Al Gore exhibits an intense fascination with global warming in the world. Al Gore is hoping for an incline in the observance of global warming in today’s humans. To inspire change in the young minds of today Al Gore uses an emotional appeal to draw the audience in and establish a common ground. Gore also employs an ethical appeal, hoping to draw in another demographic in which are focused on the future of our country. Finally, Gore utilizes data, graphs, tables, and other such information.
Al Gore has been pitching global warming for many years. The solvency argument of global warming and climate change has been a debated topic in many scientific and environmental protection communities since before Al Gore started his persuasion appeals. The first time I heard Al Gore speak on global warming was in 1994, during his Vice Presidency. While watching the ted.com video I couldn’t help but think of how credible Al Gore is in his audiences’ eyes. His ethos cues come full score, his physical character; tall, and handsome (depending on who you talk to) gives rise to his likability.
“The only thing that we can do is control what we do next. How we live our lives. What we consume. How we get involved. And how we use our vote to to tell our leaders that we know the truth about climate change”, says Leonardo Dicaprio.
The Manifestation of Visualization Inevitably, the world climate often changes and has become an issue that most people tend to ignore and refuse to talk about. In other words, the general population tends to ignore climate-fiction movies and stories because of the way the authors present them. That is, the point of views of the stories, articles or films doesn’t quite grab the attention of the viewers and so, viewers are not able to envision themselves in such environment. After much deliberation, I believe that Helen Simpson’s story “Diary of an Interesting Year” does an effective job emphasizing the issues on global warming due to the frequent usage of the narrator’s deep emotions and internal conflicts.
Hardin’s utilizes metaphors to aid the reader’s understanding of his article instead of confusing the reader. Essentially, Hardin gives the reader a scenario in which the reader, a citizen of a rich nation, floats safely abroad a lifeboat while the poor swim out to sea. The simplicity of his lifeboat metaphor actively engages the reader on the difficulty of survival when only a few can. Readers can easily picture themselves in this metaphoric life boat due to the common familiarity of life boats, or boats in general. In his second metaphor, Hardin, in his article stays on point without distracting the readers.
Michael Pollan publishes an inspiring article, "Why Bother?" to The New York Magazine in April 20, 2008. Pollan desires to discusses the problems with society and how climate changed can be impacted. With only a few words in one can tell how passionate Pollan is in illustrating his "why bother?" question.
Jeff Britt Professor Blackburn Persuasive Speech General Purpose: To persuade Specific Purpose: To persuade the audience to help reduce climate change, due to the New Jersey area being massively affected by Sea Level rising. Pattern: Problem-cause-solution Introduction:
Global warming is an issue that we need to take serious action upon! It is an issue of global significance. The human race is causing Global warming due to its use of activities resulting in a rise in the temperature of the earth’s climate (Strickland, 2005). Every day there are more and more stories in the media about Global warming and the tragedies that follow. If we do not take immediate action against this issue, the world we live in will be open to an unwanted amount of change.
Eating Towards Global Warming Global warming has been a topic of debate for many years now. A more recent argument is that food production is a key contributing factor to the global warming epidemic. In the article “A Carnivore’s Dilemma”, Nicolette Niman provides an insight to the logistics being said in these statements.
Rising sea levels, melting ices in the Arctic and Antarctica seem pretty familiar to people whenever mentioning about Global Warming. But rarely of them aware that Global Warming could bring about many profound consequences directly to human beings such as dangerous climate change-related diseases, catastrophes, ecosystem failure and even war just because of the diminution of natural resources. Having said that, Global Warming is no longer a typical environment issue. It is now a worldwide pressing problem that everyone should have some particular consciousnesses about it. The following essay is to give a general view towards Global Warming as well as how media effects this phenomenon.
In the article ‘Why Bother?’ Michael Pollan, a Professor of Journalism at the University of California, examines the dangers of climate change and how ordinary citizens can reduce its effects on the environment. Although most scientists are concerned and have warned nations of its disastrous effects some still deny the existence of climate change. As if melting ice caps and the ever-increasing blue waters were not enough proof, some citizens believe that climate change is an “unproven theory or a negligible contribution to natural climate variability” (Hall 3). Nevertheless, citizens who believe in global warning can change how they live for the better.
