How optimistic or pessimistic are you as you look at where we might be in 2020, and why?

not so optimistic as there is a lot of discussion and little is or seems to be done. feel uneasy as people generally more keen to prove or disprove theory wrong whilst not trying to act to slow down efficiently human activity impact over long term. What would be the point to try and do something when it is too late? Better take measures now and limit effects linked to industrial/non industrial activities now and discover that we were a bit too worried than be sorry!
