There are some pretty ridiculous vlogs of people on YouTube suggesting how to clean up the oil spill better than BP. None of them, however, seem as ridiculous as the actual solution.
Forget synthetic sponges and concrete, the real solution can be found in nature…
Mushrooms are nature’s decomposers, so it only makes sense that their would be one that could break up oil. If the 2007 oil spill in San Francisco was cleaned up with oyster mushrooms, then it only makes sense that the Gulf Oil spill could be cleaned up the same way.
This clip is actually from the documentary “Know Your Mushrooms” which has some very interesting facts about mushrooms and mushroom culture. If you like this excerpt from it, I highly recommend seeing the full film.
