Public Affairs

Sunday 6:30-7:00am

This past week, Philippe and Ashlan Cousteau were on the show to discuss the warming of the oceans and how it impacts Planet Earth.

Philippe and Ashlan Cousteau are filmmakers, explorers, ocean restorationists, authors, public speakers, and impact entrepreneurs. Philippe is the grandson of Jacques Cousteau. He met his wife who is a journalist, Ashlan, about 10 years ago while she was covering the Gulf Oil Spill.

The 99-100 degree waters off the coast of Florida precipitated the conversation. Philippe and Ashlan went into some detail about how the 99-100-degree waters destroy ocean life. These warmer ocean waters will also create bigger storms that are far more destructive. We spoke about Krill and their importance not only in the ocean’s ecosystem but the Earth’s as well. The oceans play a monumental role in the Earth’s balance and need to be rebalanced for the sake of all living creatures on Earth. The oceans play a huge role in removing CO2 from the atmosphere. We as human beings can do better.

The last ten minutes of this wonderful conversation is my son, Luka asking questions about the ocean through the eyes of a seven-year-old. He even asks about the coral we found in South Carolina this summer. They see it via Zoom and explain coral’s importance in the Earth’s ecosystem. The White House is made of coral limestone.

Phillippe and Ashlan work together to keep our oceans healthy.

The Oceans are wonderful. Let’s make them better for future generations.

Thank you for listening. – Markus Goldman
