Alternative Energy Stocks: The Investor Resource for Alternative Energy Stocks: "'Old news!', you might say...well you're right, except for this: it's one thing when I or some other insignificant blogger bashes (or celebrates) corn ethanol; it's quite another when the top economic think-tank in the world tells you that it sees real long-term viability problems with the way that this industry is currently structured.Coming next week: The Maria Energia Virtual Stock Portfolio - I'll track and trade an alternative energy portfolio.
