SUSTAINABLE Crediton will welcome Professor Peter Stott of the Met Office and Exeter University as guest speaker at Crediton Congregational Church, 98 High Street, on Thursday, October 28 at 7.30pm.

Peter will be presenting his newly published book: “Hot Air, The Inside Story of the Battle Against Climate Change Denial”.

Peter is a leading expert in the field of climate change research and a major contributor to reports of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change).

He was the recipient of the Climate Science Communications Award for 2018 from the Royal Meteorological Society and was named by “Foreign Policy Magazine” as one of the world’s leading Global Thinkers for 2013.

Peter thinks it is important to communicate scientific findings about climate to the public and has given many media interviews, including on TV, radio and to many print journalists.

He also appeared in documentaries for Channel 4 and National Geographic TV about Extreme Weather and Climate Change.

Notably, he featured in the BBC documentary, “Climate Change; The Facts”, presented by David Attenborough.

He has written articles for “New Scientist”, “The Guardian” and a Carbon Brief blog on recent floods.

Copies of Peter’s book will be on sale at the event at the discounted price of £13.99, saving £5 on the usual retail price. Card payments accepted.

The event is hugely relevant as the make-or-break COP26 climate change conference approaches.

Sustainable Crediton would especially welcome young people to this event.

Tickets: £5 each, free for full-time students, preferably in advance from Eventbrite; search on Sustainable Crediton; or on the door (cash only) subject to availability.
