Most paper comes from trees that are grown in farms by the paper industry to the purpose of making paper, no virgin forest is damaged, and these are the forests people are concerned about. The major causes of deforestation are the expansion of the agricultural frontier, mining, growth of livestock among others, paper consumption have very little to do with this issue, specially in the digital era we live.

regardless, she is clearly supporting save the trees and by definition "save the trees" would mean every tree including the farmed ones.

I'm all for stopping animal abuse and poaching, but that doesn't mean I think farmers shouldn't slaughter animals.

Stop thumbnail abuse.

Thumbnail only matters if it's too small or annoying to see or read.

True, but also those farms consists only one type of tree in a large area with determined distances. That damages the ecology in that area. These problems are hard to fix, that's why we are constantly trying to improve it.

It's hard to take Prez-chan serious. I'm imagining her making these lewd "Wood" innuendos in every line of informative information you spew. You should move to using homer.

Tsuda's tree is standing strong and true unabated by the paper industry.

He's right, you know.
Most endangered trees get cut for fancy furniture and housing, while paper is very cheap to produce and comes in pretty much unlimited quantities because of bamboo (that stuff grows fast as hell).

"MOST" and even so, consider that the thousands of paper could have been for other use also, other than the using it to cry out "Save trees." More effective ways to help would just be saving paper (recycled paper, other paper alternatives)

The idea is that by bringing conscientiousness over the subject people will start avoiding the behavior that actually contribute to the deforestation, making the use of some paper meaningless next to changes it brings. Not saying it is the best method to do this, but it's also far away from being the pure idiocy the pic make it sound like.

Yeah, but there's always another way to do things, this is just easier but also a little contradictory, not to the extent of the comic makes it of course.
