Tesla and Hyperloop creator Elon Musk is building carbon-free cars. But he’s burning tons of carbon on his private jet for business and personal reasons, sometimes flying from one part of LA to another. Last year, he flew more than 150,000 miles in his private corporate jet -- enough to circle earth six times.
