    House narrowly passes major energy-climate bill

    In a huge victory for the Obama Administration:


    House narrowly passes major energy-climate bill - Yahoo! News

    the Democratic-controlled House narrowly passed sweeping legislation Friday that calls for the nation's first limits on pollution linked to global warming and aims to usher in a new era of cleaner, yet more costly energy.

    The vote was 219-212, capping months of negotiations and days of intense bargaining among Democrats. Republicans were overwhelmingly against the measure


    Again...drawing a line in the sand, the Republicans show where they stand on the environment....as do the Democrats.

    Americans have a clear picture of which party they should vote for in the next election depending upon how they feel about the environment.

    Perfect thing to do while we're still struggling economically. (/irony).

    Is this the "cap and trade" bill? If so, we are SO screwed.

    While I don't know the specifics of this bill, given my personal opinions on related matters, I probably would have not supported it.

    If you "substantially renovate" your home then you have to upgrade it and all appliances to"international enrgy standards. I believe my home just dropped invalue by about $100,000. Yours too.

    Really? I don't see that in what I read so far.

    Break out a nice, cool, soothing cream and apply it to the hole that hurts the most.

    It was nice having a good paying job. Guess them days are over.

    Its nice to once again have a President that isn't afraid of Science.

    The rest of the world was passing us by due to the lack of efforts of the prior administration in advancing alternative energy. Even China is exporting more solar energy than we are right now. This bill is a step in the right direction.

    HR 2454 read the bill. This is in the 300 pages added at 3am this morning. Gov't will decide where to plant your trees, but don;t do it yourself. It must be done by a certified non-profit tree planting organization .(ACORN?)
