James Cameron is upset no one listened to him about the oil spill

James Cameron

James Cameron is pissed. And though it pains us to admit it, he might be right. Last month the director visited Washington to meet with BP and government officials to brainstorm solutions for the spill. Well, marine experts wanted him to brainstorm solutions. Cameron, on the other hand, brought a twenty-five page brief on how to plug the disaster immediately, like an overzealous kid that knows a lot about deep-water technology.

Despite the fact that the plug is sealed and all the oil has been siphoned and problem solved, no more bad things – Cameron is still annoyed that the government ignored his proposal, which was, in essence, the Static Kill method used several weeks later.  "I'm not saying they did it because we recommended it. I think they did it because it was the right thing to do. But they basically did exactly what we said should be done," Cameron said.
