This Persuasive speech “The ozone layer – our vanishing protector” is extremely topical just now. It persuades us that unless we take quick action the hole in the ozone layer will have disastrous consequences for all of us. It says that some Governments have not taken the action necessary because of vested interests, such as the oil industries. It says that we need to see a bigger picture than short term profit because it will end in long term disaster. The short poem summarizes the Persuasive speech “The ozone layer – our vanishing protector” and adds an interesting and compelling ending to it.
