 Environmental Groups Slam Sting Over Private Jet Use
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.
