Is the next Bubble Alternative Energy

I have read several periodicals where people are predicting that Alternative Energy will fuel the next bubble (no pun intended).

Anyone else seeing articles speculating about the next area of speculation?

No I haven't seen them. However, I would be interested in reading the articles you read. AE seems like a logical next bubble choice.

Do you think exposure to tech funds would cover this?
Or would it be to energy funds?
maybe a little of both?

Sounds like it's a good time to look for the "pick and shovel" makers for the alternative energy sector. They are usually the ones making the big profits.
"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)
