The number of adults who call global warming an urgent problem that needs immediate government action is about the same now as in June (41 percent versus 38 percent). Fewer call it a longer-term problem that needs more study -- 47 percent, compared with 58 percent in June; that's partly because more in this survey express no opinion.
