Ok, I fully lol'd at that
None the less, if the guy is campaigning for environmental stuff, then good on him. I don't care if he looks like a tool, he's high profile and worth a shit-ton of money, so if he gets something done, then wicked.

What's the story behind it?
Now that he seems to have filmed all there is to document in the deep sea, particularly regarding the wreckage of the Titanic, James Cameron apparently has a new obsession: indigenous tribes of the Amazon. Recently he spoke about the Achuar people, who'd seen Avatar and responded in a way that made him alter his plot ideas for the film's sequel. Now he's talking about making a 3D documentary on Brazil's Xikrin-Kayapo tribe. He has already filmed a short piece about their opposition to a major dam project in their area (the Belo Monte hydroelectric plant), which will be included as a bonus feature on the next Avatar DVD release out this Christmas. The feature will be more on the tribe's life and culture.
Cameron, who likened the plot of Avatar to the tribe's issue with the dam construction, could learn a few things from other recent documentaries about Amazon peoples.
haha... spot on man. good call. here's the best part- he's going to try and use the short film he already made about opposing a dam on indigenous land as a way to make even more money by re-releasing Avatar... again... this Christmas with that "bonus footage" on there. X-ploy-tay-shon
