Green alternative to cremation

One third of all Americans are cremated after they die. According to the attached Reuter’s article on an alternative method, a standard cremation generates a whopping 880 pounds of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide and uses enough energy to drive a car 500 miles. Perhaps the major players in Copenhagen will work something out so we can sell our carbon units into the cap-and-trade pool when opting for the alternative cremation method.

Personally, I want to be buried in the garden. "Interesting tasting tomatoes. Did you change brands of fertilizer this year?"

Heh. Dad would have loved the thought of being buried in his garden at the house; it was his favorite place during his final years. Somehow I don't think he approves of the cemetery... no grass grows over his site.
