Kevin Costner says he has the solution that will save the Gulf of Mexico from BP's ruinous oil catastrophe. He's not kidding. Watch him talk about this machine that, according to him, extracts 97 per cent of oil from the water.
Costner has been funding this project for 15 years, which was spearheaded by his brother. They have a model that processes 757 litres of water per minute. I don't know how it will work in open waters, but it won't hurt to try. And if it works, let's build a navy of these things now. [Treehugger]
