Robert England CMJ 103 – Merrill Section I Outline for: Persuasive Speech 2 General Purpose: To weaken commitment for global warming theories. Specific Purpose: To focus on why global warming is over-dramatized Thesis: Global warming is not the problem that some people claim it is, and we need to stop letting it scare us. My audience is a group of voters influenced by the ideas surrounding global warming. They see global warming, and its causes, as serious threats to the world climate, and are willing to vote and influence new legislation to attempt to combat what they think is a serious problem. My purpose with this speech is to weaken their commitment to stopping global warming, and perhaps convince them that it is not the problem that they think it is. To help my audience see my point, I want to emphasize the other problems facing the world today, and convince my audience that by ignoring global warming we can better focus on these other problems. I understand that the audience disagrees with me, so I need to focus on our common ground and not belittle the audience. At the same time, I recognize that the audience would be willing to dismiss or belittle what I say, so I need to earn their respect during this speech. Section II Outline Using Problem-Solution I.

(Thesis) Global warming is not the problem that some people claim it is, and we need to stop letting it scare us. C. Common ground
