WASHINGTON (AP) — Wenk's Yellow Hots, Pico de Gallos and the unpredictably hot San Juan "Tsiles" chili peppers have safely arrived at a "doomsday" vault in the Arctic.
Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Md., says he and other congressmen delivered seeds from the pepper varieties on Sunday to a Norwegian seed bank on the remote Svalbard archipelago.
Operators say the Svalbard Global Seed Vault has the world's most diverse repository of crop seeds and is a safeguard against war or natural disasters that could wipe out food crops.

The seeds came from a Department of Agriculture collection in Colorado. In addition to peppers, seeds for plants including peanuts and melons were sent to the vault.

I am glad this seed vault exists. Something tells me we are going to be relying on it one day.

It's a shame they're not taking more civil defense measures - organizing infrastructure restoration volunteers, stockpiling - survival hardware, water filtration, fuel, generators, medical supllies, pharmaceuticals and other necessities. Lot's of people are going to die needlessly.
