America’s sweetheart Ms Taylor Swift has responded to the claims that she’s been dumping shit-tonnes of carbon dioxide into the air with her private jet usage. I dunno what to believe anymore.
Digital marketing agency Yard released a sustainability study focused on which celebs are using their private jets the most last week and Swift sat at the very top of the list. She just loves a #1 hit!
The company used data from Celebrity Jets to present their rather startling stats.
“Taylor’s jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals,” a spokesperson for the “All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor’s Version) (From the Vault)” singer told E! News via an official statement.
“To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect.”
So no, we can’t blame Swift for pumping all those tonnes of carbon into the atmosphere but still, whoever is using her jet really wants to create a “Cruel Summer” for all of us.
Yard alleged that the average flight time of Swift’s private jet was 80 minutes and the shortest record flight was 36 minutes.
The total time spent in the air was a whopping 15.9 days across 170 flights.
The company also found that celebs have produced an average of 376.64 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions each in 2022. And we’re in August. August!
While Kylie Jenner was rightfully slammed for using her private jet to make 17-minute flights, it turns out she’s not even one of the worst offenders. According to Yard, Jenner is 19th on the list for private jet-induced carbon emissions.

Taylor sharing her private jet with all her friends goes some of the ways to explaining her 8,293.54 tonnes of carbon emissions but still. Eat all the private jets.

Taylor Swift makes history as this year’s artist with the most CO2 emissions. She is the first female musician to do so 🏆 https://t.co/gJrdWXwkKU— Paul McCallion (@OrangePaulp) July 29, 2022
taylor swift polluting the earth by using a private jet once every 2 days so there’s no more ‘salt air’ for swifties to talk about— gab (@fkalwigs) July 29, 2022
The rest of the top 10 list includes Floyd Mayweather, Jay-Z, A-Rod, Blake Shelton, Steven Spielberg, Kim Kardashian, Mark Wahlberg, Oprah Winfrey and Travis Scott.
Some of these flight times are honestly just absurd: Oprah’s jet apparently took a 14-minute flight in California. Floyd Mayweather’s took a 10-minute flight and Steven Spielberg’s took an 18-minute flight. Flight times of under 20 minutes? Once again, I am politely requesting these people look into electric cars or like, the bus.
“Abolish private jets” is my new personal manifesto. No one needs a fucking private jet. And no private jet needs to take well over 100 trips every year — that’s simply absurd.
Celebrities are the ones with the money and power to actually make meaningful changes when it comes to protecting the environment. Put those millions of dollars somewhere useful, please!
I guess the rich and famous legit do not care about the climate because they’re the only ones who can afford not to.
How am I supposed to live out my Folklore forest fantasy if the forests are on FIRE?
