The ink was hardly dry on the Declaration of Independence when poet Robert Burns made his famous observation that "the best laid schemes o' mice and men gang aft agley," which, for those of us who are a little unpolished on "Scotch" (the language), it roughly means that things don't always turn out as planned.

Renewable energy stocks rose in December 2007, after the Senate passed a revised energy bill designed to cut the US dependence on imported oil by imposing the biggest increase in fuel-efficiency standards in 32 years.  Particularly, the energy bill raised sixfold the amount of renewable fuels that must be used for blending of products like gasoline, to 36 billion gallons a year by 2022, which gave a strong boost to ethanol stocks.
