      Barber, in his article “Global Climate Change: Small-Business Solution” (2007),
      asserts that our nation is becoming more involved in fighting against climate
      change. He supports this by saying that we are helping reducing climate change
      by “constructing LEED green buildings and powering them with green energy.”
      His purpose is to inform the readers of how they are helping in order to keep the
      confidence of our nation strong against this climate change and in these green
      buildings. Barber establishes a formal relationship with the readers of the article
      since he is not directly speaking to anyone, he is „speaking‟ to the people of our
      nation who are trying to improve our environment with „green‟ building.

      the environmental standards which are to use natural light, recycled materials, and
      energy efficient design. Her purpose is to describe how the library compares to
      other normal buildings in order to prove that „green buildings‟ are a much better
      choice. Bolstad establishes a formal relationship with her readers since her article
      is factual and nothing insinuates that she is taking a side.

      building companies to “go green” would bring dynamic advantages. Haggman
      supports this by explaining how there would be large savings, increased
      marketability, and a transformation of the building industry. His purpose is to help
      the building industry to understand the efficiency of “going green” in order to
      become environmentally responsible. Haggman establishes a formal relationship
      with the building companies who may be looking to further their business by
      being „eco-friendly‟.

      Web. 5 Sept. 2009.

Schwartz, in his article “Mayor, council hear of coming „green‟ revolution”

opportunities for green building because it sustains the environment. His purpose
of the article was to inform the city‟s people on how their industries will be
changing in order to introduce this new experience of green building design.
Schwartz established a formal relationship with his readers because it was a

Strongman, Cathy. “Payback Time” Spectator (2008). Article. Web. 6 Sept. 2009.

Strongman, in her article “Payback Time” (2008), suggests that the US alone will
not be enough to help with this environmental crisis. She states Britain has 26
million existing properties that turn out 41.7 million tons of carbon dioxide. If
Britain can reduce its carbon emission by %60 then we would be alright because
they would be in the same properties as before but just modified to be “green”.
Her purpose in this article is to inform the population of America that we are not
the only ones who are putting forth efforts to help and that in order to fully
attempt this environment plus plan, Britain must match what we do by two thirds.
Strongman develops a slightly informal relationship with the resident of America
by saying „we‟ and „us‟ throughout here article, establishing that she too is a part
of this and is the same as us.

environmental building, and supports the greening of the B.C. Building Code. Her
purpose is to inform the readers on how this funding will not only help the
building industries but also in order to assist in saving our environmental
problems. Victoria establishes a formal relationship with her readers by keeping
the article informative and not opinionated.

more “green” schools. Wilson establishes a formal relationship towards the
