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!
