As an ageless and eternal lich I am perhaps more invested in the future of this planet than most. After all, where am I going to get thralls and fodder from if the earth can no longer support life? So I think it's in my own best interests to reduce the carbon footprint of my necromancy and make myself more environmentally sustainable. The question is, how do I go about doing this?

necromanswers:

It’s good to see liches taking an interest in the environment; too many modern necromancers take the attitude that there’s plenty of dead material to last us almost indefinitely even if all life on earth dies out. The reality of the situation is that, in a dark future in which all life has been extinguished, the Earth will doubtless be plagued by the undead legions of powerful necromancers as they vie for ultimate dominion over a planet of the dead.

The supply is not inexhaustible. 

Of course, the connection between necromancy and the environment has been thoroughly explored by more capable necromancers than myself. Famed dark wizard and head of the college of necromancy, Albus Dumblegore has often pointed out that necromancy has a net-positive effect on the environment.

This is the basis of his bestselling grimoire (and box office smash hit) A Convenient Truth; by raising the bodies of the dead and preserving them through painstaking reanimation, you prevent all of that nasty carbon from seeping back out into the environment. Think of all the nasty greenhouse gases trapped in the average horde of zombies! The very act of necromancy itself acts to preserve the environment in its current state, teeming with life that you will later have the opportunity to raise from the dead, continuing the all-important cycle.

More than that, there are subtle clues hidden in Dumblegore’s work, indicating that you might use the very agents of climate change in your necromancy. Bend the smog to your will, use it in your most powerful spellcrafting, gaze into the vortex and draw from it the powers you require.

Your necromancy is already more than environmentally sustainable, you’re actively encouraging a better earth for us all. Keep up the good work.

That said, should the planet die, there’s no need to worry… I happen to know just the right cabal of black sorcerers to bring it back.
