Tracy Simon asks how to respond to the remark below:

The writer appears to be worrying about the cost of storing people and the 
emissions and wastes associated with power usage. This is just a variation of 
the theme of "We shouldn't waste money on dead people that could be used to 
feed starving children,"  or "We shouldn't spend on luxuries when so many 
don't have necessities," or "We shouldn't indulge ourselves at the expense of 
the environment," etc. The answers are obvious, or ought to be.
