Bernie Sanders unveils most extreme climate change plan of all 2020 Dems

He says the plan will ‘pay for itself’ in 15 years

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.) released a climate change plan Thursday that far exceeds the plans of other Democrats in both ambition and cost, according to the New York Times.

Sanders, who supported the infamous Green New Deal posted by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), gave his plan the same title and wants to eliminate fossil fuel use completely by 2050.

The Sanders plan carries a price tag of $16.3 trillion, including $200 billion committed to assisting poor nations in dealing with climate change and its impacts.

To show just how much pricier Sanders’ plan is than those of his fellow Democratic candidates, Joe Biden’s climate plan requires $1.7 trillion over 10 years, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) proposed a $2 trillion plan.

The ambitious plan could be an attempt by Sanders to position himself as the top climate change candidate in the Democratic primary, after Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington ended his climate change-focused bid this week.
