Arctic Doomsday Vault for Seeds to Open

Norway is so sure that we are going to ruin the planet that they are willing to shell out 9 million dollars to give people some hope that life will be preserved after we’ve all incinerated ourselves.

A ”doomsday” vault built to withstand an earthquake or nuclear strike is ready to open deep in the permafrost of an Arctic mountain where it will protect millions of seeds from manmade and natural disasters.
The Svalbard Global Seed Vault will officially be inaugurated on Tuesday, less than a year after crews started drilling in Norway’s Svalbard archipelago, about 620 miles from the North Pole.
The vault, which Norway built at a cost of about $9.1 million, has the capacity to store 4.5 million seed samples from around the globe, shielding them from climate change, wars, natural disasters and other threats.
