With BP oil flooding the Gulf of Mexico, and young Cousteaus flooding the cable news airwaves, I was glad to see Wired honoring Jacques’ one hundredth birthday anniversary with a mini-video retrospective.
Cousteau opened up the undersea world to generations of otherwise indifferent humans. And the degree of outrage we see today over BP is in no small part thanks to the awareness of the beauty and magnificence of the universe that exists beneath the surface of our oceans.
I wonder what Jacques would be doing and saying if he were still alive today?
