Taylor Swift’s Plane Leads Carbon Emissions List

If there’s truth in the adage that ‘art imitates life,’ per her 2010 song “Last Kiss,” when Taylor Swift sings “I ran off the plane, that July 9th,” nowadays the superstar singer likely finds herself running off the plane every other day of the year as well.

In order to track carbon emissions and find out the worst celebratory contributors to climate change, a recent study by the sustainability marketing agency Yard looked into the usage of private planes by celebrities  And when it came to CO2 emissions from their private jets, the superstar musician was at the top of the list.

According to Yard, Swift’s plane took off 170 times in the first 200 days of 2022, emitting 8,293.54 metric tons of carbon dioxide. Accounting for 22,923 minutes, or almost16 total days of airtime, the CO2 released into the atmosphere from Taylor’s private plane during these past 7 months is the equivalent to what 1,184 average people would emit in a year. The data was collected from the Twitter account, @CelebJets, which tracks celebrities’ jets.

In response to this ecological information that has since gone viral, Swift’s representatives have stated that the singer/songwriter isn’t responsible for all the flights.

​​”Taylor’s jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals,” said the pop star’s spokesperson in a statement. “To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect.”

The above comment notwithstanding, Taylor Swift owns the private plane.
