Addicted To Carbon

Last week i showed ACF's comparison of the enormous fossil subsidies compared to tiny climate change funding. The people at Crikey have researched the same information for each year going back to 1997. The red is pollution subsidies, the green is climate change programs.

Sadly, it's only getting worse, as the subsidies for pollution and wasting fuel increase at a rapid rate - much faster than the tiny amount of funding for programs to tackle climate change.

By the way, those amounts are in millions of dollars, so the tallest red bar is just over 12 billion dollars!
