Join the Eph & Jeff show for an interview with Cliff Bradley, an expert in biological remediation – using fungi in restoring the earth. This episode looks in depth at petroleum and oil spills across the earth, and just how staggering it is.
The topics range from local, USA issues with oil and natural gas, to places like the Niger Delta where the amount of oil spilled is shocking, and to places like Ecuador, where the oil was buried, and the people now suffer the consequences.
We look briefly at the use of fungi for pest control, and some of the science of how it works. We also consider different energy options to replace oil and gas.
Many of the topics discussed would benefit from images, so the images are below. We also want to recommend looking at AmazonWatch.org for more information about the Ecuadorian oil waste, and what can be done about it.
