Dear List,

 From the Washington Post:
Scientists are frantically copying U.S. climate data, fearing it might 
vanish under Trump

WHat I found disturbing about this - aside from all things Trump, of 
course - is that there hasn't been any consideration of the possibility 
of governments 'rescinding data', and that government servers are secure 
and available.

Emergencies are inevitable.

Has there been any work on govts withdrawing data? Any cases of it?
