Or would all companies simply agree not to pollute?
Or do you simply have no opinion on this?
In your mind all companies *must* pollute something in order to make a profit (which you don't seem to like). I disagree. Most companies are good & responsible entities, that hire people, pay them salaries & benefits pay taxes and in fact, do not *pollute*.
I disagree with your assertions that without government (ie a bunch of self serving politicians) all companies would pollute the planet and we would all die. If you knew how much pollution of the atmosphere occurs when the space shuttle blasts off you would freak out. But that's okay because its the government and its not making a profit.
As you can see I do have an opinion. It just differs from yours.
The probability of survival is inversely proportional to the angle of arrival.
