"Energy crisis cannot be solved by renewables, oil chiefs say". Times Online. 25 June 2007: "The ExxonMobil chief criticised the EU’s carbon trading system, calling it an administratively complex system that lacked transparency and failed to deliver a uniform and predictable cost of carbon. ‘It’s all about moving the money around,’ he said.
