How does using the heat from a burning corpse to produce electricity equal to "turning a corpse into electricity"?

It seems you didn't read my second link. That may have helped you realise that this discussion is nothing to do with semantics of English and that I'd probably join a thread on that if it were interesting to me.

Technically, they are not turning burning bodies into electricity.  They are reclaiming some of the energy they used to turn the corps into ash.  Burning a corps is not like burning coal.  It is more like burning a steak on your stove top.

It could be worse. In Vienna a crematorium uses the power to heat their offices.

Another has approval to use the power to heat the local pool.

I can just see it. Mmmm, getting cold in here. Chuck another corpse on the fire.
