area is taking responsibility for our ability to impact the climate. climate change is the topic of a sobering report released today by the united nations, concluding the world has warmed faster than previously thought. >> this report tells us that recent changes in the climate are widespread, rapid, and intensifying. unprecedented in thousands of years. >> we see the effects of climate change right here in california and the bay area. drought, wildfires, smoky skies. wayne freedman has more on the risk of wildfires now that climate change may be impacting them. wayne: after decades off warning, forecast by the intergovernmental panel on climate change are proving to be accurate. the bad news, that all of us are living with the consequences. >> almost everybody is seeing direct impacts that have already
occurred. wayne: seeing those impacts strongly now. most recently in the dixie fire which continues to spread and to destroy at an alarming rate. >> the heat developed by the fire would create the moist air to rise up and create huge columns. wayne: steve souter brought back this photo after 13 days on the fire lines after a quarter-century of fighting fires, he had seen them grow more intense every year. >> the fires are moving much more rapidly than we have ever seen before. wayne: most experts see rising n temperatures and longer summers as inevitable with increased risks in areas like santa rosa. it is a classic wildland urban interface. the city just cleared this area, part of a community wildfire protection plan that provides
nearby homes a fire break and defense. >> what made this place one of the first you dealt with? wayne: if projections remain accurate, in the best case, we can expect the world to keep forming for two more decades. faced with that, this kind of project offers at least a fighting chance. >> there's areas all across the city that need this type of work. wayne: or else. in santa rosa, wayne freedman, abc seven news. larry: experts believe climate change is among the factors contribute into the dixie fire and it right be burning for nearly a month, fueled by heat, drought, and fierce winds. it is the second-largest fire in state history. only last year's august complex fire remained bigger. the official list of evacuations is eight pages long.

the san francisco estuary institute, which has produced 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 faced the triple threat of sea level rise, rising groundwater, and low land flooding from more intense storms. wayne: he says the threat includes critical infrastructure from major freeway stay water treatment plants -- free ways to water treatment plants. david lewis with the environmental group save the bay says the report lends even more urgency to the need to restore natural wetlands to help absorb the increasing tide. >> we have a tremendous opportunity in the san francisco bay area that other places do not have. we can restore a lot of marshes that will provide natural shoreline protection and also keep the day 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 also underscored the continuing threat of rising sea levels because of melting glaciers and similar factors. scientists believe, at least in the short term, that it is likely to be irreversible. let's switch to the weather and bring in spencer christian for a look at what we can expect over the next couple of days. spencer: relative to climate change, one of our great concerns in the bay area is wildfires and in recent days, we had smoke filtering into the bay area air. we had some improvement today thanks to a friendly sea breeze blowing onshore and pushing a lot of that smoke to our east. right now, moderate to good air quality across all of the bay area with the yellow and green dots indicating moderate to good air quality. we have a favorable wind flow.
our forecast for the surface smoke means it will push to the east and northeast. folks in the path of that smoke will find that uncomfortable. we will have improving quality through tomorrow. in the upper atmosphere where the more harmful smoke has been collecting. we have a favorable wind flow that will push the thicker smoke to our east and north. the forecast is pretty good through tomorrow but later in the week, a big warm up coming our way. things may change air quality wise. i will have the forecast a little bit later. larry: turning to our work to build a better bay area by protecting our health. we have good news tonight to report from today's estate release of coronavirus data, the test positivity rate went down, dropped to 6.3% on friday. the rate is 7.1%. monday's case counts are usually high because they include the weekends but today's total of
roughly 10,000 is the lowest monday in four weeks. we continue to see hospitalizations and icu numbers increase. the chief of emergency medicine at san francisco general hospital says he does not expect to see his hospital get overwhelmed. >> i don't see any indication that we will get overwhelmed. we are bracing for a significant surge but i strongly suspect that we in san francisco will be ready for it, particularly if we can react and continue the trend downward in the positivity rates. larry: it announced its first cobit deaths in months. two people died from the delta variant. both were unvaccinated and in their 70's. >> oakland unified held its first day of class today. teachers welcomed students back with many reassuring them about the efforts to keep them safe inside the classroom. one kindergarten teacher we spoke with shared what her day was like. >> spent a lot of time washing hands and eating slowly and spreading out and reading about
why it is important to wear a mask. i covered a lot less than i normally would on the first day of school but it is ok. that is what i learned from the pandemic so it was better. >> parents we spoke with seemed happy to have their kids back in the classroom. others expressed the need to focus on the learning lost some of those students experience. two of the state's top officials were in the bay area today, weighing in on the long-awaited resumption of in person 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. laura: state superintendent tony fairmansit tokld hool as an oppy to reinf the importance of a return to in persoclid a resurgent pandemic. >> even though there are many challenges facing us with the variant, this school district
has taken into account the needs of our students and put all the safety measures in place to ensure our students can continue to learn. laura: school districts will make testing available. along with support services to deal with the trauma and learning loss many children experience during remote instruction. governor gavin newsom told us he is confident that 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 we are going to continue to be as vigilant as we possibly can in terms of what happened at school sites but moreover continue vaccination efforts. laura: while state employees in health care workers are required to get vaccinated, teachers will not be, at least for now. >> what about mandates for teachers? >> that is something that is bargainable at the local level. laura: in the short term, the main message from the state will be to encourage, not require, vaccinations for staff,
students, and their parents. >> on this wednesday, we are holding a virtual town hall for californians, saying it is not too late as ours pulls are beginning to open, to get your vaccine. we will keep lifting the message up over and over and over and over again. laura: laura anthony, abc seven news. >> abc seven, called the challenges of remote learning at one oakland high school last year. you can stream all seven episodes of the docuseries and do it right now. download the free abc seven bay area streaming tv app for your roku or similar device. larry: your recall the ballot may have arrived and while those only two questions, it is enough to confuse some voters. we will get you some clarification tonight, also ahead. >> we close at 4:00. before, we would close at 6:00. and then we were close at 5:00. now, we have to close at 4:00. >> closing early, it's one thing
