In the wake of global warming and the genetic manipulation of seeds, many countries around the world are starting seed banks.
The latest seed bank will freeze seeds inside a mountain in Norway called Svalbard, where they will stay frozen and dry even if glaciers melt and sea levels rise. CNN quotes agricultural expert Cary Fowler as saying, “It will be the best freezer in the world by several orders of magnitude. The seeds will be safe there for decades?Svalbard is a safety backup?and we hope we never have to use it.”
