I am sorry but this is a very stupid idea, there is no demand for such infrastructure. There is for example no ferry between Siberia and Alaska and if you want to take a light vehicle quickly between the two it had better be amphibious unless you are prepared to pay for air transport. Added to which the infrastructure to deliver traffic to either end of this bridge/tunnel does not exist. Do you realize what the weather is like in Siberia and Alaska in winter? Read this account of two British nuts who decided to drive (eventually) from the Cape of Good Hope to Cape Horn. They have so far gone from London to Nome, Alaska.

blowback - you have no vision, sir. Of course there is no practical need. Good thing humans have a need for poetry however, both written and visualized. It is a project for the soul of nations and peoples. And anyway it was funded by the Moonies, so obviously it is more of a metaphor than a practical proposal. Open your imagination, for your self if no one else
