What is a seed vault doing on an island in the Arctic, 600 miles from the North Pole?
The Svalbard Seed Vault in Norway.
Have you thought about what will happen if there is a food blight? And if only one company owns all the seeds, and all these seeds are sterilized seeds through terminator gene technology?
In this age of waning food-source diversity, it is important we maintain a seed bank such as the Svalbard Facility so we will have the ability to grow food if our own source has shriveled. You want biodiversity to avoid extinction.
And let us sleep soundly knowing the seeds are there, in extreme isolation from humanity. And let us hope they leave a note about where to find that extra key to the vault front door.
