Forecast: Big quake likely in Calif.

LOS ANGELES - California faces an almost certain risk of being rocked by a strong earthquake by 2037, scientists said Monday in the first statewide temblor forecast.

New calculations reveal there is a 99.7 percent chance a magnitude 6.7 quake or larger will strike in the next 30 years. The odds of such an event are higher in Southern California than Northern California, 97 percent versus 93 percent.
How old are the scientists predicting that, I wonder? Old enough to be long retired by the time the prediction runs out?

I hereby predict that the citizens of Wisconsin will vote to place all governmental power into the hands of the BBA by the year 2058.
