dc.description.abstractDrawing on ethnographic research in Houston, Texas, I contribute novel ethnographic insights into how oil and gas experts understand notions of value. I show that prevailing notions of value are normatively defined in economic terms and closely tied to understandings of an American ‘way of life’. Questions of value, I suggest, reveal our idiosyncratic and shared ethical orientations toward what we think is important and the futures we are fighting to create. The climate crisis, as such, is not a crisis of emissions or hydrocarbons, but a crisis of the ways value is assigned to worldly things. I conclude by arguing that until we address questions of value we are unlikely to address the existential crisis of anthropogenic climate change.
