I would like to try and keep politics out of this thread if possible and I will post a poll in a bit but I was just watching "Mega-Engineering" on the Discovery Channel and the show was all about building an intercontinental railroad underneath the Bering Sea, connecting Russia and the North American continent. Of course they were trying to go into detail about all the major conflicts with such a project.
For practical reasons, we know that whatever project that comes down the pike, they can say it will be a multi-national effort but reality shows that it is the United States that picks up 90-100% of the bill on these contracts.
For me, I would like to see an effort to colonize the ocean floors., I want to see vast communities of people living underwater, mining and farming the resources down their for OUR benefit.
What projects would you like to see and why and like I said, a poll is forthcoming.
