Siberia Alaska Tunnel to be built
"The massive undertaking would traverse the Bering Strait with the world’s longest tunnel – a project twice the length of the Chunnel between England and France. The $65 billion project aims to feed North America with raw goods from the Siberian interior and beyond, but it could also provide a key link to developing a robust renewable energy transmission corridor that feeds wind and tidal power across vast distances while linking a railway network across 3/4 of the Northern Hemisphere."

Re: Siberia Alaska Tunnel to be built
The map in that article is very disingenuous.
There is NO rail link to Nome, and there will not be for a very long time, if ever.

We are just now building the very first stage of a rail link from Fairbanks to
Canada -- a bridge across the Tanana River, at astronomical cost (the military
is paying for a lot of it). This project has been in the planning stages for many years and very nearly did not happen because of EPA bullshit. Such as
worrying that building the bridge might impact 'scrub willows in the braided floodplain of the Tanana'. Seriously. You can read all about it for yourself
at www.northernrailextension.com

How about a few direct flights from Alaska to Siberia instead of some
impossible tunnel dream ? As it is, we have to fly clear around the world
to get next door.

Re: Siberia Alaska Tunnel to be built
IIRC it isn't going to be done until 2060, plenty of time to make a railroad anywhere.
