The Earth goes through cycles of volatility and cycles of stability. We are entering a time of increased global warming, more frequent and stronger
earthquakes, etc. Much of our data and technology wouldn't survive the smallest of catastrophes let alone a large-scale one.
I believe this is, at least in part, why we see a bit of "scrambling" to begin protecting information, artifacts, etc.
Plus, governments are trying to get their hands on as much information as possible -- all medical records, one huge clearing house/storage facility,
etc -- they better ensure they are protected come hell OR high water if they think anybody is going to trust them with all of this information. (not
that I do anyway, but I digress....)
