James Cameron wants to help stop that gigantic oil spill

06.01.2010

Filmmaker/gill-man James Cameron has spent countless hours underwater, and developed the tech to do so. Does he have a better handle on how to take care of the Gulf oil leak/disaster than the people who are purportedly fixing the problem? Judging by their rate of success resolving the matter, possibly.

The environmentally conscious creator of other worlds wants to assist in rescuing this one before heading into deep space for more Unobtainium and romping with blue bipeds (or just going to Mars). Cameron is in Washington meeting with deep-ocean experts to brainstorm on how to contain the growing problem.

He's joined by Canadian ocean innovator Phil Nuytten, who built the special submersibles Cameron used in THE ABYSS. Cameron has since returned underwater with updated and improved ocean tech for TITANIC and the documentaries EXPEDITION: BISMARCK, GHOSTS OF THE ABYSS and ALIENS OF THE DEEP. And AQUAMAN, of course. So he's probably logged more time below the surface than BP's entire staff.

Between this and Kevin Costner's working WATERWORLD solution, maybe we ought to put more famous people in a room to spitball some ideas...

Extra Tidbit: Like him or not, at least Cameron isn't just going on TV and throwing around complaints and blame...

He'd have my vote for prime minister...
Fuck G5's, Cameron's got his own fleet of submarines. I think between him and Les Grossman, they could pretty much solve all the worlds problems.

That bastard!
How dare he try to stop an environmental tragedy!
Go eat some lentils hippy!
But seriously, good on the man. If he manages to stop it we should vote him President (of Canada)

I'd vote for Cameron as President of Canada, mostly because the position doesn't exist.
We have a Prime Minister.

Can't do worse

than what BP is doing right now. If he stops the leak, more power to him. He seems like he knows what he's talking about.

how about they hold a contest at all the colleges for students to come up with ideas? the reward/payment being their tuition being paid for their entire program/whatever. im sure there are TONS of students who might just have some good workable ideas. as for cameron, yeh, i'd say he might just be able to help with all the people he knows from doing research for docs and films.

He'll probably send a 10ft tall blue Terminator back through time in a submersible with a 3D camera to fix the prob. Yeah.... That's what he'll do.

Listen here 00 negative. It was a joke. Gee the air you are breathing must be very thin way up on that high horse you're on. Just a shame this is on the net and not face to face. I'd like to hear you call me a dumbass then. I actually happen to like the guy and hope he does fix the prob.

Ok...

Glad to see he's trying to help. Feds must be out of ideas, though, if they're looking to Hollywood for help. Let's bring in Bruce Willis as well. He did save the planet from an asteroid already.

Cameron is a crackpot-douchebag. Costner's solution is pretty nifty though.

Cameron's Plan B:

We send a cybernetic organism back in time to prevent the oil spill from ever occurring.

Good for Jim!

He doesn't talk or assign blame. He gets down there and assists in solving the problem. As well, Costner's oil/water separator machines are very cool.
