Update on Carbon footprints: ‘Celebrities with multiple homes, cars and private jets’ lecture us on ‘global warming’ at hurricane relief event
- Whole host of A-list celebrities turned out for the Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Harvey Relief telethon
- An exclusive MailOnline investigation has revealed how much CO2 they have burned through by globetrotting
- Performer Justin Bieber is thought to have travelled at least 136,000 miles in planes since September last year
- Carbon emissions are said to have caused global temperature rising adding to devastation of powerful storms
The A-list celebrities who starred in the telethon for those affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have clocked up hundreds of thousands of air miles which have fuelled rising temperatures and helped create devastating storms.
They appealed to viewers to donate to help fund relief efforts after the disastrous storms hit the southern US.
But a MailOnline investigation has revealed the extent to which stars have contributed to the catastrophic weather phenomenons with their jet-setting lifestyles.
Justin Bieber is calculated to have travelled at least 136,000 miles in a plane over the last year, environmentalist DiCaprio is believed to have done more than 87,000 miles while fellow actor Clooney did 61,000 miles.
Carbon emissions from plane journeys such as the celebrities’ cause the earth’s temperature to heat and the resulting higher ocean temperatures lead to more powerful hurricanes. The higher temperatures over land and sea mean the storms generate more energy.

Heavy hitters: Cher and George Clooney were among the many stars who took part in the Hand In Hand hurricane relief telethon Tuesday night to help the victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Clooney spent around 61,448 in the air since September last year, which included a long trip to Italy this summer. His total air time meant his carbon emissions from flying alone was 10.31 tonnes of CO2. Cher, meanwhile, appears to have flown within the US in a total of 6,546
