According to the latest research from Yard, Taylor Swift leads the list of entrepreneurs who use private jets to emit large amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the environment.
As a famous and talented American musician and singer, the fact that Taylor Swift owns a huge fortune and has a private jet is no longer a surprise for fans. Recently, according to research from Yard – a British digital marketing company, shows that the “country music queen” has the highest number of private jet use in the list of entrepreneurs who have a private jet from 1 to 1. January 1 to July 29, 2022 with 170 flights. Taylor Swift’s average flight time is 80 minutes with more than 139 miles per trip. Her flights emit 8300 tons of CO2, nearly 1200 times more than the total CO2 emissions of the average person each year.
When the information was published, many people criticized Taylor Swift that she was destroying the general air, a “climate criminal” when emitting such a large amount of CO2 into the environment. In response to mixed opinions, a spokesperson for Taylor Swift told Rolling Stone: “Taylor Swift regularly lends her private jet to others. It is incorrect to attribute almost all of the above flights to her.”
Before that, Taylor spoke a lot about environmental and climate issues while during her years of artistic activities she did not participate in speaking about political and social issues. However, she shared that climate change and the environment are among the issues she is very concerned about. Therefore, the use of private aircraft and the emission of a large amount of CO2 into the environment reminds people of what female musicians and singers have discussed before.
In the list given by Yard, besides Taylor Swift, boxing star Floyd Mayweather also had nearly 180 flights and loaded more than 7,000 tons of CO2. And some other names also appear on this list with high private jet usage and large CO2 emissions into the environment such as Mark Wahlberg, Steven Spielberg, Kim Kardashian, Jay-z…
