Fossil fuel subsidies have surged to a record $7 trillion in 2022.

With global temperatures reaching unprecedented levels, there is a growing consensus to reduce/abolish fossil fuel subsidies.

Not what the woods should sound like here at 1am on October 29. I should not be walking the dog in flip-flops, a tee shirt and shorts tonight I should not be able to.
