Due to the melting of permafrost, the “storage of the day of judgment”

In Norway, the permafrost began to melt on the island of Spitsbergen, as a result of which the World Seed Storage was drowned, which is called the “relic of the day of judgment”.

The publication notes that the seeds as a result of flooding were not damaged. The World Seed Storage was built in 2008 to create a seed stock from around the world in the event of a global catastrophe.

The repository is located at an altitude of 130 meters above sea level: it was assumed that this will save the building from flooding, tsunamis or rising sea levels.
