BP Buys Kevin Costner's Oil Spill Clean Up Machines

Actor Kevin Costner told a congressional committee Wednesday that he has spent 20 years and more than $20 million dollars to develop a machine that will separate oil from water to a level of 99 percent purity.

The only problem, the "Field of Dreams" actor told members of Congress, is that after he built it no federal agency or private oil company would use his technology.

"I don't know if I'm embarrassed about the amount of money that I spent, or if I'm proud," Costner said. "But at a certain point I knew I was exhausted."

Costner was one of several witnesses at the hearing that examined the science behind the causes of and responses to the BP oil spill and ways to prevent such disasters.
