The fossil fuel industry receives a combined $5.3 trillion per year in subsidies from governments across the world. This is a cost incurred by the taxpayer before the taxpayer even pays for the energy itself. As Lord Nicholas Stern notes, these subsidies "distort markets and damage economies." If you are on the fence about renewable energy technologies, you might want to reconsider your position.
