or is it because we can't easily divide it?

Considering all these conditions above wouldn't it make sense to say we all have an inalienable right to equal access to air in it's purist form which is part of the commons and that this right is based on our equal right to life. Plus, that no one has the right to take more than their share (in the form of pollution) because by breathing in the pollution that would deny someone their equal access rights to air in it's unaltered state?
