Peter Stott

Peter Stott is a climate scientist whose book Hot Air: The Inside Story of the Battle Against Climate Change Denial was published by Atlantic Books in October 2021. He has been at the forefront of international research into climate change for over 25 years and has witnessed at first-hand how vital action to address the climate crisis has been delayed by lobbyists, politicians and maverick contrarians. Hot Air was reviewed in the New Statesman as ‘jaw-dropping’ and ‘an invaluable record of how climate scientists have fought deep-pocketed lobby groups’ and was described as ‘illuminating’ and ‘compelling’ by the Irish Times.
