Tunnel connecting Europe and America?


Russia has ambitious plans of building a tunnel under the Bering Strait connecting its far east landmass with Alaska. The 64 mile tunnel, not unlike the English Chunnel connecting England and France, could stimulate freight traffic and aid in supply of oil, gas and electricity from Siberia to the US and Canada. The mega project could cost a whopping $65 billion and could take a decade for completion.

Sounds far-fetched with no news about this from the US side.

I think the Russians want to extricate themselves from having to send gas supplies to their customers, through hostile Eastern European countries.

Ha! Could be.
