These guys (from urban survival and related) are monitoring the language as it appears on the everyday basis on the Internet, in various texts, headlines, etc. and trying to use it as a tool of prediction. The idea is that future events are anticipated in the language as if what people are saying is the result of the concentration of certain intents which are not yet fully articulated as events.
If you analyze it a little, you may notice the catch words, which I have extracted from the OP, that point toward a disaster at the Poles where the mountains of ice crash into the sea due to global warming or other causes like earthquakes causing a rise in water levels across the globe resulting in a deluge that causes shock and trauma.

Webbot is stupid and it can't forsee the future. It finds what people are talking about the future and goes off of that.
And people can't predict the future.

I just counted the occurances of all words mentioned in this thread.
My understanding is that the webbot works in a similar way to this.
They obviously have a bunch of data cleansing formulas on top, but I just looked at what came out and kind of guessed.
I took the data to count several posts back and the top word was "the" with 253 occurances. The top word with any meaning was "webbot" with 26 occurances, although looking again the top occurance may be "time" with 27 occurances.
Its easy enough to crunch the data, but they are experts in semantics who can interpret the data better than I can.
I just fancied having a look for my own personal interests really, but if you want to look at the data I will make it available.
Note we do NOT use 'conscious expressions' located on the internet, nor simple word counting techniques.
