"Climate: Shell, BP, Exxon Press EPA To Regulate Methane"

"HOUSTON — Three of the world's biggest oil companies are pushing for federal regulation of methane emissions from energy production, punctuated by a warning yesterday from BP CEO Bob Dudley.

'You may not know, a few days from now there will be a major global event that exemplifies what I'm talking about,' Dudley said to an audience of energy leaders at the CERAWeek by IHS Markit conference. 'Around the globe, tens of thousands of young people, maybe even hundreds of thousands, will take part in what is being called a youth-led climate strike.'

'These are young people on the cusp of being able to vote,' he continued. 'They're tomorrow's legislators, regulators, jurists, and consumers, of course.'"
