The Oil Spill – Still Not As Bad as Roane County Tennessee in 2008

The Oil Spill is making me very sad.  A previous post I did talks about the biggest toxic spill disaster in American history. December 2008 Roane County Tennessee but hardly anyone made mention of it. The post references the Rollingstone article about the toxic coal sludge.  Check it out. https://cannabischronicles.wordpress.com/2010/04/11/coal-sludge-causes-autism/ The sick part is that it’s the same company that cause the spill as head the mining disaster that killed 26 people- Don Blankenship, Massey Energy.

The fact that it’s spring and all the wildlife will be having offspring is killing me because I can’t do anything about it.  The Gulf already suffered huge losses this year because of the cold weather.  Fishing has been restricted in many areas of Florida because the so many fish a marine life died over the winter.  This would be horrible if this get’s so bad that the Gulf is polluted for years and years and the beautiful pristine beaches that surround the Gulf will be destroyed.

Mushrooms – the Next Best Building Material

Mushrooms Need More Attention

Supposedly mycelium, the fibrous material of mushroom roots can produce bricks as strong as concrete and as insulating as fiberglass.
Seems like a no brainer why aren’t we building with this?

Is this the largest organism in the world? This 2,400-acre (9.7 km2) site in eastern Oregon had a contiguous growth of mycelium before logging roads cut through it. Estimated at 1,665 football fields in size and 2,200 years old, this one fungus has killed the forest above it several times over, and in so doing has built deeper soil layers that allow the growth of ever-larger stands of trees. Mushroom-forming forest fungi are unique in that their mycelial mats can achieve such massive proportions.
