Gore on C-Span Thread [3rd UPDATE]
I forgot to mention it here but today Al Gore testifies before House and Senate committees, a 1-man panel on global warming. I won't get to watch it until replays tonight. But if you saw/heard anything how do you think he did? I'll post links to coverage here when I find it so come back and refresh later.

[UPDATE: David Roberts at Gristmill live-blogged the House hearing and has some great quotes and descriptions.

UPDATE 2: At Intersection, Chris Mooney (author of The Republican War on Science) who has not been shy about criticizing Gore when he thinks he's overstated, says that Al's performance earlier today was "stirring."

UPDATE 3: Roberts says Gore isn't doing nearly as good a job in the Senate as he did in the House. And James "global-warming-is-a-hoax" Inhofe is making this personal about Gore's own energy usage, etc. So, sadly my prediction is the only encounter that will make the news is Inhofe asking Gore if he will pledge not to use more energy than the average house... Why is there always one asshole to ruin everything? Is that some kind of impenetrable cosmic math?]
