Enviros push 'public trust' as trump card over oil and gas influence

Last Dec. 19 was a gratifying day for John Dernbach. In 162 pages the state's highest court had resurrected a provision in Pennsylvania's Constitution that had long ago faded into obscurity. The forgotten measure is an environmental rights amendment nestled in Article 1, among core protections of civil rights and due process. The amendment gives people a right to clean air, pure water and conservation of natural resources. It hands environmentalists an opportunity to transform the natural gas debate in Pennsylvania and beyond.

"So, this is a wind farm," John Matherly said, nodding at a drab blue-and-black portal that blinked onto the computer screen. Thirty-year-old Matherly is the father of the controversial search engine Shodan, which finds things connected to the Internet, whether it's a webcam or a wind turbine's control system. For the U.S. Department of Homeland Security or a power company, Matherly's one-man security outfit based in Austin, Texas, is a way to suss out where companies are most vulnerable to cyber intrusions.
