You know what they say: climate change is a societal problem, requiring widespread overhaul of our way of life, and shaming individuals might just be counterproductive.
But still, don’t take a four-minute flight on a private jet.
That’s what someone using Floyd Mayweather’s private jet did yesterday – a fact we know thanks to Celebrity Jets, a Twitter bot dedicated to tracking the ludicrously short journeys of the rich and famous.
From just £3 per week
The flight by Mayweather’s jet was seemingly from one side of Las Vegas to the other. But that looked positively long-haul compared to a three-minute flight taken by Kylie Jenner’s jet a couple of days earlier.
The flight saved its passengers a precious 37 minutes, given a drive between the two cities would have taken 40. Accounting for take-off, landing, taxiing, and boarding, it’s unclear exactly how many seconds were saved.
With all that in mind, it’s surprising Jenner’s jet didn’t need a stopover to complete a marathon 12-minute journey a couple of days later.
