Owning the environment

If you can own a piece of land and if the government can own what is underneath it, like the oil, and the water in an aquifer, then why can’t I own the air above your land?

The answer to environmentalism is in the courts. Environmentalists must appropriate the environment and beat corporations and our government in their own game. Imagine oil companies had to pay for all the chemicals they dump into our environment. Just how cost effective would petrol be then?
