we don't win against nature on these things.
Tell it to the Dutch.
if we got serious we could do it in a decade without trouble
I agree - and actually since the economy is demand constrained, shifting energy sources will be expansionary.
you should be worried.
Not really. Even without any containment measures, an infected person passes the disease to only 1 other person. If there was a disease as deadly as Ebola, where that number was ~20 people (as it is with measles for example), then I would be worried.
The low transmission rate is why the outbreak has fewer than 10,000 people after several months.
a reasonable expectation of privacy
You do not understand the meaning of this phrase. It makes no reference to the existence of technological barriers, of any kind, to the breach of privacy. You have a reasonable expectation of privacy for a sealed envelope, even though it is trivial to read the contents of that envelope.
what goes onto the Internet
How is talking about "the internet" here even relevant? There is a huge difference in the privacy and security of data transfers made through different web services alone, let alone all extant networking protocols.
Under current US law, obtaining unauthorized access to privately served files is clearly criminal. Nude photographs are of note solely due to their sexual content.
Can you explain why you think it is incorrect or illogical to describe crimes pertaining to sex or sexual content as "sex crimes?"
