Historic climate bill passes House in a close vote

The House of Representatives on Friday voted 219 to 212 to take historic steps to reduce the heat-trapping gases building up in the atmosphere and gradually shift America to cleaner sources of energy. However, the measure is still a long way from becoming law. The Senate now will work out its own version, and the results of a planned vote there this fall are uncertain.
