The seed ark

RedwoodOne of the stories I find so ridiculous in the Torah is the story of Noah and his Ark. It’s like God forgot to tell him to take any plant life onboard! So what gave? Luckily modern day scientists do not have to depend on such a backward deity and will be able to save us with their ‘seed bank’ …NOT. Massive effort underway to save endangered seeds.

This ‘seed bank’ idea is just marginally better than doing absolutely nothing at all. Unfortunately a complete overhaul of the world economic system will be the only thing that can save the planet from total extermination of biological variety. Anything short of this complete overhaul just will not get the job done.
