ballot can have a long-lasting impact on the state. it is a long ballot with a lot to choose from. the first race you will deal with is the governor. liz kreutz down with one candidate hoping to challenge governor newsom for the job. >> governor newsom is expected to win his reelection handily but issues around crime and safety and homelessness and drug crisis are front of mind for many californians. bay area author michael shellenberger has thrown his hat into the ring. he is hoping by talking about these issues here will be able to break through. as californians receive their ballots for the june primary, they will find a long list of candidates hoping to take on governor newsom for the top spot. among them, michael shellenberger. an environmentalist turned homeless advocate and author of the book san fransicko. the democrat turned independent told us he is running for
6:01 pm
governor to put an end to homelessness and drug crisis across the state. you're running as a no party preference candidate. how would you describe your politics? >> truly independent. there are seven things i cerro -- i share with democrats there there is of things i share with republicans. the basic strategy i believe we need to follow is the same one they have done in europe including the netherlands and portugal. >>'s plan includes creating a centralized state wide psychiatric interdiction care system. this would replace the current county based system should he would enforce a statewide and on public camping to get people off the streets immediately. >> we do have a camping ban in san francisco and most other california cities paired we need to enforce that and enforce laws on public defecation, public drug dealing. those things are not compatible with having a livable, walkable city. >> we asked him what that would mean for a place like san francisco's tenderloin. your policy would be anyone
6:02 pm
camping on the street is breaking the law. you can be arrested. and then you can go to jail. you can live with a fairly member. you can go enjoy shelter. you can go into a treatment program. >> that is right. being arrested is not the same thing as being incarcerated. we can arrest people all the time without putting them in jail or prison. they make it a court sentence or court date but there has got to be some consequence for breaking the laws because it turns out when you don't enforce laws, people don't follow them. >> it is unclear if the proposal would be possible. critics point out their ethical and legal concerns around mandating services. shellenberger believes it is time to take a more hard-line stance on these issues if the state wants to see any improvement. >> the cost of living in california is outrageously high. we should demand from this high cost of living, these high taxes safe streets, safe cities. >> as for the other issues,
6:03 pm
shellenberger says he is pro-abortion rights. he supports gun control laws. and supports increasing the minimum wage. on climate change, he supports increasing nuclear energy and that includes keeping diablo canyon open. as for his chances and of the june primary, the top two people with the most votes will face of in november. >> it is interesting he is running as a no party preference candidate. do you think that is going to help him or be a hindrance and is there a leading republican candidate he is up against? >> the gop has endorsed state senator brian doll. he is a farmer from lassen county. the reality is california has not had a republican governor in over a decade since arnold schwarzenegger and given the political breakdown of the electorate, it is unlikely there will be a anytime soon. some political strategists say running as no party preference may be a better strategy in california then running as a
6:04 pm
republican. >> that is interesting. election day is less than a month away as i said in ballots are already in the mail. they're going to every registered california voter. you have one more week to register to vote. mail-in ballots must be returned or postmarked by election day june 7. you can vote in person if you choose. >> high winds and high fire danger forced prescribed burns in the east bay to be canceled. prescribed burns are a priority for reducing injury around the bay area. as leslie brinkley found out, lots of new technology is being tested out and coming our way soon. >> in livermore and in rodeo, prescribed burns were canceled. the wind made it too dangerous but prescribed burns are still a priority. >> it reduces that fuel in the open space by providing a nice break between the houses and the open space that were very strategic in the area. it provides some extra defensible space.
6:05 pm
>> we can change the way we manage the land. that can make us more resilient in the face of climate change. >> besides prescribed burns, fire scientists and engineers across the uc system are thing of efforts to address a year-round fire season. this summer, engineers at uc davis are hoping to experiment with launching a swarm of drones into prescribed burns. the goal is to measure toxins directly in the plumes of smoke and not just use ground sensors. >> you can think of this as your eyes and ears and nose in the sky because you're seeing what is happening. you're also detecting what substances are there. >> the drones could be operational in real wildfires the next few years. at uc riverside, experts are quenching big data. from every wildfire across the country to come up with a system down the road that could provide
6:06 pm
firefighters with an instantaneous prediction of wildfire behavior. >> once we have all these together, a firefighter would be able to point on the map and say this is where the wildfire is right now and that will tell them right away what should be done to >> the fire training and prescribed burn that was canceled in rodeo is instead supposed to start tuesday morning. expect to see flames. expect to see smoke along interstate 80 for the rest of the week no need to call 911. >> let's check in with sandhya patel about our possible fire concerns ahead. >> those concerns are because of a change in the wind direction that is coming. right now, they are transporting higher humidity from the ocean toward the land 43 miles an hour in san francisco. san mateo tomah 24. gust to 28 at the sappho. -- at sfo. a severe drought, we have been
6:07 pm
in drought for multiple years now. the offshore winds that are about to develop are going to raise the fire concerns in the hills. tomorrow evening, you're looking at 26 to 30 mile-per-hour winds out of the north. as we head into wednesday and thursday going into the end of the work week, you will notice a northeasterly wind developing. that is going to drought the atmosphere even more. that is going to bring the concern. relative humidity is not bad at 7:00 tonight. it is later in the week those humidity values starts to plunge. on wednesday, we are going down to 10% in fairfield. remain vigilant especially over the higher terrain. >> we are going to make a turn now to these terrible tragedies. unthinkable loss of life this weekend here in california. a church attacked by a gunman. numbers of the congregation taking action. across the country in new york,

6:09 pm
gunfire with the shooter whose body armor protected him from getting injured. >> the fbi is looking into adding hate crime charges against a man who opened fire yesterday at an orange county church. officials say david choh was motivated by anger over political tensions between china and taiwan. they say he tried to superglue or logs at the church to prevent parishioners from leaving. collects we have discovered evidence that the individual was motivated by some type of hate and we want you to know we will be working to get to the bottom of every piece of evidence that has been uncovered. >> the person who died was john chiang, a doctor being hailed as a hero for charging at him so others could disarm him. experts who study violent extremism say these recent attacks have been a part of the growing trend in the united
6:10 pm
states. ryan curry shows is why those experts say it is time for lawmakers to take action. >> two mass shootings over the weekend resulted in several people dead. the flow and orange county authorities are labeling them as hate driven. >> what we have seen is crime has gone up and hate crime has gone up. >> brian levin studies hate and extremism at cal state san bernardino and he says these incidents them from ongoing tension between political and ethnic differences. he says lawmakers and authorities need to take a look at red flag laws. >> in south carolina, that terrorist was not eligible to have a firearm. the el paso shooter, his family reached out to authorities when he was attempting weapons acquisition and told he can get it. >> authorities say the gunman in the buffalo instance posted about his attacks and motives before executing it. part of the attack was streamed on twitch which other experts
6:11 pm
are concerned about social medias roles in these attacks. >> people had already recorded it and passed it on. i think as of this morning there were still links to it on twitter. >> a professor of media ethics at santa clara says misinformation and conspiracies online are factors any these events. > we living in an era where people are conflating truth with things we know clearly could be untrue. >> he fears video of the shooting could create scenario where others planning attacks could be influenced to carry them out which is why he and levan are calling on social media companies and lawmakers to do a better job regulating the hate and violence spread online. >> people should not be able to use these kinds of public, semi public utilities to promote hate when we know there are downstream effects in violence. >> when it comes to issues of gun violence, you can find an

6:13 pm
an online sports betting plan they call "solutions for the homeless". really? the corporations take 90 percent of the profits. and using loopholes they wrote, they'd take even more. the corporations' own promotional costs, like free bets, taken from the homeless funds. and they'd get a refund on their $100 million license fee, taken from homeless funds, too. these guys didn't write a plan for the homeless. they wrote it for themselves. time. it's life's most precious commodity, especially when you have metastatic breast cancer. when your time is threatened, it's hard to invest in your future. until now. kisqali is helping women live longer than ever before when taken with an aromatase inhibitor or fulvestrant... in hr+, her2- metastatic breast cancer. kisqali is a pill that's proven to delay disease progression. kisqali can cause lung problems, or an abnormal heartbeat, which can lead to death. it can cause serious skin reactions, liver problems, and low white blood cell counts that may result in severe infections.

6:15 pm
bay area, one of the most stubborn issues to tackle is homelessness. we are getting your numbers on how many people that involves shared the point in time count is required every other year by the federal government to receive hud funding. the 2021 count was delayed because of the pandemic. results are now in from seven of the nine counties. santa clara county has the highest total. for the first time, that number tops 10,000. alameda county is closing in on the 10,000 mark as well. after seeing homelessness jumped 22% since the last count. the increase is later -- is greater in contra costa county were almost as increased by more than a third. two counties saw a decrease. sonoma and perhaps surprisingly san francisco. joining me now to talk about this more is phil matier. always great to see you. are these numbers accurate?
6:16 pm
> it is about as close as we are going to get. it is people going out there and seeing what is on the ground as opposed to estimates about seeing how many people are applying for programs and such. it shows us a few things that are interesting as far as where the growth is going and where the decline is. overall, it is a mixed bag. it is not as bad as people thought it was going to be with covid. but it is bad to it shows little signs of letting up. >> it is still terrible. 10,000 in couple of counties at least. a lot of people think the problem is worse in san francisco. according to this count, that is not the case. alameda and contra costa county are going up significantly. 22% and 35% respectively. did homeless folks head across the bay and the east bay? >> they did not but homeless folks did appear appearing more and more in the east bay. one of the differences is in the east bay, a lot of people are
6:17 pm
living in their cars. that is obvious. they are parked along under the underpasses of the freeways next to railroad tracks. they are spread out more. it is another problem in santa clara. they're not as visually seen as they are in a san francisco and they're not having the impact as in san francisco on tourism and downtown business. san francisco did manage to reduce the number of people living on the street. how did they do it? by opening up hotels that have been shut down during the covid time because there were new tourists and turning them into quick homeless shelters and living spaces. how long they can keep doing that remains to be seen because it is a very expensive proposition. san francisco's visible homeless are out there. they now have a roof over their head. but the long-term solution whether it is alameda county, contra costa county or santa clara county or the smaller counties is going to be or than just rooms overhead. >> as a region, we are getting
6:18 pm
close to record-setting numbers. or than 35,000 people in our region homeless. the question is what can be done collectively? how do we address this problem on a larger scale rather than in each local town? > that is a staggering number. 30,000 plus. that is like pleasant hill. what we have to do is collectively start moving into phase two even while we are working on phase one. that is coming in with the facilities. we have homeless people out of their luck, need a hand, get back on their feet. we have another group that is mentally ill, drug addicted and alcoholic. that is a different problem. we are starting to see the governor call for it. i'm hearing city and county officials start to say what we need our rehab centers. not just hotels but rehab centers where people go and they don't necessarily have the option. you cannot stay on the street. you either go into a shelter or you go into a rehab facility. that is where we need to start spending money and working. that is going to be a tough one
6:19 pm
financially and philosophically. people want to see the problem fixed. they don't want to be coping with it anymore. >> they're not going to be help staying on the street. that is for sure. >> let's check today's pandemic headlines are the fda has authorized a new at-home test from labcorp that can tell the difference between multiple respiratory viruses including covid, the flu or rsvped it is the first test for all three. results are not rapid should have to send your sample in. you can order up to eight free covid test from the government. this is the third round of free tests should be offered to all americans. we believe the fda will authorize booster shots for kids ages five to 11 with them the next few days. if the cdc follows through with recommending them, kids boosters could start happening by this weekend. amidst this latest wave of cases, we asked dr. peter chang hung with ucsf to look at the future of covid.
6:20 pm
expects it to keep evolving. >> we have already seen and heard of colleagues who have gotten covid more than once. the estimate some people believe is unless we update the vaccines, you will expect it to be like the cold in terms of frequency. it is not going to be like influence at one time of the year. it is going to be throughout. people might get three or four infections a year. >> he did say it is not unreasonable for the country to have a goal of zero deaths from covid he pointed to vaccines being key. >> let's move on to the weather. maybe warmer coming. >> definitely going to see a warming trend starting tomorrow. let's take a look at those winds. they are coming off the ocean. 33 miles per hour. spring valley. mount diablo, 31. a dry cold front passed through. a few degrees below average.
