“Comedy solves a lot of the problems that we have in communicating climate change,” says Dr. Matt Winning, an environmental economist, and stand-up comedian.
Matt is a Senior Research Fellow in the Institute for Sustainable Resources at University College London working on climate policy, including the Lancet Countdown on Health and Climate Change.
Matt is also a stand-up comedian who performs live climate change comedy, at festivals and comedy clubs around the UK, regularly appears on BBC Radio 4, and has a TEDx talk about the importance of using humour to discuss climate change.
His debut book HOT MESS: What On Earth Can We Do About Climate Change is out now and available in hardback, ebook and audiobook.
In this conversation, we’ll talk about climate change comedy, the power of humour to tackle the climate crisis, and bringing children into a changing climate.
