    Use of evidence: 5.5 5.3

    Coherence of arguments: 6 6
    Responsiveness to opponent: 6 5.8
    Identification of key points: 6 5.5
    Comments: You did an incredible job. The only recommendation I would make is doing more direct impact comparison. You spend most of this round on the link and evidence level. You did a amazing job, I think your evidence comparison was incredible. However, I also think the concession of the cadmium point was problematic for your arguments.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Ian Chung

    Reason for Decision:

    This was a very very close round that took me a great deal of time to resolve. I end up voting aff because I am not convinced that solar panels are significantly safer or ready for immediate use. I did not vote on the idea that individuals will have to buy their own solar panels as it was new in the last speech. However, I think this would have been a good point if it was brought up earlier. I almost vote on the idea that certain people will be forced to live next to power plants, but in a world of solar panels everyone will be forced to live next to cadmium leaks. I wish this impact comparison had been done more directly.
