Celebrities and the Climate Crisis

Only one percent of people are responsible for about half of all aviation carbon emissions. Billionaires, such as Elon Musk and Taylor Swift, enjoy riding the coattails of a fossil-fuel economy where the rich can buy the right to pollute and emit greenhouse gases to their hearts’ content.

Billionaires are trying to conceal their private jet emissions by suspending social media accounts, like CelebJets, that track and post legally available data online. The rich may try to hide records of their emissions, but they cannot conceal the very real impacts of pollution on our climate. And it is the world’s lowest income groups facing the brunt of climate change.
