The article asserts that energy and climate change issues might be the easiest topics for U.S. President Barack Obama and Chinese President Hu Jintao when the latter visits the U.S. in January 2011. According to the author, the cooperation between the two countries regarding emissions already started during a summit in Cancun, Mexico. Political analysts stated that these issues are the least contentious since both countries have already extracted mutual promises from each other regarding clean technology trade and emissions reductions.
