Doomsday vault, miscalculated for climate change

May 23, 2017 | Climate, EcoJustice, Uncategorized

How can the most high-tech vault to store seeds for the world, for all time, completely miscalculate for climate change? Norway completely missed the mark when calculating for increases in temperatures due to arctic climate impacts. This vault was supposed to protect the integrity of earth’s genetic diversity for 100s if not 1000s of years, as a proactive measure against environmentally-destructive, human tendencies. It didn’t even last 10 years! This is what happens when you have siloed approaches to complex problems…architects didn’t even bother to consult long-term climate projections. We need collaboration and strategic systems thinking to craft the solutions for our future
