McEwen’s use of pathos can be clearly identified in this phrase by looking at the way he states what he is saying. Here, McEwen does not use any facts or famous experts, but he does say this in such a way that the gets the reader really thinking

There is a controversial and intimidating proposal that looms over the heads of not only the many inhabitants of the northwestern area of Minnesota, but as well as the entirety of the state. Polymet wishes to invest a large chunk of money into the construction of a sulfide mine. Upon first consideration, this seems like a fantastic idea. As it would provide jobs, give Minnesota new opportunities, and boost the economy of the towns and cities surrounding the mine site. However, when digging deeper, it is easily said that the negative effects outweigh the positive ones.
A country's environment and geographical location has an influence on the people and their way of life. Egypt is an example of this. Egypt is located in the northeastern part of Africa. Egypt's land is mostly desert, so the Aswan High Dam was built. This dam allowed Egypt to have year-round irrigation, and to grow three crops a year rather than just one.
Many people depend upon their vehicles to get them around. Unfortunately, when you combine alcohol and driving, sometimes the result is the loss of driving privileges for a time. The amount of time you actually lose your driving privileges in many cases depends upon the extent of the DWI as well as the number of previous alcohol-related convictions.

Gideon Shelach’s article deals with the construction of two sedentary Neolithic societies and their social structure by taking an anthropological approach. Because his goal is the search for early Neolithic cultures, he chose to not only focus on pre-Hongshan cultures, but also use them as a comparative model because the Hongshan culture has attracted much attention in both China and the West. The two cultures he focuses on are Xinglongwa and Zhaobaoguo in northeast China. In doing this, Shelach hopes that the differences found in these societies can be used to examine the differences in cultures of the world today. Shelach starts his article by describing some of the main features of these cultures, such as rectangular houses, the use of
How 100,000,000 Acres Was Made Unlivable It was a clear sunny day on the far. I watched as my kids played soccer in the field. I felt a gentle breeze, I was horrified. I turn around to see a huge wall of dust in the horizon.
In around 1930 Oklahoma,Texas,Kansas,New Mexico and Colorado were mostly dry grasslands. These states got hit by these black dust and dirt storms many times. People used wet towels to cover cracks in the houses like under doors and windows so the dust/dirt wouldn’t go into the houses. Farmers could only grow a few things like wheat and corn and they had cattle.
