Climate change critics slam Taylor Swift for using a gas-guzzling private jet during Australian 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 NFL star to Sydney so he could watch her perform.

On Tuesday morning, the Shake It Off hit-maker 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, formerly Twitter.

‘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 had been offsetting her carbon footprint by buying carbon credits, which support verified projects that 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.
