The Tomato Seeds of Wrath: “A climate-change activist prepares for the worst”

Tidwell tells us that he has long cared for the environment, that he did his part.
But caring wasn't enough, it was an emotion disproportionate to his soul-searing commitment. One can imagine Tidwell asking himself, "What other emotional states besides caring are available to me, such that I can show my dedication to the environment? Satisfaction? Clearly not. Worry? Too tepid. Concern? Insufficient. How about paranoia?" "That's it!" he must have shouted to himself. For what other emotion best explains his buying "a new set of deadbolt locks on all my doors," a (presumably gas powered) generator, and a (yes) "starter kit to raise tomatoes and lettuce behind barred basement windows."

Your Say

Indoor hydroponics? He's probably going to raise a slightly more profitable crop than tomatoes down there. Bastard probably won't share any with the neighbors either.

Only thing he needs to invest in is bricks and mortar, so to wall himself in a la 'The Cask of Amontillado'.
