“Marine Energy: Power the Entire Globe” — Alternative Energy Speculator

By Travis Johnson, Stock Gumshoe, April 15, 2008

This is about what they’re calling “marine energy,” which is yet another kind of renewable energy that’s getting some attention — though frankly, I heard more about these companies last year than I have recently, kind of the opposite of what you’d expect for a renewable energy technology during these times of skyrocketing oil prices. Remember when $70 a barrel seemed high? That was less than a year ago. Jeez.

It’s clearly nonpolluting and you can’
