Washington Becomes First State To Legalize Human Composting

Governor Jay Inslee signed legislation Tuesday making Washington the first state to approve composting as an alternative to burying or cremating human remains. The Associated Press reports: It allows licensed facilities to offer "natural organic reduction," which turns a body, mixed with substances such as wood chips and straw, into about two wheelbarrows` worth of soil in a span of several weeks. Loved ones are allowed to keep the soil to spread, just as they might spread the ashes of someone who has been cremated -- or even use it to plant vegetables or a tree. Supporters say the method is an environmentally friendly alternative to cremation, which releases carbon dioxide and particulates into the air, and conventional burial, in which people are drained of their blood, pumped full of formaldehyde and other chemicals that can pollute groundwater, and placed in a nearly indestructible coffin, taking up land. State law previously dictated that remains be disposed of by burial or cremation. The law, which takes effect in May 2020, added composting as well as alkaline hydrolysis, a process already legal in 19 other states. The latter uses heat, pressure, water and chemicals like lye to reduce remains. Read more of this story at Slashdot.

Environmental groups call for statewide oil, gas moratorium

DENVER — Dozens of people packed the Colorado Oil and Gas Commission hearing room Tuesday for the first meeting of the newly reconstituted regulatory body, and many of those attendees called for a statewide moratorium on new oil and gas drilling. The COGCC, the makeup and mission of which was changed after the recent passage of oil and gas reform measure Senate Bill 181, is developing new rulemaking procedures for drilling permits as mandated by SB-181. Activists and environmental groups are calling for new drilling and approval of the state’s 6,000 pending drilling applications to be halted as the board works through that process, which is expected to be complete by next summer. That request, however, seems unlikely to be granted. Anticipating the message from many speakers present at Tuesday’s COGCC hearing in Denver, newly appointed COGCC director Jeff Robbins addressed the crowd in advance of the roughly two-hour-long public comment session. While Robbins welcomed public comment on any topic, his message was clear: Now is not the time to implement a statewide moratorium. “Numerous members of the public have asked me and asked the commission to immediately ban or put into place a moratorium on any and all new permits until all of the rules have been adopted,” Robbins said. “That, I believe, is contrary to the intent of Senate Bill 181.” That measure, which instituted a host of sweeping reforms for the industry, including shifting the COGCC’s mission away from fostering oil and gas production and toward regulating that production, “specifically stated that we should create objective criteria” to use as a guideline for evaluating permits during the rulemaking period, he said. “That’s what I plan on doing, and that’s what [Gov. Jared Polis’] administration has suggested that we need to do,” Robbins said. Robbins’ pre-hearing message to the meeting’s attendees did little to stifle pleas for a moratorium. “Now that SB-181 has been signed into law, we call on you to carefully consider whether you are truly fulfilling your new mission or simply continuing to make decisions based on antiquated premises that are damaging Colorado’s health, safety and quality of life,” Micah Parkin, executive director of climate change and environmental protection advocacy group 350 Colorado, told the commissioners. “Our children and future generations are counting on us to make the right decisions, and the COGCC must include migiting climate impacts part of its mission,” she said. “If it is even remotely possible that the current rules and regulations for oil and gas permitting are insufficient to protect public health, safety and welfare, then an immediate pause on permitting while more protective rules and regulations are developed is the only just and reasonable course of action.” A moratorium during the rulemaking process “allows time for a thoughtful, thorough process that enables public participation,” Parkin said. The Colorado Sierra Club expects the new commissioners “will usher in a new era in which the COGCC embraces and upholds SB-181, which was enacted because Coloradans want reform of oil and gas […] The post Environmental groups call for statewide oil, gas moratorium appeared first on BizWest .
