    Comments: Great job! Remember in your rebuttals to explain the main reason the judge should vote for you, especially when you're affirmative, because you need to prove a beneficial change away from the status quo. The argument about acidified fish is tricky, but I think this is best answered with arguments about the devastating impacts of climate change such as ocean acidification. Great job! I think a lot of the arguments in your second speech should have been in your first speech, as they were responding more to your opponents first speech and not her second. I'm not sure what benefit your framework argument brings you as you both end up agreeing and it isn't really utilized by you after the first speech. However, you arguments were really well organized and creative!

    The decision is for the Opposition: Ramon Perez Flaquer

    Reason for Decision:

    You both did great in this debate! I vote negative because while the argument may seem ridiculous, the argument about mutated and radioactive fish impacting the food chain and causing cancer in humans is the most well warranted impact by the end of the debate. I think that the suffering from the slow and painful impacts from radioactivity penetrating ecosystems should be avoided, and thus, we should not switch to nuclear energy. I come close to voting on the argument that these cases are exceptions as opposed to the weekly accidents that arise from fossil fuels, but I do not have an impact that explains the negative effects of fossil fuel spills, as well as a unique reason why nuclear energy is preferable.
