Surrounding global climate negotiation, major countriesin the world initiated a new round of competition.The EU and the USA have formed their own climate policies. Their respectivepolicies,as well as their contest for the leadership in global climate regime, provide anew and important perspective for the study of EU-US relations. This article reviewsthe development of climate policies of the EU and the USA, points out theirdivergences, and analyses the reasons from both inside and outside. Based ondifferent history and political and cultural traditions, the EU and the USA havedifferent ideas on sovereignty and social welfare;they have adopted distinctiveeconomic modes and have established different domestic political systems. Besides,the coexistence of unipolarity and multipolarity in the current international systemstimulates the EU to balance the USA.
