Taylor Swift catches a lot of heat over jet travel. Here’s her actual impact

How did Taylor Swift become a lightning rod in the debate over carbon dioxide emissions, and just how much does her private jet contribute to global warming?

The Eras Tour superstar is known for boosting economies, being taught at universities like Harvard, rerecording her music and breaking records with new album releases including “The Tortured Poets Department.” She has also gained attention for flying her private jet (she sold her second one) around the world for concert stops, to do business and meet with friends in New York, rehearse in Los Angeles, see her family in Nashville and visit her boyfriend Travis Kelce in Kansas City, Missouri.

Conversation began in 2022

In the summer of 2022, Kylie Jenner posted a photo (that’s since been deleted) of her and Travis Scott’s private planes with the caption, “You wanna take mine or yours?” The backlash led the Yard, a content and public relations firm, to publish a study of which celebrities produced the most private jet emissions that year. The publication put Miss Americana at the top of the list

 

The Yard has added a disclaimer to the top of the study that reads in part: “Following the release of our data, Rolling Stone contacted each of the celebrities’ representatives for comment. Taylor Swift’s representative said the following: ‘Taylor’s jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals. To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect.'”
