Americans' Predictions for 2007:
Seventy percent of people in the U.S. predict a major natural disaster in the country and an equal percentage expects worsening global warming. Also, 29 percent think it likely that the U.S. will withdraw its troops from Iraq.

Among other predictions for the U.S. in 2007:

_35 percent predict the military draft will be reinstated.

_35 percent predict a cure for cancer will be found.

_25 percent anticipate the second coming of Jesus Christ.

_19 percent think scientists are likely to find evidence of extraterrestrial life.

I am not so sure about Jesus, though

It is remarkable that attacks (the type that is triggered by the yellow, orange and red) does seem to figure in their predictions. They must have caught up to the fear mongering. Good sign.
