+ - Sweedish Doomsday Seed Bank

Submitted by millermiller
millermiller (666) writes "From the BBC: The Arctic vault will act as a back-up store for a global network of seed banks financially supported by the trust. Dr Fowler said that a proportion of the seeds housed at these banks would be deposited at Svalbard, which will act as a "living Fort Knox". Although the vault was designed to protect the specimens from catastrophic events, he added that it could also be used to replenish national seed banks."

The meat is rotten, but the booze is holding out. Computer translation of "The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."
