Climate change critics again BLASTS Taylor Swift AND Travis Kelce for using a gas-guzzling private jet during Australian leg of her Eras Tour

Taylor Swift has sparked a wave of criticism online for the extraordinary carbon footprint she created using a private jet during the Australian leg of her Eras Tour.

The megastar, 33, flew into Australia in her Bombardier Global 6000 earlier this month, and then used the luxury aircraft to travel between Melbourne and Sydney as she continued her tour.

Swift also sent the aircraft to Hawaii to pick up her boyfriend Travis Kelce last week, transporting the football star to Sydney so he could watch her perform.

On Tuesday morning, the Shake It Off hitmaker and her entourage jetted out of Australia using the same aircraft, en route to Singapore.

Australian critics have since slammed Swift – who previously described climate change as a ‘horrific situation’ plaguing the world – for using a gas guzzling jet rather than flying commercial.

‘If [climate change] is a catastrophe, when why are celebs allowed to fly around the world in their private jets? Like, Taylor Swift seems to use hers like a car,’ one user wrote on X.

‘Remember, Taylor Swift sent her private jet from Sydney to Hawaii to pick up her boyfriend and bring him back to Sydney… so that they could cuddle and kiss in front of an audience,’ another added.

A single private jet emits as much carbon dioxide in an hour as the average person does in an entire year, with private flights 14 times more polluting (per passenger) than a commercial plane.

A spokesman for Swift recently said the pop star has been offsetting her carbon footprint by buying carbon credits, which support verified projects which help cut global emissions in order to ‘protect vulnerable ecosystems.’

They told DailyMail.com she was working to lessen her jets’ carbon emissions by traveling less frequently than in previous years.

‘Before the tour kicked off in March of 2023, Taylor purchased more than double the carbon credits needed to offset all tour travel,’ the spokesperson explained.

However, critics argue that buying carbon credits give wealthy people ‘licence to pollute’ while continuing their carbon-intensive lifestyles.
