What will the world be in 2020?

I think no one is for sure exactly what will the world be during the next fifteen years,but one thing is certain that the world 's polulation will dramatically increases especially in Africa and Asia.

Another thing may happen is that gasoline price will rocket if we don't find other energy substitutes.

Some dictatorship countries 'regimes may bocome democratic countries.

Global warming may cause dramatical climate changes which can greatly impact our lives.

Due to not deal well the nuclear issues of North Korea and Iran,maybe the world will suffer nuclear war,this is a very serious problem which the world will face with.

Hong kong may get the right of universal suffrage and people in Hongkong can elect their leader directly.

Some countries in Africa may have serous famine due to drought ,the world will appeal to some Africa countries to carry out the family plan to control their population .

yeth, it's a serious question that dramatically stimulate our imagination. god knows what the future will be. we live in a confusing society crowed with empty people. drugs, crimes and sexual activities, etc. who dare to hold a picture of future? i doubt. mightbe, 20years later, the population will surprisingly decrease due to war. who knows.

I agree with estheremm: people won't change. They never do.

The 14 years left until 2020 is not really a long time.

For those of you old enough to remember, think back to what your life was like in 1992 (14 years ago). Not a lot has changed in terms of lifestyle in western countries (just technology improvements). I guess a lot has changed in some developing countries though.

But I think the next 14 years to 2020 will be more dramatic with energy issues (oil and gas related conflict) if we can't dramatically switch to alternatives by then, the rise of China, terrorism and environmental problems.

Demographic problems come fron some country's populations growing to fast and some (Europe and Japan) growing to slow.

It will be crowded, starving, and very, very hot.
I don't think it'll be a good time for the people of Earth. Not at all.

Has anyone seen An Inconvenient Truth?
You should.

I think it will be better than now. We'll get rid of our problems. Especially it won't happen any war after 2015. Because new generation is more peaceful than old generation. I hope that 10 years later whole old generation will die.

It's too hard,not all of the old generation loves wars,most of them are peaceful.I believe.
Although there will be still many problems in the future,we must have confidence and believe that the future world will be better than now.It is our responsibility to build a peaceful and beautiful world. Wink

USA could have successfully eradicated the muslim countries and it may look at Vietnam again.

My guess is a barren, lifeless world. Smog looms over the landscape, rendering a foggy and dusty look over what was once great human cities. Forests of abandoned buildings and ruins stand silently as a testament to the disaster that has destroyed civilizations. Dangerous radiation cuts through what little survived, leaving them with a painful, writhing death. Black, viscid water replaces the substance that originally gave life, murdering whoever that dares to take a sip.

Thermonuclear war, anyone?
