Maybe the seed bank should be moved into a salt mine.

I heard about the seed bank flooding.

The term Global Warming, to Climate Change (for the ill informed) should be now be called Climate Catastrophy.

If the U.S. weaned itself off fossile fuel how much would the U.S. save on millitary spending? Without the addiction to oil the U.S. likely would be able to stop supporting funding Wahhabism.

Stunning drops in solar and wind costs turn global power market upside down

The world built more renewables for far less money last year, report UN and Bloomberg New Energy Finance.

Stunning drops in the cost of wind and solar energy have turned the global power market upside down.

‘Doomsday’ seed vault meant to survive global disasters breached by climate change

The Global Seed Vault

The seed bank designed to preserve the world’s crops and plants in the event of global disaster isn’t prepared to withstand the greatest global disaster facing our planet: global warming. Melting permafrost on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen, where the Svalbard Global Seed Vault is located, has seeped into the seed bank, raising questions of how the structure will be able to survive in the future as the Earth keeps warming.

The seed vault is built in an abandoned Arctic coal mine, deep inside a mountain. It contains about a million packets of seeds from almost every country in the world, representing “the most diverse collection of food crop seeds.” In 2015, the ongoing civil war in Syria prompted researchers in the Middle East to withdraw some seeds to replace those previously stored in a gene bank in war-torn Aleppo.

The structure was built underneath the permafrost so it could be “a fail-safe seed storage facility, built to stand the test of time — and the challenge of natural or man-made disasters,” as the seed bank’s website says. But oh, the irony. Unusually warm temperatures in the winter have caused rain, and the permafrost has been melting. “It was not in our plans to think that the permafrost would not be there and that it would experience extreme weather like that,” Hege Njaa Aschim, from the Norwegian government, which owns the vault, told The Guardian.

Fortunately, the water hasn’t flooded the vault itself. It only got to the entrance of the tunnel, where it froze. (The seeds are stored at minus 0.4 degrees Fahrenheit.) But the incident has raised questions over the durability of a seed bank that was supposed to operate without people’s intervention.
