While some have pointed out the impact of private jets on the climate, a backlash grew when Celebrity Jets accused Jenner of a three-minute flight on her private jet, which would have been a 40-minute drive. Although not in the top ten, Jenner has landed at number 19 with 64 flights that have emitted 1,682.7 tons of carbon dioxide this year, according to Rolling Stone.
