Video: Green crematorium

June 16, 2009

Following up on a bizarre Daily Telegraph article about a British crematorium that would only burn corpses wearing eco-friendly clothes, I found this great video indicating that green cremation is a multicultural phenomenon:

    I’m not sure if this guy wants to use less wood to reduce his CO2 emissions or to save the trees.

    If he’s doing it to reduce CO2 emissions, he’s wasting his time. Wood burning doesn’t produce any more CO2 than letting it rot. Might as well burn it if you have it.

    If he’s wanting to save the trees, it’s kind-of senseless. It reminds me of the war on the logging industries. The logging industry replants trees that it cuts down. Going after them accomplishes nothing except make the envirowackos “feel good”. Environmentalism is more of the problem. They are preventing the industrialization of poor countries that cannot afford to go “green”. Many jobs are not there as a result, and people are cutting down the rain forests so they can use the land to grow crops to survive. That is where we’re losing ground on the tree agenda. The environmentalists are causing the opposite of what they think they’re preventing. Very short sighted and narrow minded on their part, or just plain narcissism and elitism. They need to spend a little more time on researching the effects of their agenda rather than spending so much time pushing propaganda that’s false.

    So, burying them would be the greenest of all! Hmmm…why didn’t we think of that! Oh, wait a minute we do that already.
    At this point I’m thinking “The End Of Days” is quite near.

    Needless to say, I doubt that not committing suicide is evidence of hypocrisy among those who wish to reduce CO2 emissions, just as it is not evidence of hypocrisy among those who wish to reduce healthcare costs or income taxes. No one advocates death as a reasonable solution to any problem.

    Also, what exactly is wrong with a crematorium that does this, even if it is pointless? If people want to cremate that way, it’s not exactly taking food off the plate of a starving child.

    Hmmm…. Green cremation? This guy is spending all of this time trying to figure out how to use less wood. I have a better idea… use no wood at all… just put the body in and let the blowflies and maggots do the job.

    This pro-bug approach would be the ultimate in Green.

    It might take a while for the process to complete but, hey, after you’re dead the first million years goes by pretty fast.

    Well hell. Why don’t the eco-wackos dress up in “green” clothing, go to this “facility” and commit suicide in the name of saving “mother earth”, and then be cremated? After all, they are killing hundreds of thousands of black Africans every year, again, to save “mother earth”. It would seem they would want to make the same sacrifice themselves. Otherwise, they would be hypocrites, would they not? I guess this old bear just does not understand. SIGH . . . . . . . .
