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.
