Among the running contenders of ‘who can pollute the planet the most?’, Taylor Swift, the talented singer makes a huge entry. Recent news revealed that Taylor Swift’s private jet seems to be getting more action than expected or wanted. The emissions have been calculated for all of her flights and the total amount is disturbing, to say the least.

No matter how much of an activist a celebrity can be. The records always come to disappoint their fans once their carbon footprints are revealed. Taylor Swift is no exception to this case as her records show her emissions to be the highest of all contenders as of now. She spent over 16 full days in the air this year if we account for the time taken in the air to be in a continuous manner, producing 8,293.54 tonnes of CO2, and flying 140 miles on average per flight, according to the study. This amount of emissions was also calculated to be an average US American expels within 550 years and more than a person from India in over 4,300 years according to a tweet. The singer might be talented with her vocals but not with her emissions.

One could argue that it is as hurtful as a lie when celebrities act so recklessly after preaching the opposite. The reasons that could be listed as to why the singer’s emissions are so high are stated as “Taylor [Swift]’s jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals. To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect.

As a defense for the singer, calculations also show that “Aviation is responsible for 2.4% of human-produced CO2e every year, and research shows a vast divide between the super-rich and the rest of us regarding flights, travel, and even general emissions. It’s easy to get lost in the dazzling lives of the rich and famous, but unfortunately, they’re a massive part of the CO2e problem we have with the aviation industry.

Yard’s sustainability director Chris Butterworth was the person behind these quotes as he lays out the facts and figures as they are.

No matter how the numbers may be displayed, Talyor Swift’s fans are quick to defend the singer. The singer’s fans take on to Twitter and attempt to shift the blame to corporations for the emissions that harm our planet. Some even went as far as to make exact calculations of the emissions the singer made.

With this kind of reckless activity that celebs are more openly pulling off, is it safe to say that they might be equal to the corporations who also ignore the cries of the public when it comes to harming the environment?
