Infographic: What if solar got the same subsidies as fossil fuels?


Recommended Posts

There's a huge "Twitterstorm" going on today where people are calling on politicians and delegates at the Rio+20 conference to end fossil fuel subsidies. You can follow all the tweets using the #EndFossilFuelSubsidies hashtag.

Governments around the world are spending $1.4 billion per day to keep us all hooked on climate wrecking fossil fuels. Just imagine what we could do with those money instead. There are many ways to stop catastrophic climate change. One of the easiest ways is simply to end these subsidies.

So what if if solar power got the same subsidies as fossil fuels?
