Mycelium Running is a manual for the mycological rescue of the planet. That’s right: growing more mushrooms may be the best thing we can do to save the environment, and in this groundbreaking text from mushroom expert Paul Stamets, you’ll find out how. The basic science goes like this: Microscopic cells called “mycelium”--the fruit of which are mushrooms--recycle carbon, nitrogen, and other essential elements as they break down plant and animal debris in the creation of rich new soil. What Stamets has discovered is that we can capitalize on mycelium’s digestive power and target it to decompose toxic wastes and pollutants (mycoremediation), catch and reduce silt from streambeds and pathogens from agricultural watersheds (mycofiltration), control insect populations (mycopesticides), and generally enhance the health of our forests and gardens (mycoforestry and myco-gardening). In this comprehensive guide, you’ll find chapters detailing each of these four exciting branches of what Stamets has coined “mycorestoration,” as well as chapters on the medicinal and nutritional properties of mushrooms, inoculation methods, log and stump culture, and species selection for various environmental purposes. Heavily referenced and beautifully illustrated, this book is destined to be a classic reference for bemushroomed generations to come. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Genre: Political Science

Reichen 20 Stunden Arbeit pro Woche aus? Ist es wirtschaftlicher, zu teilen als zu sparen? Ja, sagt der junge Ökonom Stefan Mekiffer und spricht für eine ganze Generation. Wir müssen weg von der Vorstellung einer Wirtschaft, wie sie uns von Ökonomen eingeimpft wird; weg vom Bild einer Maschine, deren Stellschrauben die Politik dreht, hin zu dem eines organischen Systems. Mekiffer zeigt uns, wie wir in Zukunft leben werden – mit Grundeinkommen, lokalen Währungen und Negativzinsen. Um das zu schaffen, müssen wir jedoch die Rolle des Geldes neu definieren: von einem Instrument, das uns einengt, zu einem Mittel der Freiheit. Ein leidenschaftliches Plädoyer für eine neue Form der Ökonomie.

Now, age fourteen, Matt suddenly finds himself thrust into the position of ruling over his own country, Opium, on the one-time border between the US and Mexico, stretching from the ruins of San Diego to the ruins of Matamoros. But while Opium thrives, the rest of the world has been devastated by ecological disaster… and hidden somewhere in Opium is the cure. And that isn't all that's hidden within the depths of Opium. Matt is haunted by the ubiquitous army of eejits, zombie-like workers harnessed to the old El Patron's sinister system of drug growing... people stripped of the very qualities which once made them human. Matt wants to use his newfound power to help stop the suffering, but he can't even find a way to smuggle his childhood love Maria across the border and into Opium. Instead, his every move hits a roadblock - both from the traitors that surround him and from a voice within himself. For who is Matt really but the clone of an evil, murderous dictator?
