Gas Compines To Drill For Oil Under Cemeteries

Yes, Really

Sure, they're using horizontal drilling with rigs miles away, and the bodies won't be disturbed, but this is just tacky. But I guess we have to power all the latte liberals SUVs somehow.

Two quick, rough internet searches brings forth this-

Approximately 2.5 million people die each year in America according to the US Census Bureau

and-

Let's pick an average person, about 80 kilos. A hog will yield around 70% of live weight, so that's about 56 kilos of edible meat. (You could probably get a bit more if you wanted to eat all of the organs and such).
Depending on the cut, a kilo of meat runs from about 1500 to 2500 kcal, so we'll call it 2,000 kcal per kilo.
So, your basic human would yield around 110,000 calories. That's enough to keep you going for about two months.
-
Let's round that down to 100,000 calories for ease.
So, very loosely, 2.5 million x 100 000 = two hundred fifty billion, which seems like quite a lot of wasted energy. Screw fracking!

More searching reveals that -
A gallon of gasoline (about 4 liters) contains about 31,000 calories.

250 billion / 31 000 = 8 064 516.13

That's around 8 million gallons of gas.

U.S. Motor Gasoline Consumption is around
8,736,000 barrels/day (377 million gallons/day)
( [www.eia.gov])

WE NEED MORE BODIES!

As long as the residents don't complain, who cares?

The Catholic Cemeteries Association in Pittsburgh also saw benefits to leasing mineral rights under 11 of its cemeteries. The five-year lease, signed in 2008, came to light through news reports in 2010.
That's because god is only concerned about control of the ground up. He doesn't care what happens down below. smiling smiley

Latte liberals? I guess all those people who fly (private and commercial), go on cruises, live more than 5 miles from work, have boats, etc aren't contributing to usage? And we know Republicans of all stripes are such conservationists.

I agree it's tacky. Your partisan plucking was unnecessary.

OMG and teh ebil companees even move cemetaries to make room for profitable ebil corporate stuffs !

Like... oh, roads, airports, schools, libraries, yadda yadda. Been going on for quite a long time.

And then of course there are teh ebil Europeans who move bones out of crypts into ossuaries. They've been doing it for a many, many centuries.

There's nothing really 'sacred' about cemeteries, Poltergeist movies aside. They get moved sometimes.

Ever seen the main cemeteries in NYC ? Woah...

This made me laugh. Not meanly and because I feel I am better than you, but because I imagined your expression as you said it, and it was funny.

And yes, pretty much everywhere else.
I still think in miles though.

This drive me nuts!

This is exactly where a nasty process should be taking place - an area where the residents are already dead. Who in their right mind thinks it's better to do this with homes and schools above?

Just because you live somewhere nothing should happen miles and miles above or below you?
