A comedy lecture about how we cope with climate change and what we can do about it, from the 'attractively impish' Guardian environmental researcher and comedian Dr Matt Winning.
The world as we know it is coming to an end regardless of whether we want it to or not. Here Matt explores what that means and considers what it must be like being a teenager nowadays compared to when he was young.
As seen/heard on Unspun with Matt Forde, BBC Three, BBC Radio 4, BBC Scotland, BBC Radio Scotland and his podcast Operation Earth where he interviews comedians about climate change.
'Everything a Fringe show should be: hilarious, personal, inventive, and something that will stay with you for some time to come' ★★★★★
'Winning's sharp wit and intelligence allows him to educate as he entertains' ★★★★½ Sunday Post.
