When US President Donald Trump announced he was pulling out of the Paris agreement, he said he was elected to represent "Pittsburgh, not Paris".
But what do Americans think is causing climate change, and what do they think should be done about it?
The latest polling suggests in withdrawing from global action on climate change, the president is out of sync with the thinking in his own country.
Americans believe climate change has already begun.
They believe humans are causing it.
More and more of them are worrying about it.
They disagree with Trump about how to spend their money.
Mr Trump's decision to back away from investing in renewables is totally in line with public opinion ... in 2012. Since then, the number of Americans who favour protecting the environment over producing energy supplies has jumped to 59 per cent, according to Gallup polling.
And they're more in favour of spending federal money on developing renewables than they are on opening up federal land for oil exploration.
Even Trump's voter base largely supports Paris.
Because conservative Republicans are the least likely to agree that climate change is caused by human activity, the president might be forgiven for thinking that his voter base will approve of his move:
But the Paris agreement is not as polarising as other climate change issues, and a recent poll by Yale University found that almost half of Mr Trump's supporters think the US should take part in the agreement.
The same poll found majority support for the Paris agreement in every US state, amongst the general voting population.
It found that seven in 10 registered voters (69 per cent) said the US should participate in the agreement, compared with only 13 per cent who said the US should not.
(In case you're wondering where Australians stand on the Paris agreement, some new research by the Climate institute suggests that a large majority of Australians — 87 per cent — support the agreement and do not want Australia to step back from its commitments).
Catastrophic climate change? Not in my lifetime.
But hang on, there is one poll that might give Mr Trump reason to think he's onto a winner: while Americans believe climate change is happening, many of them don't believe it will happen to them.
