The US Government's TOP SECRET Emergency Food Supply: What Is the Arctic Seed Vault?
Does the US government have an emergency food supply?
There's been a lot of talk lately about the possibility of a food shortage in the United States. Some people are convinced that the government has an emergency food supply hidden away somewhere, while others believe that we're all on our own when it comes to getting through a crisis. At The Survival Prep Store, we think it's important to be prepared for anything. That's why we offer emergency food rations and other survival supplies to help you get through tough times.
So, does the US government have an emergency food supply? While we can't say for sure, I wouldn't put all of my faith in them. It may be naïve to think that the government has a responsibility to protect its citizens... If there was a major emergency or disaster, it's likely that the government would step in and provide food and other necessities. but there wouldn't be nearly enough. The other issue here is inflation.
What causes inflation?
This is a question that has been asked for centuries, and there is no simple answer. Different economists have different theories about what causes inflation, but most agree that it is a complex phenomenon that can be caused by a variety of factors. In this blog post, we'll explore some of the most common causes of inflation and discuss how they can impact your prepping strategy.
Many causes of inflation include:
-Printing too much money
-A decrease in the supply of goods or services
-An increase in taxes
-A decrease in productivity
-War or other major events
All of these things can cause prices to go up, which means that your dollar won't go as far. This is why it's also important to have a diversified prepping strategy that includes gold, silver, and other hard assets. When the value of the dollar drops, these investments will become more valuable.
What is the Arctic Seed Vault?
The Svalbard Global Seed Vault is located in the Arctic Circle, on an island called Spitsbergen. It was built to store a copy of the world's seeds, in case of a global disaster.
The survival seed vault is a concrete bunker, built into a mountain. It has three chambers, each with its own door. The vault can store up to four million seeds. The seeds are stored in sealed packets, on metal racks. The vault is kept at -18 degrees Celsius (0 degrees Fahrenheit). The Doomsday Vault is not open to the public. It is only open to scientists and researchers. The seeds are not for sale. They are only for research purposes and just recently reached over 500,000 unique samples to become the most diverse collection of crops in the world.
The new arrivals included a mold-resistant bean from Colombia and soybeans from the United States.
It's doors opened in 2008 and has been used six times, to store seeds from different parts of the world. The most recent shipment was from Syria, in 2018. The Syrian seed bank was damaged by a bomb the seeds were quickly evacuated to the Doomsday Vault. The Syrian seed bank was the first Middle Eastern seed bank to be stored in the vault.
The arctic seed vault is an international initiative dedicated to preserving the diversity of our global food supply. The Heirloom Seeds stored in this facility are protected from extreme weather conditions and natural disasters, providing safekeeping for these precious resources that can be used if necessary during times when humanity faces starving because there isn't enough cultivated land available on Earth alone sustain everyone who wants access!
The future depends upon preserved heirlooming -- not just now but always--because it's through maintaining older traditions . Not any one person knows what will work best today or tomorrow; plus gene-pooling means more options to come up with unique solutions.
These milestones shed light on crop diversity efforts. It's a noteworthy topic worth exploring more. Among the key resources to check out:
