Avatar director James Cameron, an expert in underwater robotics and video, said Wednesday that BP has rejected his offer to help. From nydailynews.com:
"Over the last few weeks, I've watched, as we all have, with growing horror and heartache, watching what's happening in the Gulf and thinking those morons don't know what they're doing," Cameron said at the All Things Digital tech conference.
Cameron has done extensive work with robot submarines and underwater filming in his movies.
Earlier in the day he attended a conference with the Environmental Protection Agency and pushed to have the government get its own independent look at the leak.
"If you're not monitoring it independently, you're asking the perpetrator to give you the video of the crime scene," Cameron said.
