How To Present Information To Support Your Case

Education : English

We've seen that one popular tactic to get your point across and persuade others of its veracity is to state lots of facts then give a supporting opinion.

Another popular method used is to blur the lines between fact and opinion, so you may think you are reading a fact, when in fact it is opinion masquerading as fact.

Look at this statement:

- Opened fizzy drink cans produce massive amounts of carbon dioxide every day - and hence increase global warming greatly.

The first part may be fact, that carbon dioxide escapes from opened fizzy drink cans, but the second part is very debatable - there is hot dispute as to what does and does not cause global warming!
