Trump insisted Monday the USA is "the cleanest we've ever been", and said other countries weren't keeping up.
Former GOP Rep. Tom Delay, whose Houston area was battered by Hurricane Harvey a year ago, called the National Climate Assessment "nothing more than ... an alarmist political document (written) by scientists that get paid to further the politics of global warming".
It says warming-charged extremes "have already become more frequent, intense, widespread or of long duration". In actual dollars, this means that by the end of the century, global warming and the damages it causes will cost the us more than $500 billion dollars.
"No, no I don't believe it", Trump added.
Trump's administration - through his EPA - has rolled back or repealed almost every climate policy former President Obama put into place, including greenhouse gas rules for power plants, cars and oil and natural gas drillers.
The Trump Administration's own National Climate Assessment serves as a sharp rebuke to its ill-advised policy of rolling back federal actions and regulations created to curb climate change.
"They grow things that we eat globally, so when we buy popcorn and when we go to buy bread or dairy, those are impacts on our bottom-line issues in our own homes".

I think they will". "For different reasons we missed Paul but that doesn't mean with Paul we win the game so it's not an excuse". People sometimes like to focus on the little problems in his performance, and we do the same.
The federal government's latest report on climate change warns of specific dangers to Midwest agriculture production, which comprises a significant portion of the economies of Kansas and Missouri.
Mr Trump responded, saying: "I don't believe it".
"The climate science is accepted science", Smith said.
Previous research, including from USA government scientists, has also concluded that climate change could have severe economic consequences, including damage to infrastructure, water supplies and agriculture.
Another impact of climate change will be on the health of Americans, whether because of extreme heat and higher temperatures, diseases (like Zika) that come from mosquitoes and ticks, more food and waterborne diseases, or higher risk of asthma and allergies.
"Earth's climate is now changing faster than any point in the history of modern civilization, primarily as a result of human activities", states the report, which comes after a recent alarm by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that humanity's opportunity for meaningful action may soon slip away.
The study also dives into what is causing all this climate change - us. And that, unless we change our practices and policies, there will be "substantial damages to the U.S. economy, environment, and human health and well-being over the coming decades".
Just days after demonstrating a lack of understanding about the difference between weather and climate, US President Donald Trump has remained mum on the report. But the consistent mishandling and misreporting by major news network talk shows has obfuscated the importance of the report.
