Isn't it that what you don't know should scare you most? I don't want to inhale human remains!

I wouldn't be super pumped to live next to one, but it probably wouldn't bother me a ton either, unless the smoke was blocking out the sun or really stunk or something.

As far as environmental impact & morbidity go, you can't really have your cake and eat it too. If you're mindful of one of those factors, you're going to have to slacken up on the other; there are only so many things you can do with a dead body. If I recall correctly, burning a body is easier on the environment than burying it, because embalming fluids are pretty awful (and I imagine even the effect of digging a big hole in the earth and sticking a box made of finished wood into it is also not the greatest thing in the long run). On the other hand, you could just dump the body somewhere and let nature take its course, which is very environmentally friendly...but also way grosser than a crematorium or cemetery next door.

ETA: Oh yeah, also...

What about farts—you ever get blasted right up close? That might have been shit going up your nose.

I don't have any problem with you living next to a crematorium.

If you already live in a neighborhood that is zoned to allow for such things, I don't see the problem.

If I lived in a residential neighborhood and someone wanted to change the zoning code to allow for it I'd have a problem just because of what it would do for local property values.

You are breathing in carbon, if anything. It's no different than breathing in the carbon from every house on your block when they have their heat on.

That is exactly why I am opposing.

It wouldn't bother me but I wouldn't go to a open house BBQ.

I worked right across the street from one for 5 years in downtown Arlington. Honestly...it was fine. I'm not sure how they do it, but there were not billows of smoke coming out (you could see the heat exhaust though) when they fired it up, nor was there a sign saying "get your remains burned here" or anything like that. It was quite respectful looking and literally also across the street from the public library...never had a problem with them either.

That said, I support you. I would oppose this and almost anything built in my neighborhood.

Yes, it doesn't matter what your 'reasons' are, no one can tell you which are valid or not. If it smells bad, creeps you out or what ever, you have the right to 'not like it'.

I wouldn't want to smell it for sure, I wouldn't want to see bodies being delivered either. The whole thing would creep me out and that's that. If someone thinks that's not a good reason, too bad!
