Solutions from Underground: How Mushrooms Can Heal the Planet with Paul Stamets

Our biosphere is quickly changing, eroding life support systems that have allowed humans to thrive for thousands of years. Unless we make a course correction in the very near future, species diversity will continue to plummet, with humans being not only the primary cause, but one of
the victims. Paul Stamets is groundbreaking Mycologist whose research demonstrates how fungi can help with oil clean up, habitat restoration, insect control and the treatment of smallpox. In this talk he discusses how our close evolutionary relationship to fungi can be the basis for better health for ourselves and a sustainable future for our planet.
