A spokesperson for Taylor Swift has responded to a report that named the singer as the celebrity with the worst private jet CO2 emissions.

Yesterday, a report released by Yard claimed the American singer was the biggest CO2 polluter of the year so far, having flown in her private jet 170 times since January and totalling 8,294.54 tonnes of CO2.

However, Swift's spokesperson told Buzzfeed News the statistics are inaccurate.

For context, the report claims the average person produces just seven tonnes of carbon emissions per year.

Swift's representative said only some of the 170 flights can be attributed to the singer: "Taylor's jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals. To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect."

Four people rushed to hospital with carbon monoxide poisoning after using charcoal barbecue inside

  Four people rushed to hospital with carbon monoxide poisoning after using charcoal barbecue inside Four people from an Adelaide household who used a charcoal barbecue inside to keep warm narrowly escape death from carbon monoxide poisoning, the Metropolitan Fire Service says. MFS and ambulance crews were called to a unit on Riverside Drive at Bedford Park at about 1.30am. Two men and two women, aged in their 20s and 30s, had brought a charcoal brazier loaded with heat beads inside to keep warm. Witnesses reported one of the women screamed for help when she could not rouse the others.MFS station officer Wayne Trezise said it was just "sheer luck" the woman woke up enough to raise the alarm.

Regardless, it is clear Swift's jet is racking up significant amounts of carbon emissions due to its inefficient use.

According to the Yard report, her average flight time is just 80 minutes, and her jet's shortest recorded flight flew between Missouri and Nashville for just 36 minutes.

Other significant celebrity polluters include boxer and domestic violence perpetrator Floyd Mayweather, whose shortest flight was just 10 minutes long but emitted one ton of carbon; Kim Kardashian, who has emitted 609 times more carbon than the average person; and director Steven Spielberg, who took an 18-minute flight between Rotterdam and Amsterdam – a route which, when taken by train, takes only an hour.

The subject of celebrity carbon emissions has blown up ever since Kylie Jenner shared an out-of-touch photo of her and partner Travis Scott posing in front of their private jets with the caption, "you wanna take mine or yours?"

In the midst of the backlash, many began diving deeper into Jenner's private jet use by examining the Celebrity Jets Twitter account, which records celebrity private jet trips.

Many were horrified she was regularly taking flights as short as 12 minutes and reprimanded her for "her absolute disregard for the planet".

Many found it hypocritical that ordinary people were being asked by big companies to reduce their car trips and use paper straws when celebrities are constantly leaving huge carbon footprints with frivolous trips in their private jets.

Despite the wave of criticism, celebrities have continued to take private flights between short distances.
