This is Japan! Isn't it a strange phenomenon?
Claims to be "illegal" in the US presidential election.
The logic of Japanese intellectuals who "scream" "Mr. Trump's victory"!
They strongly support former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and are "familiar faces" in the right-wing media.
The Suga Cabinet "pride" on being "the successor to Prime Minister Abe."
2020-12-11: Dear Sir,
The protagonist of this year's "serious crisis" is the "new corona,"
and the "problem of grasshopper invasion" has become "air."
The "grasshopper invasion problem" may be a scarier problem than the "new corona"! !!
"Food for 35,000 people disappears every day"! "Also the cause of conflict"!
"Desert locust" that the United Nations also has a hard time! A FAO representative explained,
"The corona has caused a sharp drop in airmail and delayed the supply of pesticides."
A video of "damage to crops by vermin" by the worst grasshopper in decades in Yunnan, China.
"Worst in decades" grasshopper feeding damage in Yunnan, China! It may also affect "food security".
What I worry most about is the way the Chinese government works.
China will "kill" grasshoppers by spraying large amounts of "insecticide"
from the air with "financial and equipment power"!
However, like Japan, it is a country that does not respect "human rights."
I am worried about the health of the people.
It reminds me of the aerial spraying of US military defoliants during the Vietnam War.
Japanese people with abundant dining tables cannot "imagine damage".
The same is true in all developed countries.
It is also said that "massive outbreak of grasshoppers" is related to "global warming"!
It is not a problem that can be solved by "FAO" alone.
The international community should take the issue of "grasshopper outbreaks" seriously!
Part 1 The Somali government has declared a state of emergency,
saying it poses a serious threat to the food security situation.
For extermination, we spray insecticides from airplanes.
However, the reality is that the breeding speed is too fast to catch up.
In addition, desert locusts can travel 150 kilometers a day,
and even small herds devour food for 35,000 people every day.
The desert locust also eats up the food of livestock and develops into a conflict between humans.
Grasshoppers cast a serious shadow on the region, where 11 million people face a food crisis.
This is a compilation of the "grasshopper forecast" breeding and arrival information released
by the United Nations FAO = Food and Agriculture Organization for each region and country.
In this "forecast," not only Africa but also the Middle East and India are under threat from desert locust.
We have continued to "believe" that hunger is a story in some regions,
such as Africa, and has nothing to do with us.
Most of the affected areas are expected to experience more rainfall than usual.
It is also predicted that the breeding of grasshoppers will accelerate
and the "population" will increase 8,000 times as much as it is now.
In the case of a herd that spreads over one square kilometer,
it is said to "eat up" the crops of "about 35,000 people" per day.
If the damage caused by locust plague in Yunnan Province,
which is a major corn producing area, and neighboring provinces
and autonomous regions becomes severe, corn production is expected to be severely damaged,
and China will face a serious food shortage in the future. I'm worried.
I will write tomorrow, too.
The amendment of the Immigration Control Act in January 2017 states
that "I am not guilty" as the reason for the amendment.
Reason: Amend from "cannot be punished" to "can be punished".
It is a false charge. Thank you to everyone in the international community.
However, the Japanese government has not yet apologized. See below for the indictment. (Japanese)
