|Comments:||Good constructive. Well structured and lays out a good case. Though there could have been more of an impact stated. You had the time to give more evidence that FF use is bad, rather than trusting I would get it. Your 1.8 million deaths from pollution argument in your closing would have been better used here. And a climate change impact (war, famine, etc) would be good to have here. But good job.||In your constructive you laid out the strong arguments on the potential risks and costs of NE but this could have been developed a bit more. Your speech was a bit short at 2:28, did it cut off prematurely? Also, I think arguing other renewable/ sustainable energy options can save our problems without a resort to NE might have helped. But good job responding to your opponent's arguments.|
The decision is for the Proposition: Bray Krumenacker
Reason for Decision:
By the end of the round, Nuclear Energy is an abundant resource, that would more than satisfy our energy needs in place of dangerous fossil fuels. There are costs and risk associated with Nuclear Energy, however, those risks are low and can largely be mitigated. Thus the Proposition is justified.
