    “No genetically modified” and thus we return to the purple carrot

  • Matthew Churchward《Delta》

    So without genetically modified seeds there then you can have maze but not corn.

    Ok there are currently at least 47 self reinforcing feedback loops already triggered and baked into the cake whose cumulative effect should be exponential. The topper is the methane threat caused by melting permafrost check out posts by International Arctic Research Centre and their lead Scientist Natalia Sharakova. Anyway there should be a catastrophic global temperature rise that will trigger global agricultural failure coming to a planet near you.

    No drug related seeds basicly kills the idea of the project. Its a strange subjective valuation to allow to influence such a project.

    I wonder how long the seeds last in here. Do they ever have to get rid of the old seeds and replace them with new ones?

    Did anyone else wonder if they store all or any kinds of weed seeds? I'm sure they do - there are plants out there which are a lot worse to the human body than weed.

    There is actually 21.500 samples of cannabis seeds in the vault according to this report. So they are lying deliberately - for the best reasons.

  • Arctic Winter

    Ah. Of course they have drugs there. Like cannabis. It's just a secret to prevent people raiding the vault.

    They're retarded why don't they store cannabis and other natural substances? Because it's a "drug"? wow morons

    • J Thorsson
      J Thorsson 27 days ago

      Arctic winter i doubt that this is actually true. That would be insanity. First of all cannabis is extremely useful beyond just recreation and this is probably true for other substances. Even if it wasn't true you never know if something could be useful in the future. They can't be that dumb they just don't want people to know i guess.

    3:20 WTF?! Cannabis is medisin, im 100% sure that it would help against the epidemic stress/PTSD. + its a medisin for those with parkinson, and is a PLANT that has bin here on the planet for many million years. i dont understand that thinking

    • Jani Akujärvi
      Jani Akujärvi Month ago

      Yeah, I agree.
      But I think the custodian might have been lying since there are literally hundreds of plants and mushrooms that can be used recreatinally but which are important part of making modern medicines.

    I hate it when people say that GMOs are not included in something. GMOs include an extremely large number of plant based food that we eat because breeding crops is considered genetic modification. This means that rice, corn etc are all GMOs.

    Do they have a vault like that for animal "seeds"? So we can preserve the fauna of our world as well as flora?

  • Sean Steel

    The boxes are not even named, and the only way to know what's in it is by going to the internet and putting the code in ?? What if there is a global nuclear war? No more internet. The survivors will show up at the damn vault only to not know where the f*** is rice or wheat.

    So wait, no cannabis seeds? Do they have issues with cancer treatment drugs? Or industrial hemp? What about hemp oil or hemp hearts? Appreciate having people that do this but maybe a bit right wing. Also gmo’s are safe and so what if Norway doesn’t use them what about those that do use them?

    It seems a little counter productive to deny seeds from plants that may be poisonous or bases for drugs, as the idea is to preserve bio diversity... and plants, that are often rendered useless, actually help the ones we cultivate.

    Yes, it is a very important project, there should be 5-6 similar vaults around the planet, a few on the moon and one on planet mars. Once a species goes extinct, it is impossible to bring it back, imagine it happening to an important food crop.
    I heard that during the war in Syria many farms cultivating important food crops came to a halt and special varieties of chickpeas, wheat and lentils only found in Syria were threatened to become extinct, a heroic mission rescued many of these seeds, grew them in Lebanon and shipped the precious seeds to the vault in Norway! You yourself know how important it is to have a back up.
    Although the vault is a treasure of many of our food crops, it is missing some important medicinal plants!
