10:10 Just about to start. You can follow tweets at thephoenixsun.

10:15: Gore, Chu, et al. take the stage. John Podesta (CAP) makes opening marks. “Clean energy infrastructure works best when it works together.” EVs, solar, got to do everything at the same time. Mentions a green bank to put money into this effort.

10:25: Harry Reid: These problems didn’t happen overnight and won’t be solved quickly. But time to make a start. Schwartenegger won’t be attending, mother-in-law Eunice Kennedy Shriver verry ill.

Introduces Al Gore.

OK, that didn’t quite work out technically as planned.

I had thought my tweets would also show up here, but apparently not. Sorry about that.

All my tweets are available for your viewing pleasure, here.

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
