"Energy Consumption" or "Can We Recapture The Extra Heat From My Funeral Pyre?"

As a self-declared "Energy Star" person, driving a Toyata Prius currently getting 44 mpg, as well as various other green lifestyle choices, I found myself in a very interesting discussion earlier today as I insulted my co-workers choice of 15 mpg Giant Barns On Wheels.  The suggestion was made that since I had such guilt over causing damage to the environment through my personal use of dead dinosaurs for personal transport that I should perhaps result to self-immolation as a way to atone for my pain.

This left me wondering, how could I recapture and reuse the energy from my funeral pyre for use by my decendants?
