Description :
This paper explores the ways in which biomass is framed within the carbon debate, interrogating the trade-offs and conflicts surrounding the production of dedicated and subsidized energy crops. Drawing upon a political ecology framework, the AA. seek to explore the difference that a specific energy crop, Miscanthus, makes in current debates over bioenergy. Taking a case study of a Yorkshire landscape long dominated by coal, they explore the context of recent developments in biomass energy.
