The Norwegian Seed Bunker

Mysterious Informant in Austin sends this article from the Beeb concerning Norway's first tentative steps to bring the Morrow Project to life.

It seems that the Norweigians are building a vault to house samples of all crop seeds so they can be preserved in the event of a global disaster, greatly facillitating recovery.

This is actually a good idea, the only fault I can find with it is the long commute from Virginia to Norway...either the Eisenhower interstate system is going to have to invest in some impressive bridges, or we need some of these on this side of the pond.
