G20 poured more than £1tn on fossil fuel subsidies despite Cop26 pledges

The planet is burning up and dying, yet wealthy countries still countiuos to give trillions of dollars of taxpayers money to oil, gas and coal companies despite climate crisis. A report has found the G20 spend record levels of public money on fossil fuels last year despite pledging to cut some of it. The amount of public money flowing into coal, oil and gas in 20 of the worlds biggest economies reached a record of $1.4tn(£1tn)even as the world leaders agreed to phase out inefficient fossil fuel subsidies at Cop26 climate summit in glassgow two years ago.

      Leaders of the G20 must prioritize their commitments to the Paris Agreement and take tangible actions to phase out these harmful subsidies.
