Yeah we're on the same pageI was being sarcastic. Kinda obviously I thought.
Whatever Trump said he did was either a lie or something someone else did but he took credit.
The thing he said other people did/were/are doing...... Were things he was doing/did himself but thought it would throw people off the trail if he said other people did it.
Notice.... Elon Musk was on one of his industry advisory boards for a while. Not that that is surprising, since Musk cozies up to both sides and swap political affiliation regularly to get as much gov. subsidies as possible for himself. Regardless.... Him and Trump are two peas in a pod, especially when you realize Trump's Daddy got wealthy off Government subsidies during the FDR administration, something the Family still uses considering the millions in Government kick backs they continue to get annually.
These people ARE the swamp.. they aren't going to ever drain it no matter what they say.
Ok, I don’t know why I am burning so much of my time on this because anyone could look it up (but that’s so much harder than parroting nonsense headlines)When you say miniscule, what would that be in the USA annually? A few hundred grand? A few million? A hundred million?
The Environmental and Energy Study Institute found that the US government alone spends $20 billion every year on direct fossil fuel subsidies. Of that figure, around $16 billion goes towards oil and gas, while the remaining $4 billion benefits the coal industry.
There is also data to suggest that the problem is getting worse rather than better. Between 2017 and 2019 production subsidies for fossil fuels grew by 28%.
