-at a price, you will easily find an obliging counterparty.

By 2020 the U.S. will be short 91,000 doctors. There's no way we can educate enough doctors to make up that shortfall, and other countries are far worse off.
