The new carbon economy

Auteurs :
BOYD, E.
BOYKOFF, M.
NEWELL, P.

Description :
Many of the essays focus on the materiality of carbon : its physical properties and how this affects its enrolment into the global circuits of capital. Many contributions highlight the need to take seriously the biophysical properties of carbon. These properties may give rise to new governance challenges (in terms of commodification, measurement and exchange) or produce distinct forms of socio-ecological relations. There is a focus on the scalar politics of the new carbon economy and the specific governance challenges it generates. There are claims of the uneven development that results on the ways in which carbon is commodified.
