The weather, currently.
A few showers to kick off the work week but highs remain mild over the next several days
A few showers to kick off the work week but highs remain mild over the next several days
We may finally be convinced that spring is actually upon us after a day so calm and mild, and for tomorrow, high temperatures will stay on the preferable side of 60°. Some intermittent showers slide back into the forecast, mainly during the morning hours, however, if you leave home without the umbrella, you likely won’t be any worse for the wear. By the afternoon, we could see some blue and cheery conditions overtaking our Portland skies. Tuesday’s highs hold steady in the low 60s but on Wednesday will take a dive back into the 50s with an increased chance of rain shower activity. — Lauren Casey

Demonstrators marched on 500 cities around the world on March 25 in the Global Climate Strike, organized by Fridays For the Future— a movement founded by Greta Thunberg. 
In 2018, the IPCC released a historic report, warning that the world had roughly twelve years left to prevent the worst effects of global warming. We’re down to eight years now. 
World leaders have largely spent the last four years wasting time and carbon emissions are back on the rise after a sharp drop early in the pandemic. What has emerged since that fateful IPCC report is an unprecedented youth movement, demanding change. 
This year’s theme was People Over Profit. “In 10 years these kids will be able to run for office,” Sofia Palau, a Bay Area organizer told ABC 7. “If we can’t make change here on the streets we will make change in congress in the future.” —Rebecca McCarthy
Fridays For Future MAPA
Ugandan Activists took to the street demanding #PeopleNotProfit and #StopEACOP, the East African Crude Oil pipeline (EACOP) proposed 1,445-kilometer heated pipeline that will transport oil from Hoima, Uganda to the port of Tanga in Tanzania.
