HOT MESS both enlightens and lightens audiences about climate change. It answers questions like ‘Are We Screwed?’ and ‘What Can I Do About It?’ and explains why we’re playing the world’s worst Choose Your Own Adventure. Find out why we are fighting to save proper big chips, and how to solve climate change we need actual snakes on a plane and a new reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ Plans for Loft Insulation. After all, why does the end of the world need to be so depressing? Dr Matt Winning is a London-based Scottish comedian and environmental researcher who performs live climate change comedy and author of the book HOT MESS: What on Earth can we do about Climate Change? Matt has a TEDx talk about the importance of using humour to discuss climate change, hosts the podcast ‘Operation Earth’ and co-hosted the BBC Radio 4 show Mark Watson and Matt Winning: Seriously, Though, The Planet. Matt has a PhD in climate change policy and is an active researcher at the UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources on various environmental issues.
