Climate urgency.

Top line: 70% of Americans support the U.S. working to reduce climate change, finds a new CBS News/YouGov poll. And 69% of Americans who experienced extreme weather think it should be done right now.

Meanwhile, 34% of Americans who have not experienced extreme weather say climate change should be addressed right now. Key takeaway: extreme weather at home drives people's sense of climate urgency.
