This article reports that since the Industrial Revolution, industry has been polluting for free, because no legally recognized individual has property rights to our communal beaches, rivers and air. Such scaremongering has persuaded British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Gordon Brown that deregulation is a top priority because environmental protection is damaging British industry. Scaremongering is leading to huge policy errors that will undermine the economy and environment. Conversely, there are direct benefits from environmental protection.
