Biomimicry Airplanes: Applying Shark Skin To Save Fuel Costs

Airbus and Lufthansa are working on a synthetic shark skin to cut fuel burn.

With sciences like Biomimicry (and other eco-friendly systems of production such as Cradle-to-Cradle), corporations have the opportunity to save on resources and become more profitable in the long run. These sciences and technologies allow us to increase our global economic potential while also protecting nature and the people around.

As explained in the book Occupy The Market, “Corporate globalization is terminally ill. The question is not if the system will fail or when, but how. Do we transcend into a super modern and self-sufficient civilization based on advanced sciences, localization, and natural diversity as proposed by Biomimicry and Cradle-to-Cradle? Are we destined to retreat into small agrarian towns as the model proposed by The Transition Movement? Or are we a meaningless small specie, a bacteria as in the eyes of Janine Benyus, that is destined to blow off the face of the earth, leaving no trace of our marvelous achievements and falling very short of our potential?”
