A Contract With the Earth (Newt Gingrich)

QUICK TAKEA Contract With the Earth by Newt Gingrich [LibraryThing / WorldCat] is a book-length proposal for a new environmental policy.  It wasn’t as science-oriented as Bjorn Lomborg’s Cool It [LibraryThing / WorldCat], nor as hyperbolic as Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth [LibraryThing / WorldCat].  It fell somewhere in between while trying to advocate civil discourse.  E.O. Wilson’s foreword added to the ecological credibility.  The book wasn’t bad, but simply much longer than needed.  A Contract with the Earth could have been laid out just as convincingly in a magazine article.
