Electric CarGeneral Purpose: To persuadeSpecific Purpose: To persuade my audience to buy an electric car..Organizational Pattern: Problem-Cause-SolutionINTRODUCTIONAttention Getter: Have you ever wonder, how we as humanity can come together and work to eliminate the threats that affect our planet earth such as  Co2 emissions, Greenhouse gases, Nitrogen oxide. etc.?Relevance to Audience: with the sudden change in the earth’s climate and the growing need of saving the environment, we can work together and reduce this threat to our environment by moving to all electric cars. While many say that electric cars limit you from traveling because it has a limited range due to its battery, but with the latest innovations in the battery technology this issue has been solved with batteries which could be charged faster and can last longer.Credibility Statement: The research I have done in the past few months on the topic of electric cars are accurate and trustable, I have asked one of the executives at Tesla store located in Oakbrook, and have looked into the technology carefully.Thesis: So, today we will talk about how electric cars are a better and a safer option.Preview: To do so, let’s first define the growing problem, second, list the causes, and third and finally discuss the solutions to solve the problem.BODYLet’s look at the growing problems around us.According to USA Today. A well known american media outlet states that “From Ophelia to Harvey, we’ve had 10 Atlantic hurricanes this year. Puerto Rico was hit especially hard, with nearly all of its 3.4 million U.S. citizens without electricity and more than a third without access to safe drinking water a month after the storms.”  This is just about the United States, there were a lot of countries which were affected such as India, United Kingdom, Ireland, Spain, china, Bangladesh, and many African countries. According to an article written by Michael Oppenheimer. He says “The earth has exhibited a warming trend over most of the past 150 years, The past  decade has been warmer than any other previous one. Overall, the earth has warmed over 0.8°C (about 1.5°F) since the late nineteenth century. That increase is very significant in the historical context, and is the beginning of a much larger warming that is inevitable unless emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are brought under control.”This shows how important it is to control the emissions that we produce daily.With the recent meltdown in the largest glacier in the east Antarctica, the sea level is rising due to the emissions released into the earth’s atmosphere, and many states are at risk including Florida and New York.Air pollution is next on our list, It is one of the main causes of death around the globe. The number of people who die in US is above 200,000 each year, and it is said that in India air pollution kills more than half a million people each year.TRANSITION: Now let’s move on to the cause of this problem.Every problem has a cause and the cause of this problem is us, human beings. Now let’s take a look at some of the causes. The cars that we drive are one of the main source of this problem. Gas cars are one of the largest contributor to air pollution, which just doesn’t affect the environment but it also affects our health. When car engine is running it emits several different types of gases into the environment, these gases have detrimental effects on the environment.Specially when there is a traffic congestion the chances of air pollution and toxics being released into the atmosphere increases.Because of the dangerous gases being released into the atmosphere we have made a hole in the ozone layer. According to an article written on October, 25th 2017 It says “The ozone hole forms and disappears on an annual basis in springtime over Antarctica. The world has been acting since the 1980s to prevent it from spreading as far as Australia.”It is mainly caused by carbon dioxide, it is formed when coal, oil, and natural gas are burned to create electricity or to run your gas cars. Carbon dioxide spreads around the planet like a blanket and gas cars are one of the biggest source which releases carbon dioxide. Ozone layer helps us by stopping harmful radiations entering the earth from the sun. if we get exposed to it, it will cause cancer and destroy our DNA and skin cells.TRANSITION: now that we have talked about cause let’s move to the solution.By looking at the problems you might think it’s impossible to find a solution, but there are not one but several solutions to this problem.According to ” Electric cars are 100 percent eco-friendly as they run on electrically powered engines. It does not emit toxic gases or smoke in the environment as it runs on clean energy source.” .Electric cars can help reduce the dangerous gases emitted into the earth’s atmosphere .The research shows that the U.S alone is responsible for 1.7 billion tons of C02 emitted into the atmosphere, on the other hand electric cars emit zero emissions which is a game changer.And they have no effect on our health negatively.Electric cars are easy and cheaper to maintain, for example the monthly cost for owning a tesla is $8, and that is the in home electric use from charging it. According to Generation X Finance, an average person in the United States could end up spending around $220-$250 on gas per month, which is a lot more than electric cars.Many countries around the world are planning to switch to all electric vehicles. According to an article,The New World of Electric Cars. “Internationally, the inability of petrol and diesel vehicle manufacturers to eliminate pollutants has led the French and British governments to propose the banning of all petrol and diesel engine vehicles and replacing them with all-electric vehicles by 2040.”CONCLUSIONThesis/Summary: Following what I just said, in order for us and our future generations to live a sustainable life switching to electric cars is a more efficient idea. With that being said, we as the future of this world should try to make this possible and serve our environment.  Memorable Close: Just like what the billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk have said  “When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favor.”BIBLIOGRAPHYRhea Suh, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Vanessa Nadal.
