Singer and songwriter Taylor Swift has been named as the number one private jet polluter among celebrities, according to a report from the sustainability-driven digital marketing agency Yard.

Despite being a Democratic activist who has lectured others on climate change in her spare time, Swift flew 170 times in the first 200 days of 2022, emitting 8,293.54 metric tons of carbon dioxide, the report states.

"Considering that she is not currently touring, this is a huge amount. Taylor's average flight time is 80 minutes with an average of 139.36 miles per flight," Yard researchers report.

Since the beginning of this year, Taylor Swift's private jet usage amounts to what 1,184 ordinary people would emit in one year.

After facing heavy worldwide criticism following the release of the report, Taylor Swift's rep defended the starlet in a statement to The Los Angeles Times and said, "Taylor's jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals. To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect."

Other celebrities topping the list of Yard's "Celebs with the Worst Private Jet Co2 Emissions" include:
