mushrooms to save the world

Paul Stamets gives a 16 minute presentation on fungi and mycelium. In his view, aside from the fantastic sizes and capabilities of fungi to produce antibiotics, they can also solve several large and normal problems. Well worth the view, especially to hear him describe how a pile of soil and diesel fuel reacted to dosage with spores compared with other treatment methods.
