A slightly morbid idea perhaps . . .

How many people die every day? How many are cremated using energy?

How much energy would we be able to produce from a power station using dead people as fuel? There is a fairly unlimited supply at the moment . . .

OK, so it's "Soylent Green" for energy. But we are all 'biomass' at the end of the day! Shocked

Woodland burials seem like the obvious way forward to me.

Good one . . . probably a more tasteful idea!

That is how I want to be buried.

When I was at school - some 20 years ago now, I remember reading about a then new build hospital in Germany somewhere that used power created by the crematorium next door. Seemed obvious to me then that it was a good idea.

I think I would go for a woodland as well, sounds nice.
