Ending Fossil Fuel Subsidies the Wrong Way Could End Up Hurting the Poor
Staff | truthout.org | 2020-02-23
Among progressives concerned about climate change, few issues provoke as much anger as the knowledge that governments continue to subsidize fossil fuels.

Corporate media's inadequate attention, and unwillingness to truly call out the moneyed interests causing present and future harms, make them more often part of the problem than the solution.
