While Cameron has done his own deep-sea exploration, he told ComingSoon.net that it wasn’t at all related to his upcoming film.  He explained that Avatar 2 will “have less to do with the deep exploration that I’ve done than it has to do with my concerns about conservation of Earth’s oceans.”

“It’s all the scuba diving I did before I even started the deep ocean stuff that has more of a direct connection to Avatar 2 and 3,” he said.

“A few degrees of temperature rise are gonna basically take out the coral reefs,” he continued.  “All those beautiful images of the coral environments we all grew up with won’t exist in 50 years at the rate we’re going in terms of pumping greenhouse gases into the environment.  These are the things that concern me.”
