The weather, currently.
Drizzly December weather drags on
Drizzly December weather drags on
Rain—for some it evokes a sense of coziness, for others, it represents a cleansing of the spirit. It is also well documented that falling rain sets the stage for flourishing romance. Whatever your symbology, pick it and go with it cause the rain ain’t going anywhere anytime soon in the Portland Metro. Periods of cold rain persist tonight and through the day tomorrow, and each and everyday into next week. Be weary of the potential for slippery roads up in the higher elevations early tomorrow morning as lows drop to near freezing which may create some icy spots. —Lauren Casey

A Texas oil and gas professor on how to win a Just Transition
Currently founder, Eric Holthaus interviewed Arvind Ravikumar — a professor at The Hildebrand Department of Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering at the University of Texas-Austin, for The Phoenix.
They discuss a just transition and what the Biden administration has the power to do with or without Congress. Ravikumar shares his insightful perspective as an environmental justice advocate about what is at stake for communities if meaningful investments in a just transition are not made. Read the interview with Ravikumar for more on what a just transition can look like in the U.S. and globally.

Thanks to @EricHolthaus for giving me space to discuss just transitions in O&G communities. We must move away from simplistic narratives, as if transitions are merely about swapping jobs. We need more nuanced discussions that center these communities.

This will be the wettest November in the history of Canada's west coast — if weather models hold.

Three more atmospheric rivers are arriving to the flood-soaked British Columbia coast over the next few days.
