The Cousteau Is Clear

September 18th, 2006

Tonight's episode (at 7:30; repeated on Friday night at 10:30) is a rebroadcast of an interview that I did with second-generation oceanographer Jean-Michel Cousteau. (You can read my original blog item here.)

And since you're already on the Internet at this moment, you might also want to check out the fabulous website that our genius-level KQED interactive team has put together for Cousteau's PBS series, Jean-Michel Cousteau: Ocean Adventures. There's all kinds of information on such topics as fighting global warming and preserving natural sanctuaries, there are ring tones and wallpapers to download, and there's a whole bunch of stuff for educators to use with their ocean-loving students.

Just about the only thing you won't find on the website is the mystical source of Cousteau's effortless charm. Must be something the French put in their water. ...

    Excellent Excellent show! I just want to say that having sailed the Pacific Coast from San Francisco to Columbia 20 years ago (and a former scuba diver) I had notcied the incredible amount of pollution, plastics, etc, in the ocean and on the beach. The point is that the lesser privilaged or non-educated people of this country and other countries need to be educated. After all, who are the people chosing to watch KQED? It’s not the fisherman out there trying to make a living, who leaves his net in the ocean. I would like to know what Jean-Micheal proposes for the education of those not priveled to watch KQED or be aware of this wonderful program. Please let me know how we can educate and help those who might not understand or whose economic situation may not warrant changes in behaviour. Bottom line, we need to lead, and how can we do this where the message gets to those who most need it?
