Everything you need to know about fossil fuel subsidies in one image.
A week ago we launched a hard-hitting new campaign at 350.org: an all-out push to end fossil fuel subsidies in the United States.
Well, that campaign has caught fire. Thousands of people are signing on every day -- take a minute to add your name: www.350.org/subsidies
Instead of telling you all the details about fossil fuel subsidies, I thought I’d share a few numbers that really make the case:
Watching that bottom number tick up with every passing second is pretty outrageous, but there’s good news: we now have an opening to end these taxpayer handouts to corporate polluters. A new poll revealed that 70% of Americans — including majorities of Democrats, Independents, and Republicans — support ending fossil fuel subsidies.
If you think it’s time we stopped giving billions of dollars to the companies that are polluting our air, super-heating our planet, and distorting our democracy, the most important thing you can do is sign on today and spread the word.
