Friday Fungus: Mushrooms and saving the planet


Feeling lazy - watch this and learn. A really fascinating talk from the godfather of mycology, Paul Stamets. In this he explains how fungi mycelium works like the internet and how we are a planet of mushrooms!

I read an article last week that put the case for doubling CO2 in air. Apparently this would increase crop yields by almost 50% without putting control of the food supply in corporate hands. It would eliminate the need for GM foods

Clever mushrooms, scientific vegetables. Are we humans really needed?
