Top celebrities, and planet's biggest polluters

After a study carried out by Yard, the list of the ten celebrities that have produced the most carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions due to their private jet trips was released. The data is collected after analyzing more than 1,500 flights made from the beginning of this 2022 to date. The singer Taylor Swift occupies the first place.

According to Yard, the celebrities who have analyzed this year have emitted an average of 3,376 tons of CO2 with their private planes, which translates into about 482.37 tons more than what a single person emits on a commercial flight (about seven tons). And the average duration of their flights has been 71.77 minutes

The American artist would have made 170 flights this year and has accumulated 22,923 minutes in the air, that is, 15.9 days, according to data that Yard has obtained from CelebJets, the account that tracks the movements of famous planes.

According to the report, emissions from Swift’s device amount to 8,293 tons. Her shortest flight was 36 minutes, from Missouri to Nashville. Yard pointed out that the objective of her report is to focus on the “disproportionate” environmental impact of the use of these private transports.
