Kathy Hochul just channeled Haley Joel Osment with this unnerving decision

Democrat New York Governor Kathy Hochul sees dead people.

She doesn’t see them walking around as child actor Haley Joel Osment’s character famously did back in the 1999 film The Sixth Sense.

But Kathy Hochul just channeled Haley Joel Osment with this unnerving decision.

She’s not acknowledged all deceased Empire State nursing home residents that Democrats were responsible for when they locked COVID infected patients in with seniors in the early days of the pandemic.

But Kathy Hochul sees dead people.

Instead she sees them helping fight the supposed global warming that leftists now call “climate change.”

Some New Yorkers are now literally dying to combat climate change

Left-wing climate activists are so gung-ho over their ideas they treat public policy on the issue as a matter of life and death.

But the latest actions, already initiated in states along the left coast, have left some seething.

Last weekend, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) signed legislation legalizing natural organic reduction, better known as “human composting.”

The bill, co-sponsored by New York Assembly Member Amy Paulin (D-Westchester) and state Sen. Leroy Comrie (D-Queens) legalizes human composting as part of the state’s plan to eliminate carbon emissions by 2050.

According to the Daily Mail, “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. One month later, the remains will fully decompose and be turned into soil.”

It all started on the left coast . . . because of course it did.

Washington was the first state to legalize human composting in 2019.

Colorado and Oregon jumped on the bandwagon in 2021 with Vermont and California joining the fray last year.

Based in the first state allowing this procedure to occur with final remains, “green” funeral services company Return Home, says it is now getting “tons of inquiries” from New Yorkers.

The company offers “human composting as a death care option.”

People are dying . . . but not to see this trend catch on

Return Home CEO Micah Truman said, “Return Home is incredibly excited about New York’s recent human composting legalization. This is a huge step for accessible green death care nationwide.”

But not everyone is dying to see this become a nationwide trend.

Dennis Poust is the executive director of the New York State Catholic Conference, representing Cardinal Timothy Dolan and the state’s Catholic bishops in Albany and says, “Composting and fertilizing may be appropriate for vegetable clippings or eggshells, but not for our mortal remains.”

Indeed, the Catholic Church was none-too-happy when the idea was being debated in California.

Kathleen Domingo, executive director of the California Catholic Conference, says “Natural Organic Reduction uses essentially the same process as a home gardening composting system. 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 bigger story here is one of messed-up priorities.

Just as in California, the Empire State is hemorrhaging good-paying jobs precisely because it is kowtowing to the lunatic green lobby and this is just one more example of it.

Rather than focusing on combating crime and fostering a more business-friendly climate, it was human composting that got the attention of New York’s leftist governor and Democrat-controlled legislature.

This is all happening as Hochul is literally telling citizens to leave the state.

In the end, New York, just like California, has become an unserious state governed by unserious people and it’s hard to see that changing soon.
