>> building a better bay area, moving forward, finding solutions. this is abc7 news. liz: the future of our the futuf on the line. the crucial cop26 climate summit kicks off in lascaux, scotland. what is at stake and how the bay area could feel its impact. it is sunday, october 31. this is abc7 news live at 9:00, live on abc7, hulu live, and wherever you stream. i am liz kreutz. let's start with a quick check of the weather with meteorologist lisa argen. lisa: good morning. if you are out early, mist and drizzle, but that is behind us for the most part. still looking at cloudy skies, but there is a system offer we
9:02 am
will be tracking for your monday morning commute. the rest of the day, halloween number we have clouds to start with and temperatures in the mid 50's in san francisco and mt. view. 54 in santa cruz. about 60 should do it today. it will be a cool day. temperatures a bit low average, runners -- numbers running through the mid to upper 50's from santa rosa to concord, cooler than we were yesterday at this hour. that system has lifted north and out of your, leaving clouds in its wake. a mix of sun and clouds today. dry forecast for trick-or-treaters tonight. we track the hourly forecast of the evening in a bit and also the level one system that arrives tomorrow. liz: thanks. the u.n. climate summit in glasgow, scotland has formally opened, kicking off two weeks of negotiations by leaders from almost 200 countries on how to take action on climate change. many world leaders say this is a
9:03 am
moment of truth for the world, causing -- calling for urgent action to avoid a climate catastrophe. reena roy is live in glasgow this morning. a lot to be discussed. reena: good morning. that is absolutely right. this conference could make a big difference in the fight against climate change, but experts are warning the clock is ticking, and serious action must be taken now. the impacts of climate change are catastrophic. every corner of the globe is already being affected. scientists warn time is running out in the fight against it. >> it is scary to be moving too slowly, because we know climate change happens fast. reena: conference of the parties is an annual summit where countries work together soon combat climate change. but this year is especially critical. >> scientists and experts are
9:04 am
telling us we are fast approaching the point of no return in a literal sense. reena: on the table, phasing out coal, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and discussing the finances needed to do that. countries will need to agree on how to move forward and also review progress on the paris climate record signed at the 2015 summit to prevent the average global temperature fromm rising. but even if nations met their current target, the planet will still be on pace to see an average topper chair increase of 2.7 degrees celsius by the end of this century. >> human beings are responsible for this accelerated process of deterioration, and it will take us making basic choices to get us back on track. reena: the goal is to come out of the two week summit with a written agreement, but some are
9:05 am
skeptical that will happen with leading polluters like russia and china not in attendance. >> i am very worried, because they might go wrong, and we may not get the agreements we need. but i think it could be done. reena: president biden is scheduled to come to town tomorrow. he is expected to speak out the conference this week. live in glasgow, scotland, rena roy for abc7 news. liz: thank you for that. part of holding a better bay area focuses on our climate. so we are talking about how california lawmakers hope to make an impact at this years's climate change conference. joining us is state senator john laird from santa cruz, part of the california delegation heading to glasgow. thanks for being with us. first and foremost, what you hope the california delegation accomplishes during this trip? sen. laird: you're set was good because it pointed out that the
9:06 am
temperatures in the planning are getting higher, and we will have to deal with the results of that. the question is whether we keep them from being even higher, and that is the backdrop of the glasgow conference. i think the california legislative delegation is really anxious to let them know what we have done here, because here, we have set goals, and we are probably ahead of the other 50 states in what we have done, but there is so much more to do. we are not even doing enough in california, and i think we can let other people know what we are doing, but we can really learn. i have participated in conferences before, and we really hear what other countries and subnational's are doing, and there's a chance we can learn things and bring them back to california. liz: and for those who may not know, you're also the former secretary of the california natural resources agency in you recently joined the coastal covering -- conservancy board. speak of the specific work you have done in this space and in
9:07 am
what ways you have noticed the impacts of climate change right here in our state. sen. laird: part of my job as secretary for natural resources is to work with novato to save lake tahoe. we created a science group, and they told us that lake tahoe, at one point, was heating faster than any freshwater lake on the face of the earth. so it is really our job to try to figure out ways to mitigate against that. i also had calfire within the agency during eight years and was at the helm at the time of the fires in napa, sonoma and also in paradise. it was interesting, because there was a fire on the same footprint from outside calistoga to santa rosa in 1964 that there was in 2017. and in 1964, it took two and half days to mak from calistoga over by santa rosa.
9:08 am
then that fire a few years ago, it took roughly six hours. that is sort of a tribute to the changing conditions of the climate. liz: that does bring me to my next question. i wanted to ask about some of the things you are hoping to learn from other countries and other regions, specifically what are you hoping to learn in regards to wildfire mitigation. are there certain countries you will be speaking to them looking at for some guidance? sen. laird: yes. i think we will really look at places that are heavily forested. although california has chopp l desert lands as well. i offered a bill that said we will not just have what we do in one year in the budget be our plan, we will have a five year or 10 year plan. we will lay out goals for prescribed fire, controlled burns, also fuels management in forests and other places, and we will track it transparently.
9:09 am
we have said prescribed fire and fuels management. my question will be whether it is german forests or scandinavian forests or other places, what are you doing? are there things other than what we're doing in california that we should be learning from and doing in the same way? and are you doing what we are doing in the same way, or whether you're doing prescribed fire or fuels management around urban areas or in the far wilds -- those kind of questions we will talk about when we have a chance to get together in glasgow. liz: absolutely. i want to ask about governor newsom, because he operably cancel his trip to glasgow friday siding family obligations. how much do you think his absence will impact california's effectiveness at this conference? sen. laird: i did not ticket will change, mostly because he has set out a plan, and there is a chance that he will dissipate virtually. he has laid it out. and the lieutenant governor will
9:10 am
carry the lead for him. i think it would have been nice to have him there, but i totally understand. there are clearly some family things that are happening. but we will fly the flag for california with the lieutenant governor and the secretary of natural resources and epa and a number of legislators and be very present in bringing california there and bringing things back to california. liz: we certainly have a lot we can bring to the table. we are glad to know you will be there. thank you for joining us. we appreciate it. sen. laird: thank you. liz: the g20 summit is a wrapping up in rome at the same time. in a meeting with the turkish president today, president biden raised concerns about that country's possession of a russian missile system and some human rights issues. turkey's acquisition of the missile system is fiercely situation syria, afghanistan,ts
