1. Something that I found interesting in chapter 6 was the talk about mission statements. Often, we see these things without really looking at them. They are designed to be a brief written statement, usually just one to two paragraphs long, summarizing the idea of a business or organization. This statement is a brief yet concise explanation of the groups’ purpose.
2. I decided to dive into the “Petition to President Obama: Be a leader on Global Warming”. The purpose of this was to emphasis that changing the world to address global warming will take more than political parties. I believe this manifesto is effective at describing the points the author wished to make. The evidence used is statistics. The manifesto states multiple stats about countries around the world and their policy on global warming and its importance in the future. The quote I liked the most from this piece is, “We cannot put off for tomorrow what science tells us we need to do today.” I believe this is the tone that must be carried for people to do something, crossing borders of political parties and geographical boundaries, because this is a global problem, not an individual countries’ problem.
