Peter Stilbs (born 1 June 1945) is a professor in physical chemistry at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Sweden.

Stilbs earned a master's degree in chemical engineering from the Lund Institute of Technology at Lund University in 1969, and a Ph.D. in physical chemistry in 1974.[1] He served as a research assistant in physical chemistry at Uppsala University from 1976 to 1982, and as an assistant professor from 1982 to 1986. In 1986 he became a professor in physical chemistry at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.[1] His main fields of research are the techniques and applications of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR).[2]

Stilbs has also been active in the debate on global warming. He has criticised the view that there is a scientific consensus on the attribution of recent climate change, and described the climate projections conducted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) as inadequate and misleading.[3][4] In September 2006 he was chairman of an international seminar at the Royal Institute of Technology labelled Global Warming – Scientific Controversies in Climate Variability, where both critics and supporters of the theory of man-made global warming were invited.[5]
