    This reef initiative keeps coming up on news reports, so evidently it resonates with someone at least.

    Of course the stimulus behind this has everything to do with environmentalism and a specialized subculture than with humanity in general. The founder is a diver who wanted to save the reefs. So he figured out this clever idea to help that cause. That is what it is about.

    Beyond a few passionate divers whose most natural “happy hunting ground” would be a coral reef, I can’t see what the benefits are to anyone else. These grave sites will be truly unvisitable and will be forgotten more effectively than even an unmarked green burial!

    Sorry, let’s be honest – this is environmentalism, not humanism. Both are important, but we should be clear about what is what – then we do cleaner work either way.
