The odd fellow is from a garden in the suburbs of Tokyo, Japan, according to the diary.
The phenomenon is confirmed by another Japanese source of information.
The incompetence of local and national government, concerning environmental issues, brings suffering to billions around the planet:
The closure of Mexico's biggest garbage dump has highlighted the absence of a comprehensive policy for urban waste collection, disposal and processing, a failure that has serious consequences for health and the environment.(Garbage, Garbage, Garbage). Incompetent legislation and regulation of herbicides is bringing on extinctions, mutations, and danger to Americans via use of the most "popular solutions", which are human cell damaging chemical poisons:
The leftwing government of the Mexican capital decided in December to close Bordo Poniente, the biggest refuse dump, located in the east of the city, without coming up with an alternative solution. Now municipalities adjacent to Mexico City are refusing to accept its waste.
Used in yards, farms and parks throughout the world, Roundup has long been a top-selling weed killer. But now researchers have found that one of Roundup’s inert ingredients can kill human cells, particularly embryonic, placental and umbilical cord cells.(Scientific American, Herbicide Roundup). Not that Roundup leaves anything out of its deadly gun sights:
The new findings intensify a debate about so-called “inerts” — the solvents, preservatives, surfactants and other substances that manufacturers add to pesticides. Nearly 4,000 inert ingredients are approved for use by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Glyphosate, Roundup’s active ingredient, is the most widely used herbicide in the United States.
The global decline in amphibian diversity has become an international environmental problem with a multitude of possible causes. There is evidence that pesticides may play a role, yet few pesticides have been tested on amphibians. For example, Roundup is a globally common herbicide that is conventionally thought to be nonlethal to amphibians. However, Roundup has been tested on few amphibian species, with existing tests conducted mostly under laboratory conditions and on larval amphibians. Recent laboratory studies have indicated that Roundup may be highly lethal to North American tadpoles, but we need to determine whether this effect occurs under more natural conditions and in post-metamorphic amphibians. I assembled communities of three species of North American tadpoles in outdoor pond mesocosms that contained different types of soil (which can absorb the pesticide) and applied Roundup as a direct overspray. After three weeks, Roundup killed 96–100% of larval amphibians (regardless of soil presence). I then exposed three species of juvenile (post-metamorphic) anurans to a direct overspray of Roundup in laboratory containers. After one day, Roundup killed 68–86% of juvenile amphibians. These results suggest that Roundup, a compound designed to kill plants, can cause extremely high rates of mortality to amphibians that could lead to population declines.(ESA - Journal). As if the extinction of amphibians was not enough, see also Roundup - Pitts, Nature's Country Store, Mother Jones, and Huffington Post articles about this calamitous failure of government.
The word ecocide is really just another word for mass murder brought about by criminal insanity of government puppets controlled by mad, careless, unethical, inhumane, rogue businesses.
The public incessantly picks up the tab for the ongoing plunder of the earth, for the nightmare of the dark lords of "business."
It is time to round them up.
