The Global Seed Vault may have already met its match in global warming

The Global Seed Vault is sometimes called the doomsday vault, as it is meant to store the Earth’s genetic bounty in the event of a natural or human-made disaster that wipes out vital crops needed to to sustain human and animal populations.

With a capacity to store 4.5 million crop varieties and 2.5 billion seeds, it’s billed as the world’s largest collection of crop diversity. 

While the designers of the vault seem to have taken the possibilities of nuclear wars and global pandemics into account, they may have given too little thought to one other serious threat: global warming.
