How much subsidies does the fossil fuel industry get each year?


Google is your friend.

The fact is that your fossil fuels are not as cheap as they appear. Funny, U.S. electricity generation from renewable energy exceeded coal for the first time in April 2019, under the Trump administration. This was despite the fact that the Trump administration basically removed all regulation on coal, gas and oil. If the free market is allowed to operate without government intervention (aka subsidies) renewable energy will replace fossil fuels.
