You know what? It’s not like anyone else has any better ideas! We say let him do it!

Yesterday, actor Kevin Coster stood in front of Congress to pleaded with them to consider his offer of vacuum-like machines that could help clean up the oil spill in the Gulf.

Congress came at him with a lot of criticism, focusing on him as an actor rather than a humanitarian, but Kevin fought back, bringing up the most important point of all. He said:

“We are all at fault here. It’s just too easy to blame BP. What we need to do now is come together.”

Exactly. Too much talking, not enough action.

Kevin then described the machines his firm, Ocean Therapy Solutions, has developed to separate oil from seawater. He admits that there are no guarantees it will work, but if enough devices were deployed on enough ships, it could a “partial solution.”

That sounds better to us than no solution at all!

Of course, Congress tried to discredit him by questioning his sincerity to the cause. One representative suggested that he was only hocking the cleanup project for publicity. In response, Kevin explained how he dropped million to develop the centrifuge devices with his scientist brother, Dan.

That’s a lot of money to drop for the cover of People Magazine.

In the end, it seems while BP is willing to enter some contracts with Kevin, the government is not, citing the .5 trillion debt the USA is in as a factor.

Great, so while you all nickel and dime every thing, our oceans are going to shit!

No, you are totally right. This isn’t worth funding at all! Saving our major water supply can wait.
