VERY interesting article. The countries of the world are invited
to store crop seeds in a doomsday vault in Norway. I find this
interesting. What, if anything, do the people running this
vault know? Any NWO connections? Any religious connections?
This kinda reminds me of the Noah's Ark story in the bible - an
ark to save crop seeds for after the world is in meteorological

My questions - if the world is in such bad shape that the countries
crops have been wiped out, massive starvation and world
famine as well as world wars (which we know would happen
in such an instance) ... how would the survivors in each of
the countries get to Norway to get the seeds and distribute
them to the people of each of their countries? If the world
does spiral down to that situation, then the strongest country
to take over Norway and get the seeds would definately be
THE superpower to deal with, wouldn't it?

They say it won't be guarded ... except by polar bears.
hmmm ... how long until it is taken over in a serious crisis??


Disaster Planning: Norway builds a 'doomsday vault'

Norway has revealed a plan to build a "doomsday vault" hewn out of an
Arctic mountain to store two million crop seeds in the event of a global

The store is designed to hold all the seeds representing the world's crops
and is being built to safeguard future food supplies in the event of
widespread environmental collapse.

"If the worst came to the worst, this would allow the world to reconstruct
agriculture on this planet," Cary Fowler, the director of the Global Crop
Diversity Trust, told New Scientist magazine. The Norwegian government
is planning to start work on the seed vault next year when construction
engineers will drill into a sandstone mountain on the island of
Spitsbergen, part of the Svalbard archipelago, about 600 miles from the
North Pole.

OOOPS. Sorry. DIdn't see that folks were talking
about it here -
I thought it was a world current event, not a fragile earth thing.
