Jean-Michel Cousteau Dispatch - April 2017
I am on my way to Washington D.C next week. I know we all are feeling the dire need to mobilize and come together to show our support for a more sustainable energy future. There has never been more urgent time than NOW. The United States administration and the world need to hear from us. Climate change is the greatest challenge in human history and since our future depends on a healthy environment we need to be a strong force, vocalizing our desire to see effective leadership to support healthy oceans, healthy lives.
Though the challenges ahead are real and daunting – we can overcome any obstacle we face through coming together, raising our voices, and continuing to tell the world and its decision-makers that our quality of life is tied to the quality, health, and strength of our natural world. This planet is our only home, and we must do everything in our power to protect it. When you protect the ocean, you protect yourself.
It is in these short newsletters to you, our dedicated Ocean Futures Society members, that I have the wonderful opportunity of thanking you for your ongoing support. We extend our heartfelt thanks for joining our efforts as we continue turning the tide, making a difference globally, expanding our efforts, and protecting and improving the quality of life on our blue planet, Ocean.
