The Pacific Development Corridor: Maglev Through The Bering Strait
This article is being released as part of a package of articles, published by 21st Century Science and Technology Magazine, on the perspective for mankind’s coming four generations. This article details the extended Pacific Basin development projects — from NAWAPA XXI, across the Bering Straits, to rail and nuclear development in Southeast Asia — viewed as a single, integrated program of voluntary upward evolution.

by Benjamin Deniston

The construction of the northern components of NAWAPA XXI in Alaska and Canada opens up develop- ment programs with massive international implications, linking the United States with East Asia in the creation of a high-technology, fusion and fission powered backbone for a new world economy.

A major geopolitical shift towards the Pacific is already underway, with a strong pro-growth orientation in Asia, centered around pro-development factions in China, Russia, South Korea, and Japan. This directionality stands is stark contrast with the stagnation and collapse of the trans-Atlantic sector. In-line with this Pacific orientation, Arctic development is increasingly becoming an area of focus, with major untapped resource deposits lying in wait, while the melting of Arctic ice is opening up northern shipping routes.

The development of the nuclear-thermonuclear NAWAPA XXI system links the United States, Canada, and Mexico into this Pacific/Arctic perspective. However, the critical factor must be continually emphasized and underscored: the success of the effort fully depends upon the highest levels of technology and energy flux density achievable.

The present physical-economic collapse of the United States is the result of four decades of stagnation and attrition. Living standards have collapsed, industry has been shut down, power per capita has gone backwards, and [To continue...]
