Hoffman’s analogies can be used to help develop a climate change approach. The metaphors were used successfully to start a conversation about climate change. The analogy used to create a conversation about climate change in Chapter 5 is based on whether one gives a positive or negative response to the question that has been asked about the development of the human species and technology and how they lead to climate change. This is successful because it catches a person’s attention and leads to a conversation about climate change. The second aspect of the analogy that has been used in creating a discussion about climate change is based on the positive or negative answer that one gives to the question that has been posed regarding the growth of the human species and technology and how they lead to climate change. This is effective as it captures the attention of an individual leading to a discussion about climate change. The second aspect of analogy is found in chapter six whereby Hoffman has used a conversation between two people which is linked to how they both view the issue of climate change which triggers a discussion on the subject.
The evidence that I would apply to draw the attention of an individual to an understanding that they can embrace is through making them understand the issue instead of forcing them to renounce some of the beliefs that they have about the matter. Through understanding, there is the elimination of the scolding of an individual based on how he or she views the issue under discussion as well as eliminating any act of disrespect which ensures that there is the building of trust that can be used to further persuade a person into embracing a new form of thinking. Furthermore, through understanding the political climate that surrounds the debate is critical in changing the opinion of an individual because issues like climate change tend to be political in nature.
