Carbon ReCAPTCHA A pun upon the complex moral philosophy of the Carbon Capture industry coupled with the seeming objectivity of Google's user authentication (/ thinly veiled mass machine learning tool) reCAPTCHA.

Rather than exploiting human cognition to covertly train the digitisation projects of Google Books and Google Self Driving Car initiatives, Carbon ReCAPTCHA attempts to untangle the knotty technical and moral complexities of defining sources of carbon emissions. Is a t-shirt a source of carbon emission? How about an asphalt road? Or a child? Is the charging electric car exempt and the parked petrol car guilty or vice-versa? What logic might machine learning make of what it is perceives that we perceive?
