Grist:  Remember how Gore wanted to have the U.S. Live Earth concert in Washington, D.C., on the National Mall? And then Inhofe was all "it's partisan, you can't do it, neiner, neiner." And then Gore was all "fine, we'll have it at Giants Stadium in New Jersey." And then Inhofe was all "fine!" And then they both slammed their doors. Yeah, good times.[..]

OK, not really. But sorta. Let me explain:

Al Gore announced Friday a surprise Live Earth concert in Washington ...

The former vice president said the all-day "Mother Earth" concert would be held on the National Mall at the National Museum of the American Indian -- about two blocks from the Capitol -- as part of Saturday's concert series focused on climate change. The headliners are Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood.

 You can stream Live Earth here...well, that is, unless you're on a Mac.
