END ALL SUBSIDIES FOR FOSSIL FUELS!






A new International Monetary Fund (IMF) study shows that US$5.2 trillion was spent globally on fossil fuel subsidies in 2017.
The equivalent of over 6.5% of global GDP of that year, it also represented a half-trillion dollar increase since 2015 when China ($1.4 trillion), the United States ($649 billion) and Russia ($551 billion) were the largest subsidizers.

Fossil Fuels Receive $5.3 Trillion A Year In Subsidies Worldwide, May 22, 2015
The world pays $5.3 trillion a year in hidden costs to keep burning fossil fuels, according to a new report from the International Monetary Fund (IMF). This is in addition to the $492 billion in direct subsidies offered by governments around the world — write-offs and write-downs and land-use loopholes.

How Large Are Global Energy Subsidies?




July 14, 2016
According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), in 2014
fossil-fuel subsidies of various sorts added up to a staggering $493 billion worldwide
far more than those for the development of renewable forms of energy. The G-20 group of leading industrial powers agreed in 2009 to phase out such subsidies, but a meeting of G-20 energy ministers in Beijing in June failed to adopt a timeline to complete the phase-out process, suggesting that little progress will be made when the heads of state of those countries meet in Hangzhou, China, this September.


Biggest economies still backing fossil fuels, Nov 12, 2015
Analysts say the world’s 20 leading economies give nearly four times as much in subsidies to fossil fuel production as total global subsidies to renewable energy.
The governments of the world’s major industrialised countries, the G20 group, are providing more than US$450 billion a year to support the production of fossil fuels.



OECD-Studie: Staaten fördern Öl, Gas und Kohle statt Klimaschutz, 21.09.15
Der Klimaschutz steht hinten an: International subventionieren die Staaten weiterhin fossile Energien - dabei könnten sie das Geld viel besser für den Klimaschutz verwenden. Das geht aus einer Studie der OECD hervor.

Bis zu 178 Mrd Euro steckten die Staaten jährlich noch immer in Kohle, Erdgas und Erdöl. Doch statt weiterhin fossile Energieträger zu subventionieren, bräuchten die Staaten das Geld im Kampf gegen den Klimawandel. Zu diesem Ergebnis kommt eine Studie der OECD.

In der EU erhält die Kohlewirtschaft inzwischen jährlich fast zehn Milliarden Euro Steuergelder. Das meiste gibt's in Deutschland.
Every year, the coal industry in the EU receives nearly 10 billion euros of taxpayers' money. Germany contributes the biggest amount.

In 2011, fossil fuels subsidies amounted to $523 billion globally, up almost 30% from 2010
and six times greater than subsidies for renewable energy.

Fossil fuel subsidies five times greater than climate finance

Rich Countries Spend Five Times More On Fossil Fuel Subsidies Than Climate Aid
In 2009, world leaders at the G20 summit agreed that phasing out fossil fuel subsidies should be a top priority. Three years later, with very little progress on actually repealing those subsidies, promises for reform ring hollow.

Rich countries spent $58 billion on fossil fuel subsidies in 2011. That’s roughly five times the amount they spent on “fast start” financing for climate adaptation and mitigation in developing countries, according to an analysis released today at the Doha climate talks by Oil Change International. The average yearly commitment from developed countries for climate financing over the last three years was $11 billion — a fifth of what they spent to support the fossil fuel industry. “What this analysis shows is that governments gathered in Doha to supposedly fight climate change need to put their money where their mouths are,” said Oil Change International’s Executive Director Stephen Kretzmann in a statement. “It should be plainly obvious that you can’t solve a problem when you’re spending vastly more to continue creating it than you are to fix it.” Fossil fuel subsidies have become an important fight in the climate advocacy world. Measures that encourage inefficient use of energy, such as fossil fuel subsidies, must be eliminated. In the U.S., the fossil fuel subsidy issue may again take center stage. During the campaign, President Obama called for repealing $4 billion in yearly tax breaks for the top oil companies.

Das Märchen vom teuren Ökostrom
, 06.11.12
Wind, Wasser und Sonne liefern schon heute die Energie billiger als Atom- und Kohlekraftwerke. Die hohen Subventionen für konventionelle Erzeuger, die nicht auf der Stromrechnung erscheinen, müssen die Steuerzahler tragen.





... So wurde
- Atomstrom seit 1970 mit mindestens 187 Milliarden Euro gefördert,
- Energie aus Stein- und Braunkohle mit 177 Milliarden beziehungsweise mit 65 Milliarden Euro.
- Im Vergleich dazu kommen erneuerbare Energien gerade einmal auf 54 Milliarden Euro. ...

Konzerne erhalten Milliardensubventionen für Ölprojekte
Laut einer Studie profitieren ausgerechnet Energiekonzerne von den massiven Subventionen. Die führenden Industrie- und Schwellenländer subventionieren die Erkundung von Ölvorkommen mit 71 Milliarden Euro pro Jahr - und untergraben damit ihre eigene Klimapolitik.
Die größten Beträge kommen aus Großbritannien, Russland, den USA und Australien.
Allein Washington hat Öl- und Gaskonzernen im vergangenen Jahr 5,1 Milliarden Dollar (4,1 Milliarden Euro) zur Unterstützung der Erkundung von Vorkommen gezahlt. Dies sei doppelt so viel wie 2009 gewesen.
Die Autoren der Studie kritisierten auch Investitionen staatlicher Konzerne als eine besonders verbreitete Form der Subvention in Ländern wie Brasilien, China, Indien, Mexiko, Russland und Saudi-Arabien. Demnach reichte die Unterstützung von zwei bis fünf Milliarden Dollar in Russland, Mexiko und Indien bis zu neun Milliarden Dollar in China, elf Milliarden in Brasilien und 17 Milliarden in Saudi-Arabien.
Die direkten oder versteckten Subventionen seien eine "öffentlich finanzierte Beihilfe für kohlendioxidintensive Konzerne" zum Schaden der erneuerbaren Energien, heißt es in der Studie.
Ohne die Subventionierung der Erkundung der Ölvorkommen und weitere Hilfen wäre ein Großteil der heutigen Öl- und Gasförderprojekte nicht profitabel.

The Fossil Fuel Industry Spent More Than $721 Million During 2014’s Midterm Elections
The 2014 midterm elections saw a wave of Republican candidates elected and re-elected to federal office, many of whom are now rearing to make the environment their first casualty of the 114th Congress. As it turns out, the fossil fuel industry may have had something to do with that.
