see this continuing in the future at some point the stimulus money is going to run out and then the rubber really hits the road where people have to make decisions about. okay. what do i what do i want to do? so dan what are your thoughts about that? well, you make great points larry. this is a seller's market for the moment if you're a worker and you're selling a service, i hear people from people all the time you say they just can't find employees. he wants to to come do these different jobs. it will not last forever the pendulum always swings back and forth things will tighten up once again as the economy changes and it did reset priorities. a lot of people just decided. you know what i don't want to spend my life's energy and my time doing this particular job and we'll find something. but it's causing some real challenges for businesses and our economy as a whole. yeah. well spencer, i mean the restaurant business has been hit so hard. it's probably people don't think about how hard it is, you know to be a cook in the back, you know or a waiter or waitress stressful and if you're cooking,

derogatory comments gruden made in those emails about goodell a league's both spokesperson called the allegations meritless. i don't know exactly outside of just getting some sort of a financial settlement what john gruden's goal is here, but i can imagine that you know if you're going to file this lawsuit, that means that you're going to open up the discovery process. 650,000 emails that are out there and there's probably a lot of people around the nfl. they're like, we do not want any of that out there. what do you want to make this go away, but he's not going to get another coaching job. he's not going to be on tv. i mean he's active at this point no and speaking of trying to distract which is what he's accusing the nfl of doing he's doing a little of that himself by filing this lawsuit. you know, he apologized and still did say some pretty objectionable things your email and you know, what's the what's the point? i don't know if he can rehabilitate his reputation. yeah might be tough at this point. yeah, i mean orchestrated campaign. i mean that's like you said that's he's not trying to prove that. he's trying to get some money. all right. this will no doubt frustrate some of you out there today

santa arrived at stoneridge shopping center in pleasanton and the stanford shopping mall two weeks before thanksgiving. it seems the start of the christmas season comes earlier and earlier. we saw holiday commercials before halloween this year some don't mind this at all, seeing santa and all the holiday fair makes them feel excited and happy for others. the holidays can be a time of sadness and stress. so not sure what you think but know i tend to like christmas spencer, so i don't mind, you know, i think the earlier the better. i feel the same way and after what we've all been through the last couple of years that you know, i'll take a little early christmas cheer. meanwhile santa's out there doing a little self-promotion. well, the elves are left back there doing all the work what's going on here? no shortage of jobs up in the north pole. well, you know, i i agree with both of you. although i'm a bit of a purist i don't i love the holiday season. i don't tend to turn to christmas until after thanksgiving in terms of watching christmas movies. that kind of stuff but we've already started doing a little bit of shopping.
4:44 pm
so being out in the shopping centers and stuff. you know, it's nice to see santa it doesn't i think it's fine. i think it's great. i just i i kind of focus on thanksgiving first. i'll tell you what though if you're a parent and you want a photo of your kid with santa now's the time because if you wait a few weeks that they know the line just backs up. it's a good point get get santa before thanksgiving. that's the time. i'm gonna get in line. saturday all right down. see you there calendar distancing. that's what they're doing. i'll be santa by the way. just you know that yeah, that probably is too scary kids.

un climate summit in glasgow scotland negotiators blew past. today's deadline failing to reach an agreement after two weeks of talks participants are still trying to find common ground on the phasing out of coal and fossil fuel subsidies as well as greenhouse gas emissions as well as financial help for poor countries leaders, though are optimistic that an agreement on a final draft report will come by tomorrow as that summit puts more attention on those greenhouse gases. there's a need to see exactly where those gas is coming from. yeah a program that started here in california can detect one of the most damaging pollutants and it consumed be going global spencer is back with details spencer okay christian, this is actually a way of seeing greenhouse gases that are escaping from sites on the ground. and mapping where they are coming from and the potentially stopping the worst releases. if you're trying to track
4:48 pm
destructive climate pollution from the skies above california first, you need to be able to see it and with technology developed at the nasa jet propulsion lab in pasadena. the images are the closest thing to environmental technicolor plumes of escaping methane gas captured during aerial surveys done in partnership with the california air resources board. so that was called a california methane survey that we conducted with nasa aircraft back in 2016 and 2017. and in that program is since expanded to track methane release riley duren and his colleagues at jpl employed a device called an airborne visible infrared imaging spectrometer. it detects signatures in the atmosphere associated with methane that are invisible to the naked eye including major releases from so-called super emitters. it's not limited the oil and gas you see it full mines. we see it with agriculture landfills wastewater treatment plants refineries. recently state regulators up to the ante letting industries know
4:49 pm
they were launching a new aerial survey with the help of collaborators from arizona state and asking them to follow up from the ground and about 60% of all the plumes was something that they could they could fix right there on the spot when they went out and found it the flights were a groundbreaking turn in the fight against greenhouse gases, but the work of keeping them going is challenging so researchers have now begun an equally ambitious project. called carbon mapper to expand the system into space the project includes plans for a satellite launch in roughly two years. the goal is a space-based imaging system that would track methane and co2 similar to the way nasa jpl uses satellites like sentin. 6 to track sea surface height and ocean temperatures riley duran is leading carbon mapper as a non-profit to fund the first satellites. so the idea behind carbon mappers to take this nasative develop technology and to scale it up and fly on a constellation satellites now bloomberg
4:50 pm
philanthropies has added a 25 million dollar grant to help accelerate carbon mappers work, ultimately the data it generates would be available on a new open. was platform helping governments like california and nations around the world tackle greenhouse gases. so you really are going to need all these different methods and we really do live in a very exciting time. and exciting indeed an experts say the mapping is very effective because if you can spot and fix the worst super emitters, you can make a significant dent in the overall percentage of methane releases. now, let's take a look at what's going on here at the earth's surface weather-wise overnight. we'll see some high clouds passing through and and a few areas of low clouds. i will develop as well. but tomorrow will be another bright sunny and mild today much like today overnight low temperatures as clouds increase a bit will be mainly in the upper 40s and the inland valleys right around the bayshore. and on the coast lows will drop into the low 50s highs tomorrow much like today. we'll see mid-60s maybe even higher than that on the coast
4:51 pm
low 70s near the bay and low to mid 70s in most inland communities. and here's the accuweather 7-day forecast tomorrow and sunday will both be sunny and mild certainly milder than average for this time of the year. we'll see a little bit of a drop in temperatures on monday as clouds increase a bit then a sharper drop as we go into midweek and late week next week kristin. hi. thank you for the forecast and for that awesome greenhouse gas technology story. all right, the chabot space and science center in the oakland hills is reopening now after being closed for a whole year and a half during the closure. chabot has been undergoing some renovations abc 7 news was there when officials cut the ribbon debuting the new nasa ames visitor center invited guest we're able to check out items from space research including spacesuits and experimental heat shield technology. the exhibition is part of a larger. ownership between nasa's ames research center in silicon valley and chabot space and science center to re-envision
