EDIT
Gingrich and Sachs Discuss A Contract with the Earth
AIRED:
A Contract with the Earth featuring Newt Gingrich in conversation with Jeffrey Sachs.Most people-regardless of how they categorize themselves politically are weary of the legal and political conflicts that prevent individuals and communities from realizing the benefits of environmental conservation.In his new book, A Contract with the Earth, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and conservationist Terry L. Maple focus the environmental debate on the principle of common commitment.They declare a need for bipartisan environmentalism - a new era of environmental stewardship. While acknowledging that liberals and conservatives do not see eye to eye on many issues, they argue that environmental stewardship is a mainstream value that transcends partisan politics.Their approaches to our environmental challenges are based on three main premises: environmental leadership is integral to America's role in the world, technologically savvy environmental entrepreneurs can and should be the cornerstone of environmental solutions, and cooperation and incentives must be dramatically increased to achieve workable and broadly supported environmental solutions.The foundation of the book - a ten-point Contract with the Earth - promotes ingenuity over rhetoric as the way forward - New York Public Librarymoreless
