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.

California Will Allow Human Composting After Death to Combat Climate Change

California Will Allow Human Composting After Death to Combat Climate Change

The far-left state of California further embraced neo-paganism this week when Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill into law allowing the practice of composting dead human beings to better combat climate change.

Citing the high CO2 emissions associated with cremation, the bill will give people the option to give their dead remains over to a process known as natural organic reduction (NOR) should they not want to be buried or cremated.

“The process involves placing the body inside a long, reusable steel container along with wood chips and flowers to aerate it – allowing microbes and bacteria to break down the remains,” according to the Daily Mail. “One month later, the remains will fully decompose and be turned into soil.”

The act of cremation reportedly accounts for 360,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year.

California Democrat Assemblymember Cristina Garcia, who authored the bill, praised NOR as a “more environmentally friendly” practice that will give people more options for their desired burial. She wrote:

With climate change and sea-level rise as very real threats to our environment, this is an alternative method of final disposition that won’t contribute emissions into our atmosphere. I look forward to continuing my legacy to fight for clean air by using my reduced remains to plant a tree.

The bill will make it illegal to combine human remains without permission or unless the two are related. It will also be illegal to sell the soil or use it for agricultural purposes.

The Catholic Church strongly opposes the practice of NOR, charging it was meant for livestock.

“NOR uses essentially the same process as a home gardening composting system,” Kathleen Domingo, executive director of the California Catholic Conference, told SFGATE. She added:

These methods of disposal were used to lessen the possibility of disease being transmitted by the dead carcass. Using these same methods for the ‘transformation’ of human remains can create an unfortunate spiritual, emotional and psychological distancing from the deceased.

The law will not take effect until 2027 and follows the states of Washington, Colorado, and Oregon.
