Been watching it too on TCM....Lots to think and do about correcting and problems on marine and oceanic systems.However a number of people both young and old don't realize how nature keeps things in balance and there is a reason for everything on this blue planet has to endure a better future for biodiversity.
It's my honor Teresa. I am on Cousteau mode right now lol. Last week Turner Classic Movies had a twenty four hour marathon of the old Cousteau tv series and other Cousteau documentaries. I was in heaven. I can't get enough of him or his wonderful family.
What would he think about the Gulf of Mexico oil catastrophe? I imagine he would be doing something to stop it and to help the poor wildlife and fish if he could.
Even though he is not with us any longer, his time on our earth is one that left behind a legacy which in a way has taken on a life of its own. It's up to us to carry it on.
