Recently, the pop singer came under fire after being crowned the NUMBER ONE celebrity with the most and worst private jet carbon emissions.
Last week The Blast filled you in on the top celebrities that are helping speed up climate change and greatly pollute the earth.
Taylor Swift Is The Top Celeb Polluting The Earth With CO2 Emissions
The entire private jet conversation started after Kylie Jenner uploaded a photo of her and Travis Scott standing in front of their private jets
She captioned the photo, “You wanna take mine or yours?”
Kylie’s private jet took off from Camarillo, CA. to Van Nuys, CA. Driving from Camarillo to Van Nuys is about a 45-minute drive depending on traffic. Flying that route privately takes only 17 minutes.

The cosmetics mogul lives in Hidden Hills, CA. which is 25.6 miles away from Camarillo, CA. and a 29-minute drive depending on traffic.
Now here’s the kicker… Van Nuys, where Kylie flew into, is 15.6 miles away from Hidden Hills and a 29-minute drive.
So, Kylie drove out of her way to fly 17 minutes to Camarillo, CA.
Kylie Got The Private Jet Emissions Conversation Started
According to a marketing agency called “Yard,” celebrities including Kim, Floyd Mayweather and Blake Shelton’s private jet trips have been polluting the air with the tons of CO2e this year alone.
Sadly, TSwift is the one celebrity who has done it the most.
Yard’s website states, “We wanted to find out which celebrities have clocked up the most carbon emissions from private jet travel since the beginning of 2022. We’ve researched over 1,500 flights to find out, here’s what we found.”
They scraped data from “Celebrity Jets” to measure the “top celebrity offenders.”
Taylor’s Private Jet Has Emitted The Most Carbon This Year Alone
Yard’s data reveals that the top celebs have emitted an average of 3376.64 tonnes of CO2 emissions in just their private jet usage in 2022 so far.
Per the outlet, “Average flight times came in at just 71.77 minutes with an average of 66.92 miles travelled per flight.”
Swift is among the top with 170 private flights since January. Her says spent in the air averages out to about 16 days.
Her flights emitted 8,293.54 tonnes in the past seven months.
Calculations show TSwift’s private jet emissions totaled 1,184.4 times more than the average person’s total annual (yearly) emissions.
Now, Taylor’s team is hitting back at the shocking claims.
Taylor’s Team Says She Loans Out Her Private Jet
In a statement to Buzzfeed News, Taylor’s spokesperson stated, “Taylor’s jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals. To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect.”
Despite her team doing damage control, their explanation just wasn’t good enough for some on Twitter.
“Shes still contributing to it by letting ppl use it,” one person pointed out.
“Climate criminal” another said, while this person wrote, “just excuses.”
“This does not make it any better,” another echoed
Taylor Isn’t The Only ‘Climate Criminal.’
Other private jet pollution partygoers include Jay-Z, A-Rod, Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg.
