OCEAN FREIGHTER PULLED BY SKY SAIL

A German company is using a football-field sized kite to help pull an ocean freighter. The sky sail flies at about 1000 feet above the water. The winds are stronger at 1000 feet. The company believes it will save 50% on fuel costs. Of course, it will be reducing pollution and global warming at the same time.
