Came across the following article this afternoon and had a hard time deciding on where to post it, in the civil liberties group or this ResourceWatch group

I have to shake my head in disbelieve that we allow our precious water and energy resources to be used for such activities and systems.  It makes me really ponder what my answer will be when my kids ask me why people do such things. 

The Highlights:

1,000,000 square foot facility (Yes 1 Million - no fat fingers on the zeros there!)

65 megawatts of power (equivalent of 65,000 homes)

1.7 million gallons of water per day to cool Our Data.

Time to go save some electricity and hang up my clothes on the line.  Don't think the NSA can tap that one.
