The Libertarian Bob Bar recently put up an article mocking Alkaline Hydrolysis Disposition or Green Cremation. Over the last several weeks much misinformation has been put out in the media on this subject.
The tone of the criticism is that the green cremation or alkaline hydrolysis machines are from the green movement of left wing crazies. All the folks producing the green cremation Machines are entrepreneurs, and not green radicals!
The First Main Objection to this “Libertarian’s Article” Is the headline. “Washing Dead Bodies Down the Drain a New Green Cremation Trend. In Green Cremation, Dead bodies are not washed down the drain, after the process accelerated decomposition fluid is returned to the environment, as fluid fertilizer or to water sewage treatment.
This is what happens in Nature, or natural decomposition. What happens at a traditional funeral “EMBALMING ” is much worse Blood and Formaldehyde go right down the drain. Check Out: If Green Cremation is Ugly, Embalming is Uglier.
Barr does not mention that cremation is destructive to the Environment, but instead he marches into the soylent green uninformed response to Alkaline Hydrolysis.
Soylent Green” was a 1973 science fiction film that starred Charlton Heston. In the movie, a primary foodstuff for an overpopulated and over-polluted world is something called “soylent green,” which is a processed, wafer-like biscuit. Toward the end of the movie, which depicts a dystopian police state, Heston discovers that the primary ingredient in soylent green is processed human corpses. While the process of dissolving and then reconstituting human bodies into edible products does not yet appear to be on the horizon in the real world, the process of dissolving human bodies into liquids and disposing of them at water treatment plants, is.
Resomation is only one term from one company for Green Cremation Barr insists on attacking it in his article.
The other terms are cycledlife, water resolution, bio cremation, water disposition, water reduction, natural cremation are not even considered in
