rhetoric especially in the town of sonoma. >> this is completely unprecedented. we've never seen anything like it. >> reporter: it is a recent anonymous attack launched against rachel huntley and this is the video she launched in response. >> but instead of debating me on the important issues facing sonoma today -- >> reporter: huntley is running for election to city council. someone created a website blasting her lifestyle and morals and posting photos of the candidate at burning man. they threatened to take it live if she didn't drop out of the race saying she isn't fit to run for office. the website has been taken down. that hasn't stopped huntley from firing back. >> instead of challenging me on this votes, this website relies solely on unfounded accusations and shaming. its purpose is to make me afraid, to silence another strong female voice by scaring me out of this election and denying you the right to make a choice. >> reporter: but the attack
6:01 pm
has ripple effects beyond hundley. since this story broke the vice mayor said two people planning to run for office have chosen not to. >> chilling other people from participating in public life is really serious. it's really going to scare people into not running and not participating if the consequences are that people try to ruin you personally by doing what they think will humiliate you. >> reporter: hundley did not get back to us in time for this story to do an interview on camera. however, though the website has been pulled down, we do have photographs in our story. it's important to note those are photographs we pulled off of her facebook page which she says in her own video she proudly posted there, which is why we felt comfortable using them. live in sonoma, emily turner, kpix5. more destructive fires, brutal heat spells and rising sea levels, those are some of the effects the governor's office is warning about in a new climate change assessment. california has already warmed 1 to 2 degrees since the beginning of the 20th century. the new study says numbers
6:02 pm
could rise by 8.8 degrees by the year 2100. up to 11,000 heat-heated deaths are projected and climate change could -- heat-related deaths are projected and climate change could cost the economy $50 billion a year. >> this new report shows specifically where the bay area is headed if climate change continues at the current rate and it is not a pretty picture and officials hope local governments will use these findings to regulate future development. >> we do seem like every year to be in a competition for the worst fire. >> it's a competition where we all lose. polls show californians believe that something is wrong and the vast majority view climate change as a serious problem. >> it's not a situation that we don't have options, but we really need to get serious. >> robert wisenmiller chairs the california commission and is part of the team that put
6:03 pm
forth the assessment today. there's a tool called cal adapt where anyone can see environmental projections. for example, if greenhouse gases continue at the current rate, this is a simulation of our fiery future. >> we can direct, teach, provide seed money, but it's really up to the locals in many ways to deal with the impacts of climate change. >> john laird is the california secretary of natural resources. he says the report and cal adapt website was created for local governments so they can zone and build in ways that take future changes into account, changes like rising sea levels. according to the report, by the year 2100 sea levels in the bay area will rise between 2.4 feet and 4.5 feet. although if there is extensive arctic ice melt, it could be up to 9.8 feet. >> there will be many ideas that are coming out of this. for example, on sea level rise there will be people talking about what you do in the face of a rising sea if you live in a coastal community. >> now this year the global
6:04 pm
climate action summit will be in california, san francisco to be exact starting september 12th and california governor jerry brown will be there. >> so changing liability for wildfires, the governor and pg&e are working to do that. how does this report affect that debate? >> it certainly doesn't hurt pg&e's case for sure. a big part of pg&e's push for less liability is the argument that it just can't control these fires. they're just happening because of climate change and this new report does seem to support the theory that wildfires are just going to be more frequent, but where pg&e has forcibly put up equipment on people's property that makes these fires worse, it's unclear lawmakers will let them completely off the hook. is that that's going to be the gray area. >> that's what they'll -- >> that's going to be the gray area. >> that's what they'll be fighting about, either you can put something there and be responsible or not. the feds are helping b.a.r.t. with a pressing need by providing new money to beef up security. fema just awarded b.a.r.t. a grant of nearly $7 million. the money will help fund
6:05 pm
patrols on trains, better radio communications and upgrades to security cameras at stations. b.a.r.t. is trying to get all of its surveillance cameras converted from analog to digital. trans are once again going through the peak -- trains are once again going through the peak tunnels in san francisco. walls and drainage systems have been repaired. during the renovation system about two weeks ago a falling steel beam hit and killed a construction worker. he worked for a contractor with a history of safety violations that muni wasn't even aware of. now the head of sfmta, riskin, is coming under fire from san francisco mayor london breed after complaints from riders on citywide muni slowdowns and its driver shortage. >> what do you say to those who may have lost some confidence in your leadership? >> well, it's understandable, right? it was a very difficult time. >> reporter: you've admitted to making several mistakes, but do you have plans to step down?
6:06 pm
>> no, i don't. >> riskin vows to reduce delays in bus and train service in three months. he said the next big challenge is finishing the van ness improvement project. construction costs for new housing are going through the roof you might say in san francisco and as developers feel the pinch, they're having trouble getting their projects finished or even started. kpix5's phil matier on the latest twist in the persistent housing crunch. phil? >> reporter: that's right. if you look behind us, you see some of the high rises that have become so common in downtown san francisco. they call it luxury high rises and the people there can pretty much afford to pay whatever the price is and so can the developers, but that's not the same when it comes to affordable housing as we found out. let's take a look. it's a building boom the likes of which the city has not seen since the days of the gold rush, but a closer look shows that sights like this one in the mission where 117 units of housing was to be built or here
6:07 pm
near city hall where 300 apartments were to be built with a 1/4 of them being affordable housing are hitting a financial wall that is quickly becoming the new barrier to more badly needed housing. >> we had a project that made sense. >> reporter: that is, it made sense three years ago when city hall first approved the permits and before the bay area construction boom sent the cost of building these things through the roof. as developer eric tao explains -- >> we were predicting 3 to 5% increases per year per anum for construction costs. instead it was 10 to 15%, something we've never seen in all our 15 to 20 years of construction and development. >> shortage of labor and the inflated cost of material. icpresidenjim as lazarus explains, we are seeing it all across the bay area. >> we went from 50% unemployment in the depths of the recession eight years ago to not enough people. they're bringing in workers for construction from all over the west. >> reporter: according to a survey by the san francisco chronicle, there are currently
6:08 pm
6,700 units of housing under construction in the city. that's 1,000 more than there were a year ago and there's another 15,000 approved for building. it's a goldmine for the construction business, but financial quick sand for housing developers who have to cover the increases. >> this is a normal curve. the construction costs started going higher and faster than values are going up. so projects get stalled. >> rental housing is tougher to build. >> land plus construction plus profit, that's it. >> reporter: now a developer tells us he will be sticking in there and will try to redo this package and get his affordable housing up and running, but other developers tell us that no, it's just getting too expensive and they're starting to sell the projects as is. in downtown san francisco, phil matier, kpix5. back to you guys. with no legal limits it's hard to police stoned driving and the consequences can be deadly, the plan to target
6:09 pm
impaired drivers. >> no lyft drivers on this busy bay area street, why the ride share company is calling it off limits. >> a bay area couple's perfect day goes up in flames, how firefighters managed to turn this wedding disaster around. this is not a bed.

6:12 pm
until late this afternoon. kpix5's john ramos has a look at the house and the late change of heart. >> reporter: willow glen is one of the most desirable communities san jose has to offer. its tree lined streets and older custom homes right next to silicon valley have created the predictable effect. >> it does become extremely expensive now. >> reporter: modest homes here sell for well over $1 million. so it requires a pretty healthy income to move here, but bishop patrick mcgrath, leader of the catholic diocese of san jose, is close to retirement and reportedly selected a home here to live out his days. the price? $2.3million which created another predictable reaction. >> it's a little excessive. i mean have they ran this by their church members? >> the whole point of staying that route in life is a humble life and i understand you put in a lot of work and such like that, but, you know, it's
6:13 pm
supposed to be humble. $2.3million, that's -- >> reporter: the mls listing describings a 3,200 square foot tuscan estate with soaring ceilings, lush lawns and a spalike marble bathroom in the largest of its five bedrooms. >> one person, right? one person. he doesn't need a great big house, 2.3 million? >> reporter: but to be fair the 73-year-old bishop does lead a diocese of 640,000 parishioners and the church allows him to choose a place to retire to. he just happened to pick a spot where a fixer-upper costs $1 million. >> it's not extravagant. that's about the value of houses here. >> it seems like it's a lot, but who knows? if you put your whole life into something, maybe that's the way the company rewards you, a little better than a gold pocket watch. >> reporter: in san jose, john ramos, kpix5. >> just a moment ago bishop
6:14 pm
patrick mcgrath released a statement saying, "i failed to consider adequately the housing crisis in this valley and the struggles of so many families and communities in light of that crisis. i have heard from many on this topic and i decided i will not move house." the house will be sold and profits will go to charities housing. the bishop now plans to live in a parish rectory when he retires. one serious issue working out recreational marijuana, impaired drivers continue to present a challenge for law enforcement. kpix5's juliette goodrich on the group trying to tackle that issue. >> reporter: this was a first of its kind in the bay area, a marijuana traffic safety summit here in dublin with law enforcement, cannabis advocates and people in the legal system coming together to decide what is the best way to get impaired and stoned drivers off the road.
6:15 pm
the chp says since january 1st when recreational cannabis use became legal injuries related to people driving under the influence of marijuana has increased 102% and driving impaired arrests are also up. the sad reality hit home. >> recently we lost somebody else to distracted driving. we can't afford to lose anybody else, officer or just a motorist. >> reporter: that's one of the reasons the chp held a marijuana traffic safety summit bringing together people from law enforcement, the department of justice and members of the cannabis industry. >> the take-aways are training and education, not only for law enforcement officials, but for our judges, prosecutors and our community at large. >> it's complicated. >> reporter: jennifer newton is a traffic safety resource prosecutor with the da's office in colorado, a state that legalized recreational pot four years before california did. she spoke at the summit today. >> we talked a bit about the
6:16 pm
dangers of driving after using marijuana, what officers can look for in their investigations, how to tie that together with any toxicology results and then ultimately about the use in the courtroom. >> reporter: unlike alcohol, there is no legal limit for pot under california and field tests are oftentimes inadmissible in court. >> what we do not want to see it these chemical tests that try to put fixed numbers on whether people are impaired because it's more than a fixed number. >> reporter: all would agree today there needs to be more training and public awareness when it comes to cannabis impaired driving. >> our officers are trained to be drug recognition experts as well as more aware of people that are driving under the influence of drugs, but we're also learning that society still believes that you can smoke marijuana and drive and be perfectly fine. >> reporter: there was about 200 people at this summit today. it went from 8 a.m.
6:17 pm
to 5 p.m. the general public was also invited and they say this conversation will continue. there will be other summits. there's even a task force set up that meets quarterly. the next one will meet in sacramento in september. they say they'll continue this to make the roads safer and keep in mind it is against the law to have cannabis in your car just like an open container. in dublin, juliette goodrich, kpix5. one of san francisco's busiest streets will be a little less crowded thanks to a major change by one ride share company. kpix5's susie steimle on the stretch of street that's off limits to lyft drivers. susie? >> reporter: i'm on valencia street right near the intersection of 16th and 17th and if i open up my lyft app now, you'll see it's unable to pick me up. this little purple fence pops up. e when i try to pinpoint where i'm stand -- whenever i try to pinpoint where i'm standing, it sends me to one of the corners. the purple box is called a
6:18 pm
geofence and it means you might have to walk to get your ride. you've seen it a dozen times, uber and lyft drivers pulled over on the side of the roadblocking the bike lane. this is exactly the situation the san francisco bike coalition wants to prevent. >> the fewer illegal pickups and dropoffs that occur on a busy bike route, the safer people biking will be. >> reporter: after two years of requests lyft is changing its ways. the ride share company will start geofencing or creating a virtual perimeter around valencia street between 16th and 17th. if you click on the app, you'll notice you cannot get lyft to pick you up here. you have to walk to a side street. >> within the app they can see where you are on the map and tell you to go around the corner to pick up your ride instead. >> reporter: lyft launched this pilot in january. brian weedenmeyer, executive director of the san francisco bike coalition, pushed for the change and said it's already made valencia street safer. a lyft spokesperson tells kpix5
6:19 pm
in addition to the geofencing on valencia street between 16th and 17th , they're also geofencing and diverting pickups on chestnut street in the marina between fillmore and scott streets. lyft also diverts pickups around busy events like concerts and sporting events. brian says this is a great first step. next he wants to see drivers off their phones. >> currently uber and lyft's platform and apps encourage drivers to do just that. the next step we're looking for is limiting access to using apps while the cars are in motion. >> reporter: this is a dangerous area for cyclists. there have been 268 bike crashes on this section of valencia street over a four year period. also worth noting, uber is playing around with the idea of geofencing. it's in a pilot phase now. you can expect to see more boxes limiting where you can get picked up around the city

weekend. it was nasty thursday. it was bad friday morning. good to moderate. that's about as good as it will get because all the fires are still burning. they may get contained, but they're still burning pumping out a lot of smoke sitting over the entire west coast. foggy mornings continue. afternoons are 14 degrees cooler than average today continuing the next couple days. we will be milder and below average later this week. now to why this is happening. there's a low pressure area to our north giving us two things, a thicker marine layer and a strong onshore flow. both these will allow the flow from the ocean to continue to pile in not only into san francisco and the immediate shoreline, we're talking about inland locations because the marine layer is high enough to breach the hills blocking most inland locations from the bay. we will be cloudy in livermore, alamo, gilroy and north of santa rosa. it will burn back to the coast in the afternoon, but the marine influence is still there keeping temperatures 10 to 14 degrees cooler than average.
