(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Lim Ji-woo = ‘Queen of Pop’ Taylor Swift captured the world’s attention when she dramatically arrived to watch the National Football League (NFL) Super Bowl game in which her boyfriend played on the 11th (local time) during her world tour. It attracted attention.

However, Swift has once again become the center of controversy as it is estimated that the additional carbon emissions she emits while traveling on a private plane will amount to about 90 tons.

According to reports such as the US daily Washington Post (WP), Swift cheered on the NFL Super Bowl game in which her boyfriend Travis Kelsey played at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas this evening.

Swift arrived in Las Vegas on a private plane, traveling approximately 8,900 km, as soon as she finished her performance on the night of the 11th (local time) in Tokyo, Japan, to watch the game.

He will continue his world tour again in Melbourne, Australia on the 16th, and the additional distance he traveled from Tokyo to Las Vegas and from Las Vegas to Melbourne to watch the Super Bowl is approximately 22,000 km (14,000 miles).

WP estimated that Swift’s private plane, Dasosa’s Falcon 900 jet, requires about 33,000 liters of fuel to travel this distance, and about 90 tons of carbon emissions are emitted in the process.

This is more than the combined carbon emissions of six average Americans throughout the year, WP reported.

Fortune, an American economic media outlet, said that the exact amount of carbon emissions may vary depending on many factors, but that the amount of carbon Swift emits while traveling from the 4th, when the Grammy Awards ceremony was held, to the 16th, when the Australian tour begins, is at least 90 tons (20%). It was predicted that it would be more than 10,000 pounds.

In the United States, environmental activists are pointing out that Swift’s frequent use of private jets is causing environmental pollution.

Recently, it was revealed that Swift had threatened legal action against a college student who had been tracking her private jet to measure carbon emissions, and she was criticized for taking excessive action.

Environmental activists are arguing that the use of private jets by celebrities, including Swift, should be banned, saying that the amount of carbon emitted is excessively high compared to regular passenger aircraft.

In response, Swift announced that he was spending money to offset the carbon he emitted, but did not disclose the specific method being used, WP reported.

In 2022, Swift was designated by a sustainability marketing company as the number one celebrity that emits the most carbon due to the use of private jets as of that year.
