Every year fossil fuels get six times as much money in subsidies from the U.S. government -- i.e. you, the taxpayer -- than renewable energy.

The president whose State Department thanked Exxon executives for their "active involvement" in helping to determine climate change policy is watching the town in which he grew up squirm in the grip of Texas' epic, climate change-enhanced drought.
Climate activist Tim DeChristopher, still serving his sentence for disrupting a government auction of oil leases, has been transferred to isolated confinement. He’s been there since March 9.
