You can't own a person.

--

Legally maybe you can't own a person. But there are slaves today.

So if one can't own the air in total, can one pollute the air even if it is illegal? I say we can and we do because it is hard to deal with over 7 billion people polluting the air. We - all of us - are changing our climate by polluting our air (and of course myriad other ways of changing earth) and even if it might be illegal in some places, it still happens. Just like slavery.
