    It’s simple: you’re owed money — actual cash value — by fossil waste dumpers. Your land, your water, your air return fossil CO2 to fossil form by the process of weathering. That process is so scarce it takes thousands of human lifetimes to undo America’s dumping in a single year.

    Weathering is scarce fruits of your land. Every person who buys fossil fuel or clinkered limestone owes you Market rent for that trespass.

    If you’re not collecting what you’re owed from fossil waste dumpers, you’re part of the problem.
