    To a point. If you're say, in a park, and they were there first, moving to the place besides them (assuming they're not lighting up by you or whatever) means you're at fault, no them.

    See the usual stuff about nuisance law. (https://www.justia.com/real-estate/docs/nuisance/)

    Way more then I can really afford...
    A bit of a callback, but Living in Florida some years ago I remember heading out of Tampa on I-4 just as a shuttle launch went up. It seemed to be coming up directly in front of me, since it was a really clear day, and it could be clearly seen from East Tampa, just past 50th. St. Also, heard the double Sonic Booms during one of the landings while living in Gulfport, south St. Petersburg.
    Sadly, I also watched Challenger's last flight. The smoke trails lasted for a very long time in the sky that morning...

    I’d like that post but don’t want to look like I’m liking the Challenger disaster...

    Your examples don't really apply, so there is that. But, to stretch if I'm at a park and a smoker moves to the place next to me they would be prohibited by the second hand smoke laws. There is also the question of does the nonsmoker have the right to peaceful enjoyment of a public space without being harmed by others activities? Preventable diseases with permanent life long consequences are significantly different than moving in next to a dairy farm.

    Pro-diseasers are buried deep in conspiracy theory land. I had a conspiracy theorist coworker and I got to learn what made him tick. For him, conspiracy theory was his religion. He had no use for God, Jesus or any organized religion, according to him they are just conspiracies to control the common man. But, his conspiracy theories filled the same place in his heart as God does for believers. Religion and conspiracy are ways to explain the difficult to accept. How did a lone gunman kill Kennedy, must be a conspiracy. How did a giraffe come into existence, must be intelligent design. Some children are autistic, must be vaccines. Rather than looking at the facts as you know them at the time and going where they take you, they are a short cut to the place where belief is more important that fact.

    What's the solution for pro-diseasers? I don't care if they die, Darwin award and all. But, I do care when a Darwin award candidate takes innocent people with them.

    I think this phrase in itself is endemic of a bigger problem of not actually wanting discussion.

    Your examples don't really apply either, and we can analogy and/or slippery slope our way to oblivion. Ultimately, you're the one wanting to force people to do things, no matter how well intentioned you are. Which is policy and politics.

    Let's go back to science.

    It's an unproven hypothesis. No real evidence to validate.
