Democratic 2020 hopeful Bernie Sanders had introduced his new Green New Deal-like plan that he says will "create 20 million jobs," but the cost of his ambitious proposal is a staggering $16.3 trillion.

Socialist Sanders introduced his new "green" plan on Thursday that he promises will "avert climate catastrophe and create 20,000,000 jobs."

According to its outline, the plan aims to make American electricity and transportation energy 100 percent renewable by 2030.

Bernie claims that the United States can achieve “complete decarbonization” by 2050 if he's elected president next year.

“As President, Bernie Sanders will boldly embrace the moral imperative of climate change and mobilize the political will necessary for a wholesale transformation of our society, with massive investments in sustainable energy, energy efficiency, and a transformation of our transportation system,” his plan states.

According to the Daily Caller, Sanders' plan also states that it will “pay for itself over 15 years” by increasing taxes on fossil fuel companies, generating revenue from federal renewable energy.

It also aims to generate funding by collecting income tax from the 20 million jobs it aims to create.

Sanders’s website says a Green New Deal will “save American families money and generate millions of jobs by transforming our energy system away from fossil fuels to 100% energy efficiency and sustainable energy.”

It will also “protect workers and the communities in which they live to ensure a transition to family-sustaining wage, union jobs.”

Policies listed within the plan itself include moving the U.S. away from the fossil fuel industry and re-entering the Paris climate accord.

President Donald Trump said the U.S. will be formally removed from the Paris climate accord in 2020.

The plan also lists spending trillions of dollars to help workers in the fossil fuel industry, as well as minority communities, transition into a green-energy economy.

Other 2020 Democratic candidates including Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Beto O’ Rourke, and Cory Booker have also introduced climate change plans as part of their campaign platforms.

Others have also endorsed the Green New Deal plan introduced by Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
