Although there isn't an official cost estimate on the Green New Deal, several columnists have put together loose appraisals based on the estimated costs of some component pieces.

His supporters in the meantime have been calling out the advocates of the proposal as hypocrites, who just pretend to care about climate while flying private jets, going as far as calling the Green movement "the new Red".
