Mark Wahlberg, Kim Kardashian, Jay Z among ‘eco-hypocrite jet set’ who take private jets for short trips

A prominent computer programmer has created a bot that tracks the private jet-usage of wealthy celebrities, and the findings that the bot has uncovered thus far are shocking, to say the least.

What makes the findings stunning is that some of the most prolific offenders are loud climate change zealots who screech and holler about impending doom and gloom for humanity.

Moreover, these offenders are using their private jets to travel extraordinarily small distances that could easily be traversed with a car, which is far less polluting than the average jet. The Daily Mail dubbed the violators the “eco-hypocrite jet set.”

Take leftist socialite Kim Kardashian. On July 7th, she flew just 35 miles from Van Nuys, California to Camarillo, California. Although the trip was so short, it used up 91 gallons of fuel and produced 1 ton of CO2 emissions:

Yet here’s what this same woman tweeted in 2020:

Apparently, it’s not real enough to stop her from producing a literal ton of emissions.

Next up is rapper Jay-Z and his wife, Beyoncé. In 2019, they lectured the world’s citizens about the need for them to switch to a plant-based diet to save the planet.

“Would you eat a kale salad for lifetime Beyoncé tickets? How about a banana smoothie for endless JAY-Z tickets? If the answer is yes, then you should probably head over to the Greenprint Project, a movement supported by the power couple, that encourages people to adopt a plant-based diet,” Global Citizen reported at the time.

“On Thursday, Beyoncé told followers on Instagram that they could win tickets for life to her and JAY-Z’s shows by joining the Greenprint Project,” the outlet added.

Yet here’s how many private jet flights Jay-Z alone took on Sunday, July 17th, not including the flight he took from TEB to SEA (Celebrity Jets didn’t document it for some reason:

Jay-Z could have saved the world tons of pollution by taking a commercial flight like everybody else in the world.

“Data from Transport & Environment shows that private jets are up to 14 times more polluting than commercial planes per passenger,” according to CNBC.

Next up is fellow rapper Drake, who last year “announced his new partnership with Aspiration, a start-up company described as a leader in ‘sustainability as a service,’ to help track the carbon footprint of his travel and tours to help reduce and ultimately, create a carbon-neutral lifestyle,” as reported by Hot New Hip Hop.

Yet a year later, his plan to create a carbon-neutral lifestyle doesn’t appear to be working out all too well.

Case in point:

The Twitter account @CelebrityJets, created by prominent programmer Jack Sweeney, contains numerous other examples of climate change hypocrites, ranging from actor Mark Wahlberg to TV host Oprah Winfrey, country singer Kenny Chesney, filmmaker Steven Spielberg, and socialite Kylie Jenner, among others.

Jenner, the daughter of Caitlin Jenner, has been called a “climate criminal” after a recent tweet from @CelebJebs showed that last week, she took a 17-minute flight instead of just driving for 45 or so minutes.

It didn’t help that three days after the flight, she posted a braggadocios post to Instagram touting her and her boyfriend’s separate private jets.
