private jet CO2 emissions

These celebs had the top private jet emissions in the last year, and it’s not Taylor Swift

She didn’t even make the top 30

If there’s one way to make yourself feel better for getting that five-minute Uber back from a night out when it was pouring with rain, it’s take a look at the outrageous amounts of private jet CO2 emissions celebs have managed to rack up last year.

The website My Climate Tracker tracks uses private jet trackers to see how many kilometres the celebs have travelled over the year, and Instagram location markers to work out how many journeys they’ve taken.

And no, before you think Taylor Swift must be number one, she didn’t and didn’t even make the top 30. So without further ado prepare to feel horrified by how much these celebs produced in CO2 private jet emissions this year, ranked from highest to lowest.

10. Celine Dion

Our queen Celine has taken 69 (ayoo) flights this year, travelling a total of 200,893 km and racking up 2,826,900 kg worth of CO2 emissions in her private jet.

9. Kylie Jenner

8. Leonard Blavatnik

Co2 flight emissions in 2023: 3,130,300

I also had to look up this man, and he’s a Ukrainian-born businessman who is worth approximately $31.3 billion. So he obviously travels everywhere via private jet.

Maybe Steven Spielberg can make a movie where the world soon collapses due to global warming, partly caused by his travelling actions.

5. Bill Gates

4. Beyonce and Jay Z

Co2 flight emissions in 2023: 4,317,800

These two come as a pair and with Beyonce’s tour, you’d best believe they made the top five. Together they took 144 flights in their private jet, travelled 357,717 km and produced 4,317,800 kg of CO2 emissions.
