Abstrakt

Badacze retoryki wskazują, że kryzysy w części zależą od percepcji audytorium, a zatem i wyborów retorycznych. Niniejszy artykuł pokazuje, jak w przemówieniu wygłoszonym na szczycie klimatycznym ONZ w 2019 r. Greta Thunberg wykorzystuje retoryczne koncepcje „teraźniejszości” i „obecności”, przedstawiając katastrofę klimatyczną jako przyszłą teraźniejszość, która musi zostać powstrzymana za wszelką cenę już teraz.
