WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Tuesday urged lawmakers to put a price on carbon pollution in an upcoming Senate energy bill, but a meeting at the White House ended with no consensus, according to some senators and congressional aides.

Senate Democratic leaders are aiming for July to debate legislation that would encourage more use of clean, alternative energy sources, such as power from wind, solar and biomass. That measure also is likely to clamp down on offshore oil drilling practices after the unprecedented BP Plc oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
