Obama's last day in China

Top Story: U.S. President Barack Obama is on his third and final day of touring China. His meetings with President Hu Jintao and other leaders have focused on economic issues, and Obama plans to continue to press Chinese leaders for changes, particularly on currency, today. Obama leaves for Seoul, South Korea, where he will discuss North Korea policy, later this afternoon.

During one of many press conferences, Obama said he is close to a decision on the level of troops for Afghanistan. He also said he hopes the Copenhagen climate change conference "[rallies] the world."

Getting hotter: British scientists project the world's average temperature will rise 6 degrees Celcius by the end of the century.
