What follows is a very worthwhile read on data security.
…now imagine if you had access to millions of similar data sets. You could easily draw maps, tracing communication and movement. You could see which individuals, families or groups were communicating with one another. You could identify any social group and determine its major actors.

It wouldn’t surprise me if the entire climate skeptic movement has already been mapped out and is now being monitored. What’s next? IRS audits? Harassment? We’ve already seen it with the Tea Party.
Warning: German Greens
I agree with much of what is written in the report. But I will warn readers not to trust any German Green. They are no better with the truth than any other historical misfits when it comes to climate science and environmental issues. These people are environmental tyrants dressed in liberty sheepskin.
