The world’s biggest and most profitable fossil fuel companies are receiving huge and rising subsidies from US taxpayers, a practice slammed as absurd by a presidential candidate given the threat of climate change.
US taxpayers subsidizing world’s biggest fossil fuel companies

No wonder not much is being done with renewable energy. Can't go against your biggest contributors. I really don't understand why they are being subsidized, they make billions. Need to spend that money on our infrastructure, developing renewable energy before we are all choking on the air, our crops fail regularly because of climate change or can't find clean water.
