The vote on the Climate Bill is also a commitment made by President Barack Obama to commit the United States in joining the supporters of Climate Change prevention and lead the way in curbing harmful gases which destroys the earth.
"Today's razor-thin vote in the House spells doom in the Senate," Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., the top Republican on the Senate's environment panel, said in a statement issued after the vote.
Reid, D-Nev., was more optimistic.
"The bill is not perfect, but it is a good product for the Senate," Reid said. "Working with the president and his team, I am hopeful that the Senate will be able to debate and pass bipartisan and comprehensive clean energy and climate legislation this fall."
Supporters and opponents agreed that the legislation would lead to higher energy costs, but they disagreed vigorously on the impact on consumers.
