"The powers-that-be won't allow this. The NSA is watching everything, and they'll find some way to shut it down."
No they won't, because they need this just as much as the rest of us do.
NSA people need a functioning biosphere just as much as you and I.
NSA people need to make sure society doesn't devolve into chaos or totalitarian oppression, just as much as you and I.
And NSA people cannot hand over this world to their children if there isn't a world to hand over. If the biosphere collapses, and human civilization falls apart, NSA people and their children and grandchildren will be just as screwed as everyone else's.
We're all in this together.
The NSA and other agencies have a lot of power and influence at their disposal, so guys, if you're reading, join in and lend a hand! The Planet could use your skills!
