I could not disagree more with Mark's comment that Jacques Cousteau was all about money. In fact the record shows just the opposite. Jacques was not into hotel developments and sleazy promotional deals, and he never lost his integrity getting financial backers for various projects aimed at educating people about the environment and why we should protect it.
On the other hand, the record shows that Jean-Michel is primarily a businessman who lost his credibility as an environmentalist when he sold out to the diving industry to finance dive resort developments and put the family name on shark feeding, shark riding and whatever else turns a buck.
