In many ways, the draft regulation proposed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on June 2, 2014 is an historic feat. The scope of this article is to explain what this new piece of regulation entails and to highlight its pros and cons, as seen from a European perspective, however, without separating it from its domestic context. The article goes further to look into the impact that the EPA regulation could have, both on a national and international level , concluding that, if the US Presidential Administration plays its cards right, this could be the first significant step towards the United States joining international efforts towards fighting climate change.
