Erin Flanagan, director of federal policy for The Pembina Institute, said the American report helps to make the costs of climate change real to people.
"We're not saying that climate change is not real", the former SC governor toldNBC's "Today" show. "There are no alternative explanations, and no natural cycles are found in the observational record that can explain the observed changes in climate".
The final draft report, obtained by the Times, contradicts claims by President Trump and some in his administration who say that the link between global warming and humans is still unproven.
"I think that measuring with precision human activity on the climate is something very challenging to do and there's tremendous disagreement about the degree of impact, so no, I would not agree that it's a primary contributor to the global warming that we see", Pruitt told CNBC.
"Evidence for a changing climate abounds, from the top of the atmosphere to the depths of the oceans", the report said.
"It was uploaded to a nonprofit internet digital library in January but received little attention until it was published by The New York Times", the corrected NYT article reads.

"Just because we pulled out of the Paris accord doesn't mean we believe in climate production", Trump's ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said on NBC's Today show. According to the report, average temperatures in the US have risen dramatically since the 1980s, and the past few decades have been the warmest of the last 1,500 years.
It's getting hotter. Average annual temperatures in the U.S. have increased by 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit between 1901 and 2016. "If the administration is backing out of the Paris agreement and there's not a strong backing of the idea of human caused climate change, than our report will most surely come into conflict with some of those stated ideas".
The report stressed that the last 15 years was the warmest period recorded on Earth, and that the global temperature continues to rise gradually, surpassing previous annual records every year. Average sea levels around the world have risen by about seven to eight inches since the beginning of the 20th century, with about three of those inches occurring since 1993. In the USA, the report says the largest temperature increases have taken place in the West.
But the report is just as significant for the fact that despite being compiled by scientists from across the United States government, it had to be leaked for fear that it could be stifled by the White House. Almost 200 nations agreed as part of the Paris accords to limit or cut fossil fuel emissions.
