The design of everything that flows and moves

You may remember when I reviewed the new 'constructal theory' of animal movement.

Apparently, the same principle can be applied to other systems. Science Daily just reported on the way the model was used to predict global climate patterns. Quite exciting!

You can see other applications on a website devoted to this way of thinking. I am naturally skeptical when I see theories that explain everything, but this looks pretty good. What do you all think about it?
