A Contract With the Earth is a book-length proposal for a new environmental policy. It wasn’t as science-oriented as Bjorn Lomborg's Cool It, nor as hyperbolic as Al Gore's Inconvenient Truth. 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.
