Celebrities have been flying in their private jets for years, but a recent study points to some of the celebrities most guilty of poisoning the planet.
According collected research by Yard, a marketing agency that focuses on “metrics that matter,” celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Floyd Mayweatherand Blake Shelton have polluted the air with tons of CO2e this year alone… but no one has done it more than Taylor Swift.
According to Yard, T. Swift has flown 170 private flights since January, with an air time of around 16 days. Its total flight emissions for the year are 8,293.54 tons, which is 1,184.8 times more than the total annual emissions of an average person!!!
To put it into perspective, they say the average person emits 7 tons – per year.
Mayweather comes in 2nd place in the pollution race… emitting 7,076 tonnes so far – still more than 1K below Taylor’s mark.
Jay Z, A rod, Steven Spielbergand Oprah Winfrey also made the list…and Floyd’s plane had the shortest flight of the year, at 10 minutes.
It’s interesting…the internet started talking about celebrities and their carbon footprint after Kylie Jenner posted about her and TS Private Jets last week, but she didn’t make the top ten list. Travis Scott took 10th place…flying a total of 5.8 days so far.
TMZ “Verified” Podcast recently chatted with Jack Sweeney – the student behind the popular CelebJets Twitter account that tracks celebrity jets – who told us exactly why he started the account.
