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.
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.
