“I think that the memoirs of my grandfather, Mircea Mitroi (b. 29 December 1916 – d. 3 January 2012), are interesting in a way that would span outside the coutry for at least four reasons:

  • if tells the story of a War veteran who fough againt Nazi Germany (1944-45) in the Tatra mountains and saved a shoe factory from being ransacked by his own battalion;

Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore testifies to Congress about global warming

WINTERY KNIGHT

Investors Business Daily has a story to go with the 5-minute testimony.

Excerpt:

A Greenpeace co-founder testified in Congress on Tuesday about global warming. What he said is hardly what anyone would expect.

Patrick Moore came off as a raving denier.

“There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earth’s atmosphere over the past 100 years,” said Moore, who was testifying before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee’s Subcommittee on Oversight.

“If there were such a proof, it would be written down for all to see. No actual proof, as it is understood in science, exists.”

15. In the chains of communism

Memories of Cardboard

Around year 1947, Mircea did the great mistake of speaking in public against communism. He thought, as many Romanians did that time, that the American1 troops will liberate the eastern European states under Soviet occupation (a thing that never happened).
