This chapter explores how the process of commoning offers a politics for the Anthropocene. It needs to step outside of the ways that the commons have generally been understood to reveal the political potential of communing. The chapter discusses the capitalocentric framing of the commons and raise concerns about how this framing limits the potential of commoning as a politics for the Anthropocene. Capitalocentrism names the way that a diversity of economic relations is positioned as either the same as subordinate to, or contained within 'capitalism'. The chapter discusses a predominant framing of commons as a 'thing' that is associated with publically owned or open access property. It focuses on three examples from the past and the present that provide insights into ways of commoning the atmosphere and reveals how a politics of commoning has been enacted through assemblages comprised of social movements, technological advances, institutional arrangements, and non-human 'others'.
