Distancing Minimizing Or Preventing A Nuisance

A principle common to all the mishnah verses we reviewed was the obligation to distance the nuisance to a place where it is no longer harmful. As clarified in the previous section, the distances set by the sages in the Mishnah are not dogmatic, and can alter according to time and place, as determined by professionals.

The above refer to modern-day local and public nuisances. However, when referring to global hazards, expert assessment can determine that the hazard shall not only be distanced, but occasionally also have its activity minimized39 and even prohibited altogether. This is due to the nature of a global perspective, which would naturally claim that the mere distancing of a nuisance is ineffective, since the issue is not damage to a local population but to world population and the world at large. Certain hazards cause the same degree of harm to the entire population. Therefore, the activity's damage versus its necessity should be weighed, and a decision made on the action needed, whether the activity should be removed, minimized, or prohibited entirely.
