Introduction Read the introduction to Ecological Governance. Related Titles. Ron Paul of Texas, for one, in December, , released an ad questioning Gingrich's "serial hypocrisy" and quoting newspaper articles, pundits and conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh to illustrate Gingrich's numerous policy changes. In December, , Gingrich now says that making that ad "was probably the single dumbest thing" he's ever done.
Yet in this book, Gingrich wrote that climate change is supported by a wealth of scientific data derived from a diversity of measurement techniques. Political posturing aside, Gingrich seemed sincere in his writing, so it's probable that during the Primaries, Newt is following the advice of political advisors and reaching out to the most conservative wing of the Party to try to win the nomination, and may back off positions contrary to those listed in his book should he win the nomination and then try adopt a more center to right of center position to appeal to more of the Independents.

Aside from now wondering about Newt's change in feelings and original reason for writing the book, the other part of the book I didn't like was the endless platitudes vs. Most of the ideas were things like "we all need to do better", " we need to respected the environment", "we need to foster better cooperation between government and the private sector", etc. But if you get through the somewhat superficial elements in the book, there are some decent ideas offered.

I deeply enjoyed this book. Newt has such an intellengent way of organizing ideas. In the book he clearly shows that liberals don't have the only solutions to the environmental problem. He give good ideas on how Democrats and Republicans can work together to inspire new green innovations and improve our planet. Great read for any conservative who cares about the planet. Sep 16, Shaun rated it liked it. I thought this book was okay. There are plenty of things we can do to improve the environment, but it won't be solved by government.

I'm just not sure where Newt was coming from with this. It just doesn't sound like his voice. I do appreciate that he tries to not politicize the issues he discusses. Mar 03, Amanda Linehan rated it it was ok. This book was OK, nothing remarkable and not bad either. It was surprising to see him come out in full force of what I see as liberal policies, but nothing that he wrote about was groundbreaking. Oct 01, Drew Johnson rated it did not like it. I expect more from Newt. A mere recollection of the importance of conservation and some success in doing so.
