What is climate change, who's to blame, and on earth can we do about it? Award-winning comedian and climate change researcher Dr Matt Winning explains all.

'A very funny, important and only moderately terrifying clarion call of a book' - Adam Kay 'HOT MESS provides loads of laughs about "the climate situation" and will position you at the right point between fear and determination' - Mark Watson 'Hilarious, informative and worrying in equal measure. And that's just the bits about having a baby' - Josie Long For fans of Randall Munro's WHAT IF? Matt Parker's HUMBLE PI and anyone looking for practical tips on how to stop the end of the world! Dr Matt Winning is a stand-up comedian and environmental economist with a PHD in climate change policy, which means he's the sort of doctor who will rush to your side if you fall ill on a plane, but only to berate you for flying. We are currently facing a global climate emergency. You've probably noticed. But why does the end of the world need to be so depressing? HOT MESS aims to both lighten the mood and enlighten readers on climate change. This is a book for people who care about climate change but aren't doing much about it, helping readers understand what the main causes of climate change are, what changes are needed, and what they can (and cannot) do about it. But, most importantly, it is book that'll help people find the comedy in climate change, because if we can do that, well, we can do bloody anything. 'Climate change is no laughing matter - oh yes it is - with Matt Winning's superb, hilarious, side-splitting book that makes you take a whole new look at the climate crisis, surviving having children and life in general' - Mark Maslin, author of How to Save Our Planet 'The first book about climate change that made me laugh out loud. If you've been too freaked out to subject yourself to the climate crisis, Hot Mess is the kick in the pants you need to start making yourself useful.' - Prof. Kimberly Nicholas, author of Under the Sky We Make: How to Be Human in a Warming World

About the Author: Dr Matt Winning is a London-based Scottish comedian and environmental economist who performs live climate change comedy, hosts the podcast 'Operation Earth' and has a TEDx talk about the importance of using humour to discuss climate change.
