US Senate passes landmark climate bill

Washington Correspondent

The US Congress is on the verge of approving an historic package of measures to tackle climate change, after senators agreed a $370 billion bill to slash America’s greenhouse emissions and move the country away from fossil fuels to greener, renewable energy.

If the House passes it later this week – it will aim to make significant cuts in harmful pollution by the end of the decade – and would be the biggest action on climate in US history.
