There are 9 comments on Why Fungi Rule the World

  1. How thrilling to read about Jennifer Talbot’s work with mycorrhizal fungi in “Why Fungi Rule the World” as we are confronted with climate change.

  2. Ms. Talbot is obviously very invested in her research and in an article this beautifully written this becomes very clear. Keep up the good work and hopefully we will hear more about your research in the future.

  3. Another useless, irrelevant study… because universities are still being fed millions of dollars in research funding for any studies connected to “climate science.” This is truly the most mind-numbing subject that has ever been studied in the history of scientific research. It’s about as useful as studying how we might alter cloud cover in order to regulate the amount of direct sunlight we receive each day. Although we have no way of knowing exactly how much direct sunlight everything needs, we decide that the current levels just aren’t safe, so we set out to see how we can alter cloud cover in order to control our exposure to sunlight. When your scientific research is driven by money, politics and determinism, it no longer qualifies as scientific.
