Kevin Costner is trying to prevent Oilworld

by Mark R

I suppose that words are insufficient to describe the environmental damage of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico that is still going on.

I’ve heard a lot about all the failed attempts to fight the spill, but there is a machine that can supposedly extract 97 percent of the oil from the water.

This machine is being promoted by none other than Kevin Costner. Apparently the actor is quite the environmentalist, and he has been funding this particular project for about 15 years with his brother.

I have included a video after the jump so you can see the actor who portrayed Elliot Ness, Robin Hood, and various other roles claim that he has a device that can clean up the 200 gallon a minute problem.

If he really has been working on this device for 15 years, then he must have just started after he had finished the movie Waterworld. Most people bring that movie up every time they mention a bomb of a film, but I’m guessing that the environmental message of the film was enough to inspire Costner to do something. How many films have done that?

Well, I hope that this device is as incredible as it claims. As you can see from the video, they are working on extracting the other 3 percent of oil from the water, making it safe enough to drink!
