Noise, Sovereignty, and Civility
Publisher: Noise Pollution Clearinghouse
Resource Type: Article
Noise is caused by people and businesses claiming rights, usually property rights, to emit noise into the air, and by people who do not possess the civility to be good neighbors. While its effects are an environmental health issue, its causes are tied to the issues of sovereignty (who owns the air?) and civility (how should we treat our neighbors?).
