Why We Should End Handouts to Oil and Gas Companies


04-06-2012  •  http://motherjones.com, By Bill McKibben 
This story first appeared on the TomDispatch website.
Along with "fivedollaragallongas," the energy watchword for the next few months is: "subsidies."

Left out were coal and natural gas, and you won't be surprised to learn that even then it didn't pass.
