Taylor Swift jet tops worst private plane CO2 emissions list. She responds

Taylor Swift is getting backlash from critics about her private jet's carbon footprint.

Swift was accused of polluting the earth by flying in her private jet 170 times between Jan. 1 and July 29, according to Yard, a sustainability marketing agency that prides itself on "cutting-edge data and analysis."

However, a representative for the 32-year-old pop star said, "Taylor’s jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals. To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect," according to TMZ. 

The research gathered by Yard shows results for "which celebrities are the worst private jet CO2 emission offenders," with Swift racking up more than 22,000 minutes in the air, or the equivalent of 16 days. 

Swift’s total flight emissions for the year total 8,240 metric tons, or 1,185 times more than the average person’s total annual emissions, according to the report. The study also alleged other celebrities are guilty of polluting the planet. 

Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather ranks second as the "worst private jet CO2 emission" offender.

Other celebrities accused of not being climate friendly are Jay-Z, Alex Rodriguez, Blake Shelton, Steven Spielberg and Oprah. 

Celebrity luxury flights have come under scrutiny after Kylie Jenner posted a photo on social media of her and Travis Scott’s private jets last week.
