Harrison Ford, a famous Hollywood actor, has frequently traveled through his private jet despite his well-known climate change activism in recent months.

Ford's private jet, a multimillion-dollar Cessna Citation Sovereign, has made no less than eight trips stretching approximately 5,284 miles and emitting roughly 35 metric tons of carbon dioxide in less than two months, according to data from ADS-B Exchange and Celebrity Jets.

Ford has made regular appearances at global climate conferences, calling upon individuals and government leaders to back attempts to reduce emissions and prevent disastrous global warming.

"It's hard to read the headlines — floods, fires, famines, plagues — and tell your children that everything is alright," he announced at a conservation summit in France last year. "It's not alright. Damn it, it's not alright. It's alright to feel frustration, anxiety, grief, but don't run away from it. Cry out for justice, justice for mother nature."

"The Earth has irreplaceable ecosystems rich in carbon and biodiversity," he went on. "By preserving just a small fraction of these wetlands, tropical forests and mangroves, we can protect our wildlife, our air, water, food jobs and climate."

Ford continued that a younger generation of climate activists has the energy and conscience to do "what we have not yet been able to do."

"If we don't stop the destruction of the natural world, nothing else will matter," Ford announced throughout a separate address at the 2020 Global Climate Action Summit.

Yet Ford's jet has emitted more carbon into the environment in less than two months than the average American burns every two years and the average individual worldwide burns every nine years. The average carbon footprint of an American is 16 tons a year while the average person worldwide burns about 4 tons a year, according to The Nature Conservancy.

Over the last two months, the jet has frequently traveled to and from Los Angeles suburb Hawthorne, California, Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and Idaho Falls, Idaho, the flight tracking data revealed.

The longest tracked flight was a 1,203-mile trek from Wichita, Kansas, to Hawthorne. That trip alone burned seven metric tons of carbon.

A representative for Ford didn't react to a request for comment.

Ford is not the only celebrity and climate activist to prefer private jet travel over commercial airlines.

Hollywood director Steven Spielberg burned a whopping $116,159 worth of jet fuel between June 23 and Aug. 22, Fox News Digital reported. Spielberg's Gulfstream G650 flew over 17,000 miles and burned no less than 179 metric tons of carbon in that period.
