Misleading title! I thought he meant where humans would be safe from war or crime when I looked at the title.

When they do it, it's "being smart and responsible." when we do it, we're thrown into the looney bin.

A better question could be = why the most noxious multinational companies (Carlisle, Halliburton )are spending big money in this " seed safe " ?
At watching the usual behaviour of these companies, they always prefered the death of folks around their plants (Bhopal ) to any loss of ten Rupies .
The question = What is the goal of this costly caves ?

i read about this ages ago. Apparently it is the truth. So probably it is truth as well that in time of 30 or 50 years all ice will melt.
probably 30, because people wont stop eating meat and meet farming creates the bigest carbon print.

Why are they doing this NOW I wonder. Is this project really all that casual as they say it is? How imminent do they think the "end of the world" is in order for them to build this?
Not that Im even scared of judgment day, but this seems a bit offm

The seed vault is not for Global warming, it for Nuclear War....Europeans worry about non issues, Nuclear proliferation now that is worrisome...

Are these Santos seeds or real ones that can repoduce themselves? Maybe these are the seeds they confiscated from the private farmers from all over the world.

"never put all your eggs in one basket"

The old adage holds true even now. There should be atleast two such seed vaults adequately distanced from each other.
