developer floyd kephart presented his plan today. it was attended by several raiders fans and several members of city council. however, the mayor's office and the raiders' organization didn't attend the event. >> i understand why they are not here. and the county elected officials are just like the city elected officials. we have not seen the final deliverables that mr. gephardt has submitted. >> the raiders have made it very clear without a new stadium in oakland, they want to move to l.a. and share a new stadium with the chargers in the city of carson. time to check in with our meteorologist. jeff, it was a beautiful day outside. warmer, but not unbearably hot. >> that's due to this area of high pressure in the desert southwest. it will stay in effect through
6:19 pm
the next two days, helping to boost our temperatures even lotter. let's look at the forecast throughout tomorrow. the warmest we'll go is the average of 94 in the trivalley. also 94 anticipated for the south average. we have been talking about the possibility of rainfall this week. that next biggest change would not get here until saturday. that's when temperatures cool to five and 10 degrees. you can see for the north bay in san francisco, that will be the best chance of isolated showers and temperatures dropping into the 70s. at this point, we'll stay dry down the peninsula, and also down into the south bay. i do want to get to an important update on el nino. the way it looks now, 95% chance and higher we could have el nino continuing to develop into winter and also spring. this would mean that wetter weather here down towards the southeast, warmer weather for the midwest, and then of course our rainfall potential here down across california. we have broken apart california because there are two distinct areas when it comes to these rainfall averages.
6:20 pm
southern california usually has an above average chance. that's what we're now seeing on the september through november climate averages. and an equal chance here of average rainfall for september, october, and also november. but with a very strong el nino event expected, the way it looks right now, we thought it would be very interesting for all of you to take a look at these numbers. the last time we had these very strong el nino events was back in 1982, 1983. also, '97, '9 8. there was eight to 10 inches of rainfall above the typical averages. that's what actually could be coming our way. you can bet we'll be on top of this with that el nino update as we continue throughout the next couple of months. coming up, thousands of california high school grads left in limbo without diplomas. the unprecedented action governor brown is taking. also, carpooling in the digital age. uber is giving discounts for certain routes. re

a lot of issues on the table. more californians are embracing obama care. and our new field poll shows it will play a significant role in next year's presidential election. the favorable opinions not only span all ethnicities but also cross party lines. among the state's registered voters, 62% support the law up from 56% last year. 33% oppose it.
6:24 pm
and when asked how important a candidate's position is on the affordable care act when deciding how to vote, 66% say it will be very important. 26% say somewhat important. and you see there about 4% not important at all. these numbers were similar when the survey was asked about congressional candidates. request denied. a lawmaker's request for an audit of planned parenthood was reject rejected. the request after the allegation that they profited from tissue of aborted fetuses. the issue was brought to light after secretly recorded videos of planned parenthood officials. pro-life supporters say the officials were discussing selling the tissue, but planned parenthood says that the videos were deceptively edited. >> we should not have our public institutions using our money to prop up these technologies. a green energy program is now under fire by lawmakers who

6:29 pm
of what measure b promised while staying out of the courtroom and repairing the police department. the effects of the measure b cuts could be followed by the falling number of police officers, a staff once at 1,400 cops is now down to around 900. today the city and the police and fire unions agreed to a new deal that for cops restores pay, including a 5% bonus and 8% in raises but also mitigates some of the retirement and disability benefit cuts. almost as important, it is designed to end expensive litigation and the ongoing public battles. >> i'd rather not spend a lot of time focusing on what if or should we have or shouldn't we have. what i know is where we were at in terms of what the police and fire offers were in march of 2012 and where we are at today is very different. >> no hard feelings? >> no hard feelings. it's always tough to move on from such horrible years. but we're willing to do it.
6:30 pm
and we need to do it. >> reporter: the police department says the new deal will help retain and recruit officers and also persuade some cops who left to return. >> quite frankly, we feel that san jose is their home. and to the extent we have read -- again, we've read the resignation letters. we know that the individuals that left this department did not leave because they wanted to. >> reporter: now again about two hours ago, the council agreed to this proposal on a 10 to one vote. since voters actually passed the measure first, they should have been the first to help modify it, says one critic, and he is also concerned that the agreement will lead to raising taxes. live in san jose, robert honda, nbc bay area news. hawaii police released new details about the arrest of cardinal william la vada, san francisco's former archbishop. he was arrested last week for dui. he was reportedly vacationing with other priests on the big island. however, he was alone when he was pulled over for allegedly weaving.

6:38 pm
most cities say filling potholes isn't really the big part of the issue here, but it's finding the potholes. that's the bigger problem. google wants to help with a system that uses the gps from cars' navigation systems. a bump sensor would be added to participating cars that would then detect and map potholes. basically, you drive over the potholes and it alerts google. google says it would create an entirely new system for road and transportation departments. uber is offering a new service. it's called smart routes. it's basically a carpooling service. it's been tested in san francisco. the two routes are in valencia between 15th and 76 and fillmore between the hait and az bury. >> that would be fun for the young ones. >> how young are thinking?

is it a good use of taxpayer money? millions of public dollars funneled to private companies that promise to make california more green. >> investigative reporter vicky nguyen first raised questions about how the money was flowing to a silicon valley fuel company. >> if you're a paying customer, you pay for a program paid
6:42 pm
designed to pay incentives to new green technologies to cut carbon emissions. but now three lawmakers says it has delivered minimum benefits at extremely high costs. they want changed, but one company does not. >> i set a very high bar. and it's a bar we must meet. >> reporter: governor brown earlier this year saying by 2030, he wants half of the power in california to come from renewable resources. >> the governor is really laying down an ambitious and visionary proposal. >> reporter: state assemblyman josh williams says california will never achieve that green vision without revising the state's self generation incentive program. it was created to fund innovation in clean technology to cut greenhouse gas emissions. >> extremely disappointed.
6:43 pm
>> reporter: he is disappointed with the public utilities commission. last month, he proposed new limits for companies who want that money. a 5% reduction from the current standard for greenhouse gas emissions. it's not enough for williams. he and others say a 20% cut is more in line with the state's goals, and if the puc won't do it, he says lawmakers will. >> frankly, i expect more from the puc. >> reporter: williams and two other lawmakers wrote this letter to picard, urges him to do better. they said if his proposal is adopted, they will continue the absurd practice of subsidizing natural gas consumption, supporting existing technologies that have already taken hundreds of millions of dollars. >> i wrote it because i thought it was important to not be vague and to not be lukewarm. i thought that it is clear that the legislature wanted a change
6:44 pm
in policy. >> reporter: at stake, $415 million. the puc has already doled out $1.4 billion in incentives to companies since 2001. sunnyvale-based fuel cell maker bloom energy has received nearly $400 million, nearly a quarter of the money, and the biggest piece of the pie. >> we should not have our public institutions using our money to prop up polluting technologies. >> reporter: sierra club senior attorney matt vespa has criticized them for sinking too much money into companies like bloom that make fuel cells. fuel cells traditionally run on natural gas, a dirty fossil fuel. >> it's not clean. it's very carbon intensive. and no, those should not get public money. we need to move past the era of fossil fuels. and to the extent we still use them, okay, but do we subsidize them? absolutely not. >> reporter: we analyzed bloom's project and found that 81% use natural gas, not renewables.
6:45 pm
the investigative unit first exposed last fall that bloom technology was emitting more greenhouse gas than advertised, and that bloom was benefitting from the lion's share of the funds. >> i love the word boondoggle. and, you know, you add an l to that and change the n to m and you get bloomdoggle. >> i don't think it's that far from the truth. a big fraction of the money is going to a single company that has a fairly polluting product. >> reporter: numbers show that bloom fuel cells may not be much cleaner than the grid we already have, which is measured in carbon output. we are told that the statewide emission rate is 799. pg & e's rate is 427. bloom technology, between 735 and 849. williams says that's not good enough to continue receiving public money. >> we cannot be in the business of subsidizing something unless it is cleaner than the grid.
6:46 pm
>> reporter: bloom declined our request for an interview. in public comments, bloom urged the puc not to change the standards at all, not even by the 5% picard is proposing. in an email, they wrote, bloom supports a standard that supports real measurable reduction today and in the future. the current standard does that. the company also wrote, there are seven separate measures of program success, one of which is greenhouse gas reduction. and our technology has significantly reduced carbon emissions for our customers and is the largest contributor to greenhouse reduction in the program. we caught up with the president in sacramento. >> will you change the standard? >> i don't know. >> reporter: he says his staff will consider comments from all sides of the debate. >> we will never make everybody happy on most of the things that we will do. >> reporter: he admits determining which technologies to include is a balancing act. >> this has always been a fairly controversial program because a lot of these technologies are
6:47 pm
new, they are developing. they are getting cleaner. they are getting cheaper. it's very tough for us to actually pick which technologies are winners and losers. >> reporter: meanwhile, assemblyman williams says he's confident that technologies like bloom's can meet tougher goals but will only do so if they're forced. >> one of the founders said, yeah, we can meet a higher standard. just set a standard, and we'll meet it. >> reporter: the cpuc is expected to take up the proposal at a commission meeting this week. we'll let you know what happens. all right. if you have a tip for vicky or any one of our investigative unit, give us a call or email vicky. we are talking about what's happening mid week. as we inch towards the weekend. can i say the weekend right now? >> no, too soon. >> he's excited. and we do have great weather coming our way this saturday and sunday. a little bit of a hitch with the
6:48 pm
potential of some showers, but that's still a great weekend considering the drought and our fire danger. let's get you outside to one of the best sky camera networks here in the bay area. you can see in the south bay, 81 degrees and sunny skies. 72 in the peninsula with winds out of the northwest at 9 miles per hour. currently in san francisco, we do have high clouds moving across as the sun sets. nice reflection off the downtown. in the east bay, while the average is 87 degrees, what you'll find in oakland is the current temperature is 68. and that's because we had that bay breeze that's beginning to move in. let's go ahead and take you to the morning forecast as we head throughout your wednesday. mid week forecast. what you're going to be able to see here throughout the south bay, we will have areas of patchy clouds coming back in 60, 59 for the east bay. light jacket might be needed in the north bay and 55 degrees. a lot will be happening in the
6:49 pm
west. an area of high pressure is sitting across the desert southwest. there's no indication we would get any kind of storms from this. those storms will stay off to the east. so the main driver of the weather on wednesday would really be hotter air. temperatures in the 90s inland and also just a touch of humidity. nothing too uncomfortable. but you'll notice it out there. but now let's take to you what we've been tracking, talking about the possibility of rainfall. the storm system is still out here. a moderate storm by many accounts. what the problem is, it's so far to the north. it's way near canada and also washington. and that's what the issue is today. right now the way the storm track has it, it's lifting a little bit more to the north. so our possibility of getting showers on saturday decreased a little bit today. but i still think as we head throughout the first part of your weekend on saturday the north bay has a chance of trace amounts of rainfall. nothing huge but something that would help that fire danger out and definitely some cooler temperatures as well. let's take you into the microclimate forecast as we head throughout wednesday. sunny skies in san jose.
