Today would have been the 100th birthday of Jacques Cousteau.

So in honor of the man who brought the incredibly beautiful and fragile ocean environment to our television screens, and mindful of the terrible, generational damage being done to the Gulf of Mexico, how about a small remembrance to Cousteau's charity for the Rights of Future Generations:

" Every person has the right to inherit an uncontaminated planet on which all forms of life may flourish. "
