Ted Nugent recently lambasted the pop superstar Taylor Swift as he claimed about her “hypocrisy.” It comes after the star topped a list of celebrities whose private jets have produced the highest amount of carbon dioxide so far this year.
Taylor Swift was criticized
U.K.-based sustainability marketing firm Yard published a report last week revealing that Taylor used her private jet more than any other celebrity in 2022, taking 170 flights so far this year, totaling almost 16 days in the air. The aircraft’s total flight emissions were 8,293.54 tons of carbon, which is 1,184.8 times more than the average person’s total annual emissions.
A spokesperson for Swift quickly shot down the report, saying in a statement: “Taylor’s jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals. To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect.”

[World Economic Forum founder] Klaus Schwab and the World Econonic punks, as they’re going into their limousines and their private jets and they’ve got drivers and they’ve got Mercedeses and they’ve got the Rolls-Royces, they’re gonna tell us we can’t own a pick-up truck. The hypocrisy is toxic.”
