Non Sequitur-A conclusion that does not follow logically from preceding statements or that is based on irrelevant data. Example 1: Mary loves children, so she will make an excellent school teacher. Example 2: People died of cancer before cigarettes were invented, so smoking doesn't cause cancer.

Red Herring-An argument that focuses on an irrelevant issue to detract attention from the real issue. Example 1: We can't worry about the environment, we're in the middle of a war. Example 2: In order to really look at the problem of global warming, we must first consider how the homeless suffer when it is cold.
Force and Fear-The ad baculum fallacy is committed whenever the proponent of an argument attempts to persuade the audience to accept the conclusion...by predicting (or causing) unpleasant consequences. Example 1: Study your notes or you will fail the test. Example 2: Believe me or else you'll fail this course!
