Arctic 'Doomsday Vault' Filled With World's Seeds Comes to Life

European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso and Nobel Peace Prize winning environmentalist Wangari Matai will be among the personalities present at the inauguration of the vault, which has been carved into the permafrost of a remote Arctic mountain, just 1000km from the North Pole.

The vault, made up of three spacious cold chambers each measuring 27m by 10m, creates a long trident-shaped tunnel bored into the sandstone and limestone.

It has the capacity to hold up to 4.5 million batches of seeds from all known varieties of the planet’s main food crops, making it possible to re-establish plants if they disappear from their natural environment or are obliterated by major disasters.

So, it was OFFICIALLY inaugurated as of yesterday;
How did Monsanto get the E.U. on Board?
They used to be AGAINST GMO crops?

Is this another step to domination with their terminator seeds?
Why would they be so open about it?

F. William Engdahl of, says

On this God-forsaken island Bill Gates is investing tens of his millions along with the Rockefeller Foundation, Monsanto Corporation, Syngenta Foundation and the Government of Norway, among others, in what is called the ‘doomsday seed bank.’ Officially the project is named the Svalbard Global Seed Vault on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen, part of the Svalbard island group.

Just like when Joseph interpreted the dream of Pharaoh that there would be a famine in the world and that they should 'put back' seed for food and also to sell to other nations.
Then the twelve tribes were re-united when Josephs' brothers recognized him.
That is what will happen when Jesus returns after the Tribulation and all Israel will be saved!

Is there any significance to the date Feb. 24?
I know how important dates are to the elite.
The only reference significant is the Valentines' day of Romania being the 24th, yesterday.

"Dragobete is a traditional Romanian holiday, celebrated on February 24. Dragobete was the son of Baba Dochia.

The day is known as "the day when the birds are getting engaged". Around this day, the birds begin to assemble their nests and mate. During the day, considered locally the first day of spring, the boys and girls pick up spring flowers and sing together. The frozen snow still present in many villages used to be collected and the water from it used as a magic potion by young girls during the rest of the year. This day is supposed to protect one from the fever which produces shivers and illness. If the weather allows it, girls and boys are supposed to pick snowdrops or other early spring plants for someone they are courting. Dragobete is also known as being the day of lovers for Romanians."

Here's another thread about it;

and another one from when they first began the project;

well when the big boys make a move, everyone else knows the time is near......

theres that preverbal writing on the walls....

but why the north pole, why not somewhere high and cold like a mountain range? If something happened how is anyone going to get there....

would think a hiding place in some remote canadian wilderness would be a better place at least its on a land mass that isnt comprised of ice.

I saw this in the news few hours ago

Thing that struck me was where theywere keeping them!

Svalbard? why? and why 400meters inside a glacier?

whats wrong with the mainland? they say its a insurance policy against climate change but my spider sences think they know more than they are letting on,

Now ive not yet bought into all the end of the world theories that go around on here ,but when you see something like this, it fits nicley into some of them!

As long as Mr Fothergill keeps some morning glory seeds for me I'll be happy!

Why The Arctic???
I don't know.
Maybe to provide protection from crazy, hungry, mobs. An island fortress.
Are these patented seeds? By Monsanto?
Because if they are, other seeds can be 'terminated' and then these WILL be the ONLY vegetable seeds!

it really doesnt make sense, put the vault in ice, so it can be used when we have a climate change problem? lol seems to me this lil freezer is gonna be 1st hit when something goes wrong, being its at the most major site of world effect and changes... if anything happens in the worl naturewise the north pole normaly is the 1st to start talking about it....

why not a secret bunker insidea box inside a tube of liquid Nitrogen.

You need more than one, don't put all your eggs in one basket.

Yeah _Pheonix_ , I must say that is one of the "smarter" single line answers I've seen yet! But seriously, It would make perfect sense to have a "seed bank" out in the middle of nowhere, on a damn island, where it could not be easily access by the public, AND, let us know about it, because you know "they" (whomever that may be) have another, or 50 other of these banks, all over the place!

First rule of government spending: "Why have one, when you can have two for twice the price?"

posted on Feb, 26 2008 @ 07:24 PM
This one would be calling the attention away from others...those others would be kept out of the media and from the people's knowledge. If something serious do happen, this frozen seed box will pop like pop corn...

You may be right.
It might be just an 'outing' of the plan to ration food sources.
Just letting us know that only THOSE are the protected seeds.(No matter how many there may really be.) So that we're not too surprised if the time comes for selling it to us or making us work for food.

plus if this thing is heavily under lock and key, how is a doomsday survivor supposed to get inside?
This leads me to think they already thought about that, and know that they will be the ones to be able to open it, so therefore they must also have a back up plan of survival already in place. where is the disclosure on that?

posted on Feb, 29 2008 @ 08:07 PM
The disclosure is, "We are running out of viable foodsources, do what we want and you can get them, (for a price)"

There will be less panic, if we are warned before hand.
They KNOW we can't break in there in an emergency, that's not the issue.
