James Mother-F–king Cameron!
The Avatar director — and savior to all mankind — was part of a consortium of scientists and other experts who met Tuesday with officials from the Environmental Protection Agency and other federal agencies for a brainstorming session on stopping the massive oil leak.
Movie cred aside, Cameron is considered an expert on underwater filming and remote submersibles — having used the tech many times; especially for his blockbuster 1997 film Titanic.
According to PEOPLE, the 55-year-old director contacted BP several weeks ago and offered the use of his private fleet of deep-dive craft.
We have no idea what solutions were offered yesterday, but hope one of them pays off quickly. It’s estimated that up to 43 million gallons of crude has spewed into the Gulf since BP’s Deepwater Horizon drilling rig exploded April 20.
