The report, prepared with the support and approval of 13 federal agencies, and with input from hundreds of government and non-governmental experts, provides an comprehensive look at how climate change will impact the United States.
Climate change is already hurting the global economy and will cost the U.S. hundreds of billions of dollars annually by century's end unless drastic action is taken to cut carbon emissions, a major USA government report warned on Friday.
"Unbelievably deadly and tragic wildfires rage in the west, hurricanes batter our coasts - and the Trump administration chooses the Friday after Thanksgiving to try and bury this critical US assessment of the climate crisis", Gore said in a statement Friday. A White House spokeswoman said the assessment was "based on the most extreme scenario", although the report explores the differences in the impacts of climate change based on pollution levels and other factors.
This week's United State report, although issued when most people were with their families and not paying attention, drew people to the reality of climate change.
Al Gore says it's no coincidence that the Trump administration released a damning report on climate change on a day when Americans are more preoccupied with snagging the best deals for TVs than they are with the future of the planet. "That being said, all hope is not lost, but we must act now".
Trump has long said he distrusts the consensus by almost all the world's respected climate scientists on the link between human activity and rising temperatures, as well as other damaging climate change phenomena. "As a climate scientist it is nearly surreal".
"So, to say that because it's cold this week [that's] a refutation of climate change, it's just flawed".
Meanwhile, China, along with a dozen other Asian economies, continue to grow their industrial capacity without too much of a climate change debate.

Carlisle was moved that month to head Cadillac, the global automaker's luxury vehicle division as part of a management rotation. He said the decision to halt sales of the Chevrolet Cruze had "nothing to do with tariffs" but was because of poor sales.
"We live in our drought, our floods and our heat waves".
The Trump administration has pursued a pro-fossil fuels agenda. "Instead, the evidence consistently points to human activities, especially emissions of greenhouse or heat-trapping gases, as the dominant cause".
The Lower 48 states have warmed 1.8 degrees (1 degree Celsius) since 1900 with 1.2 degrees in the last few decades, according to the report.
The National Academy of Sciences reviewed the report, and one of the members said this: "We have wasted 15 years of response time".
He also gave a lukewarm reaction to publication of a major United Nations report warning in October of global warming-caused chaos, saying "I want to look who drew it, you know, which groups drew it, because I can give you reports that are fabulous and I can give you reports that aren't so good".
Trump says, "I don't believe it".
Former vice-president and Democratic presidential candidate Gore accused Trump of seeking to "hide the truth" by releasing the report on Black Friday.
