Taylor Swift, Drake and the Kardashians among worst celebrity private jet environment polluters

A 2022 scientific survey for the year alleges that only few celebrities emitted an average of 3376.64 tonnes of CO2 emissions in just their private jet usage which has severely perturbed the fans and the environmentalists.

Some celebrity specific analysis of CO2 emissions from avoidable private jet usages are as follows:

  • Taylor Swift (8,293.54 tonnes of CO2 emissions)
  • Floyd Mayweather (7,076.8 tonnes of CO2 emissions)
  • Jay-Z (6,981.3 tonnes of CO2 emissions)
  • A-Rod (5,342.7 tonnes of CO2 emissions)

  • Oprah Winfrey (3,493.17 tonnes of CO2 emissions)
  • Travis Scott (3,033.3 tonnes of CO2 emissions)

Members of the Kardashian family and Drake are also reported to be among the top environment polluters when it comes to taking disproportionately-polluting short flights on private jets, according to survey.

Kim Kardashian’s private plane made four flights of under 20 minutes in the past two months, according to data from celebrity flight-tracker @CelebJets. The private plane belonging to her half-sister, Kylie Jenner.

These incidents of celebrities using private jets for very small distances have triggered a serious environmental debate and highlighted other celebrities using private jets for small distances that can be covered by commercial flights and other alternatives putting lesser burden of pollution on the environment.

According to the sources Taylor Swift is the biggest celebrity CO2 polluter this year, with 170 flights since January. So far, she has amassed a vast 22,923 minutes in the air (15.9 days).
