WASHINGTON (AP) ― Legislation imposing the first nationwide limits on the pollution blamed for global warming advanced in the House late Thursday, clearing a key committee despite strong Republican opposition.
The Energy and Commerce Committee approved the sweeping climate bill 33-25 after repeatedly turning back GOP attempts to kill or weaken the measure during four days of debate.
The panel's action increases the likelihood that the full House for the first time will address broad legislation to tackle climate change later this year. The Senate has yet to take up the issu

What a way to destroy America. Thanks Obuma.
This is bad very bad filthy Communists are really pushing it.
Did anyone hear anything about all homes will receive either a CO2 classification or certificate? I heard something about it but was not listening very well.
Absolute insanity. Not only isn’t there man made global warming, if there is then China, India and others fully plan to surpass us in CO2 production so crippling our economy will accomplish zero.
I was just thinking taxes were too low....
Waxman, Reid, Pelosi, Rangle, Franks and of course Obama will lead us into the new era of enlightenment and prosperity.
Whoever would have dreamed we would have to repel a communist takeover of our nation in our lifetimes? This is like a nightmare that never ends. I just cannot believe it.
Global warming is conceptual thing. Like cars that are today sold on the appeal to certain needs in self image (Even the advertising is near all conceptual), Global Warming is a marketed product that sells a feeling to people. of course when something becomes popular and gains momentum, politicians will eagerly throw themselves out front of the issue. Global Warming is no different than: The ozone hole, acid rain, the world running out of fresh water, the coming ice age.........
its painful to see the GOP failing to make a difference they are too slow and spineless to challenge obama Now they are concentrating on a investigation on pelosi they should focus on trying to make the public notice what the dems are trying to do to our country *rips hair out*
We need limits on the insanity that causes Democrats.
Oh, and by the way; CO2 isn't a pollutant. It's what plant life needs to live. Just thought I'd mention it.
CO2 is plant food. More CO2 in the atmosphere (right now it comprises .004 of the atmosphere, btw), more crops, more food, more ''renewable resources''.
The bullcrap these ''environmentalists'' spew is enough to give assorted forms of cancer to any given random rock.
what global warming??
been cooling for 12 years now, 27 year cycles someone was quoted on Limbaugh as writing?
Its a looters government.
No other word for it.
I just wish that the press weren't so incredibly dense. The headlines here should be something like "House votes to raise your electric bill by $500 per month", which would actually tell the average American something that he needs to know about this incredibly stupid idea.
