|Use of evidence:||3.9||5.9|
|Coherence of arguments:||3.9||5|
|Responsiveness to opponent:||4.1||6|
|Identification of key points:||4.2||5|
|Comments:||You have a good case as far as it goes, but don't really solve the problem of lack of enforcement of international law. You also don't provide evidence that we will be able to protect all life at the highest priority and still explore.||Excellent response to your opponent and great use of evidence. My only objection was that if we really have this as an overriding obligation and therefore don't explore, that actually frees up a lot of resources to address other problems, but she didn't say that so I don't vote on it.|
The decision is for the Opposition: Ahmad Amireh
Reason for Decision:
I vote for the Opp based on lack of solvency of the Prop case because of the lack of enforcement of international law.
Nice job both debaters; congratulations on breaking and thanks for playing.
