As a long term play, it's about a stupid a strategy as you can have, from both an economic and environmental perspective.
How exactly do WE "invest" in dino energy? And the subsidy thing is mythological. If an oil company gets the same kind of tax deductions every other American industry gets, you suddenly call it a 'subsidy'
It's convenient, but not really accurate.
