    Hi all!

    This is the last OpenLab homework of the semester!!

    Answer these two questions:

    1. Watch Greta Thunberg’s TED talk on the Course Calendar with Readings. Pick a moment when she uses one of the rhetorical appeals (ethos, pathos, logos) well. Quote what she says and explain why that’s an effective use of the rhetorical appeal.

    2. How can you effectively use rhetorical appeals in your own remix project? Which rhetorical appeal do you think that you’ll use the most?

    1. Watch Greta Thunberg’s TED talk on the Course Calendar with Readings. Pick a moment when she uses one of the rhetorical appeals (ethos, pathos, logos) well. Quote what she says and explain why that’s an effective use of the rhetorical appeal.
    Ethos – The talk show is credibility.
    Pathos – The way she talks makes me feel that we need to do some changes in the world.
    Logos – She is providing evidence when for her presentation.

    “Fifty percent may be acceptable to you. But those numbers do not include tipping points, most feedback loops, additional warming hidden by toxic air pollution or the aspects of equity and climate justice. They also rely on my generation sucking hundreds of billions of tons of your CO2 out of the air with technologies that barely exist.” and “So a 50% risk is simply not acceptable to us — we who have to live with the consequences.”

    This is credible because she has included statistics on how the world not doing so well and why we need some action. Pathos for this quote will be the last sentence saying it rely on my generation(which is mine too) sucking hundreds of billions of tons of your CO2 out of the air with technologies that barely exist and the risk is not acceptable for us, It immediately got my attention on how I feel about this presentation. Logos will be all the statistics she provides and how will it affect our generation.

    2. How can you effectively use rhetorical appeals in your own remix project? Which rhetorical appeal do you think that you’ll use the most?
    I had used Ethos for my own statistics on how my income is can’t afford my lifestyle. I believe most of the parttime workers like me would definitely feel pathos on statistics my of income because they most likely are facing the same problem. Logo for my remix project will probably be the quote from a passage I read about how does minimum wage is affecting public health.

    1. Ethos: TED talk is a credible and reliable talk show.
    Pathos: You can see in the emotion of the way Greta Thunberg is talking that this is a serious issue to her, and she wants to make a difference in the world.
    Logos: When she is talking about the issue of climate change, she is providing the viewer and listener with evidence on the topic and what they can due.
    Quote comes in minute 3:36 “You would think the media and every one of our leaders would be talking about nothing else, but they never even mention it.”
    This is a creditable quote because what she is saying is true if you go to any media outlet it can news channel, newspaper or article and if you even look at certain politicians today they don’t mention nothing about climate change or a strategy they plan to take to resolve this issue or if the media does talk about this it will be for that one day only and they next day completely ignore it and move on to the next interesting headline as well as out politicians some say they don’t believe in climate change that it doesn’t exist but the proof and the evidence is already out there while other politicians who agree with the issue they don’t take the drastic change to make a difference in their country and talk about the issue everyday and try to make a difference in the their country. That quote got my attention because it is very reliable and true because I always turn on my tv every morning to watch the news or look at my phone through social media and you rarely see any news headlines on climate change it is always on something else. That was an effect use of rhetorical appeal because you can see the logos and ethos being displayed throughout her entire TED talk.

    2. I feel that for my remix paper I can use rhetorical appeal very effectively because for my previous paper on my topic I had already used ethos in talking about the issue. Right now, I feel that I will be using a lot of Ethos and Logos in my remix paper to expand more on the issue at hand and explain what are some simple solutions that can be taken to solve the problem at hand.

    Ethos: The Ted talk platform gives her speech credibility.
    Pathos: Her tone get’s me and her audience feeling like we need to do better for our environment.
    Logos: She provides evidence to back her speech by talking about the earthquakes and flooding that are a result of how poorly we care for our climate.

    Quote: What we do or don’t do right now, me and my generation can’t undo in the future.

    Explanation: This quote is a credible one in the sense that, our society is well known for making things tougher for the next generation. I feel this quote is effective because most of the audience may have experienced some issues in their generation due to similar behaviors.

    2. I plan on implementing rhetorical appeals into my remix project through in order to provide valid evidence and in result giving my project credibility. I feel My project will contain lots Ethos and Logos.

    1– Ethos: the Ted y’all name makes this a very credible piece of content

    Pathos: they way she seems to talk about the environmental problem kinda motivates the views to change the way we keep our surroundings safe and clean, Kinda motivative.

    Logos: she does reference to those earthquakes and natural disasters as a peice of evidence to support her claims, the claims she is making in the show.

    Quote: “What we do or don’t do right now, me and my generation can’t undo in the future.“

    Explanation: This quote seems state how what we do now can greatly affect our future and that we need to take initiative into keeping this earth a beautifully clean place so that our future generations stay safe in safe environment. I feel this quote is effective because of the fact that this quote can change lives and environment, it will change people’s mindset and what not it is very intellectual.

    2– I will implement rhetorical appeals into my project to the best of my ability because I feel that ethos pathos logos are great terms in which I can get my reader to make sense of what my situation and solution is.

    Ethos: Ted Talk platform alone, gives her speech some credibility.
    Pathos: All i see is that shes very serious and really wants to strive for a change.
    Logos: She provides evidence about the issue of climate change and what we can do to fix it.

    Quote: “No one is acting as if we are in a crisis.”

    This quote is is very logical, shes provided the evidence to support her claim and she is simply stating the truth. The quote is effectiveness because shes provided the proof.

    I can apply rhetorical appeals by using credible sources, providing valid evidence, and expressing how i feel about my topic.

    1. Watch Greta Thunberg’s TED talk on the Course Calendar with Readings. Pick a moment when she uses one of the rhetorical appeals (ethos, pathos, logos) well. Quote what she says and explain why that’s an effective use of the rhetorical appeal.
    A moment where Greta Thunberg use logos in the TED talk when she stated “People keep doing what they do because the vast majority doesn’t have a clue about the actual consequences of our everyday life, and they don’t know that rapid change is required. We all think we know, and we all think everybody knows, but we don’t.” I think this was an effective use of the logos because it’s a fact that most people in the world don’t know what result of what they do every day. Most people assume other people will get the same idea from the news about climate change. But there are people only get the idea of climate change is bad for the world, not the fact that they could do something about it since the news often talk about how the big companies or the country can do to help the issue. Some people assume everyone knows about climate change, but people who struggle in their daily life don’t care about the issue since they just try to stay alive and don’t want to think about stuff that other people worry about.

    2. How can you effectively use rhetorical appeals in your own remix project? Which rhetorical appeal do you think that you’ll use the most?
    I use rhetorical appeal effectively in my remix project by including sources to talk about why my issue is important. I feel that I will be using mostly ethos and logos in my remix paper because I will be using graphs from sources to prove my point and show why we need to take action.

    1) Ethos – Ted talk is credible , logos- there were facts about what needed to be done in order to change what was going on in the climate. “ rich countries like sweden need to start reducing emissions by at least fifteen percent”, I thought this quote was effective because it shows that things can be done but countries aren’t taking the right measures to make it happen.
    2)I can use rhetorical appeals in my remix project by showing the emotions of the people I interviewed and using facts about the sneaker community. I’ll probably use logos and pathos in my remix.

    1. Watch Greta Thunberg’s TED talk on the Course Calendar with Readings. Pick a moment when she uses one of the rhetorical appeals (ethos, pathos, logos) well. Quote what she says and explain why that’s an effective use of the rhetorical appeal.

    some what Pathos and Logos – ” where everyone keeps saying climate change is an existential threat and the most important issue of all, yet they just carry on as before.” in this quote she’s trying play with her audience’s emotion because the way she says it will make you feel the guilt and realization * at least to me that’s how it felt*. I think it was an effective rhetorical appeal since she’s talking about climate change and how everyone is being affected by it, and using this knowledge she used her words to convey this message stronger.

    2. How can you effectively use rhetorical appeals in your own remix project? Which rhetorical appeal do you think that you’ll use the most?

    I feel like I can effectively use mine by showing emotions and facts as well through my pictures. I think Im going to use a little bit of both pathos and logos similarly to how the girl on the video used it by showing facts and also playing with emotions.

    Ethos- TED talk .
    Pathos- Greta’s speech can make some feel: Guilty, hopeful, stubborn, judgmental, worried
    Logos- Greta is using factual data in her speech
    “I think In many ways that we autistic are the normal ones, and the rest of the people are really strange.”
    I can use rhetorical appeal to make my paper way better and enjoyable for readers.

    I think Pathos would be the best rhetorical appeal to use because words can cause a whole lot of different feelings

    1.In the Ted Talk video about Greta Thunberg she uses pathos when she states “If burning fossil fuels was so bad that it threatened our very existence, How could we just continue like before? Why were there no restrictions? Why wasn’t it made illegal? To me that did not add up.”. When Thunberg is stating questions, she relates to the audience that react to detrimental things in the community that could effect their overall health. Some people create and/or think of reviews that help the community with the climate and that group of people will want to listen more to the Ted Talk because of those emotions they’ve felt while trying to change the climate. Additionally, she is taking the idea of climate seriously, which conveys that she cares. Because she is doing a ted talk about a topic that deserves concern, she is a credible speaker, which is ethos. The logos (logic) that is seen in this Ted Talk is that she uses statistics to support her claim.

    2. I can effectively use rhetorical appeals by adding correct citations, and relating back to my call to action essay that I have written and every citation that I’ve used for that essay. The rhetorical appeal that I will use mostly is pathos; If the audience hasn’t read or seen something before, I will try to make them feel suprised.

    In the beginning of her speech she uses pathos as a way to have emotion and connection with the audience. When she said “I was told to turn off the lights to save energy and to recycle paper to save resources”. The way she said it had such emotion because thats exactly what young kids were told to do. Also in her speech when she said she had fallen into depression how she stopped eating and sleeping, it was extremely emotional since she said “she was 11 years old”, like its sad because someone so young was dealing with something so difficult and painful. While she’s giving her ted talk, she has a huge connection with the connection, thats usually what your suppose to do during a speech. You have to have some engagement with the audience. When she said “Rich countries like Sweden need to start reducing emissions by at least 15 percent every year”, she gives a lot of factual evidence about things we have to change in order to save the world, which goes back to the audience, she always gave a brief insight of situations that are happening around the world to make her audience more aware of whats happening.

    2. How can you effectively use rhetorical appeals in your own remix project? Which rhetorical appeal do you think that you’ll use the most? Since i’m kind of doing a speech and writing for my remix paper, I feel as if pathos would be the best option for me. I can effectively use that to make my audience more engaged and kind of have this closeness with them.

    When she stated that “we use 100 million gallons of oil every day”, I knew that she relied on the logos and ethos of her lecture because of how she was giving facts and it is was honestly her strong suit because that is what got her there. She knew about the many resolutions and ideas spoken to fix climate change while implementing facts and backup evidence/examples of times where countries getting hit by a hurricane and the constant talk of helping but not doing. It was effective due to her examples and tone as well.

    2. How can you effectively use rhetorical appeals in your own remix project? Which rhetorical appeal do you think that you’ll use the most?

    I want to use pathos because art is a passion felt and crafted by creativity, reality, or your mind. It’s a relationship between the person and their blank canvas. I want to capture that by either my sketch of them and interview questions.

    One moment in which Geta uses Ethos is when she says, “Yet, as the IPCC has recently demonstrated aiming instead for 1.5 degrees celsius would significantly reduce climate impacts”. She uses the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change as a resource to explain her discussion and improve her credibility by using real-life sources. It’s an effective rhetorical appeal because she wants to use sources that are known so people can take this seriously and understand this is something of high importance.

    2. How can you effectively use rhetorical appeals in your own remix project? Which rhetorical appeal do you think that you’ll use the most?
    I can use rhetorical appeals effectively on my remix project to show people how important my topic is about and to add on to my resources’ credibility as well. The rhetorical appeal that’ll be most effective for me is Logos because I know as women we can all connect to my topic emotionally because of the problems we face.

    Ethos- Ted talk show. Greta Thunberg sending message through the show
    Pathos- she’s encouraging us to get up and make some changes
    Logos- she provides evidence about the environmental and what’s going on around the world.
    Quote- ”how can we expect countries like India or Nigeria to care about the climate crisis if we already have everything don’t care even a second about it or our actual commitments to the pairs agreement? ”
    This is an effective use of rhetorical appeal. This is powerful quote is an example of pathos. It touched my heart and made me feel like we should get up and make some changes in the world. I also agree with her statement.How we can educate and encourage poor countries to make some changes if we don’t seem to care about our actual commitments.

    I will use Instagram for my call it remix project which is ethos. Pathos I will use my personal experience and motivate people to take action.
