Kevin Costner Gonna Clean Up That BP Oil Spill

Submitted by: fancylad 7 years ago in

If Costner"s wacky contraption works and extracts the oil from the water like he says it will, we"ll forgive Waterworld.

"something tells me that the oil in the water is a bit thicker than diesel... "

Isnt that the point. With a thinner liquid succesfully separating, it would be easy to assume that a thicker liquid would be easier to separate....Oddly though, while the oil separates from the water....methane dissovles into water. Is anything being done or reasearched to possibly stem the spread of O2-less zones due to methane saturation?

good on him. Also, don`t you reckon his clit tickler looks a bit lopsided?

I can`t post a video that was made 2 weeks ago, but this can be double posted within a month?

So they started a project 15 years ago to extract oil from water, and then this happens... sounds like a conspiracy from environmental activists to put their head on leadership shoulders... and just the man to do it...

Everyone hates waterworld, but you have to undertsand it was universal studios that made the released version only OK. The original was supposed to be 3 1/2 hours long, once they gave it to the studios they hacked it up to 90 minutes. Later when aired on TV they showed an extended version thats about 3 hours. I have showed this to 5 people that HATED Waterworld and ALL agreed this version was a good movie.

Guessing the centrifuge is powered by a diesel motor? You know what would be cool? if the machines could run directly on the diesel fuel that they were pumping out of the ocean. Karma right there...

@D3rAnG3d - Obviously they`re not gonna throw one machine into the ocean, guaranteed they`re going to have hundreds, and at a much much bigger size.

"but did they account that sea salt water is much denser than tap water?"
It`s centrifugal. Heavier water will just be easier to differentiate from oil which already rises to the surface without help.

so which end does the salt come out on? the side with the diesel or the side with the water?

So, they think this tiny ass machine is going to clean up the 50+ million barrels of oil?... I hope they have a lot more of those things then.

"So you can actually drink out of the machine" So this machine is a desalinization tank as well?

I liked Waterworld. A bit slow, but some new editing can speed the pace up. It was WAY better than Star Wars episodes II & III

@ferrari91169: You have little clue what you`re talking about. Mother Nature can clean up 3% much faster than 30%, 40% up to 100%. Besides, the 3% that would be left will have little to no impact on the environment. It would be about the same as what leaks naturally. Also, do you think the professionals in the clip would be excited about it if "it really wouldn`t make any difference?"

@xhaseox,

Yes, when grading papers and things like that, 97% is good...an A+ like you say, but this is an entirely different subject.

Say you`re cleaning something very toxic out of drinking water, and you get 99% of it out. There`s still 1% of that VERY harmful toxin in the water, so while yes, you cleaned the majority of it, it`s still unusable until the entire 100% is cleaned.

And it`s the same with this. Yes, 97% cleaned is better than what it is now, but being that it`s not 100% it will still be harmful, and in effect, it really wouldn`t make any difference.

The awesomeness of Field of Dreams already canceles out the awfulness of Waterworld. Kevin, you really may be our hero!

Strange but true: actors and celebrities do occasionally come up with useful technology. TV host and ventriloquist Paul Winchell held the first patent for an artificial heart. Actress Hedy Lamarr was the co-inventor of spread-spectrum broadcasting.

they make it sound like 97% is a D, last time I checked 97% usually gets you an A+ or at least an A.

its not that Costner came up with the idea, he just funded it and thus gets the press. everyone knows that centrifugal force can separate liquids of various density, its what they use in blood tests and other various tests.

I thought the issue isn`t the oil in the water but the fact its still leaking and its going to take a while to get it plugged up.

@spartanman here`s the catch! the oil it uses is refined AND is on the right place (inside a machine oil tank). They can use 500x as much (thanks @Zerocyde) as long as they can clean the ocean water (even if only 97%).

The more I think about it, the more "Waterworld" seems like a pretty good movie after all.

*Shrug* Use 500x as much oil as it extracts, as long as it extracts it.

This is serious, he`s invested millions creating a machine - THAT WORKS - that separates oil from water.

Forget he`s Kevin Costner - he`s just an a man with a great idea and $$$ to back it up.

If this works it`ll just be proof that BP is either run by a bunch of monkeys with down syndrome or the waste of oil really was just a profit incentive.
