Where's Our Quake?
Well, the December 10-12 major earthquake hasn't shown up yet (at least as of press time). Possibilities? 1) The predictive linguistics could have gotten it wrong or 2) Could be off by a number of days (window continues into January) and 3) - this is the one perplexing me - when there's a really big event, we don't have a reliable way to pick out years. In other words, when something huge comes along ('death of the dollar' for example) we have been seeing that in the data for a couple of years now as a November event, but may not be until Nov. 2009 or 2010...
Beginning on October 7, 2008 and running through March 2009, they foresee a calamitous period on an epic scale. America will be beset by a variety of problems, which they broke down as 45-48% related to the economy, 40% concerning the military, and the rest associated with natural disasters. Between 2 and 22 million lives could be lost or seriously impacted, they estimated, possibly related to a "global coastal event" in 2009. On Dec. 10-12th, 2008, a large quake could hit the Pacific Northwest, they added.

It's awesome to be right all the time.
Some people would think it's a curse- But me?
I just, love bein' right.
Now where's that fat juicy apology?
Has it been posted yet, or are we all still waiting?

Depends on how large scale the event is......locally its difficult, but region wide is a bit easier as weather patterns are examined on a macro scale. Again its hard for me to say, because I am not in the climate section and work in Australia, not North America. On a macro scale, the probability of events can be forecast up to almost 12 months in advance
It doesnt surprise me that web bot may have got it correct though, taking into account the wealth of climatic and long term forecasts that are available on the web at the moment. I would be more surprised if web bot didnt examine data packages from anywhere and just came out with it from no where, but since it didnt, i cant say I am impressed.
By the way, who is translating the web bot "predictions"? And why are we only hearing web bot has predicted these events after they have occured? Bit suspicious in my opinion

He's usually quite accurate.
STOCKHOLM: An earthquake measuring 4.7 on the Richter scale hit southern Sweden early Tuesday, the Seismological Institute at Uppsala University
said, but no damage was immediately reported.
The quake, which hit at 6:20 am (0520 GMT), had its epicentre some 59 kilometres (36 miles) southeast of Sweden's third-largest city Malmoe, the institute said.
Media reports indicated the shock was felt throughout southern Sweden and northern Denmark, including the Danish capital Copenhagen, as buildings and homes shook but no damage was reported.
Earthquakes of this magnitude are rare in Scandinavia.
"For Sweden this is a very big quake," Reynar Boedvarsson of the Seismological Institute told Swedish news agency TT.
"It's not dangerous for people but there may be cracks in building constructions," he said.

Insignificant to you perhaps. Of course I'm sure you thought the one that hit the Illinois/Kentucky/Indiana area last year was insignificant as well even though it caused structural damage.

Today being Dec. 1st - there are only 10 days left until the time frame of Dec. 10 -15th of 2 Huge (maybe biggest ever) Earthquakes to hit the U.S. and then somewhere else in the world.
According to the transcript of the radio interview to which questioningall posted a link some posts back, what he said was:

I would also still like to point out that the ALTA run from August 8th stated clearly that the window for this quake was from Dec. 10 thru Jan. 5. I think most of you were too busy killing the messenger instead of actually reading the message. The dates from Dec. 10-15 were considered hot due to the cluster of language centered around that time.
So the next time we do an earthquake predication… which is for December 10th through 12th.
I did not saw any forecast from the web-bot about storms in the Autumn, what I saw was a forecast for a cold winter.
You say you aren't very impressed with the web bot predicting storms because they are part of any long term weather forecast.
Sorry, I did not saw that Italy forecast, could you please tell me when it was made? Thanks.
The web bot seems fairly accurate on these two events considering the storm in New England and the storm in Italy, with both being predicted 4 months out for a very specific window.
I am not a "hater", but I have yet to see how the forecast was correct, and all the posts that I have made about it (both here and in the other thread) have been ignored.
Everyone wants to bash the earthquake aspect of the ALTA run because it hasn't happened, but none of the haters on here have anything to say about these other specific events.
