Your logic is flawed about how travel times have never been closer between continents. If you had said human travel times it would be true. Over 175 million years ago, non-avian dinosaurs could literally walk from continent to continent

3:26 you would not have to build a $20,000,000,000> bridge, just make a channel tunnel. ive done some research and it states the 14km tunnel would only cost $50,000,000

Never, never ever-ever happening!!! If you consider that ONE petro supertanker carries the equivalent of 12,000 trailer truck tanks at ONE TIME, there is no commercial reason to invest a DOLLAR in such a roadway...so, NOT HAPPENING!
