As Mediaite's Caleb Howe pointed out, Sen. NPR has set the cost more generally at "trillions upon trillions of dollars".

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".
