The U.S.-European relationship has evolved into a partnership that stretches well beyond the Atlantic area to address global challenges such as the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, radical extremism, the rise of China, global poverty, and health issues. Climate change is becoming a part of that list as well, although this phenomenon is fairly new. The difficulty in forging transatlantic cooperation on this issue is that Europe and the United States are addressing it at different speeds and in different ways.
