strong and twice as long and that will give them more of an occasion of the earthquake we would have. 10 percent isn't really the threshold of damage. when you triple it you cross that line. it's much more damage in earthquake. >> i want to thank you, harvey, thanks pat for . >> i love that i was in four plus years a a rent control tenant, and it might be normal because the tenant will -- for the longest, i was applying for b.m.r. rental, but i would be in the lottery and never be like 307 or 310. i pretty much had kind of given
9:01 am
up on that, and had to leave san francisco. i found out about the san francisco mayor's office of housing about two or three years ago, and i originally did home counseling with someone, but then, my certificate expired, and one of my friends jamie, she was actually interested in purchasing a unit. i told her about the housing program, the mayor's office, and i told her hey, you've got to do the six hour counseling and the 12 hour training. she said no, i want you to go with me. and then, the very next day that i went to the session, i notice this unit at 616 harrison became available, b.m.i. i was like wow, this could potentially work. housing purchases through the b.m.r. program with the sf mayor's office of housing, they
9:02 am
are all lotteries, and for this one, i did win the lottery. there were three people that applied, and they pulled my number first. i won, despite the luck i'd had with the program in the last couple years. things are finally breaking my way. when i first saw the unit, even though i knew it was less than ideal conditions, and it was very junky, i could see what this place could be. it's slowly beginning to feel like home. i can definitely -- you know, once i got it painted and slowly getting my custom furniture to fit this unit because it's a specialized unit, and all the units are microinterms of being very small. this unit in terms of adaptive, in terms of having a murphy bed, using the walls and ceiling, getting as much space as i can. it's slowly becoming home for
9:03 am
me. it is great that san francisco has this program to address, let's say, the housing crisis that exists here in the bay area. it will slowly become home, and i am appreciative that it is a bright spot in an otherwise >> hi. my name is carmen chiu, san francisco's elected assessor. when i meet with seniors in the community, they're thinking about the future. some want to down size or move to a new neighborhood that's closer to family, but they also worry that making such a change will increase their property taxes.
9:04 am
that's why i want to share with you a property tax saving program called proposition 60. so how does this work? prop 60 was passed in 1986 to allow seniors who are 55 years and older to keep their prop 13 value, even when they move into a new home. under prop 13 law, property growth is limited to 2% growth a year. but when ownership changes the law requires that we reassess the value to new market value. compared to your existing home, which was benefited from the -- which has benefited from the prop 13 growth limit on taxable value, the new limit on the replacement home would likely be higher. that's where prop 60 comes in. prop 60 recognizes that seniors on fixed income may not be able to afford higher taxes so it allows them to carryover their existing prop 13 value to their
9:05 am
new home which means seniors can continue to pay their prop 13 tax values as if they had never moved. remember, the prop 60 is a one time tax benefit, and the property value must be equal to or below around your replacement home. if you plan to purchase your new home before selling your existing home, please make sure that your new home is at the same price or cheaper than your existing home. this means that if your existing home is worth $1 million in market value, your new home must be $1 million or below. if you're looking to purchase and sell within a year, were you nur home must not be at a value that is worth more than 105% of your exist egging home. which means if you sell your
9:06 am
old home for $1 million, and you buy a home within one year, your new home should not be worth more than $1.15 million. if you sell your existing home at $1 million and buy a replacement between year one and two, it should be no more than $1.1 million. know that your ability to participate in this program expires after two years. you will not be able to receive prop 60 tax benefits if you cannot make the purchase within two years. so benefit from this tax savings program, you have to apply. just download the prop 60 form from our website and submit it to our office. for more, visit our website,,

>> third thursdays at the commons is a monthly event series to really activate krisk centkrisk -- civic center, fulton mall, and other locations through social operation. >> in 2016, an initiative called the civic center progress initiative was launched, it was launched by a bunch of city agencies and community partners, so they really had to figure out how to program these places on a more frequent basis. i'm with the civic center

great civic faces in america. when you look from the polk street steps, and you look all the way down the plaza, down market street, daniel burns' design, this was meant to be this way. it's really special. >> the city approached us off the grid to provide food and beverages at the event as kind of the core anchor to encourage people who leave a reason to stay. >> it's really vibrant. it's really great, just people walking around having a good time. >> this formula is great food, interesting music, and then, we wanted to have something a little more, so we partnered with noise pop, and they brought in some really fun games. we have skeeball, we also have roller skating

lessons, and we've got a roller skating rink. >> if you're a passion jail skeeball player like me, and you're deciding whether you're just going to roll the ball up the middle or take a bank shot. >> our goal is to come out and have fun with their neighbors, but our goal is to really see in the comments that it's a place where people want to hold their own public event. >> i think this is a perfect example of all these people working together. everybody's kind of come together to provide this support and services that they can to activate this area. >> there's no one agency or organization that really can make this space come alive on its own, and it's really through the collective will,
9:11 am
not just of the public sector, but both the public and our business partnerships, our nonprofits partnerships, you know, neighborhood activists. >> i really like it. it's, like, a great way to get people to find out about local things, cuisine, like, it's really great. >> it's a really good environment, really welcoming. like, we're having a great time. >> we want to inspire other people to do this, just using a part of the plaza, and it's also a good way to introduce people if they're having a large scale event or small scale event, we'll direct you to the right people at the commons so you can get your event planned. >> being a san francisco based company, it was really important to connect and engage with san franciscans.
9:12 am
>> how great is it to come out from city hall and enjoy great music, and be able to enjoy a comtail, maybe throw a bocci ball or skee ball. i find third thursdays to be really reinrig rat reinriggating for me. >> whether you're in the city hall or financial district or anywhere, just come on down on third thursdays and enjoy the music, enjoy an adult beverage, enjoy the skee ball; enjoy an adult playground, if you

work with our like underground writers. they're just coming at publishing and at being a writer from this underground way. coming in to the library is awesome. very good for the library to show this writing community that they are welcome. at first, people were like, you want me to read at the library, really? things like that. >> as a documentary, there are interviews -- [inaudible] >> radar readings are focused on clear culture. strayed all others might write about gay authors. gay authors might write about universal experiences. the host creates a welcoming environment for everybody. there is no cultural barrier to entry. >> the demographic of people who
9:16 am
come will match the demographic of the reader. it is very simple. if we want more people of color, you book more people of color. you want more women, your book more women. kind of like that. it gets mixed up a little bit. in general, we kind of have a core group of people who come every month. their ages and very. we definitely have some folks who are straight. >> the loyal audience has allowed michelle to take more chances with the monthly lineup. established authors bring in an older audience. younker authors bring in their friends from the community who might be bringing in an older author. >> raider has provided a stage

at the end of the reading, everyone is happy. ♪ >> hi. welcome to san francisco. stay safe and exploring how you can stay in your home safely after an earthquake. let's look at common earthquake myths. >> we are here at the urban center on mission street in san francisco. we have 3 guest today. we have david constructional engineer and bill harvey. i want to talk about urban myths. what do you think about earthquakes, can you tell if they are coming in
9:20 am
advance? >> he's sleeping during those earthquakes? >> have you noticed him take any special? >> no. he sleeps right through them. there is no truth that i'm aware of with harvey that dogs are aware of an impending earthquake. >> you hear the myth all the time. suppose the dog helps you get up, is it going to help you do something >> i hear they are aware of small vibrations. but yes, i read extensively that dogs cannot realize earthquakes. >> today is a spectacular day in san francisco and sometimes people would say this is earthquake weather. is this earthquake weather? >> no. not that i have heard of. no such thing. >> there is no such thing.
9:21 am
>> we are talking about the weather in a daily or weekly cycle. there is no relationship. i have heard it's hot or cold weather or rain. i'm not sure which is the myth. >> how about time of day? >> yes. it happens when it's least convenient. when it happens people say we were lucky and when they don't. it's terrible timing. it's never a good time for an earthquake. >> but we are going to have one. >> how about the ground swallowing people into the ground? >> like the earth that collapsed? it's not like the tv shows.
9:22 am
>> the earth does move and it bumps up and you get a ground fracture but it's not something that opens up and sucks you up into haddes. >> it's not going anywhere. we are going to have a lot of damage, but this myth that california is going to the ocean is not real. >> southern california is moving north. it's coming up from the south to the north. >> you would have to invest the million year cycle, not weeks or years. maybe millions of years from now, part of los angeles will be in the bay area. >> for better or worse. >> yes. >> this is a tough question.
9:23 am
>> those other ones weren't tough. >> this is a really easy challenge. are the smaller ones less stress? >> yes. the amount released in small earthquakes is that they are so small in you need many of those. >> i think would you probably have to have maybe hundreds of magnitude earthquakes of 4.7. >> so small earthquakes are not making our lives better in the future? >> not anyway that you can count on. >> i have heard that buildings in san francisco are on rollers and isolated? >> it's not true. it's a
9:24 am
conventional foundation like almost all the circumstances buildings in san francisco. >> the trans-america was built way before. it's a pretty conventional foundation design. >> i have heard about this thing called the triangle of life and up you are supposed to go to the edge of your bed to save yourself. is there anything of value to that ? >> yes, if you are in your room. you should drop, cover and hold onto something. if you are in school, same thing, kitchen same thing. if you happen to be in your bed, and you rollover your bed, it's not a bad place to be. >> the reality is when we have a major earthquake the ground shaking so pronounced that you are not going to be able to get up and go anywhere. you are
9:25 am
pretty much staying where you are when that earthquake hits. you are not going to be able to stand up and run with gravity. >> you want to get under the door frame but you are not moving to great distances. >> where can i buy a richter scale? >> mr. richter is selling it. we are going to put a plug in for cold hardware. they are not available. it's a rather complex. >> in fact we don't even use the richter scale anymore. we use a moment magnitude. the richter scale was early technology. >> probably a myth that i hear most often is my building is just fine in the loma prieta earthquake so everything is fine. is that true ?
9:26 am
>> loma prieta was different. the ground acceleration here was quite moderate and the duration was moderate. so anyone that believes they survived a big earthquake and their building has been tested is sadly mistaken. >> we are planning for the bigger earthquake closer to san francisco and a fault totally independent. >> much stronger than the loma prieta earthquake. >> so people who were here in '89 they should say 3 times as strong and twice as long and that will give them more of an occasion of the earthquake we would have. 10 percent isn't really the threshold of damage.
9:27 am
when you triple it you cross that line. it's much more damage in earthquake. >> i want to thank you, harvey, thanks pat for >> good afternoon, everyone. i am the mayor of the city and county of san francisco and i am here to welcome mayors from all over the country, including the u.s. conference of mayors on the centre for climate and energy solutions, to this great city. we are all gathered here today for a common cause. of taking meaningful action to combat climate change. as we all no kak this is an issue that is bigger than one of our cities, one of our regions and this country. climate change is the defining issue of our time. and the choices we make today, the commitment we can agree on
9:28 am
and are sustained cooperation, will determine whether or not we rise to the challenge. i am proud that san francisco is one of 150 cities that took part in the survey conducted by the alliance for a sustainable future. writing climate change takes all of our cities working together to share information, practices and ideas so we can come to -- come up with effective solutions that will protect our environment for generations to come. and san francisco, we are truly proud of the work we have been doing for years it for years to implement sustainable policies that work while growing our economy. since 1990, we reduce the greenhouse gas emissions by 30% and cut our landfill disposal in half, all while growing our economy by 111%. to do this, which champion zero waste policy, advanced clean
9:29 am
energy initiatives, reduced emissions from public transportation and our home to some of the most sustainable buildings in the world. but we are not stopping there peerk we are adopting policies to meet our goal of being carbon neutral by 2050. by the year 2013, we have committed to cutting our landfill waste -- waste in half, to carbon icing all of our new buildings, and achieving -- by the year 2013 -- 30, we want to be more sustainable. we can achieve this by working across our borders as one a global community, to push for strong environmental protections together, we have the ability to create a cleaner and greener sustainable future for generations to come and as we move forward this week, san francisco, as you know, will be
9:30 am
hosting the global climate action summit. i'm so excited that jerry brown has chosen the city and county of san francisco, we have been a leader in the effort to combat climate change. as we bring people from not only all over the united states, but all over the world to san francisco, we will continue to push the envelope and demand action. the whole point of this climate summit his action. it is about coming up with solutions. san francisco, is much as we live in a bubble, we can't do it alone. we need everyone here and the leaders of many of these great cities who are joining us today will help us lead the way. with that's, i would like to introduce the president of the u.s. conference of mayors, from columbia, south carolina, mayor benjamin doshi has been a great

9:32 am
[cheers and applause]
9:33 am
>> the united states conference of mayors has long been a proponent of need to address climate change. mayors have been on the front lines, taking action on climate protection efforts and in many cases, launched local energy efficiency programs to reduce our carbon footprint in american cities. the president's decision to withdraw from the paris agreement was not only shortsighted, it was not representative of our nation process leaders and their communities. the fact is, the nations of mayors have never waited on washington, d.c. to act. you will see, in the next weeks and months and years ahead, mayors continuing to use our collective power to lead the nation on this critical issue, regardless of what happens at the national level. at the same time, it is critical we have a federal government that takes climate protection seriously and is willing to step up the two the plate to deal with this national and global
9:34 am
issue. we do call on the administration and on congress to reengage and work with us as we tackle this incredibly challenging issue. our efforts are strengthened by the support of strong partners. that is why we've formed an alliance with sustainable future to help us engage with the business community. the alliance's purpose is to bring mayors and businesses together to identify ways we can work together to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, build more resilient communities and create a more sustainable future we had a great session earlier this morning. we heard about what cities and business communities are doing together to reduce our carbon footprint. we discuss how this best practices could be replicated throughout the united states. today, the alliance is releasing a new survey of which cities are doing to advance climate solutions and to meet the challenges ahead. the report demonstrates cities
9:35 am
of all sizes are committed to action. in fact, we have 75 smaller cities, those less than 100,000 citizens respond to the survey. this demonstrates there is broad-based support in urban america, suburban america and rural america up for action, if we have access to the right tools and strategies. shows that climate change impacts all of our communities. collectively, we are making a significant difference. right now, our nation needs thoughtful leaders who care about the environment and care about the world that we have inherited from our ancestors. at you care deeply about their world we are passing on to our children. you need to look no further than america's mayors for this leadership. mayors get things done. fighting climate change is no exception to that rule. i would like to ask my friend, a fantastic leader, the chair of the alliance for sustainable future top our salt lake city
9:36 am
mayor to unveil the major findings from our reports. mayor? [applause] >> thank you. thank you, mayor benjamin. i wanted to give you a few brief highlights from the survey. this is the second year we have conducted this research. with this work, our plan is to continue to monitor the progress so -- cities are making towards achieving their climate change goals and to share this information across the country. we are confident this information exchange will identify ways cities and businesses can match up with one another so that policy and programs can be replicated quickly and efficiently. we need to learn from each other and identify resources to help each other achieve our goals.
9:37 am
on the reasons why are abundantly clear. as you can see from the answers of a new question, we asked this year, has your city experience impacts of climate change in the last five years? and the answer is no surprise. ninety-five% -- 95% of the cities said yes. right here in california, you can see the impact most directly through devastating wildfires and droughts, issues impacting my city as well. it is also important to note that cities are not just experiencing one impact of climate change. they are experiencing several changes all at once.
9:38 am
so what are we doing about it? our survey found that more than 70% of the cities have energy efficiency policies for new and existing municipal buildings and more than half have established energy-efficient -- energy efficiency policies for new and existing commercial and residential buildings. in the area of transportation, nearly 60% of city governments have a green vehicle purchasing policies with an additional 26% considering such action. cities have tremendous purchasing power. with cities purchasing over 13,000 vehicles annually, while gas and diesel vehicle purchases are still prevalent, you can see that with these policies in
9:39 am
place, a real shift is not only possible, but is underway. besides municipal fleets cap cities also have options for their residents. with 94% of city respondents having best transit and 92% bike lane policies with implementation. this scrap -- of this scratches the surface of our findings and i encourage you to take a closer look at the survey and thank you very much for being here today. [applause] >> now i would like to introduce mayor john mitchell, the mayor of new bedford, massachusetts for some remarks. >> thank you, mr president. good afternoon everybody.
9:40 am
i want to thank mayor benjamin for your leadership in the space you are one of the mayors he pushed very hard for all the mayors to sign up to the 100% renewable pledge. i want to commend jackie for her leadership as well in promoting this report and making this happen. everyone should take a close look at it's contents and spread the word. because it is a reminder of two things. that mayors are the big problems facing america and facing the world, americas mayors are meeting the challenge. secondly, those challenges are very real. i want to thank tom cochrane executive director, for being in the space for a long time before it was popular to be that way for america's mayors and the staff is well. america's mayors clock by the very nature of their job, don't have to remove themselves from
9:41 am
the abstract and get real. we are where the rubber hits the road and every respect. and it is true of climate change in our particular case, new bedford is the biggest commercial fishing porridge in the united states. we see, over time, in the fish that come in. a few years ago we are one of the biggest lobster ports in the world his. we are no longer that because the water has gotten warmer at those lobsters back even though they have small legs, have migrated north. they are no longer around in southern new england. it is one example. i see our beaches where -- which are not nearly the size of what they once worked when i was a kid. and we see what happens this week. i just wanted to throw this out there as food for thought about the kinds of things that mayors deal with. mayors on the east coast of the united states have to be mindful of hurricanes. mayors from miami all the way to new bedford.
9:42 am
and this week i was asked on an am station, what about the storm , florence that is in the middle of the atlantic? i said, you know, we are keeping an eye on it. we always do. i should probably take a closer look. i had my team take a closer look at it and i did my own google research. i found a washington post case. this is three days ago that said that the storm, florence, where was the atlantic three days ago was in a place where no storm had hit the united states since 1851. out of 67 identified storms in that time. sixty-seven, not a single one hit the united states. the folks in the carolinas are about to learn clock you will shortly -- and fortune experience in a few days, it will hit the east coast. so the aberrations are becoming the norm.
9:43 am
and we see it all the time. that is why a report like this helps us focus on not only what we can do to prevent the problems today, but also, ten years from now, 20 years from now, 50 years from now. the survey reported that cities spend $1.6 billion annually on electricity, which represents a significant amount of purchasing power and opportunity for cities , as mayor benjamin was alluding to, catch a loop -- use collective influence to make change. so we do. think do it in columbia and they don't salt lake city and across america. fifty-four% of the cities have renewable energy goals another 80% are considering setting a goal. these goals have made real results in cities. they have reduced our electric consumption considerably from fossil fuels. in our particular case, we are at 71% renewable.
9:44 am
there are eight cities in america who have hit 100% and more that are rapidly approaching. sixty-five% pure care for municipal operations. and they derives the vast majority of their needs through renewable sources. i will add these other data points, 37% of cities have set communitywide renewable energy goals with another 19% considering it at 51% of cities have policies or programs that help citizens and businesses cues renewable energy options. these numbers are going to grow in part because of the idea sharing mechanism that is the u.s. conference of mayors. we talked to one another and share ideas. again, this is another place where we are sitting dorsett single standard. as mayor benjamin mentioned, we do not wait for the federal government to act. thank you, everybody. [applause]
9:45 am
>> thank you, mayor mitchell. i will invite the trustee of the u.s. conference of mayors and the mayor mayor of des moines, iowa. >> mayor benjamin, all mayors, we are proud to be her as a mayor of san francisco said. it is a convening of people who are elected, and others to talk about the future of this planet and talk about the future of this country and talk about it from a perspective that is local quite frankly, for all of us, remembered some of the work -- and a look at tom cochrane back here and remembering being in copenhagen. boy, we had some great hopes and thoughts and hopeful outcomes that were going to happen as a result of that convening. but we all know that not
9:46 am
everything happens that we wanted to have happen. i will tell you that it is local government leaders like the people that are here before you today whose voices jumped out. after that occasion, all the way to parents, we had to show not only in the united states that local government that this is where stuff happens. this is where the consequences of actions and inactions on climate change actually manifest themselves. someplace, somewhere. it is not just the mayors here, it is a mayors around the world. i know that we continue, through the conference of mayors, to speak with other mayors around the world and i believe that it is those mayors at the local levels that spoke out and gave the courage to the heads of state to vote for and accept the paris climate agreements. in spite of the fact that there is debate as to whether the united states is still in, i
9:47 am
want you to know that there is over 500 mayors that have said we are still in. we are still part of this wasp was to go along with thousands of other mayors around the world , as we celebrate that moment in knowing that this is also where it happens. this is where we will have to take the actions that are necessary to meet those paris goals. with that, i will say that in des moines, iowa, we sit in the middle of the country and you always wonder, what are they doing here? there is no sea level rise and there's probably not a hurricane there, but you should have been in joint -- des moines on june 30th this year, you would've had a nice day up until about 9:00 and then it started raining by about 1230, there was areas
9:48 am
in des moines that received over 10 inches of rain and three and a half hours port i have to tell you, that is like a monsoon. out in the middle of the plains in iowa and the cornfields in the streams on the rivers, they filled up really fast. and those are becoming more normal. we have to decide how we will work to do it and how we will achieve our goals. i will tell you, it is not only those of us at the local government level, but it is partnering with our businesses, with our residents that are in each and every one of our communities in making a plan and working for a plan and often, those are led by the city. in our case, one of the great accomplishments that has happened in iowa and in des moines, art -- our disc attributed -- our distributed energy provider. started in 2004 when they had
9:49 am
two% of their power created by renewables. today, it was just verified by the iowa utility commission, at the end of 2017, mid american energy, through wind, has stepped up now to 50.8% of their energy that they produce is by renewables. they have also committed -- they have two new projects going along that will boost their investment and went into. as a look at my partner over here from salt lake city, by over $14 billion. by 2020, we are hoping that we will effectually create 100% of the energy produced by mid american energy in iowa through their sources in the energy they
9:50 am
provide that will be renewable. that is a kind of gold that we need to reach. that is a kind of partners we need to have. let's hope we can accomplish it and maintain and retain this planet for all of our future generations. thanks.
