James Cameron Called In to Help Stop Gulf Oil Leak

James Cameron's Tech Knowledge Could Help Plug Oil Leak

A group of scientists and environmentalists gathered with officials from the EPA earlier today, meeting to brainstorm ways to plug up BP's underwater oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico. Among them was filmmaker James Cameron. The Hollywood producer/director wasn't called in to document the experience, or turn it into a spectacular blockbuster film, though — he is considered an expert on underwater filming after spending years researching and exploring the Titanic for his documentary Ghosts of the Abyss.

James used state-of-the-art technology and 3D photography to maneuver and capture images of the RMS Titanic from over two miles below the surface of the ocean. EPA officials are hoping this knowledge could come in handy for any attempt to shore up the leak from above.
