A hundred years ago today

One hundred years ago today, a great human being, one of the most influential environmentalists ever, was born.
Jacques Cousteau and the crew of the Calypso spent years on our televisions showing us the world beneath, the beauty and mystery of the deep.  Almost everything I know about the ocean I know because of him (and much of it I learned directly from his shows).  He was an inspiration to millions to learn about science and nature, and his influence lives on to this day through his grandchildren.

Yours, in tribute,
