A Contract with the Earth
A bold rallying cry for conservative environmental leadership.
Appealing to America?s core conservative readership and defying conventional thinking, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and eminent conservationist Terry L. Maple posit that the values of conservative America are aligned with the principles of conservation and ?entrepreneurial environmentalism.? Saving the earth is not?and cannot be?a partisan issue. The authors outline a ten-point Contract with the Earth that promotes ingenuity over rhetoric, maintaining that the expansion of ?green business,? new technologies, and environmental economic incentives will be the defining opportunities for the leaders of the next generation.
An inspiring call to action, A Contract with the Earth offers a vision of the future that is both hopeful and achievable.
