An enduring obsession! Mycologist Paul Stamets describes how mushooms can save the world. Watch his TED video here.
‘Stamets believes that we can solve major problems through figuring out how to coexist with fungus. He asks us to think about mycelium – it holds soil togehter, holding 30,000 times its mass. It’s a powerful tool for disassembly, turning material into humus and soil.’ (source website-accessed december 2, 2012)
