From alpha _ome ga_alp ha@yah oo.dk:

Re: Plans for “Noah’s Ark” seed vault unveiled (Feb. 9): The idea of saving the crop seeds makes perfect logical sense.

The proposed site seems to somewhat temporary though. If scientists are correct about ice-ages not always being slow processes, but can also be rapid, surely the entire area would be under the ice-sheet, several kilometers thick.

Modern building techniques may be more advanced than previous eras, but I doubt sincerly that any structure would be able to withstand glacial pressures and movements.

Just a thought.
