Crematorium Will Be Used To Heat Swimming Pool In UK

Posted by on February 24, 2012

In what could be considered a macabre development, the Redditch Borough Council in England has decided to warm a local swimming pool with heat generated from burning bodies. The plan will go into effect sometime this spring.

In the future, the British government may even implement the idea throughout the country.

Some think this is a bit strange (for example, a British labor union has said the idea is “sick and an insult to local residents”). However, the heat created in a crematorium exists whether it’s used or not, and this is a somewhat novel idea in a world desperately seeking alternative energy sources.

What do you think? Good idea?

    I think using the heat generated in crematorium is great idea, because if  the heat exists why should’t people us it properly.
