    Comments: You've got some good ideas here, but, as your opponent points out, you need to be sure to think the situation all the way out.

    Thanks for participating... Stick with debate! I watched you improve just over the course of these speeches.

    This was so much fun. You've obviously done this a lot, but I want to thank you for being gracious and gentle with this young debater. I think he learned a lot this week.

    I read the citations before the debate started and was wondering how yours woul come into play.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Benjamin Allen

    Reason for Decision:

    I side with the opposition on this one, that we must hold our own protection above or at least equal to protection of extraterrestrial ecosystems and organisms.

    Thanks both of you. I enjoyed this a lot. I'm going to go measure my petri dishes now.
