Feds Ask Terminator Director to Help With Oil Geyser

arnold-schwarzenegger-the-terminator.jpgThe important thing about this story is the EPA also met with scientists…and James Cameron. We apparently will only care about the filmmaker much to the chagrin of the scientists.

CBS News reports:

The “Avatar” and “Titanic” director was among a group of scientists and other experts who met Tuesday with officials from the Environmental Protection Agency and other federal agencies for a brainstorming session on stopping the massive oil leak.

The Canadian-born Cameron is considered an expert on underwater filming and remote vehicle technologies. “Avatar” and “Titanic” are the two highest-grossing films of all time.

Can’t say the government isn’t trying to save the gulf now!
