They've talked about this for years. They've also talked about a tunnel under the Bearing Strait to connect Russia to Alaska.
Both projects would require MASSIVE investment, and the return on these investments would take quite a while. It can be done, but with other cheaper
ways in place producing energy -- why spend the money?
It's certainly cleaner than coal or natural gas...it also is probably less damaging to an ecosystem than a hydro dam. Like I said though, the initial
investment is just to high.
