Posting after the lock, but...
Understood. I'll review the thread sometime and see if I can present a better economic argument for the need to account for negative externalities, which is the whole point in retrospect I was trying to make.
Put some real thought into that because I think what you should have discovered in this thread is that what you think are issues of economics are instead issues of personal choice/values (in particular, short term vs long term tradeoffs). Economics isn't math. It isn't possible to arrive at a single accepted/"right" answer.
