Even if you don't care about the externalities, the direct cash subsidies are still 292 billion world wide, the point still stands that there are plenty of subsidies out there, for plenty of different industries, if you want to focus on one thats your business, but i dont think it makes much sense
A study by the University of Texas projected that U.S. energy subsidies per megawatt hour in 2019 would be $0.5 for coal, $1- $2 for oil and natural gas, $15- $57 for wind and $43- $320 for solar.
I don't like subsidies in general, but our country is obviously energy dependent, so to some extent they're a necessary evil. I wouldn't mind providing subsidies to renewable energy if they were more cost effective, but the technology isn't there yet.
