6:00 am
and i good morning, everyone. it is monday, may 2nd. i'm michelle griego. >> and i'm kenny choi. right now a plane powered only by the sun is continuing its historic journey around the world. >> kpix5 reporter kiet do is live at moffett field where the aircraft took off just about an hour ago. and, kiet, is everything going smoothly so far? >> reporter: yeah, so far, so good. they have been in the air now for about an hour or so. the entities team telling -- swiss team telling us that being in america is fantastic, that we understand their mission, especially when we are here in the bay area, in the silicon valley, they don't need to explain what they are doing, their mission, that we just get it. solar impulse 2 took off exactly at 5:03 this morning. they fired up immediately and with that giant wing span it took right off. and off she went to phoenix. their staff meteorologist very sensitive about cross winds so they chose this date for the calm weather. the plane goes at about 30 to 50 miles per hour so it will take roughly about 16 hours to get to phoenix. they will swing by the mohave
6:01 am
desert and san diego, both places that hold significance in aviation history. the crews worked throughout the night to prep the airplane, wheeled it out of the hangar at around 3:00 this morning. the plane is amazing, carbon fiber, 5100 pounds, wing span is 231 feet. flies on batteries that charge at night. they tell us they can fly indefinitely powered by the sun. this round the world flight is meant to show the world that clean technology works and makes good business sense and is a win-win for humanity and the environment. these are very long flights. the longest one took five days to five nights. the pilot for this journey is andre borschberg. the other pilot is joining us now is bertrand piccard. you use hypnosis. tell us how that works. >> i'm a doctor, i use hypnosis to treat my patients but also use it to be able to disassociate myself from the concentration of the stress of flying the airplane so if i have just 20 minutes free, i go
6:02 am
into hypnosis, i relax completely, i can regenerate my body and my mind very, very quickly and then go back to the controls. >> reporter: i hope you can teach us how to do that because it sounds like you're getting more sleep than just the 20 minutes that you're getting right there, right? >> yes, you know, with 20 minutes of hypnosis, you recover maybe two or three hours, so it's very, very powerful technique. >> reporter: excellent. you've been on this mission now for more than a year or so, right? what are -- what sense are you getting from world leaders, elected officials, policy makers? do you think like they get it when it comes to climate change around the world? >> i believe that the world leaders understand the necessity to solve climate change very fast now. but there is a lot of resistance with other people who don't have the trust and the confidence to make this step and this is where solar impulse is important. we show that the future starts now, we are already now with clean technologies available to
6:03 am
not only reduce c02 emissions but also to make profit and create jobs and make economic development. i think the highlight for me about spreading this message is when i was flying from hawaii to san francisco and i was live from the cockpit of solar impulse by satellite to the united nations in new york when they were signing the paris climate agreement and what i said is you are not only protecting the environment, you are launching the clean tech revolution and this is so important because now today you don't need to be on -- to be only ecological, you have to be logical. it means you replace the old polluting devices by new modern technologies that are efficient so you can go into electric mobility, insulation of houses, l.e.d. lamps, smog rid, this is the future, not only for the environment but just for the industry. it's the new market that makes better quality of life so it
6:04 am
really makes sense. >> reporter: i can imagine a lot of climate deniers seeing this and saying you're just a bunch of dreamers, crazy guys flying in a solar powered airplane around the world, that that's great. once you land we are going to move on and keep doing our thing. what's your message to the deniers? >> they are 100 years late. they should have said that to the wright brothers. when the wright brothers were flying, single seater, slow speed, only in good weather, 66 years later there were two men on the moon. so we are now opening a new era. it's not today that we are going to make 200 people flying on the solar airplane, but i bet formally in less than 10 years' time there will be electric airplanes flying with 50 people in short flights. people can land at airports at night in the city, no noise, no pollution. it increases the market for
6:05 am
airlines, for airport authorities, you know. and all these technologies can go now for cars, insulation of houses so they are more energy efficient, smog grids, distribution of energy. all this is a tremendous market. look what happened to kodak. they were fighting digital picture and they disappeared. the one who are fighting clean tech will disappear so now they have to embrace this change and diversify, go into that business. it's a question of business. and by the way, it's also protecting the environment so it's fantastic. >> reporter: excellent. solar impulse 2 landing in phoenix around 9:00 p.m. tonight and the last leg of the journey takes them in new york city and they will be in abu dhabi sometime this spring, possibly early in the summer. we are live at moffett field, kiet do, kpix5. kpix5's jackie ward is live in san francisco to explain why protesters are taking a stand.
6:06 am
jackie. >> reporter: michelle, it's the start of day 12 here now and as you can see, a couple of dozen hunger strikers still here in front of the mission police station on valencia and 17th. the group of strikers here are getting increasingly frustrated and ready to make moves surviving off just liquids for a week and a half now. a core group of five people continue to demand police chief greg suhr be removed from his position. this after alleged misconduct by the members of the sfpd. tomorrow the strikers will march to city hall where they intend to meet with mayor ed lee. >> not just saying something we are -- i mean, we are meeting with him. the city demands it. >> reporter: throughout this strike and proceeding the officer shootings, mayor lee has continued to support chief sur so the march -- chief suhr so the march will take place tomorrow at 12:30, start here and end at city hall. from the mission, jackie ward, kpix5. >> jackie, thanks. happening today, spare the air season launches.
6:07 am

6:10 am
them and we are giving less money to the cigarette companies. >> governor brown hasn't indicated whether he will sign the bill. big tobacco promised to launch an effort to put the proposals on the november ballot if they are signed into law. it's hard not to look at flashy billboards and it turns out those billboards could be looking back. they are dubbed spying billboards and they are part of clear channel's radar program. the huge scrawling signs are equipped with tracking technology and they can tap into your cell phone. one u.s. senator is calling for a federal investigation to see if it's a privacy violation. >> i'm not against technological advances in general but this tracking becomes a problem when people have no option to opt out. >> chuck schumer says he will ask regulators to determine if it's a privacy violation. big brother is watching. 6:10. researchers have discovered a spike in brain injuries on the playground. why they say it's not necessarily cause for concern.

to the foot of the macarthur maze, now tracking a 20 minute drive time and since we are past 630, we should start to see slowing here at the san mateo bridge and we do. you can see that the ride starts to back up from before the toll plaza out to about mid- span. get a check of the weather next. here's roberta. >> i have a beautiful view of the city, george, do you ever follow on twitter carl the fog? >> no. should i? >> yes, you is this. >> carl the fog, he's hilarious. that fog right there is named carl on twitter and carl the fog has made a return here to the bay area after sunny and warm conditions all weekend, that is going to cool us down today, especially along the coast and into the bay. good morning, everyone. right now we are at 51 in livermore after bottoming out at 48 degrees early this morning, san jose at 53 after topping off yesterday at 84 degrees. linda, she is in napa, she is reporting 50 degrees and she says she too has patchy fog this morning. hi there, linda.
6:46 am
the winds are under 10 miles per hour for the most part, san francisco at 6, nine in san jose, three in livermore but they are blowing up to 11 in the fairfield area. winds will increase later today out of the southwest 10 to 20, certainly not as gusty as when we left you on friday and, boy, on saturday it sure was blustery. there's the field of low clouds and fog hanging very tight to the coast this morning, extending well out over the open waters. it will take a while to see the clearing at the beaches. and then partly cloudy conditions all due to a trough north of the bay area that will spill a few clouds into our forecast. otherwise more clouds on wednesday through friday. satellite and radar indicates couple different areas of low pressure stacking up, one to the north of us, one way out here. this is the one that's going to produce a chance of rain showers on wednesday with the possibility of an isolated thunderstorm with small hail. we have to say chance, computer models are arguing with its advancement but we will keep you posted. here's your futurecast, we will see a little bit of clearing along the san mateo coast today, not much. partly cloudy skies at the beaches and you're going to
6:47 am
have significant cooling there. otherwise our futurecast does illustrate we will see the fog return later on tonight, overnight we will kick start your tuesday on a cloudy note. 79 state capital, down from 83 to 61 in monterey bay today, here's your sun up and sun down and smack in between today, 60s beaches, 60s, 70s, bay side, 70s will be common around the peninsula. up to 78 degrees in concord, down from 86 degrees yesterday. here's your extended forecast, unsettled, let's call it unsettled on wednesday through friday. have a terrific day. >> roberta, thank you. turning to politics now, one of the big topics at this weekend's california republican convention was actually tomorrow's indiana primary and what could be the last stand for ted cruz. >> melissa caen was at the convention so tell us, how was it? >> it was really fun. it was great. i love this stuff. i was looking forward to it forever. it was definitely the most exciting california convention in a very long time. republicans are only about 28% of registered voters in california and no republican has won a statewide election
6:48 am
here since 2006. so in recent years the g.o.p. state conventions have been a little more relaxed. in 2012, for example, the only presidential candidate who showed up was my fellow georgeian newt gingrich. he had to come through the back and the concrete structure that he walked on and had to sort of jump off to get to the hotel has become a bit of a destination. there are actually people taking pictures from the site. as one person explained to me at the convention, that piece of concrete is now a little bit of history. john kasich, ted cruz and carly fiorina also spoke but there were no protesters for those events. all of the speeches by the candidates were pretty short because each of them flew in from indiana and then immediately flew back to indiana to keep campaigning.
6:49 am
>> yeah, an unconventional way to get to the convention, right? >> exactly. >> we know that tomorrow is the primary in indiana. what's at stake there? how important is this one? >> important enough to zoom in and out of california, that's for sure, even though we've got way more delegates. indiana is very important for the g.o.p. they have 57 delegates and that is a lot now that we are down to the wire. now, indiana, new jersey and california are the three biggest states left to vote. so for indiana tomorrow allow me to use a football analogy. right now trump is on the 20- yard line, he's got 80% of the votes he needs. if he wins indiana, he will be on the 15-yard line and that is a pretty easy path to the end zone because after indiana there are a number of states, including new jersey, that trump is projected to win. if you add them together with indiana, trump would have the votes he needs to be the nominee. so for john kasich and ted cruz tomorrow is do or die. if ted cruz doesn't win
6:50 am
tomorrow, there are going to be calls for him to jump out of the race, it's that important. >> i think i know the answer to this question already but who is expected to win tomorrow? >> so far the polls show donald trump is ahead. there's one poll that shows ted cruz ahead by 15 points but that seems to be an outliar, all the other polls show trump ahead by an average of eight points, but indiana is very hard to predict because it is an open primary. so in indiana no matter what your party affiliation, everybody goes to the polling station and says i want the democrat ballot or i want the republican ballot and then you vote. so independents can vote for a republican candidate, even democrats who say this clinton- sanders race thing seems to be pretty much over, i'm going to jump in on this republican race. so there are all kinds of possibilities in this open system in indiana. so tomorrow could be a total surprise. then again, this year in politics has really been nothing but surprises so -- >> that's so true. melissa, thank you. >> thank you. this morning students at
6:51 am
half a dozen csu campuses will be marching to protest proposed tuition hikes after a four-year freeze with board of trustees recommending higher tuition. on top of tuition increases they are also protesting cuts to the school's college of ethnic studies at san francisco state students are meeting at malcolm x plaza at noon. time now is 6:51. the battle over prince's estate heads to court today and not just the late singer's money at stake. and that solar powered airplane that was in the bay area all week long just took off from moffett field. we will have a live report coming up. ,,,,,,,,,,
6:52 am
6:53 am
(group chatter) dude, dude, dude. this is bad. i think we're stuck. we're going to have to talk to each other or something. nooo. i don't like this elevator. (group surprised and laughter) how did that feel? was it fun being stuck? i do not like getting stuck! so, the nissan leaf s only gets 84 miles on a charge. the 2016 chevy volt gets an estimated 400 miles or more on a full charge and a full tank of gas. how's that for not getting stuck?
6:54 am
kind of like this look. i'm calling it the "name your price tool" phase. whatever. is getting underway in minna today. the late singer's sister and five things to know at the 55, the battle over prince's estate is getting underway in

6:57 am
solar impulse 2 is on an around the world trip to prove to government and policy makers that clean technology is viable, proven technology that is profitable, can create jobs and save the environment. the plane itself is a technological wonder. batteries powered at night and charges during the day, in theory that means it can fly forever. right now the longest flight they have taken has been five days and five nights from japan to hawaii. the plane itself is limited only by the endurance of its human pilots, they say but the team tells us the next phase is to go unmanned to see how long that plane can stay in the air. >> it's to make -- capable to fly, it's clear, we are not maybe a week but longer, alone is difficult. >> reporter: and getting to phoenix at that space will take them 16 hours. will put them in arizona
6:58 am
sometime around 9:00 p.m. wednesday night. and then their final destination to end this around the world trip will be in abu dhabi sometime in late spring or early summer. we are live in mountain view, kiet do, kpix5. >> why does the team want to thank the faa? >> reporter: they say the faa has been tremendously helpful and also airports around the country along with the faa have been very open and inviting to new technology. they say it's been touching and wanted to give a shoutout to the faa and all the aviation community out there that has been a wonderful time for them here in america. use for weather! >> and here's a live update from the kcbs kpix5 traffic center with an accident 680 southbound at treat boulevard, that means slow going on 242 coming down from concord. so expect delays now even from 680 as you head out of pleasant hill there. and we continue to monitor a delay at the bay bridge toll plaza with the heaviest traffic down the center lanes for fastrak users, drive time currently 20 minutes for your
6:59 am
westbound ride and the north bay still slowed with an earlier occurring accident, southbound 101 at petaluma boulevard. the weekend is over and the sunny and warm conditions over. this is our live weather camera looking out towards the return of the low clouds, the fog hanging tight into the coast and into the bay this morning, temperaturewise into the 50s, picking up a little bit of condensation in the form of a drizzle at the beaches. right now partly cloudy today and, yes, you're going to feel the significant cooling along the coast and bay side down from 78 degrees in san francisco to 65 and that's pretty much where we should be for the second day of the month of may. down from 86 to 78 degrees in concord. we've got temperatures in the 70s across the santa clara valley, down from 84 degrees yesterday. so from the coast the upper 50s, bay side 70s, inland 80 degrees towards discovery bay and brentwood, otherwise pretty similar conditions tuesday. whether computers are arguing, let's just call it unsettled wednesday through saturday. >> they are arguing. >> settle down.
