Renewable Energy Stocks Trading Up in Anticipation of an Obama Win?, a leading investor news and research portal for the renewable energy sector within, presents a sector close-up on renewable energy stocks and the recent trading activity pending the election

POINT ROBERTS, WA and DELTA, BC—November 4, 2008 --,

a leading investor news and research portal for the renewable energy sector within, presents a sector close-up on renewable energy stocks and the recent trading activity pending the election. As the sector trades up, two experts comment on the future of renewable energy.

According to solar expert Peter Lynch, feature writer of the Renewable and Solar Energy Perspectives at ,
"Senator Obama truly understands that energy is the greatest problem that he will face as President. He realizes that the age of oil and fossil fuels are drawing to a necessary close. He also realizes that Global Warming is one of the greatest hazards of our time. Most thinking people realize this too, but to date, we have had no leadership capable of leading the world in a new direction. As President Obama can be this leader, he will be the catalyst for the dawn of the solar revolution."

Dr. Robert Wilder, of the WilderHill Clean Energy Index (^ECO) comments , " Like a rubber band that's been stretched quite far, the fact the U.S. fell behind other nations in clean energy the past eight years now looks like it may snap back the other way. Combining a fresh new White House outlook that's positive on green jobs, with a Congress led by a pro-renewable outlook in the House and possibly even 60 vote majority in the Senate means new thinking becomes possible. Old dominance by fossil fuels may even wane: the many harms from coal and oil for instance might be treated for the first time as the problems they are. And better energy independence too could be taken seriously. Whether by cap and trade, or a carbon tax, those carbon laden fuels may even help generate the revenues for new U.S. clean energy, and green jobs here at home."
