Google is racing to encrypt the torrents of information that flow among its data centers around the world in a bid to thwart snooping by the NSA and the intelligence agencies of foreign governments, company officials said Friday.
...
“It’s an arms race,” said Eric Grosse, vice president for security engineering at Google, based in Mountain View, Calif. “We see these government agencies as among the most skilled players in this game.”

Will encrypting actually do anything? I mean if they give the NSA or anyone the key....

The NSA (and other governments/corporations) has methods to get around encryption, but it does slow them down quite a bit, and forces them to be more specific in their queries. Widespread encryption blankets, like what it appears Google is attempting, make mass collection of data highly inefficient, if not useless.
