Muito bom. Um ensaio filosófico da melhor qualidade sobre a filosofia da ecologia. Analisa os diversos pensamentos que a ecologia embarca, desde os mais xiitas, aos mais abertos, e mostrando porque um partido não pode estar centrado apenas na questão ecológica. Porém não menospreza a questão e mostra que é através de modelos democráticos é que conseguiremos respostas e soluções para os desafios que estamos vivendo hoje.
