Super Bowl jets added to climate change?

The Super Bowl's Private-Jet Problem - WSJ


Sunday’s Super Bowl only worsened climate change? It’s what environmentalists and experts contend occurred because of the hundreds of private jets that flew into the four airports in Las Vegas as the rich and famous came to watch the matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers.

But what did it mean for the climate? Critics have often said the private jets used by some wealthy climate change advocates only worsened things and the jam-packed airports in Vegas did the very same thing.

The Hill reported thatTransport & Environment, a European organization that advocates for greener transportation, estimates that private jets emit 5 to 14 times more pollutants per passenger than commercial aircraft and 50 times more than trains.
