The arrangement of McKibben’s article is organized and thoughtful because it is easy to read and follow. Ifi parts of the article were to be arranged differently, the article would not change its meaning because he establishes cause and effect method to prove his position. At the beginning of the second paragraph the author tells us in a straight forward manner that his argument is about “to meat or not to meat”, which has a lot of points to it. McKibben says that eating flesh is gross and a major cause of climate change through cause and effect. For example he states that “going vegan is 50 percent more effective in reducing greenhouse gas emissions than switching to a hybrid car” (par. 2). This point supports his controversial point that eating less meat would benefit the environment. It leads meat-eaters to see the benefits that being vegans has, and leads them to stand on his side.
Bill McKibben is a well known environmental author and also the founder of 350.org, a campaign website on solving climate crisis. He wrote and published many books about global warming and climate change. He is also a board member
