Toulmin Model, Classic (Without Rebuttal): Maude Barlow "Where Has All the Water Gone?"

While Barlow's piece doesn't precisely follow the classical model (because of its lack of rebuttal), she constructs a strong structure here in defense of her claim. Note how she follows point (or grounds) after point (or grounds) with continually infused information to support the claim and specific topic per paragraph. Again, where this deviates from the traditional model is in its lack of rebuttal (concession and refutation of the most likely objection to her claim which would be: we are not running out of water).
