    Comments: Great job. I feel like your first speech was great, but in the second one it felt like you were less prepared - giving only a few analytic responses to his geothermal argument. It seemed like you eventually went all in on a procedural argument against his use of proposing geothermal, and that is totally fair game for you to do. however, to win a procedural argument you need to put a lot more work into it. You need to prove that he did something that put you at a disadvantage, showing clear evidence of that throughout the debate, and then explain the negative impact on us such a violation has. In this case i disagree that there was abuse, and you dont put in the work needed to get a procedural vote. In the future - if someone brings up an alternative you were not expecting, it would be worth putting a moment to research their argument and try to negate it on point. Highly responsive, clear and well put. I appreciate your use of evidence to counter her analytic arguments against geothermal. You oppose nuclear and promote geothermal clearly. You explain why this is fair ground, and weight the two against each other successfully.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Lucas Hinds

    Reason for Decision:

    Great debate! This seems to have comedown to a faulty assumption made by Katelyn - that being to oppose the resolution you must defend fossil fuels. The prop job is to convince me that nuclear is the best solution and should therefore replace fossil fuels worldwide. The opposition has the option to defend the current world (fossil fuels) or agree fossil fuels are bad but prove there is a BETTER solution. By proving there is a better solution, and you essentially letting up on arguing against it, i am convinced that geothermal is a better solution than nuclear, therefore i would not want to agree with the resolution statement being nuclear should replace fossil fuels.
