Friday Blog Roundup

Al Gore’s appearance on Capitol Hill prompted several blog posts. David Roberts at Gristmill liveblogged Gore’s testimony in both the House and the Senate; he and Mike Dunford at The Questionable Authority both devoted blog posts to a memorable encounter between Gore and Senator Inhofe, too.  Kevin Vranes at Prometheus weighed in on Gore’s specific proposals and summarized exchanges between Gore and various Senators.

When the sad news about Elizabeth Edwards’ cancer was reported, Orac at Respectful Insolence and Craig Hildreth at The Cheerful Oncologist were quick to provide additional medical context.

In addition:

PZ Myers at Pharyngula and Revere at Effect Measure have concerns about releasing transgenic malaria-resistant mosquitoes as a means of combating malaria.
