The Doomsday Vault: Now open for business.

This may seem very sci-fi (being an Arctic fortress and all) but loss of crop diversity is actually very serious because biological diversity is necessary to life. I find stuff like this extremely fascinating and exciting but in this scary dystopian kind of way. It’s frightening when you really think about it—that there’s this super-secure world bank that will preserve seeds for when our crops are blighted and our national banks have failed or been destroyed and the world is at it’s end. Well, maybe it’s only dystopian if you think about it that way… Anyway, on with the linkage!
