Work Begins on Arctic Seed Vault

DCowern Re:My experiences with seed storage (89 comments)

The sad part comes when in 50 years this vault is eagerly opened and found to only contain many many dead weevils.

To be honest, if I had to choose between a barren wasteland with no hope of regenerating plant life for millions of years and the potential for some surviving seeds, I'm going to have to go with the lesser of the two weevils.
