A new era of undersea exploration began in 1944, when a trio of young Frenchmen used the aqualung for the first time. In the coming decades Jacques Cousteau would become an international celebrity and bring photos and film of the world beneath the waves to a fascinated public.

If the oceans should die: It is a shocking paradox that at the precise moment in history when man is arriving at an understanding of the sea he should also have to face this question. Just now, in our generation, when after many thousands of years of ignorance and superstitions man is at last beginning to learn about managing and exploiting the vast resources of 70 per cent of earth's surface, he finds himself in a race against time to rescue it from his own spoilations
Attack and defense by Jacques Cousteau( Book )

23 editions published between 1973 and 1975 in English and held by 1,141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the cliches of the horror filmmaker is the mobile vegetable, especially if it is carnivorous! Most of us are willing to accept -- not perhaps as casually as we ought to -- the contortions of serpents, the eight-legged hops of tarantulas, the multi-oared progress of centipedes, the sinister creep of the brittle star. But that a carrot should painfully pull itself up out of the ground and wriggle towards us: that is terrifying. It was, after all, the ambulatory wood of Birnam which persuaded Macbeth that all was lost. Plants should stay put, our instincts tell us. Movement is for animals!

Anyone who has seen the early morning feeding at sea on a calm day has also witnessed the superiority of the warm-blooded physiology over the cold-blooded way of life. Sardines, sprats, anchovies, and other schooling fry, chased relentlessly from below by faster, larger fish such as jacks, turn the surface into a boiling kettle, while seabirds, like dive bombers, take their share of the feast. The warmer the blood, the higher the efficiency of the living thermodynamic machine
