    Well, if it was trying to stop global warming, then they should realise that decomposing bodies do release greenhouse gasses.

    Oh noes! Half-burned corpses! More raw materials for Necromancers to exploit. :scared:

    Actually, the environmentally friendly thing to do would be to eat the corpses... Raw, preferrably.

    This is a one-time deal. Once decomposed, the bodies will stop releasing gases. But those dead people will never drive cars or burn leaves in their back yard or use a weed whacker or do any other planet-destroying evil deeds.

    So we win in the long term. :)

    Yeah, I know--minus ten points for bad taste.

    Edit: I take back that last line--lots of people in here are saying things in bad taste. :D

    Anyway, the workers should know that plastic bags are made from oil.
