I Googled "Energy Subsidies" looking for info on the $4BB subsidy claimed above. Here's the TRUTH from Wikipedia: "A subsidy is an actual payment from the government. Oil companies do not receive payments from the government, rather, they have specifically defined means of recapturing costs via tax credits. This is no different for oil companies than it is for any other business where a cost is incurred."
The latest justification for extending the industrial wind electricity production tax credit (PTC) is that we need an “all of the above” energy policy. The slogan falls flat, even when it’s expanded to “all of the above and below” – which is rarely the case with radical environmentalists and “progressive” politicians, who steadfastly oppose “any of the below” (ie, hydrocarbons).

America needs an “all of the sensible” energy policy. If an energy option makes sense - technically, economically and environmentally - it should be implemented. If it flunks, it should be scrapped.
