You will conduct a rhetorical analysis where you will be identifying and examining
the Aristotelian appeals of ethos, pathos and logos in either the article “Leaving the Paris
Agreement Would Be Indefensible” by Todd Stern OR the article “Why Is Climate Change Such
a Hard Sell in the U.S.” by Firmin DeBrabander. You must offer a critical analysis of the text
and bring in your unique insights in order to answer the following question: How does the
author argue their case and do they do it effectively? Why or why not?

Purpose: 1) Demonstrate knowledge of important rhetorical concepts such as audience, purpose,
genre, and context.

2) Identify and analyze rhetorical and organizational strategies from a variety
of texts and employ appropriate strategies to compose thesis-driven essays.

Audience & Point-of-View: Assume your reader is unfamiliar with the article you are
discussing. Use 3rd person point-of-view (avoid using the pronouns “I” or “you.”).
