Fossil Fuel Subsidies - Gross Exaggeration

"Typically, these fossil fuel subsidies lower prices below what they would be in a ‘free market’ and are used predominantly to lower the prices of fuel for transport, kerosene and gas used in homes, or fuels used by electricity generators and domestic industries (GSI, 2010). The figure cited most widely for fossil fuel subsidies is $630 billion in 2012"

So, when it comes to fossil fuels, the Bloomberg article and the IEA are talking about consumer subsidies, paid by the State. In the case of OPEC, the main source of income that the State has is oil. So this is State oil companies subsidising consumers.

The report by Oil Change International is a complete distortion of facts. The authors have described as “subsidies” normal deductions of expenses and capital costs from revenues for calculation of taxable income. These are procedures which are followed in all fiscal systems in all countries for all forms of business and investment endeavors. Under normal definitions of “subsidy” the United States has no subsidies for the oil and gas industry which is why Obama has taken no steps to reduce them.  http://euanmearns.com/the-appalling-truth-about-energy-subsidies/


“The vast sum is largely due to polluters not paying the costs imposed on governments by the burning of coal, oil and gas. These include the harm caused to local populations by air pollution as well as to people across the globe affected by the floods, droughts and storms being driven by climate change.”  https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/may/18/fossil-fuel-companies-getting-10m-a-minute-in-subsidies-says-imf  

(They neglect the fact that fossil fuels have heated and lit our homes, powered our factories, reduced disease by replacing horses with cars and transformed the world from 18th century poverty to our current prosperity.  Further there is no economical replacement except nuclear which is “off the table.”)
