You made a very serious allegation that " . . we have been subsidizing fossil fuels for a long time." Can you offer any validation to buttress your contention? Below is the "Dictionary" definition of "SUBSIDY" and I am unaware of any government subsidies provided for "fossil fuels" and will thank you in advance for your enlightenment in this matter. I will send this challenge to your whiteboard for expedition.
