Stop oil and gas subsidies

I have heard that governments shore up polluting industries, funding exploration for new extractive opportunities and, more recently, keeping them viable with bailouts. I have no way of knowing whether the Scottish Government has given these companies money to keep them going. If so, they are complicit in the unfolding climate catastrophe and must turn away from fossil fuels and direct funding towards renewable alternatives, training workers to transition into jobs that will help to preserve, not kill the planet.

Why the contribution is important

Partly because using public money to fund fossil fuels is immoral, but also because it's just wasting our resources by giving cash to rich shareholders who offer only detriment to our country.
