Appeal to Authority - Improper appeal to authority. An example is when a 
Nobel laureate in chemistry writes an opinion about a subject she is not 
an expert such as political science and people then cite him as an 
authority about political science believing that being considered and 
expert in one area means they are knowledgeable about others.    (02)
