Meanwhile in the Democrat hellhole of California…
Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom signed a bill this week legalizing human composting.
Starting in 2027, human composting will be available as a new burial method in California.
The bill was introduced by Democrat assemblywoman Cristina Garcia (D-Bell Gardens).
Garcia actually argued that cremation is bad for the environment because there is a lot of carbon emissions.
“When we have a coffin and we put that into the ground, there’s a lot of chemicals that get leaked into the ground and often times it ends up in our water,” Cristina Garcia told KABC. “When we do cremation there’s a lot of carbon emissions.”
The California Catholic Conference objected and said human composting creates an “unfortunate spiritual, emotional, and psychological distancing from the deceased.” Kathleen Domingo, executive director of the California Catholic Conference said, adding, the process “reduces the human body to simply a disposable commodity.”
ABC 7 reported:
Starting in 2027, a different burial method will be available for Californians after Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill that allows human composting.
AB 351, introduced by Assemblymember Cristina Garcia (D-Bell Gardens), allows for the method in which human remains naturally decompose over a 30-to-45-day period and are turned into a soil. That human-composted soil can then be returned to the deceased’s family or donated to conservation land.
Supporters say it’s an environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional end-of-life options.
California will join four other states in the country – Washington, Colorado, Oregon and Vermont – in allowing human composting.
Micah Truman, CEO of Return Home in Washington, said human composting is an eco-friendly option.
“One cremation takes about 30 gallons of fuel to complete and blows 530 pounds of CO2 into the atmosphere,” Truman said.
He said human remains are placed in a vessel where the body is transformed into soil in 60 days.
“When it’s done we have soil that we give back to the family. The family can put it anywhere they want. The rules are identical to that of cremated remains,” Truman said.
