Thanks to jet travel, Elon Musk only takes 9 minutes to get from San Jose to San Francisco.
Elon Musk used a private jet to fly from San Jose to San Francisco over the weekend. The online community has stoned this billionaire because of the huge carbon emissions that the flight has caused.
Specifically, over the weekend, the social network Twitter spread the flight route map of Tesla CEO Elon Musk. The total distance traveled by the billionaire is 35 miles (56.3 km).
The person who posted this information is Hayden Clarkin, a road traffic engineer. The Twitt line shows Hayden’s irony at Elon Musk’s actions.
“Unbelievable, I have no words to say. Why doesn’t he go with his Tesla electric car, if he goes by road, it takes at most 40 minutes.” Hayden added.
Journalist Ken Klippenstein of The Intercept immediately had a line of twitts for Elon Musk:
“Tesla was born to protect the environment, protect the earth from climate change”, accompanied by an image of the flight map.
Funny is that Elon Musk a lot of times propagating about environmental protection issues.
In 2018, Elon Musk wrote on Twitter that:
“All humanity should join hands, this is an issue that deserves attention, let’s protect the environment.”
But it seems that what he is doing is completely contrary to what he once said.
Jack Sweeney, a young college student, has set up a Twitter account named ElonsJet that provides and updates Elon Musk’s flight schedule. Even, Elon Musk once had to “bribe” this guy $ 5,000 to ask Jack to stop disclosing his flight information due to security concerns. However, it appears that the transaction failed and Elon Musk declined to comment further.
Elon Musk is not the only celebrity for using his private jet indiscriminately. TV star Kylie Jenner was once considered a “climate criminal” when she made a super short flight in … 3 minutes. There are also many other names such as Oprah Winfrey, Taylor Swift, Floyd Mayweather, ….
