There is little doubt that Americans are getting fatter. As an example, a new Coast Guard regulation requires that the Washington State Ferries reduce their maximum capacity by 250 passengers because the average body weight of individual passengers has increased by 25 pounds. Common wisdom attributes the rise in obesity to the high caloric/low nutrient levels of the junk food that many people eat and to the auto-centric, pedestrian-hostile physical environments in which they live.

The once booming solar panel industry has hit some difficult times. According to a report from Common Dreams, supply has exceeded demand, which has resulted in factory closures and a loss of jobs. Four years ago, with surging energy prices and a looming recession, hundreds of solar panel manufacturing plants were built to meet rising demand. Now with a weakened economy and a cheap supply of natural gas, only a handful of solar panel manufacturers remain profitable.While solar panels, or photovoltaic energy as its known to industry insiders, is struggling, the market for solar thermal energy remains steady.
