If you see this man on the streets, give him a big hug! I imagine a giant statue of him at some point in the future. The plaque will read, “Paul Stamets, the man who single-handedly saved the planet from a poisonous chemical death.” This is a perfect representation of the emerging of a new way of thinking. People like you and I are finally beginning to see a new way to live in harmony with our environment. The dreamers are awakening and its spreading like wildfire! Can it be possible that we can solve the worlds hunger problems by not destroying the world in the process?
Paul Stamets, a mycologist, patented a very customized form of entomopathogenic Fungi back in 2006. This fungi can create a nearly PERMANENT solution by dealing with over 200,000 different invasive and crop hungry insects. Normally, these insects would avoid these deadly fungi due to a presence of spores that act as warning signals to insects. Paul has genetically removed these spores and thus, the red flag that would keep insects away. The bugs eat the fungi, because it’s oh so yummy, bring some back to share with the queen (because she demands it), and then they all die by turning into the fungi itself. From the inside out. What’s left? A culture of more fungi to lie in wait for the next attack. And you can leave all your dishes and glasses in the cupboards and keep your pets and children at the house while it’s happening!
This completely safe and 100% organic form of pest control creates a whole new world order for agriculture. Once the fungi is present, it stays almost indefinitely, which means those pests won’t return. Do you have carpenter ants or termites slowly eating away at your house? Just place a little petri dish of this fungi on your window sill and walk away. No more tenting and dusting your entire home with deadly toxic chemicals.
Oops, you spilled 20 tons of oil in a nature preserve? Clumsy oaf! Drop a few spores of another type of fungi and it will actually break down the oil and add nutrients back into the environment! For real.
Cutworms munching away all of your corn harvest? Introduce a designer ‘shroom to your fields and walk away. Go count the money your saving on god awful chemical pesticides. Or go count the bees that are now returning to the world. This is the all too possible world of biopesticides.
I can not do the science enough justice to continue explaining all of the potential benefits that we are beginning to learn, so I strongly urge you to take the time to watch this man describe the magic of his discoveries. This is huge people!
This research and patent has gone suspiciously under the radar since its 2006 introduction. I can’t help but feel its under very nefarious circumstances. Monsanto made almost 16 billion dollars last year. If this information were to get spread, it spells certain doom for the chemical pesticide companies. So I challenge you, my dear reader, to do the good work and spread this word to all that will listen! Sing it from the mountain tops! Help to usher in a new world of ecological balance and harmony. Huzzah!
