It’s been reported that this week Keith Urban flew a whopping 8,000 miles just to record a single track with pop star, Nellie Furtado. As of late, Urban has been spending a lot more time in Australia as he looks after a very prego Nicole Kidman (aka Mrs. Urban).
No word yet on if he flew commercial or private, but either way 8,000 miles of air travel for one afternoon is quite the waste. In fact, that kind of mileage releases over 3,000 pounds of dangerous C02 into the environment. And unfortunately, it looks like this won’t be an isolated incident. Keith has said, “I’m going to be doing quite a bit more songwriting and bringing some people down to Sydney actually”.
Ok, listen celebrities: I get that part of your business is flying around the world to promote and/or work on various projects, but there must be a way to be more efficient with your itineraries. If not, you should at least offset your emissions by doing something wonderfully green, like using wind power or solar energy. So Keith, I’m afraid I’m gonna have to whack you with Ecorazzi’s third generation, recycled, biodegradable, vegan slapping stick, signed by Alicia Silverstone and Darryl Hannah. Ready? 1-2-3 WHACK!!! I hope you know that hurt me a lot more than it hurt you!
