What is privileged in the measurement and the financialisation of ‘nature’ in units of carbon? Carbon policy treats intractably complex environments such as forests or shorelines as Cartesian spaces governed by reversible (timeless) time. Historical and geosocial critiques of institutional violence and power imbalances inherent to this environmental accounting is rarely put into question.

This conversation will consider some of the violence embedded in carbon-led accounting that directs climate policy, and how environmental accounting is employed to facilitate novel forms of intersectional surveillance, or bio- and data-piracy through such examples as Microsoft’s Offset Investments and the Earth Bank of Codes.
