tomorrow morning. in recent years, there has been a move to end the practice. joining us to talk about this is dr. evans from the american academy of sleep medicine. thank you for being here. it seems there is a debate over the pros and cons of state -- daylight savings time. what are the pros and cons? >> the academy things we should end this practice. it is archaic now. i do not know a single person who likes continuing to switch our clocks back and forth and we know that there are significant health consequences associated with doing this twice a year. liz: what time should we adopt in your opinion? would it be daylight saving time or standard time? >> that is a great question. that is at the heart of why we continue to do this because there is a little bit of debate behind it. at the american academy of sleep medicine, we support standard time for the time that we are moving to, as the clock that we adopt for the long run because
6:41 am
it best aligns with body time. our bodies have an internal clock called a circadian rhythm and the circadian rhythm adapts to our exposure to light and darkness and by setting our social clocks missed time relative to body clocks, it can cause sleep disruption and what we called circadian misalignment. liz: at the same time, the other side of this, people who say daylight savings time will lead to less traffic deaths, save energy, and there are people who say we love that it stays light later. how do you respond? >> i think the problem is that we do daylight savings time in the summer and in the summer, we have a lot more light in general. if you really think about what would happen if we turn to daylight saving time year-round, and san francisco we would not have sunrise until 8:00 in the morning in december and that would make it very hard for many people to wake up. in fact, --
6:42 am
liz: it seems like we just lost the connection with dr. evans. that was great information. hopefully we will have to let her know that we lost that connection unfortunately. there is that debate. we talk about it every time it happens. let's get a check outside. do you have an opinion? lisa: you cannot ask me about sleep.

technology we have been tracking for several years is now on display for the world at the cop 26 summit. it was developed at uc berkeley by a researcher who believes it could be a powerful tool in the fight against climate change. dan ashley has the story. dan: for a university of california researcher, you can say the fight against climate change began on rooftops like the observatory as part of a large network of sensors that blanket the east bay and parts of san francisco. over much of the last decade, he has tracked levels of carbon dioxide along major bay area highways and local neighborhoods. it is the kind of data that could help cities monitor the aggressive carbon reduction goals being set out at the cop26 conference. >> especially cities are making big claims and ambitious targets, and we want to help them understand that if they are on track.
6:53 am
dan: to grab the attention of those potential partners, he began installing the sensors where they could get noticed by a worldwide audience, the city of glasgow itself. >> we started in august deploying the sensors and so we have had 10 operating since the first of august so we have a three month record. dan: they are able to detect trends on a micro scale. recently, his team was able to document the dramatic drop in co2 emissions when bay area roads emptied out during the initial covid shelter-in-place, seen in green. he says the system is now up and running in los angeles as well with talks underway on the east coast and with at least one city in the u.k.. >> and it is really fabulous to see it coming to fruition in ways that will be helpful to cities as they try to manage greenhouse gas emissions. dan: and perhaps play an important role in documenting our progress in the worldwide campaign against climate change. dan ashley, abc 7 news.

liz: even after cop 26 ends, the sensor system will remain in glasgow monitoring greenhouse gases as well as other pollutants. also, a fun coincidence. we have a sensor located across from our studio along the from our studio along the embarcadero. when you hear the word healthy it always feels a little out of reach. but it's all about the baby steps. maybe it's a jump or eating something green. or taking mom to get that vaccine. ♪ healthier means bringing stuff to the folks ♪ ♪ that really need it. ♪ ♪ like help at 2 am or care that's right at home. ♪ ♪ believe it. ♪ ♪ and caring for them all means ♪ ♪ we're doing healthier right. ♪ ♪ so, let's do it all together people, ♪ ♪ 'cause this is what healthier looks like. ♪
