To all the dedicated voters out there who have kept my comics high in the ranks, thank you so much!

Lily: If you want to be a TRENDY environmentalist, you just plant more trees.
Simon: Yeah, and a lot of tree-planting projects DO improve the environment. But let's say you buy a random tree from a store. That tree was likely mass-produced from a limited genetic pool and transported across the country in the back of a truck. Right here we have trees growing on their own, and they're genetically diverse and adapted to their location. These trees are more ecologically beneficial than the ones you can buy. And they come up in everyone's yards around here. All we have to do to "PLANT" them is NOT MOW THEM DOWN.
