instruction. laura anthony has that part of the story from the east bay. >> this is an important time for our students. they deserve and need in person instruction. >> state superintendent tony thurman used a visit to an oakland school is an opportunity to reinforce the importance of a return to in person classes amid a resurgent pandemic. >> even though there are many challenges facing us with the variant, this school, like many, has taken into account the needs of our students and put all safety measures and place to ensure our students can continue to learn. >> missiles required masking, testing will be available along with support services to deal with the trauma and learning loss many children experienced during remote instruction. governor gavin newsom told us he's confident california schoolchildren will be able to remain in person, even without the availability of vaccines for younger students. >> we are going to hold to our
high standards and continue to be as vigilant as we possibly can in terms of what happening, but moreover continue the vaccination efforts of the state. >> he says well state employerse are required to get vaccinated, teachers won't be, at least for now. >> that is something that is bargainable at the local level. >> in the short term, the main message will be to encourage, not require vaccines for staff, students and their parents. >> on this wednesday, we are holding a statewide virtual town hall, we will reach a million californians, saying it's not too late as our schools are beginning to open to get your vaccine. we will continue to lift that message up over and over again. >> some of the parents and teachers we meant early on in the -- we
met early on the pandemic. >> one of the positive things about this pandemic was being able to meet and bond with some of the parents and teachers which, had it not been for covid, would not have happened. from day one, they shared their frustrations and feelings. 17 months later, has it months? they shared with us this moment of returning to the classroom. >> we will be successful. >> we will be successful. >> at oak. >> reassuring words as students prepare to enter the classroom while facing much uncertainty around the delta variant. >> just want to be safe. >> it's past due. >> the mayor had this to say. >> we can never shutdown our schools again, our babies need to learn. >> there needs to be an adult or someone responsible with the children.
>> we met reginald mosley early on in the pandemic working from home while supervising his three children. this is what he had to say about a year ago. >> for working parents, especially single parents, that is rough. >> as in person learning resumes, he says schools need to focus on the learning loss some students experience. >> they will be in class the first couple of weeks, the teachers do an assessment, and that's great. providing the results of that assessment to parents, i would like to see that. >> this was olivia in april 2020, one month into distance learning. >> the classroom is going to be in your home and i'm going to be your teacher. >> today, we met her outside the elementary school after spending her first day with her kindergarten class. >> spend a lot of time watching hands, eating slowly and
spreading out and remembering why it's important to wear a mask. i covered a lot less than i normally would on the first day of school but i think it's ok. that is what i learned from the pandemic, slower is better. >> she is -- it is grade school, so that means none of the kids are vaccinated. when that teacher says everything is being done at a slower pace, it means they are making sure kids know the importance of those per call. they were excited. larry: i imagine, just to be able to see their friends, how about the teachers? obviously they are concerned about returning to in person learning. is there anything outside of vaccines for everybody that would make them feel safer? >> i hear more and more saying they would like everyone, teachers and staff, to be you hear that a lot among the
lower grades. number two is testing. oakland unified has a number of testing sites but they only operate during the week. and from 9:00 until 3:00 -- so it's not ideal for those teachers. the school board will introduce a measure way sites at every school, so we will keep an eye on that. larry: abc seven chronicled the challenge of remote learning at one oakland high school for all of last year. you can stream all seven episodes -- it's a really compelling docuseries called mac -- a pandemic school story. you can watch it now on the abc seven bay area tv app or wherever you do your streaming. >> federal data shows nearly 73% of u.s. counties are reporting high community transmission right now. the average number of new covid-19 hospital admissions has surged to almost 8500 a day, up free hundred percent in the last month. nila terry members will be
required to get vaccinated, the defense secretary says that will happen no later than -- military members will be required to get vaccinated. returning to school and covid in general. do you think it is safe for children to go back to school in the bay area, looking at our numbers and mask protocol? >> i do. one thing you underlined right there is you said in the bay area and in the bay area, wherever it is possible, schools have those layered levels of protection to make sure those kids are able to go back to school safely. i worry about situations where there's a lower vaccination rate or where there's no mask mandates at all. we know we are dealing with a much more transmissible variant and we will see spreads, which is why from july 22nd, we saw 72,000 cases in children, up
84%. that is what i'm worried about. when there's a safe environment, i will feel more easy. kristen: the american academy of pediatrics is urging the fda to advise vaccinations for children but they haven't -- moderna has not submitted their clinical trials yet. >> it got pushed back because they increased the size. in theory, that's good to see more efficacy but what the american academy of pediatrics wants to see is more urgency submitting the data they already have, and to see that we can push that faster so we know the vaccine is extremely safe in kids 12 and up. that may be different -- maybe different in the efficacy but people believe we have enough data to move a little faster and get the line to get those kids eligible by the end of the year. kristen: what about full approval for adults? do you think that will be a game changer in terms of convincing
hesitant? >> i think it will be a game changer. number one, there are a lot more businesses including the federal government -- hospitals will be able to mandate the vaccine and this will hopefully silent anyone out there who says it is an experiment all vaccine and has not gotten approval. hopefully seeing as much as 10 times data, that will convinces people and, fingers crossed, this will happen sometime in september. i heard the estimate was labor day, so we'll see. it needed to happen yesterday. kristen: indeed, because hospitalizations are going up around the country. san francisco has been a leader in keeping it at bay, but even with high vaccination rates, the numbers are still going up. why? >> we have a much more transmissible strain. when we were talking about the alpha strain, one person might be able to infect two or three other people. but the delta variant, you are
able to infect eight to 10 people. so that number is 70% to 80% that might not -- that number might be higher with the delta variant. it's a much more contagious virus and more people are coming into contact with it. when you have that type of probability, you are going to get more people who are symptomatically possibly wind up hospitalized. that's what we are seeing play out across the entire world. kristen: when do you think this fourth wave, this delta surge will peak or drop-off? >> according to the models we are seeing, it is going to peak and possibly drop off in september or october. the worry is that a more virulent variant could show up if we continue to let this virus do what it wants to do. kristen: thank you so much as always. if you have questions about getting a booster shot, you can ask the abc seven news vaccine team. larry: under attack -- a couple
robbed at gunpoint. today, the good samaritan who stepped in speaks only to abc seven. a dangerous fire -- the dixie fire the second largest fire in california history and its far from under control. code red as these fires rage -- the warning from climate experts and what needs to be done right now. >> air quality in the bay area is improving but we do have a heat wave coming our way. i will - i'm norm. - i'm szasz. [norm] and we live in columbia, missouri. we do consulting, but we also write.

larry: investigadeputy this waro felony warrants. it happened as the deputy walked up to a car because it had expired tags. that is when the driver sped off, hitting the happy, dragging him a short distance. he is expected to recover. the sheriffs office believe they know who did it and they are looking for them as we speak. just days after the brazing -- brazen perch snatching in chinatown, the good samaritan who is shot buys as he jumped into help speaks only to abc seven. this comes as more business owners are speaking out, showing us the extreme lengths they are going to try to stay safe. >> calm everyone de-escalate the situation, but then it really got out of hand
really fast. >> it took only seconds for this man, who wants to be identified as mr. lee, for active shooter training to kick in. >> i would never expect something like this to happen in broad daylight with lots of cameras around. there's a lot of police presence around. >> he was out shopping with his mom when he saw two couples targeted in a violent person snatching. one man was pistol whipped. you can see in this video the moment when mr. lee jumped into action and was shot twice in the armpit and leg. this incident comes on the heels of a number of attacks in oakland chinatown, including two violent robberies in a two day span at ninth and harrison last month. one block away,,, earlier, a jewelry shop owner witnessed two women get their handbags snatched. you can see the owner pick up a stool and hurl it at the suspect as they get away.
>> i just felt so bad that i wanted to stop them. >> according to the chinatown chamber of commerce, a number of businesses are closing early. >> but now we have to close at 4:00. it's just so dangerous. >> he says he has no regrets but shares this word of caution -- >> if you are getting robbed, think about your safety first, don't think about your possessions. possessions can be replaced. kristen: governor newsom got personally involved in the effort to clean up homeless and campus around the state. he joined a crew tasked with picking up mounds of trash and debris under the university avenue overpass in berkeley. >> what you see here is unacceptable. a big fire here -- this is a sa risk, there are quite literally
hundreds and hundreds of rats running around. people should not live in conditions like this and we have accepted it too long. kristen: he says more than 200 and cap meant to have been cleaned up around the state in the last three months. he says we will see more efforts thanks to one $1 billion in new funding to landscape and secure areas under the control of caltrans. ballots for the upcoming recall election could arrive in the mail as soon as today, but most will arrive next week. the ballot asks two questions -- first, whether governor newsom should be removed -- that is a yes or no. then, the second question -- which of the 41 lifted candidates should replace him. california's republican party voted not to endorse any of its 24 candidates. ballots must be postmarked by election day, september 14, when the polls will be open. some counties will offer early in person voting. larry: warmer weather is expected to ramp up fire activity for firefighters
battling the dixie fire. the blazes the second largest wildfire in state history. only last year's august complex fire was bigger. so far it has charred more than 489 thousand acres, destroying some 600 buildings. as morgan norwood shows us, thousands remain evacuated. this fire is still only 21% contained. >> the dixie fire once again exploding in size, now the second largest wildfire in california history. firefighters racing to contain the spread but surrounded on all sides as they drive through the flames. >> left behind a lot of stuff. fires ravaged through everything. >> people drive to evacuate as the exceed fire threatens 14,000 structures, already destroying more than 600 homes and the entire town of greenville. >> it's scary when you sit there and see all the smoke coming over the mountain and wonder where is that because you can't see it. >> further north, the mcfarland
fire raging as aircraft reinforce containment lines. as the wildfires tear through the west, the united nations sounding the alarm on the global climate crisis in its strongly worded report saying that it is unequivocal human influence has warmed the atmosphere, ocean and land. >> experts warn we will continue to see that extreme weather, including wildfire and hurricanes. larry: we will have more on the climate change report coming up in just a few minutes. a reminder you can get a live update on all the fires burning in california with our abc seven news wildfire tracker. you can find it on our website, abc seven news.com. kristen: is the weather trending warmer? spencer: i'm afraid it is -- the warm up will start tomorrow and continue for much of the week. we have been the beneficiaries of a favorable wind flow that
has improved our wind flow. we have mostly green dots, indicating good air quality. conditions are moderate to good right now and the sea breeze continues to flow. current surface speeds between 15 and 20 miles an hour for much of the bay area and you can see how much cleaner the air is that it was just a couple of days ago. our air quality forecast calls for good air quality to the north bay and south central bay tomorrow and better quality in the south central bay on wednesday and moderate everywhere else. we don't expect a significant decline for the next two days. here's a view from the rooftop camera looking over the breezy embarcadero. 78 at mountain view, 80 in san jose. here's the view from mount tam looking on the advancing low clouds and fog be getting to push through the golden gate. 79 in santa rosa, napa 74.
90 degrees in livermore. here's the view from the east bay hills looking toward mount diablo. this is the region that will be the hottest over the next few days. low clouds and fog will expand overnight, and we will have sizzling summer heat filling in our inland communities. it's take a look at the overnight conditions -- fog expanding across the bay. not very far inland. lingering low clouds but they will burn quickly back to the coastline, giving us a mainly sunny day. even along some areas of the coastline. low temperatures tonight in the mid to upper 50's. highs tomorrow, 67 and half moon bay. quite mild on the coast. around the bay shoreline, mid to upper 70's. san jose at 91, morgan hill at
87. santa rosa and the inland east bay -- will start to sizzle with highs in the mid to upper 90's. ose hire going to get higher as we gontweesday, thursday, friday, and saturdays -- saturday when we expect highs 98, 99 degrees. on the coast, upper 60's, two or three places may top out at 70 but as the weekend approaches, we will see the heat easing and temperatures will start to moderate to a more mild to warm pattern. kristen: canada opening its birth, but is at the right time to travel? larry: from biking to boating, the bay area group helping people living with disabilities get back into sports.
kristen: the delta variant is forcing people to rethink their international travel plans. larry: today, canada is opening its border to tourists from america for the first time since january while the cdc is adding countries to its very high risk level. kristen: we have a closer look at the travel dilemma. >> should you stay or should you go? that delta variant triggering changes in travel restrictions and healthres, making some travelers rethink their upcoming international trips.
>> there's still lots of hoops to jump through. if you are vaccinated, where a mask indoors and eat outdoors, you can manage your risks and make the best decision for yourself. >> not long after countries in announced opening plans and some have had to pivot, bringing back testing requirements. >> even if you are vaccinated, you need to take a test within three days of coming back to the u.s. >> canada reopened its borders, allowing fully vaccinated americans and for the first time since march, 2020. >> canada will be vigilant about takes -- about the vaccines and you will still have to get tested. >> the cdc added 16 destinations to its very high risk level including greece, ireland and the u.s. virgin islands. >> it's interesting because the cdc has that level for warning for a lot of countries that are handling covid lot better than the u.s. >> meanwhile, victory for one of
the world's largest cruise lines -- a judge ruled norwegian cruise line can require passengers show proof of a vaccination before boarding any of its ships in florida. the florida governor's office says they will appeal. kristen: the cdc has canada at level three, high for covid-19. level four is the highest warning. larry: code red for humanity -- a dramatic call for action about climate change in a new report just out today. we will take a look at the effects climate cha
committed to making the bay area at even better place to live and that includes the changing climate. a new report says it unequivocal human influence has won the atmosphere, ocean and land. the united nations climate panel says the world has rapidly warmed 1.1 degree celsius higher and preindustrial levels. if temperatures increase an average of 1.5 degrees celsius or 2.7 degrees fahrenheit, the world will see increasing heat waves, longer warm seasons, short of cold seasons. scientists say there is a chance to limit though warming but some impacts will continue to be felt for centuries. kristen: california and the bay area are not immune to the effects of climate change. we see drought, fire and the smoke from them. wayne freedman more on the risk of wildfires and how climate may be impacting them. >> it is good news and bad news mixed together. the good, after decades of
warning forecast by the intergovernmental panel are proving to be very accurate. the bad, now we are all of it the consequence. >> almost everybody is seeing direct impacts of climate change that has already occurred on their own life. >> dr. chris field directs earth science studies. california has begun seeing the impacts strongly, most recently in the ravaging dixie fire which continues to spread and destroy at an alarming rate. >> each day, the feet developed by the fire, it creates huge columns. >> the santa rosa fire chief brought back this photo after 13 days on the fire lines. after a quarter-century fighting fires, he has seen them grown more intense. >> the fires have become much larger and are moving more rapidly than we have seen before. >> most experts see rising
temperatures as inevitable with increased risk in areas like santa rosa. it's a classic wildland, urban interface. the city just cleared asart of a wildfire protection plan. it provides nearby homes a fire break and defense. >> what made this place one of the first you dealt with? >> this is an area that has not burned. >> in the best case, we can expect the world to keep warming for two more decades. faced with that, this kind of project offers at least a fighting chance. how may places are there like this in the santa rosa? >> there are areas all across the city that need this type of work, or else. larry: let's get to drew joining us now with a look at the other major problems we are seeing from climate change. true: heat and wildfire is the priority at the moment as we are entering the worst part of fire season.
but there's another long-term threat, one from rising sea levels that may be just as devastating. reading projections from the united nations climate report is like watching an invading army heading for san francisco bay. rising tides threatening large sections of shoreline. >> we are looking at anywhere from two to five feet of sea level rise by the end of the century and san francisco bay. for the bay area, we are ground zero for sealevel rise. drew: the executive director of the san francisco estuary institute produce detailed maps of what those changes might look like. at a full five feet, cyclical flooding coupled with other impacts of climate change could begin to cause havoc. >> we face a triple threat of sea level rise, rising groundwater and low land flooding. drew: he says the threat includes critical infrastructure from major freeways to airport runways and water treatment
plants. levy upgrades are in the works in many parts of the bay area, but david lewis, with save the bay says the report lends more urgency to the need to restore title marches and wetlands to absorb the increasing type. >> we have a tremendous opportunity in the san francisco bay area that others don't have. we can restore a lot of marshes that would provide natural shoreline protection and keep the bay healthier. drew: he says planning opportunities could prove critical to some bay area cities which have sunk below sea level and are vulnerable to flooding. one of multiple climate threats that now can only be viewed with an increasing sense of urgency. the report underscored the continuing threat of sea level rise because of melting glaciers and similar factors. scientists believe the phenomenon in the short term is likely to be irreversible. larry: irreversible does not
sound good. spencer christian joining us to continue the conversation. absorbing all this information, it feels like we are doomed to whatever is going to happen. we needed to do something d, 30, 40, 50 years ago. is there a ray of hope? spencer: one of the most frustrating things is scientists have been telling us for decades. this is not something new. these kinds of catastrophic weather events were going to happen because of human-induced climate change. either we as a population largely ignored it or there were elected officials who dismissed the science. now, we are facing a situation which we need to act globally in a hurry. how do we get all the other countries to cooperate and big industry to cooperate in doing what's necessary to slow the rate of warming? larry: we can't even agree on anything in our building.
never mind globally. drew, what is your take? this sounds rather ominous, especially down the road. drew: when we t whe greenhouse gases and carbon dioxide, it's unlikely in the short term we can reverse that trend rising so quickly but the point this report says is er at a creek point where we have a decision to make. we can continue to make the co2 level exponentially rise or we can make decisions right now that can slow the trend and over decades to come, begin to reverse it. just because it's not going to change overnight does mean we should not take the path that gets us to a better world decades or centuries down the road. in the short term, it's hard to change these things but you can do that in terms of how you use your dollars and you use your voice at the ballot box because you're right -- what happens in europe and asia affects us here and vice versa. what we are doing in the united states affects the weather
patterns around the globe. we have to combat this altogether because one nation cannot do it on their own. it's not going to make a big enough impact to slow the spread of a warming climate. spencer: i i i i industry for moving toward electric cars, other industries turning toward clean energy. drew: if you have an electric car, you plug it in. we have to get our dependence off of coal. that's the number one issue, that is what is creating so much of this greenhouse gas effect we have been seeing for decades. we have to get those renewable resources -- wind, solar, but the dependence on coal power plants, it's hard to get us off of right now. but i salute the people -- my friends are getting those electric cars, so we are going in the right direction. we are just going to have to do it more and more and we will get there. it's not that we are doomed or
the planet is going to be dead, but what we do now is seriously going to affect what our kids and grandkids and grandkids kids do down the road. larry: i vote for drew. drew: we are in a pandemic and here we go, we've both got these fevers we are trying to combat. it seems like as an individual you are so overwhelmed like i don't have enough power. you do. you do by voting for people who think like you and do it every day by the dollars you spent. larry: hopefully we can science our way out of this. drew: we can. spencer: smart our way out of this. larry: by accepting science. we need more smart people running things. that's for sure. spencer, you talk about your grandkids -- you want to leave them a planet worth living on. and to drew's point i will say this in closing -- the planet is going to survive.
it's whether we are going to be able to live on it. planet earth is going to be here and keep spinning, but whether it's going to be habitable for us is the question. gentlemen, thank you. abc seven is dedicated to covering climate change and the solutions to build a better bay area. you can see more, including how bay area researchers are using plants to fight climate change. on the abc seven bay area connected tv app. kristen: another sign of the times -- check out this terrifying video as water rises dramatically in an

your heart is at the heart of everything you do. and if you have heart failure, there's entresto. entresto helps improve your heart's ability to pump blood to the body. don't take entresto if pregnant; it can cause harm or death to an unborn baby. don't take entresto with an ace inhibitor or aliskiren, or if you've had angioedema with an ace or arb. the most serious side effects are angioedema,
low blood pressure, kidney problems, or high blood potassium. ask your doctor about entresto. kristen: time now for the four at four with spencer and drew. would you send your kids back to platt -- back to class? it's the first day of school for oakland unified students. masks are required at all time and if a student test positive, they will isolate at home. anyone expose can stay in class if they don't have symptoms and have two negative tests. about 850 students out of 36,000 will continue online classes but remote, independent study looks at front from what we thought of last year. what do you think? who wants to take this? spencer: i have school-age grandchildren. they are very young, first grade and kindergarten. they will be wearing masks when
they go back to school. they are in a progressive state, in massachusetts. i can't speak for all local districts across the country. kristen: i think every buddy has to make their own decision, looking at the situation in their community. but with me, looking at my son who is vaccinated and going back to his school that is 80% vaccinated and the universal masking requirements and still relatively low transmission in the community, i would say i feel comfortable but, if you have a kid who is immunocompromised, make your own decision. but in general, the bay area is looking pretty good. larry: it's going to see into -- it's going to be interesting how this plays out in florida and two-seat -- hopefully the kids will be ok. this is a human science experiment we are running. a scare in an elevator -- this is wild video. several people were trapped
inside an elevator in an apartment living in omaha, nebraska. it was at the basement level when it started filling with water because there was a storm in the area. the people inside say they didn't panic until the water level reaches their chest. she's got her phone -- i know you want to get the video and all that but i don't know that i would be doing that at that point. they called 911 and they got some friends and pried open the elevator doors. they were able to swim out. he'd drop his vape pen. you know it's serious if you drop the vape pen, right, drew? i'm good, i've got my vape pen. drew: i am advocating not to vaped. i'm claustrophobic, so being in an elevator is not the greatest. then the threat of drowning -- combine those two things, that's not my cup of tea.
way before it got to my chest, i would have been on the phone with the fire department or somebody. larry: i'm sure they were trying. it's hard to get an instantaneous response. spencer: i have claustrophobia also and i'm freaking out hearing drew describe his fear. i would have been on that phone the second everything stopped. get me out of here. kristen: i would have panicked. they are lucky they didn't get electrocuted or something like that. action star the rock is washing his hands of all the talk about celebrities who don't like to bathe. he tweeted over the weekend that he showers three times a day. his reaction came after celebrities like spouses ashton kutcher admitted last month they don't wash their young children daily and limit their own washing. he tweeted that he takes a cold shower in the morning followed by a warm shower after he works out and a hot shower when he gets home from work.
so he is on the other end of the spectrum, but larry, you work out a lot, like the rock. larry: we have similar physiques. drew: similar rests i am for sh. is this a thumbs up, thumbs down? [laughter] i don't understand this. especially if you have little kids, little kids are roaming balls of filth. they get dirty. spencer, your grandkids -- just go play outside and we will clean you on thursday. [laughter] spencer: there are quite a few days that i shower twice in a day, depending on how warm it is and if i'm perspiring, if i worked out, but i'm going to shower at least once a day. larry: and your coworkers thank you for that. kristen: low-flow shower heads.
that's it. larry: good for the environment, back to our earlier conversation. are allleli krte thu for s. la unanimous. the first thing everyone can agree upon. a man who ran on thers were playing and was able to evade security but not the ball girl. larry: the man flipped over the wall after the ball girl grabbed his shirt and that elicited huge cheers from the fan. missed tackles everywhere by security. these guys have to tighten it up. i like how she's getting in to position, getting ready to make the tackle. he was ejected from the game and could face prosecution. that's a slide drill as you go slow -- as you go side to side. i don't know who that young lady
is but i want her on my team. ronnie lott like ins dekes. spencer: i was thinking the same player. larry: wld have taken his head off. he's lucky she only got the shirt. but kristen, if you are down the line, would you go in for the tackle? would you be likely to make the play? kristen: no. [laughter] just let the security handle it. she should get something from the team. achieving autographed pictures or i don't know -- tickets? larry: tickets to a rams or chargers game. she's got good instincts. that's it for the four at four. that's it for the four at four. a very this is an epic bbq barbeque burger. cannonball! ♪ ♪ what? nothing, you're good. face is good. face is good. your face is there. try my bbq bacon double cheeseburger combo. only at jack in the box.
