On Tuesday morning, the Shake It Off hitmaker and her entourage left Australia using the same plane, en route to Singapore.

‘Yeah [climate change] It’s a catastrophe, when why are celebrities allowed to fly around the world in their private jets? “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 they could hug and kiss in front of an audience,” another added.

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

A spokesperson for Swift recently said that the pop star has been offsetting her carbon footprint by purchasing carbon credits, which support verified projects that help reduce global emissions to “protect vulnerable ecosystems.”

They told DailyMail.com it was working to reduce carbon emissions from its planes by traveling less frequently than in previous years.

“Before the tour began in March 2023, Taylor purchased more than double the carbon credits needed to offset all travel on the tour,” the spokesperson explained.

However, critics argue that buying carbon credits gives the rich a “license to pollute” as they continue their carbon-intensive lifestyles.
