Doomsday Vault Protects World’s Seeds on “60 Minutes”

Doomsday Vault Protects World’s Seeds on “60 Minutes”

Svalbard Global Seed Vault opened its doors on February 26, 2008 to the world. This ‘Doomsday Vault’ is part of an effort to protect the planet’s diminishing biodiversity. The facility was dug deep into the frozen rock of an Arctic mountain on Spitsbergen, one of 3 Arpichelago Islands in Norway. Any seeds stored here will be secure for centuries, or longer. As well as protecting against the loss of multicultural diversity, the vault is going to provide the salvation for restarting agricultural production at the regional or global level in the wake of a natural or man-made disaster. Contingencies for climate change have been worked into the plan. Even in the worst-case scenarios of global warming, the vault rooms will remain naturally frozen for up to 200 years.
