BP (NYSE:BP): No To Cameron's Offer To Assist In Oil Spill Containment

You would think BP (NYSE:BP) would take all the help they can get, but they turned down Cameron's offer to assist in the oil spill containment effort. Cameron, the director in Avatar and Titanic is known for his campaigning for environmental protection.

Cameron said, "over the last few weeks I've watched, as we all have, with growing horror and heartache, watching whats happening in the Gulf and thinking those morons don't know what there doing." He made it apparent his specialty isn't in deep sea expertise, or in drilling for oil. He claims to know people that are very good in electronic optical fiber and operating underwater vehicles.

"I know really, really, really smart people that work typically at depths than what that well is at. Most importantly, they know the engineering that is required to get something done at that depth," said Cameron. He said today that BP "graciously" turned down his offer.

BP has said they've received thousands of ideas on how to stop the hazardous spill. These ideas have come from the everyday person to big corporations.
