Excellent links although I suspect some of our members will disagree.

I've only watched the first so far, but it looks like an interesting twist on the the 'tragedy of the commons'. Thanks for sharing!

I don't really have time to watch videos; what what the gist of it?

That protecting the environment, like all things, is best done by reducing the power of the government and putting more power in the hands of individuals.

The Western Standard had an interesting article last month on how regulations can often harm the environment.

The great example they gave is how Ontario-made electric vehicles are not allowed to be driven on Ontario roads (slow vehicle regulations).

Allowing vehicles capable of going up to 40 Kms/h in 50 zones would not only help the environment, but would in a small way help the Ontario auto industry.

Since when did the Ontario government give a Sh*t about helping business.

They wouldn't go for a combined GST PST because it would effect the price of Kids shoes. It would also save thousands of manufacturing jobs (but who cares).

Government is the problem. It does not solve problems.

It's an explanation of applying libertarian principles of laissez faire economics to the environment. Author Walter Block is flogging his new book, "Economics and the Environment; A Reconciliation" with an interview. As Block explains his theory, it's interesting to hear the disbelief and eventually shock of the interviewer as she finds the theory credible if unorthodox.
