Obama’s attitude towards the environment creates hope that the US will be more supportive of green issues. The upcoming Copenhagen summit could end in great success. To this end, the US should first secure cooperation with Europe and then both should focus on consulting and including the BRICS.in BusinessWeek EMMANUEL DUNAND/AFP/GETTY IMAGES

The Copenhagen Summit is a crucial date for the international community, whose outcome will determine the future possibilities of global cooperation against climate change. This date is obviously a challenge for the EU since they consider themselves at the forefront of innovation, but this will be also be a huge challenge for Obama in light of his very ambitious environment. Yet, before an agreement is reached, he will have to restore trust with the EU and secure its cooperation, to stand united against more skeptical countries; the BRICs (Brazil, Russia, India, China).
