"The Associated Press"
"Funk has written a fun book humanizing the problems of climate change, focused on the colorful entrepreneurs who see in an increasingly inhospitable world golden opportunities."
"Kirkus Reviews "(STARRED):
"A shocking account of how governments and corporations are confronting the crises caused by global warming... A well-written, useful global profile emphasizing concrete solutions rather than ideological abstractions."
"For most of the planet, the specter of global warming is ominous, but as journalist Funk reveals in this startling book, there are those who view the Earth's dangerous meltdown as a golden opportunity...Funk's original, forthright take on this little-discussed profit-taking trend in the climate change sweepstakes is very unsettling."
Eliza Griswold, author of "The Tenth Parallel" "Funk's talent shimmers from the pages of "Windfall." Here is a brilliant young stylist at work, pushing the boundaries of investigative journalism and literary non-fiction. With grace, humor and hard-nosed reporting on the startling business of climate profiteering, he takes us along on a searing ride into the maw of the apocalypse."
Charles Graeber, author of "The Good Nurse"
"Funk is a first-rate storyteller who packs adventure and humor in his journalist's bag, and delights in the absurd details of business as unusual. The result is a meticulously researched romp through the backrooms of the climate change industry, by turns thrilling and appalling, and ultimately rather important. There's money under the melting ice, and Funk follows it. Perhaps the only fun book on global climate change you'll ever read."
Elizabeth Kolbert, author of "Field Notes from a Catastrophe"
"Smart, daring, and darkly funny, "Windfall "offers a new take on perhaps the world's most intractable problem. McKenzie Funk is a gifted storyteller."
