James Cameron Calls BP A Bunch Of "Morons"

Speaking at the All Things Digital technology conference, James Cameron slammed BP for their “gracious” refusal to accept any assistance from the famous director and his team of underwater robotic experts.

“There’s a story that the government went to Hollywood for help,” Cameron said. “But that’s not the case. I’ve just been interested and really involved in subs and wrecks for a long time. So over the last few weeks, I’ve been watching what’s happening and saying, ‘Those morons don’t know what they’re doing.’ And then I realized I know a lot of people who work in deep submergence. They don’t do oil, but they know the engineering. So I got 23 people together for a brainstorming session at EPA headquarters.”

However, Cameron said that BP turned down his request for help.

“They could not have been more gracious. But they said, ‘We’ve got this’. Here’s the thing, we sat in a room for 10 hours and worked this problem. It’s a very complex problem, and it starts 18,000 feet down. Steel fails like it’s made out of butter. So you find out there are things that prevent them from doing obvious fixes. But there are things that can be done.”

Cameron added that the US Government should be doing more to independently monitor the situation. “The government really needs to have its own independent ability to go down there and image the site, survey the site and do its own investigation. Because if you’re not monitoring it independently, you’re asking the perpetrator to give you the video of the crime scene.”
