PORTLAND, Oregon - On Friday, June 19, a group of demonstrators gathered in Chapman Square on the west side of the Justice Center. At 9:40 p.m., the group began to march toward Revolution Hall. Halfway across the Morrison Bridge, a group of approximately 75 protesters decided to return to the Justice Center. The group gathered on the west side of the Justice Center, blocking traffic on SW 3rd Avenue. Protesters began throwing projectiles at the building.

Global warming or climate change is real. It is mostly caused by human beings. And it’s getting much worse. The problem is so severe that we can never return. The future is dim and dark and uncertain. And it is the saddest thing I can imagine because I have a daughter named Julia who will live in the future and so will her children. Her future will include hotter temperatures, wildfires, floods, pandemics, and world-wide pollution. That’s the new reality. Pandemics and much warmer weather is our future. There’s no getting around this inevitable fact. All we can do is hope that a huge comet avoids crashing into the earth destroying all humankind and most of the life on planet earth as what happened 65 million years ago during one of the five mass extinctions. The first extinction wiped out most life on earth 250 million years ago. That extinction was caused by massive world-wide volcanic eruptions and other factors. Humans did not cause that problem. We did not exist then. But in retrospect, those five extinctions were good for humans because of the massive changes to the remaining life, humans were eventually able to take a foothold and survive to present day. But a similar ...
