Abstract [en]

Green governmentality has been elaborated upon differently by various authors. Sometimes constructed as an intentional form of liberal rule where states implement science to become individual responsibilities, and at other times green governmentality is conceived as systematizing more indistinct formations of knowledge. There is also a difference between those within a more regulative perspective and those who apply a processual view, who would rather stress what biopolitics, security and species is becoming, as a mutational form of how 'life itself' is possible to politicize. Since most empirical investigations about green governmentality take the economic as a powerful predefined entity, this paper rather presents how talk on climate change links governing and governed to produce self-regulation through everyday activities that supports economic processes as an operationalization of government at a distance.
