    Use of evidence: 2.5 2.5
    Delivery skill: 4 2.5
    Coherence of arguments: 4 3
    Responsiveness to opponent: 4 3.5
    Identification of key points: 4 3
    Comments: Clear organization of main points and responsiveness to the other side. Would like to see more evidence and examples to support your claims. Could make more clear that you are a step in the right direction toward a bio-centric approach because you are trying to protect the eco-systems. For me, delivery is a barrier as I understand stand these debates as engaging in public argument and deliberation. Argument is fine, could focus more on the proposition specifically and less on the resolution. Or do more work linking them together. More examples and evidence would help your persuasiveness. Maybe focus more on how treaty protection doesn't actually stop corporate exploitation.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Kana Shoji

    Reason for Decision:

    I vote for the proposition because they provide a clearer path to protecting microbial life and ecosystems from corporate exploitation through a treaty mechanism.
