How can we strike a balance between environmental sustainability and economic realities? In this university podcast, aquatic filmmaker and oceanographic explorer Fabien Cousteau discusses the problem of the failing health of our planet as it relates to climate change, over-consumption of natural resources, and pollution. He offers glimpses of a public policy platform grounded by his strong belief that environmental discipline can be the basis for innovative solutions that strike a balance between regional and global environmental problems and the realities of market economies. Cousteau spoke at the USRio+2.0 Conference, hosted by the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
