Kylie Jenner recently took some heat from fans, after posting a Instagram photo touting her with boyfriend Travis Scott’s private jets. Criticism of the impact of using their planes on the environment is nothing new for the reality TV family – Kourtney Kardashian faced the same backlash earlier this year — but it has inspired a closer look at which celebrities are most guilty of dumping carbon emissions into the atmosphere. Turns out the beauty entrepreneur didn’t even make the top 10 on the worst offenders list, and it was none other than Taylor Swift who did the most damage with the use of her two planes. .
After the backlash over the post of the youngest of the Kar-Jenner sisters – and Kylie Jenner’s next trip to Target to perhaps sound more relevant – the sustainability marketing company Court decided to take a look at which celebrity private jets have flown the most so far this year, emitting the most carbon dioxide. Taylor Swift turned out to be by far the worst offender. The study reports that its jets have been in the air 170 times in 2022 through July 19 for a total of 22,923 minutes and 8,293.54 metric tons of flight emissions.
How does Taylor Swift’s jet use compare to other celebrities?
To put over 8,293 metric tons of carbon dioxide into perspective, Yard estimates that the average person emits a carbon footprint of 7 metric tons over the course of a year. Offender #2 in court study – Floyd Mayweather – issued 7,076.8 metric tons through July 19. The boxing legend reportedly averages 25 flights per month for a total of 177 flights this year, with the shortest flight being just 10 minutes.
Kylie Jenner’s activity may not compare to Taylor Swift and Floyd Mayweather, but her boyfriend Travis Scott was No. 10 on Yard’s list. (I guess we now know the answer to Jenner’s question, “Should we take mine or yours?”) The rapper’s 8,384 minutes of flight accounted for 3,033.3 metric tons of emissions, with a average flight time of only 7.31 minutes.
Kylie Jenner wasn’t her family’s worst offender
Even without counting her boyfriend, Kylie Jenner was not the worst offender of the Kar-Jenner clan. Kim Kardashian earns these honors as she recorded 4,268.5 metric tons of carbon emissions on 57 flights this year for No. 7 on the list. Hulu Subscribers had the full Kim Air tour The Kardashianswhen she showed off amenities like cashmere upholstery and custom light wood.
Who else made the list of the worst carbon dioxide emissions?
Jay-Z, A-Rod, Blake Shelton, Steven Spielberg, Mark Wahlberg and Oprah are other celebrities who enjoy life by traveling frequently on private planes. No big surprises there, although after Gwen Stefani described her husband’s ‘disgusting’ truck as a lot of “total rugged man stuff”, i’d be interested to see what his candle side looks like.
Will the results of this study ease the pressure on some billionaire makeup moguls and shine more of a spotlight on jet-set pop stars? Shouldn’t we be planning to take a ride on Kylie Jenner’s jet when The Kardashians returns to Hulu on September 22?
