Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. And just who would want to travel to remote Alaska via tunnel anyways?
Russia plans to build the world’s longest tunnel, a transport and pipeline link under the Bering Strait to Alaska, as part of a $65 billion project to supply the U.S. with oil, natural gas and electricity from Siberia.
The project is a monster,” Yevgeny Nadorshin, chief economist with Trust Investment Bank in Moscow, said in an interview. “The Chinese are crying out for our commodities and willing to finance the transport links, and we’re sending oil to Alaska.”
And don’t we already have oil? We’ve also been trying to work out our own gas pipeline. This is the last thing we need.
