Climate Crisis Emergency Doom Is Reducing San Francisco’s Fog!

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Um, whether climate change is mostly/solely man-caused, mostly/solely natural, or some combination, wouldn’t this be a good thing, since fog leads to crashes, one of the leading causes of deadly accidents?

Climate Change Decreasing Bay Area Fog

The Bay Area is known around the world for it’s classic fog pattern that rolls through the Golden Gate Gap and can bring much needed summertime cooling.

While we can usually expect that fog pattern to get going in June there’s been a decreasing amount of it over the past several decades. So before we dive into the data, what’s so important about that fog? Well, not only can it break a heat wave pattern with chilly air but it also increases humidity which helps to lower immediate fire danger. Ecosystems are also healthier and we can recover from wildfires much faster.

However, as our climate has changed during the past few decades there has been a noticeable drop in the amount of Summer fog moving through San Francisco. The data below shows over the past 100 years we’ve seen a -34.5% decrease in fog which equates to about 3 to 4 hour less fog per day. This is bringing lower humidity, higher wildfire risk and stressed ecosystems.

ZOMG, the climate changes? That never happened before fossil fueled vehicles. You’d think San Francisco would have more important things to worry about

Coordinated crime sprees forcing retailers to close stores, limit hours

Coordinated crime sprees in major cities in California, New York and elsewhere are forcing retailers to close stores and limit operating hours, as packs of shoplifters regularly make off with hundreds of dollars-worth in merchandise to be resold online, at street markets or returned for gift cards.

Amid a crime wave sweeping San Francisco, five Target store locations are reducing operating hours, closing at 6 p.m. instead of the usual 10 p.m., as managers seek to secure merchandise and employee safety, Forbes reported. Organized gangs brazenly steal branded items even with security present, as California raised the threshold for a felony charge from $450 to $950 in stolen goods.

For more than a month, Target has been experiencing “a significant and alarming” rise in theft and security incidents at San Francisco stores, a Target spokesman told Fox News. He cited similar decisions to reduce hours made by retailers in the Bay Area including H&M, Gap, Marshalls and Walgreens.

Walgreens has closed 17 locations in San Francisco over the last five years citing this sort of theft, the San Francisco Chronicle reported in May. Jason Cunningham, regional vice president for pharmacy and retail operations in California and Hawaii, said at a hearing at the time that theft in Walgreens stores in San Francisco is four times the average of stores elsewhere in the country.

On the bright side, most of these crime occur on foot or bike, rather than a fossil fueled getaway car! And fewer hours, fewer employees, and fewer stores means less fossil fueled traffic to the stores!
