Paul Stamets, a mushroom researcher, proposes that 65 million years ago when an asteroid caused the extinction event the mushrooms took over earth, as they dont need light to grow. Mushrooms live on microwave radiation where plants live on (sun)light radiation. Since then plants have started to grow again in the soil the mushrooms produced. Now plants have again gained upper hand, but maybe it is time for the mushrooms to take over again?

In an experiment Stamets did he saturated piles with petroleum waste, and attempted cleanup via different methods. All other methods failed, but the oyster mushroom pile was transformed into a green oasis full of life, including very big and healthy oyster mushrooms.

Is this GOM oil spill another extinction event, and the mushrooms will once again start taking over, feeding on the oil that has come to dominate the oceans and shorelines?

The amount over how much of this was intentionally planned, and how much is just coincidence is up to guess


edit:
video: Stamets appearing on TED:


The oil might be a birthing event, or the "2012 event" itself. The planet is changing, not dying. Oil is toxic for us, but it is food for the mushrooms.

Only the mushrooms would benefit from this outcome.
So if there was any intentional planning- the mushrooms themselves must have been the culprits.

Anyone else remember this?:

Matango (マタンゴ?), also known as Matango, Fungus of Terror and Attack of the Mushroom People, is a 1963 Japanese tokusatsu movie. It was directed by Ishirō Honda, written by Takeshi Kimura based on the story "The Voice in the Night" by William Hope Hodgson (an adaptation credit is given to Masami Fukushima and Shinichi Hoshi, but Kimura threw out most of their contributions), and had special effects by Eiji Tsuburaya.

The movie has developed something of a cult audience over the years; partly due to its bleakness and unusual themes, particularly when compared to other Japanese films of the same period.
