Stop Subsidizing Greenhouse Gas Polluters
Stop all federal subsidies to the fossil fuel industry and to the animal agriculture industry.
Twenty percent of the money saved should be used for tax breaks for the American people.
Fifty percent of the money saved should be used to subsidize nutrient dense plant foods that in addition to having a smaller carbon footprint also leave a smaller water footprint as well. In other words no subsidies for example to plant foods like almonds and avocados which use a lot of water. No subsidies to junk plant food like sugar or for corn used to make high fructose corn syrup.
Thirty percent of the money saved should be used to subsidize solar, wind, algaes and other promising renewable energy resources.
In short, instead of subsidizing polluters use 20% of that money for tax breaks, 50% to subsidize nutrient dense, non-water wasting plant foods and 30% to subsidize renewable energies.
Why is this important?
We need to stop incentivizing actions that cause climate change period. We need to stop subsidizing behaviour that wastes natural resources such as fossil fuels, water, land, air, trees etc.
We need to start incentivizing actions that will help us to begin to reverse climate change and conserve our natural resources.
