I was referring to a system where a factory or mining operation would have to negotiate with local landholders for pollution rights as Phattonez referred to. To my knowledge, this sort of thing implemented on a large scale would be a new innovation.
Who owns the local rivers or lakes? How large an area does air pollution affect? Quite frankly I'm more comfortable starting from the position of "you don't have the right to pollute."
