Civil society statement on energy access and public financing of fossil fuels
Policy comments | 6 May 2010

These subsidies fuel overconsumption in wealthy countries, benefit an already highly profitable and well-established industry, and exacerbate many of the most urgent problems facing humanity today, not the least of which is climate change.
