100 years of Jacques Cousteau
My grandfather, Jacques Cousteau, was an eternal optimist and believed in the ability of humanity to find solutions to the world’s problems.
Now more than a decade after his death and on the eve of his 100th birthday, I am concerned that we are still struggling with the same challenges that he faced throughout his lifetime. Daily onslaughts against the environment such as the new proclamation to open up offshore drilling, while not as bad as it could have been, are still a worrisome sign.
We are a society that still too often treats the environment as somewhat of a nuisance…to be cared for only when it suits our needs...surprisingly, I believe that the solution might just come from an unexpected place…video games...
