In response to a letter about Invenergy’s wind energy subsidies, I want to make sure readers are aware that fossil fuel companies also receive subsides.

I found a Subsidy Tracker website article titled “U.S. Taxpayers Subsidizing World’s Biggest Fossil Fuel Companies.” It states that "the coal, oil, and gas industries benefited from subsidies of $530 billion worldwide, according to 2013 World Bank data."

This is four times more than the subsidies for renewable energy! What would our energy infrastructure look like if we did away with all energy subsidies and paid the true costs of our energy choices?
