London - Sir Elton John’s claims that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s private jet flights were carbon neutral were dismissed by Greenpeace’s chief scientist.
The 72-year-old "Rocketman" singer defended Harry and Meghan amid a furious row over their use of private jets.
He revealed on social media that he paid for the eco-warrior couple’s luxury flights to Nice, saying that he had made a donation to offset their carbon footprint.
But on Tuesday Doug Parr of Greenpeace said that "carbon offsetting" was not a solution to the climate crisis.
He insisted: "Carbon offsetting is not a meaningful response to aviation emissions. Good works can be done with cash out into offset schemes, but it is no solution."
