BP Builds City For Oil Spill Workers (VIDEO)

CNN reports from the Gulf, near the Louisiana coast, where BP is building a temporary city to house 1,500 oil spill clean up workers. The location features army-style bunk housing, laundry and dining facilities, and even 24-hour police to enforce order, including the site's "no alcohol" rule. BP says the city could remain in operation anywhere from three to six months. We couldn't quite put our fingers on it, but there seems to be something a little creepy about this new BP city. Also, we couldn't help but wonder, how much oil and energy is it going to take to power this massive operation?
