Reviews and Endorsements

"Should one enjoy reading about the climate emergency? That's the dilemma I faced reading Arno Kopecky's earnest, nuanced, and funny new book. From the quagmire of Canadian petropolitics to COVID-19's impact on the environmental movement, Kopecky captures the current moment of whiplash and dysfunction perfectly. The Environmentalist's Dilemma unpacks the most worrying issues plaguing the environmental movement while setting out a way forward for the difficult days ahead" - Laura Tretheway, author of The Imperilled Ocean

"Startling, wise, and insightful, The Environmentalist's Dilemma goes into the fraught relationship between nature and civilization. With his wide experience, well-stocked mind, and the fun and deftness of his writing, Kopecky helps us face the threats that face our world" - Ronald Wright, author of A Short History of Progress

"The Environmentalist's Dilemma is far funnier than a book contemplating apocalypse ought to be, and Arno Kopecky is far wiser than a journalist just hitting middle age ought to be. Every sentence in here is perfect. Every new page opens your mind a little more, until you're contemplating American tribalism or Extinction Rebellion or the nature of truth or the velocity of time. As a reader, I'd follow Kopecky anywhere. Even - just this once - to Disneyland" - McKenzie Funk, the PEN Literary Award-winning author of Windfall

"Timely and relevant, this offers plenty to think about" - Publishers Weekly
