DOOMSDAY. What a day to be at "The Doomsday Seed Vault". But investing heavily in the Global Crop Diversity Trust, and ensuring the survival of seeds from Azerbaijan to Nigeria, plus his favorite varieties of chili peppers, in the face of climate change, was worth all the money in the world. Any human effort. It was hard not to walk between the row after row after row of stored genetic diversity, and not find yourself wondering if this had not been attempted before. Thank God it was friday.
