James Cameron Saves The World

Clearly, making the world's most successful movies and advancing 3D and effects technology is not enough for self-styled King Of The World, James Cameron; now, he's helping the US government clean up the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Avatar director Cameron was part of a meeting with academics, scientists and "Washington officials" to brainstorm new solutions to the disaster that took place yesterday. The meeting was described by government spokesperson as a "listening session [to share] ideas about possible efforts to mitigate the BP spill's impact on the Gulf region [and] part of the federal government's ongoing efforts to hear from stakeholders, scientists and experts from academia, government and the private sector as we continue to respond to the BP oil spill."

No details have been released of the extent of Cameron's participation, but if he manages to come up with something good, I swear I'll finally forgive him for his terrible taste in tie-in music.
