When it comes to alternative energy, governments worldwide aren’t putting their money where their mouths are.

Oh sure, they like to travel to nice places like Copenhagen, shake hands all around, and make important statements about developing alternative energy sources, getting away from fossil fuels, etc.

Now an article in the Guardian tells us that overall, governments are subsidizing the oil and gas industry at ten times the rate for alternative energies. And this is at a time when those fossil fuel giants are making more money they can count.

In another bit of silliness, Saudi Arabia is threatening to demand compensation if demand for oil drops off due to any climate deal.
