Summary "Climate and Energy Politics in Poland: Debating Carbon Dioxide and Shale Gas presents a new, object-oriented perspective on the challenge faced by the largest post-socialist EU Member State from Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), Poland, to produce knowledge about its energy system in the context of climate change. Drawing on data from five different research projects and two hundred interviews, Lis reflects on how EU accession forced Poland to mobilise their resources and produce expertise on carbon dioxide and shale gas, so that they might actively participate in the debates around EU climate change ambitions and goals. Significant lack of capacity and expert institutions made it difficult for Poland to quickly assess the impacts of EU legislation or to propose new solutions itself, and it is precisely this struggle for knowledge production that will be examined over the course of the book. This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of energy and resource politics, climate change, EU environmental policy and CEE studies more broadly"-- Provided by publisher
