The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

The Religion of Soylent Green

I rarely post two environmental-idiot articles in one day, but this one is especially deserving of scorn:

Heat created by burning the dead at crematoria could be used to keep mourners warm under plans to make funerals more environmentally-friendly.

Instead of letting the gases emitted by cremation escape into the atmosphere, councils want to use them to heat radiators or even generate electricity.

They admit some might find the idea of being kept warm by the remains of their loved-ones macabre.

But there are thought to be no religious objections, and ever-tighter controls on pollution mean such systems could become commonplace.


Spoiler Alert: It's people!

Seriously, the environmentalist movement is looking more and more like a cult with each passing day. The sooner it's condemned to the droll pits of fad-dom, the better.

YOU THINK?!?!!?

How gawd awful can you get? This is just plain nuts. While I like the idea of recapturing waste heat to warm buildings and such... but....

"Dearly beloved. We are hear today to wish Gary our fondest fair-wells. He departs us today to be with his family in heaven. But know this. As he had warmed our heart while alive, he now warms your butts today due to his heat of his cremation being used to heat this room. All say Thank You to let Gary know how thankful you are he died so that you may be warm."
