How Mushrooms can Save the World (video)

Paul Stamets' full presentation showing how mushrooms can help us heal ourselves and bio-remediate the entire planetary ecosystem, from UPLIFT 2012 in Byron Bay.
According to the Doctrine of Signatures, nature gives indications of what will heal what. Do mushroom clouds suggest that mushrooms can clean up the damage? This is the US's first post WW II nuclear test, Operation Crossroads, Marshall Islands (themysteryworld.com).
Paul Stamets describes a series of epiphanies on how to shape our world with fungi in ways that are sustainable and regenerative, resourceful and fun.
  • He shares his patented application of mycelium (mushroom roots) as an alternative to synthetic pesticides;
  • his regenerative "life boxes" that serve as shipping materials until water and soil are added;
  • and his newest invention -- mushroom cultivation centers that convert fungal sugars into ethanol, while providing resources for enriching soil, growing food, and metabolizing pollution in the environment that encourages community participation.

Mushrooms will never look the same after this presentation. This speech was presented at the 2006 Bioneers National Conference and is part of the Ecological Design, Vol. 2 and Protecting and Restoring Nature, Vol. 1. Since 1990, Bioneers has acted as a fertile hub of social and scientific innovators with practical and visionary solutions for the world's most pressing environmental and social challenges.

To experience talks like this, please join us at the Bioneers National Conference each October and regional Bioneers Resilient Community Network gatherings held nationwide throughout the year.
