I was reading a National Geo. magazine from a few months ago when I came across an article about how scientists have made this gigantic bunker under the ice in antartica, that can withstand a blast from a nuke, and filled the bunker with over three million seeds from various plants like wheat, carrot, barley, peas, etc.. This is to be used in case of a nuclear war. There are two main things about this article that stuck out in my mind: 1. This seems sort of pointless in my mind for many small reasons. The soil after a nuclear war would be ladden with mass ratiation and therefore unsuable for growing crops. If a nuclear war were to happen, we would nuke ourselves bake into the stone age and therefore be unable to have access to this bunker, let alone antartica itself. 2. Is the threat of nuclear war this iminant that we have to make this bunker. Comments or opinions?
