James Cameron Knows Everyone Dealing With Oil Spill (But Him) Is a ‘Moron’

On Tuesday, we told you that James Cameron was in Washington, D.C., participating in an EPA-organized brainstorming session about stemming the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. We are happy to report that this brainstorming session was not — we repeat not — the EPA’s idea. The Titanic director was “watching [the spill] with growing horror,” apparently thinking exactly what we’ve all been thinking: “Those morons don’t know what they’re doing.” Word James, word. Cameron's next thought was a bit more unique: “Wait a minute. I know a lot of people who work in deep submergence … They know the engineering that’s required to work at that depth.” He then got in touch with the EPA to get the aforementioned brainstorming session off the ground, but only after he reached out to BP, who — morons! — rejected his help. As for how soon Cameron can get this here giant oil spill fixed, he promised that in the meeting it was decided, “There are things that can be done.”
