A rebuttal might argue that these points contradict the primary argument Patterson made at the opening of the article; by heavily implying that global warming proponents cling to the hope of “climate change catastrophe” mainly as an effort to profit from government funding and to further bureaucratic control, he nullifies his argument based on the quote from Charles Mackay that global warming fear is borne from superstition, Western guilt, and apocalyptic yearning.By emphasizing the extent of the error of global warming believers to such a degree, Patterson may be attempting to pique the interest of those who have paid little attention to the global warming debate before.By citing two examples of scientists dissenting from popular scient...

This shows her own passion for the issue and sets the tone for the remainder of the article.She attempts to put them on side with her reasonable arguments and calls to bury the hatchet and work together before the planet is destroyed.Global warming and issues of environmental sustainability have been at the forefront of concerns confronting Australian society for a while now.Singer asks, “Can you imagine the world being a better place – with less pollution, greater respect for human rights and war declared only as a last resort?” By asking rhetorical questions, that is a question where the answer is not written, but is implied by the author, Singer not only encourages her readers to imagine a wonderful world like this, but also makes the...

Persuasive writing follows a particular format.Persuasive writing is often used in advertisements to get the reader to buy a product.Since almost all issues have sound arguments on both sides of the question, a good persuasive writer tries to anticipate opposing viewpoints and provide counter-arguments along with the main points in the essay.(e.g..: suppose that, what if...)

His techniques of basing his argument on a common, natural object and vigorously presenting his own arguments give him a persuasive advantage.The other persuasive technique found in many of Donne’s poems is using vivid metaphors and similes to ground the arguments in a pleasing and convincing way.By basing the argument on a flea, Donne’s speaker uses the persuasive technique of employing a common metaphor.‘The Sun Rising’ shows how a speaker can craft a persuasive argument solely with a forceful delivery and personal attacks.The disparity in presenting the two arguments causes the speaker to have the persuasive advantage over the woman.

Yet reason has its flaws as well such as the range of informal fallacies and when premises that construct the arguments might be valid the truthfulness is still questionable, hence other ways of knowing is required to justify it such as the case of euthanasia where the argument “Taking a life is morally wrong, euthanasia is the act of taking away a life, hence euthanasia is wrong.” Is perfectly valid but the truthfulness must be enhanced through the use scientific observations like using technology to see if the person’s brain is responding to stimuli.“Global Warming Fast Facts.” Daily Nature and Science News and Headlines | National Geographic News.Heinemann, blue book .The Theory of Knowledge.The fact that global warming is occurring i...

For instance, Lomborg refutes scientific assumptions about the global warming by mentioning that the greenhouse gases does not comprise the only cause of global warming and that there are other factors such as solar energy that may impact global warming.For instance, Sharon Begley, an environment expert is of the idea that Lomborg’s argument is based on bad logic especially through Lomborg’s argument that people should not to fear global warming because there is high number of deaths resulting from the ‘cold’ weather as opposed to death as a result of the ‘warm’ weather.On the other hand, the rhetoric of global warming has been presented by Lomborg and his argument lies in the premise that global warming together with the other environme...

There is yet be any discovery and scientific proof of what is actually causing global warming.There are a couple well known arguments that can be really convincing that humans are the cause.In conclusion, though the IPPC, Patrick Gonzalez, and Bharat Raj Singh want society and the world to believe that they are damaging the Earth there is no scientific proof that Global warming is occurring.The fourth argument has been a myth that the average mean temperature of the earth has risen in the last few years (Global Warming: 10 facts and 10 Myths).Therefore how can humans be responsible when there in absolutely no evidence that humans have any part in this so called “Global Warming.” .
