CAN Europe Fossil Fuel Subsidies Money

Introduction

European countries have all agreed to scale up their efforts to tackle climate change. Still, governments and other public institutions all over Europe are spending billions of euro on funding what is causing climate change: the extraction and burning of fossil fuels. By providing subsidies - (your!) tax money - to fossil fuels, governments end up taking one step forward and two steps back when it comes to climate action.

Fossil Fuel subsidies make no sense

Subsidising fossil fuels makes no sense. It stands in the way of increasing support for climate action across Europe, causes enormous harm to the environment and contributes to disease and premature deaths. It also drains public money away from important public services such as clean energy, education and health care. Still, governments and other public institutions are stubbornly doling out these subsidies to dirty industry, refusing to put an end to them.

All their efforts to provide the dirtiest, deadliest and most hypocritical support to fossil fuels deserve some well earned public recognition so that we can increase the pressure to phase them out.
