The best thing about starting 2020 is that 2019 will finally be over.

2020 will be, with hindsight, the year that you can look back clearly upon.

Re: 2020-a significant number?

Hi,
Number 2020 often appears as a marking number on aircrafts or boats. The year 2020 is going to be a leap year that is going to start on Wednesday. Many events are going to take place in the year 2020 that are long expected by us.

Re: 2020-a significant number?

2020 is a significant number because it's exactly half of a number that is divisble by 2.

This was prophezised by Nostradamus I think.

No. It means the " numerologists"

Get your "bucket list" together

Nostradamus and his predictions for 2020

Believing in his predictions eventually comes down to a personal point of view.

Supposedly, the French seer predicted that a great earthquake would hit the American continent sometime in the year 2020. He is believed to have predicted how in the “New World–the West Lands” the major geological catastrophe will most likely occur.

Economic Crisis in 2020. Nostradamus supposedly foresaw how 2020 would be marked by a major Economic crisis; Bankruptcy, recession, and dark times for the global economy. Nostradamus supposedly also foresaw the 2008 crisis.

An abrupt rise in sea level. We know that climate change is a big issue in the world right now. Nostradamus, however, is believed to have predicted hundreds of years ago how the global sea level would change the world in 2020. Nostradamus supposedly penned down in his quatrains how parts of what we know today as Antarctica will melt causing the global rise in sea levels by several meters.

Global warming will apparently be felt in 2020. The French seer is supposedly said to have foreseen that catastrophic–massive–storm will be registered in 2020. Many of these storms will turn into catastrophic hurricanes.

Nostradamus supposedly may have warned us about a possible major global conflict: “In the city of God, there will be a great thunder. Two brothers torn apart by Chaos while the fortress endures. The great leader will succumb The third big war will begin when the big city is burning.” This quatrain is supposedly interrupted as a possible new, world war.
