During the past few years, our society has become a lot more conscious, about what of an ongoing badly off track the world is on. What of an impact the greenhouse effect has.
One of Biden`s main goals, which contributed to his election, was to keep the goal of limiting global warming to just 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Appealing to the audiences’ emotions and evokes their pity to do what’s right. Which once again helps to achieve the audience attention and make it more personal, in some way.
