>> i'm kenny choi. today protestors plan to put climate change in the spotlight on san francisco streets. >> kpix 5's jackie ward joins us with why they are pushing back after president trump's paris accord decision. >> reporter: this is causing quite a stir nationally, internationally and today, it's being called an emergency climate action rally here in san francisco. organizers are describing the paris climate accord pullout and a reckless roll back of climate reforms. governor jerry brown is making it clear that california will be undeterred by president trump's decision and will continue to pursue green energy. brown says that technology supports more than 300,000 jobs in our state alone. and he only sees that number getting higher. >> china is not stopping. china is going to have 11 million electric vehicles by 2030. who is going to make the batteries? who is going to make the electric cars? is that california and america that will be significant or are we going to give that to china again? >> reporter: it's not just democrats who say pulling out of the accord is the wrong move. we spoke to catherine baker a republican who represents the
east bay. she says regardless of your political party, keeping jobs in our state and country has to be the priority. so it's expected to be a peaceful rally at noon in san francisco in front of the federal building. >> what about the tech companies here in the bay area? what are they saying about it? >> reporter: they don't think this is okay at all! a lot are happy. the ceos from apple, facebook, google have come out publicly against this decision and tesla's elon musk has officially quit two of the president's business advisory councils. >> thank you. right now, crews in belmont are working to clean up the mess from a water main break. it happened around 3:30 this morning at the intersection of san juan boulevard and monte cresta drive. water appears to have crested up to at least one home. no word if any evacuations are in place. time check 6:01. let's check the roads with jaclyn. how are they looking? >> well, the san mateo bridge is getting a little crowded out there but it's still going to be a better option for many drivers if you typically take the dumbarton bridge i'll tell
you why we are tracking an accident and that's along 101 right at marsh road and it's slowing things down especially as you are exiting the dumbarton brakes there. you can see the delays building along 101 heading northbound approach marsh so give yourself some extra time if you are heading in that direction. other than that, your ride along 101 good until you get to san jose northbound direction. it's "slow, stop, go" from 680 to 880. very typical for this time of the morning. we'll take you to the bay bridge toll plaza where things are just as they should be, right? at least that's how they always look around this time of the morning. in the yellow 25-minute ride from the maze into downtown san francisco. those metering lights are on. roberta, let's check the forecast. i have been checking out all the action on the water this morning. the ferry is taking passengers back and forth all morning long and now i believe it's the san francisco fire boat taking a little morning cruise on the flat bay waters.
we'll get a little bit of a chop this afternoon small craft advisory in place after noon. flag is flat on top of pier 9 this morning. what a difference a day makes. you can even see the port of oakland this morning. a hint of stratus trying to work into the area but look gorgeous it is. yesterday we had drizzle and low clouds and fog. with the clear skies the temperature is dipped to 48 degrees in santa rosa. that is the coolest temperature i have seen all week at this hour. it is 56 with the sunshine in san jose. 57 degrees in oakland. pretty much in the 50s across the board. satellite-radar we have a clear slot right there right now with the swath of some stratus that's been building around the san mateo coast. earlier burnoff today resulting in warmer conditions. average high in san francisco 65. instead, mid-60s. san jose the low 80s and oakland above average, as well. we'll have the sunshine in pacifica through moss into montara beaches including half
moon bay. a little stratus hanging tight to daly city and colma. otherwise 70s and 80s around the peninsula today. 82 in palo alto. east palo alto same. 83 degrees cupertino. slightly warmer in campbell. rose garden district willow glen all in the low 80s with a bit of an afternoon breeze up to 20. east bay you will see the warmest temperatures up to 86 towards the delta, discovery bay, back through orwood where the docks are. 86 degrees in antioch and brentwood through tracy. 80s in vallejo, benicia, martinez. 60s in the north bay along the coast. 80s san rafael through terra linda and clearlake at 86. weekend forecast is coming up at 18 minutes after the hour. four years apparently wasn't enough for vallejo city leaders to decide whether cement plant should be built on the waterfront. the 32-acre facility would be located in south vallejo near sonoma boulevard.
last night the city council decided to put off the final decision. instead members ordered the developer to come up with a better description of the project and complete a final environmental impact report. the city will then reconsider the proposal at the beginning of next year. today, california democrats are applauding a new single payor healthcare bill that passed the state senate last night. but critics want to know how the bill will be funded. kpix 5's jessica flores joins us live in san leandro with more. >> reporter: california just got one step closer to a single payor healthcare system. it's expected to cost $400 billion but the bill doesn't include a way to pay for it. under that system, the government would replace insurance companies. the government would negotiate prices for all of california. supporters say it means big savings for families. the california nurses association was the lead sponsor commissioning a study that found californians could
save billions of dollars under the system. in part because of lower drug prices and because they would no longer have to pay anything. were the bill of course is in the bill is in response to the repeal and replace and repeal and replace obamacare. >> it got heated. >> i'm not a complainer, a whiner but i am a fighter and you can damn well better believe i will be fighting moving forward on this issue. >> reporter: opponents say it could financially cripple the statement. now this issue goes to the assembly and lawmakers are expected to add amendments and also face how to pay for it. reporting in san leandro, i'm jessica flores, kpix 5. another bill lawmakers are considering a measure aimed at clearing up a statewide backlog of untested rape kits. the bill would require law enforcement agencies to report the number of sexual assault kits they collect and justify their decisions when they don't
collect that evidence. one advocacy group estimates nearly 9,000 rape kits are waiting testing in california. the trial is now under way for a man accused of killing two women and injuring a store owner during a dispute in a san francisco jewelry store. 27-year-old barry white allegedly slashed the throats of two women at jewelrymart on brannon street some four years ago. he faces 16 felonies including murder. the jurors now must decide two things whether white is guilty and was sane at the time of the murders. white's attorney says a near fatal shooting left the defendant with a significant brain injury white pled not guilty by reason of insanity. time now 6:07. crews have called off the search for a young man who was swept over a waterfall at a northern california national forest. >> reporter: if you have been in a car around the bay area recently, you probably had
bumpy roads. coming up we'll tell you about help on the way. >> bumpy roads and slow roads. we are tracking some delays for drivers heading across the san mateo bridge as well as the dumbarton. we'll have details coming up. >> and from the kpix weather center, good morning, everybody, boy, we've cleared out early today. it's the first weekend of june coming up so many activities scheduled. so we'll have the complete weather outlook. ,,,,,,,,,,

falls after getting caught in the current. today san francisco mayor ed lee will announce the beginning of repairs on san francisco potholes. kpix 5's anne makovec is live in the richmond district where the repairs are set to begin. anne. >> reporter: yeah, this is something of course we have a problem with here in san francisco and all around the bay area. our roadways really are a mess potholes all over the place even driving out here. we were sort of doing that straddling of the lines. the good news is help is on the way. over the next two years, mayor ed lee has committed to spending $90 million for pothole repairs, repaving streets and striping. the metropolitan transportation commission a bay area wide agency has rated san francisco city streets as fair but distressed and in need of a combo of rehabilitation and preventative maintenance. well, talking to drivers today
when you mentioned the roadway conditions, you get frustration. >> i drive a volkswagen beetle. if i drove a truck it would be different. >> it's weather-related. and for some reason california doesn't keep up with roads or anything like that. >> reporter: so far, here in the city, they have been focusing on short term patchwork. you need to do more to protect it. mayor ed lee is going to be fixing a pothole. i'm sure he will have help. that's later on in the richmond. but another note on this subject. it can really cost drivers a lot when it comes to damage to your cars because of these potholes from flat tires to other mechanical issues. so hopefully this money will save us all money in the long run. live in san francisco, anne makevoc, kpix 5. san francisco salvation army is feeling the holiday spirit this national donut day. free donuts will be given out

good morning, everybody. kevin durant signed with the warriors last summer to make sure his career did not go without an nba championship. now, he took a lot of heat for that move. but he proved last night here against the cavs he is not riding on anybody else's coattails. steph curry trying to ease the pain of losing that lead in the nba finals a year ago. in the 1st quarter a faceful of basketball lebron with 28. the warriors found their stride at the end of the first have when andre iguodala hit a 3 at the buzzer for a 5 point lead. cleveland is not an elite defensive basketball team and it showed.
nobody picked off kevin durant and he goes right to the rim for the jam. same situation just a few minutes later. looked like moses parting the red sea to the rack for two of his 38 points for kevin durant. they blew the doors off in the seconds half thanks to just four turnovers made by golden state for the game. 113-91 the final. and the toughest question after the game kevin durant answered was about his final shot of the night. >> toward the end of the game, you shot a three kind of putting the dagger into them and you looked towards the crowd toward rhianna. was that on purpose or do you remember that or -- >> i don't even remember that. >> well, just let you know, social media is buzzing about it. >> really? >> yeah. >> don't get in that trap. >> yeah, don't get in that. >> i'm cool. >> reporter: now, kd knew. he knew. the warriors are just dominant

take the climate change fight to the streets of san francisco. >> kpix 5's jackie ward breaks down why they're calling out president trump for his paris climate accord decision. >> they are not the only ones calling him out. it's not just some san franciscans against it difference corporate america overwhelmingly urged the president to stay in the agreement city did fight is the white house saying this will save millions of jobs in the coal and oil industry despite that. businesses are against it because they claim this deal makes the u.s. less competitive. governor jerry brown agrees so does east bay assemblywoman catherine baker. the republican says the first priority for elected officials of both parties has to be protecting american families. >> regardless of your party, we are affected by the environment. and if we have disagreements about how best to protect the environment and jobs we need to be at the table together working on it just walking away doesn't do that. >> reporter: foreign leaders are also condemning the president's actions with the leaders of germany, italy and france all rejecting president trump's offer to renegotiate. an emergency climate action rally will be held in san
francisco at noon today in front of the federal building. time now 6:31. thank you, jackie. we are going to get a check of the forecast with roberta gonzales as we take a live look outside. beautiful shot of the bay bridge. how's the climate looking this weekend? >> did you just see that bird take a dive? that's how clear it is outside. we can see that. we're looking towards the port of oakland this morning. you see that very thin layer of clouds that is pushing into the bay this morning. otherwise, we have seen earlier burnoff. that's sfo. no reports of any delays there. 48 degrees at this early hour in santa rosa with the clear skies. 53 in livermore. temperatures are pretty much uniform in the 50s across the board except in the north bay. where we lack any kind of cloud cover and have cooler air mass in place, i have been watching our slight and radar. what i have noticed is that we have seen the development of this swath of clouds off the coast. watch this right there. the san mateo coast. otherwise it's a clear slot. three things i want you to remember about this weathercast
today. the low clouds and low fog very shallow very thin layer. and we'll pretty much back off over the open waters to a mild afternoon. and, in fact, for the next couple of days, warm weather inland. and just so you will know for the month of june through august, we average less than about a half inch of rain here in the bay area. so we're talking summer is returning to the bay area. 60 in pacifica with the sunshine. 60s 70s bayside today approaching 80 in redwood city into belmont. san mateo, as well. site of and 80s as we swing across the santa clara valley mid-80s to the east. low 80s to mid-80s to the north. your full forecast is coming up at 48 minutes after the hour. we'll talk more about your weekend outlook. but first here jaclyn. what's up? >> well, we are tracking delays for drivers heading on 101. that seems to be the hot spot this morning. a couple of crashes. we'll begin in san jose where we have been tracking this crash on the on-ramp to northbound 101 story road, that
currently blocked by the accident. and traffic is backing up towards yerba buena island at this point if you are traveling northbound. northbound 101 at marsh road we have one lane blocked. and you can see speeds drop below 20 miles per hour. and it is "slow, stop, go" as you are making your approach towards marsh road. it's sluggish across the dumbarton bridge as well as the san mateo bridge. 16 minutes from 238 on out to 84. antioch ride highway 4 looking okay a few slowdowns through pittsburg but 242, man, it is in the red! 7 minutes just to make your way from highway 4 on down towards 680. hat's a check of your traffic; over to you. californialda sanctuary state from federal pot laws. the state assembly voted yesterday to shield state and local law enforcement from helping fda agents arrest people who are complying with state marijuana laws. the author of the bill says it would reassure those who comply with the state's cannabis laws that they would not get in
trouble with the federal government. a plan to replace private healthcare with the government run plan is moving forward in sacramento. many questions remain like how it would be funded. kpix 5's jessica flores is live in san leandro with more on this single payor healthcare bill. reporter: that's a huge question. it would cost $400 billion and the senate last night approved the single payor healthcare bill but no way to pay for it. now, under this bill the government would replace health insurance companies. the government would negotiate prices for all californians. supporters say it means big savings for families. the california nurses association was the lead sponsor and they put out a study that found californians could save billions of dollars under the system in part because of lower drug prices and because families would pay nothing. now, the bill is a response to efforts to repeal and replace the federal affordable care act
and the debate at the state capital got heated. >> quit whining and start leading. quit complaining and -- and start introducing things that make sense. quit blame republicans! this is a state that's run by one party. it's time to see you lead. >> reporter: opponents of the bill say it could financially cripple the state. now the bill moves ahead to the assembly where lawmakers are expected to add amendments and they will also have to figure out a way to pay for it. flores kpix 5. state lawmakers have taken the first step to do away with daylight saving time. the proposal that was approved by the state assembly would keep california on a single measurement of time year round. it now heads to the state senate where a similar effort died last year. today first responders from all over the country will be in menlo park this morning to discuss how drones can help fight fires. the unmanned aircraft are being used more and more including at
a fire in west oakland back in march that killed four people. crews used thermal imaging from a drone to monitor hot spots. today's event starts at 9:00 at the slac national accelerator lab. fire crews say that strong winds and dry conditions turned a small grass fire into fast- moving flames right along a fairfield highway. 80 firefighters rushed to highway 12 yesterday afternoon to battle the four-alarm blaze. crews shut down westbound traffic during rush hour yesterday. they say that visibility was the key concern. >> yeah, there was a lot of drift smoke across 12 and pennsylvania avenue which was making it difficult for drivers to see. and for the safety of our firefighters, we needed to shut down the westbound lanes of 12. >> residents in an apartment complex off highway 12 were told to evacuate as crews worked to contain the fire. police say dozens of people are dead after a lone gunman fired shots and set fires the in the philippines.
>> i can hear gunshots! [ gunshots ] >> cell phone video captured the chaos inside when hundreds ran for cover. officials say all 36 people died from smoke inhalation. they are calling the attack a botched robbery. the coo of the resort extended his sympathies to the workers and guests killed in the attack. despite isis quickly taking responsibility for the attack, police believe the gunman acted alone with no links to terrorism. a jury has convicted three men of murdering a young mother in west oakland. in march 2015, 30-year-old chyemil pierce was shot while trying to shield her children in a gun battle outside her home on chestnut street. yesterday an alameda county jury found michael stills, alex davis and anthony simms guilty of second-degree murder. sentencing is scheduled for later this summer. several other suspects still face trial. three correctional deputies who were supposed to
uphold the law will be spending time in jail. the jury found the three men guilty of second-degree murder for beating mentally ill inmate michael tyree to death back in august 2015. the men are scheduled to be sentenced on september 1. time now 6:39. bart police believe they finally tracked down the person behind a string of car break- ins at several stations. >> a young speller from california pulling off a big upset in the scripps national spelling bee. >> and the market just opened up about 10 minutes ago. let's check the big board. you can see the dow up 9. coming up we get an update from kcbs radio's financial reporter jason brooks.
what if there was a paint for your door... ...that not only made a big first impression... ...but was designed to withstand sunlight this bright... ...this bright... ...or even this bright. if a paint could protect your door's color against the strongest uv rays... ...it makes you wonder... is it still paint?
good morning welcome back to kpix 5. your time check is 6:42. this is our live weather camera looking out from san francisco. we can see all the way to the port of oakland. we're fog-free. we'll talk about the fog and the effect on your weekend. traffic and weather coming up at 6:46. time for a look at what's coming up later on "cbs this morning." norah o'donnell joins us now from new york. good morning. >> reporter: hey, good morning to you, michelle. we'll talk with john dickerson about the political fallout from the president's decision to withdraw from the paris climate accord. plus mellody hobson about what this means for the economy. also, seth doane on a remote island in the south pacific. it's considered to be one of the most vulnerable areas to climate change! and the 12-year-old winner of the national spelling bee will join us. what she really wants now that she won. all that plus the eye-opener
and your world in 90 seconds. see you at 7:00. >> she is from fresno so that's cool. >> yes, very cool. she wants tickets to the game of basketball game you know what i'm talking about. >> i bet it's the warriors. all right. nora, thanks so much. we'll see you and find out at 7:00. >> take care. time now 6:44. the latest jobs report is out and the numbers are lower than expected. kcbs radio's financial reporter jason brooks has that and more. >> reporter: good morning. hiring was definitely cooled off in spring as the labor department reports a gain of 138,000 jobs in the month of may. that was well under expectations. it also revised the prior two months lower by a combined 66,000 jobs. despite that, though, the unemployment rate went down to 4.3%. it hasn't been that low since 2001. wage growth was probably the brightest spot in the report.
it was up 2.5%. that matched the gain the prior month. now, this report could really weigh on the feds' decision this month. it meets in a couple of weeks. before this report, odds were high that the fed would raise interest rates again. but with hiring weakening over the past couple of months, that may add into the calculus and pull those odds back a little bit. restoration hardware is having a rough day. its earnings report for the 1st quarter was a revenue gain over 23% but it did a lot of discounting and that pressured its margins down. and restoration hardware also provided a very weak guidance for the rest of2017. as a result, its stock is plunging this morning! by 25%! overall the stock market is trying to build on the gains from yesterday in which all three major indices closed at record highs. so far, so good. let's go to the big board and see how we're doing so far.
the dow is up by a couple, all three indices up a bit. thank you. this morning, bart police say that a teenaged boy is behind more than a dozen car burglaries across the bay area. in the past week alone bart said at least 16 cars were burglarized including nine at the millbrae station. officers say they caught the teen and another minor breaking into a car near the daly city station on wednesday afternoon. because the suspect is a minor, bart police are not releasing his name. bart is warning riders to expect delays tomorrow if they are traveling in fremont. the agency is closing the warm springs south fremont station to make progress on its bart- to-silicon valley extension. they will be running test trains. the agency is offering a bus bridge between warm springs and fremont during this saturday and sunday closures. time check 6:46. let's check the roads with jaclyn. >> bart is on time. that's good. good morning. we are tracking delays for
folks making their way along 101. that's the hot spot this morning in palo alto as well as san jose. a crash near marsh road still has one lane blocked and you can see traffic continues to back up a little bit beyond 84. if you are heading just south of there we are seeing slowdowns starting to stretch through sunnyvale and down into san jose. that earlier crash still blocking the story on-ramp to northbound 101 there. they are waiting for a tow truck. and traffic is slow. you will be tapping on those brakes northbound 101 from yerba buena island to 680. as you continue around the bay, 880 still checking in problem- free looking good along this stretch through oakland. no delays in either direction. we are in the green 17 minutes from 238 on to the maze. we are tracking our usual slowdowns out of antioch heading over to hercules. not too bad. we just jumped into the yellow though 39-minute ride southbound 242 looking better out of the red. still in the yellow.
