[Read Sunday night’s preview here.]

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.
