The Breakfast Of Survivors

The Global Arctic Seed Vault in Svalbard, Norway is now full. [Click on the post headline above to visit the website.]

People have finally begun to realize that war and famine are going to bring on a "doomsday" situation.

It's no longer a question of when. Because it's no longer a question. It's a fact.

And some very responsible human beings are now saving seeds for that very doom day.

What choice do we have? And what's next? A survivor space station? An underground ark?

Some very aware people are running for their lives. They're storing their acorns away like squirrels because they know that a global catastrophe is going to happen.

I will prepare my fresh potatoes and onions tonight. And I will think about what would happen if I went to the store and they weren't available anymore. No carrots, no beans, no tomatoes, no bananas, no oranges, no bread. Empty bins and nothing on the shelves but dust.

What if every single food store in North America [as well as the rest of the world] suddenly stopped selling food because there was nothing left to sell?

Sure, there's canned goods. But how long would they last?

How.Long.WILL.They.Last?
