Remember in Full Circle, the talk of building a tunnel under the Bering Sea?

Here is a site for it.

Can't see it happening myself.

As globalization is going on, the traffic systems will grow and get closer connected, not doubt about that. But I doubt the proposed tunnel solution. At the moment you need about 20000.- Euro to build just one meter of a simple two-lane-street-tunnel in a suitable geological ground. Here you have to go through very active regions of the earth's crust. Against the cost of this project, the construction of the International Space Station looks like a bargain.

The tunnel between France and England is a masterpiece of tunnel engineering but finacially it is a desaster. It started with the announcement of reducing transportation costs dramatically (remember the protests of airlines and ferry owners), but today it wouldn't exist anymore without public money pushed in.

The installation of a regular car ferry in the Bering Street built from former Russian and American military nuclear submarines looks far more likely to me ;-).

Oh yes, I am as skeptical as you guys, just thought I would present it. Maybe y'all can email him and ask questions.
