Alternate energy does not make any sense until the costs come down much further. Without government subsidy alternate energy cannot stand own its own two feet. The stocks may come and go but the actual efficiency of the products whether it be solar panels, wind turbines or pellet stoves does not make good financial sense. Same with hybrid cars. This does not mean people will not buy these products and the stocks will go up in anticipation but basically in the end common sense will rule. Nukes are the best, then gas and oil.
