Titanic Director Criticises Those Behind Oil Spill

"Avatar" and "Titanic" director James Cameron on Wednesday evening severely castigated those behind stopping the geyser of oil into the Gulf of Mexico and again extended support to the private team of deep-sea experts.

"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 posted at the D: All Things Digital conference sponsored by The Wall Street Journal near Los Angeles.

Cameron formed expertise in deep sea robotic vehicles and submersibles over a time span of 22 years, he posted. That's resulted in the filming of two documentaries about the Titanic, in addition, to the feature film of that name, which grabbed the importance of the highest-grossing feature film ever of the era.

Cameron, an expert in undersea filming and remote-vehicle technologies, also happens to be the director of "Avatar" and "Terminator 2".

He was present this week at the Washington headquarters of the Environmental Protection Agency with top scientists pondering over to look out for a solution concerning the unstoppable oil leak deep beneath the Gulf.

Cameron has been honored for his assistance in developing submersible equipment to film the accidently destroyed remains of the real Titanic and the German battleship Bismark about two miles beneath the sea level.
