(ANI): British singer Sting has come under fire from environmental
groups for chartering a jet for his own private use. The singer, a
longtime campaigner for green issues, has now been accused of
failing to do his bit for the environment by flying between Germany
and London over the weekend.
A spokesman for Leipzig airport, where he disembarked, confirmed
reports that he travelled alone, although the craft had space for
14 other people. "Sting was the only passenger on board the Falcon
2000 aircraft," Contactmusic quoted the spokesman, as saying.
Environmentalists are especially crying foul because Sting has
regularly called on the public to cut back on their carbon
emissions to help save the planet.
