With the re-release of James Cameron's Oscar nominated blockbuster Avatar this weekend, he gives audiences nine more minutes of footage and his two cents on the BP oil spill disaster.
Cameron recently told the Daily News,
"The BP mess is a classic example of how our energy policies, or lack thereof, are going to hurt us." A symptom of the same corporate greed that drove the fictional RDA Corporation to pillage the planet Pandora in the film, he said.
And don't think that Cameron is all talk and no action: He played a key part in an environmental protest against the construction of the Belo Monte dam project in Brazil, saving land inhabited by indigenous tribes, and assembled a committee of twenty-eight specialists who met with the EPA to help brainstorm solutions to plug up the busted oil well.
