Arno Kopecky

Arno Kopecky is an environmental journalist and author based in Vancouver. His reportage has spanned four continents, ranging from Iceland's attempt at becoming the first oil-free country on earth to the impact of resource extraction in the Amazon basin. For the past ten years, his primary focus has been the confluence of climate change and Indigenous Rights. The Oil Man And The Sea, Arno's book about the battle to keep oil tankers out of B.C.'s central coast, was shortlisted for the 2014 Governor-Generals Award. A 2016 Knight-Wallace Journalism Fellow, Arno contributes to numerous publications, including The Walrus, The Globe And Mail, The Tyee, Alberta Views and, of course, The Narwhal. His latest book, The Environmentalist's Dilemma, is an essay collection exploring North America's cultural response to ecological crisis.
