|Use of evidence:||4.5||3.8|
|Coherence of arguments:||4.4||4.1|
|Responsiveness to opponent:||4.2||4.2|
|Identification of key points:||4.5||4.3|
|Comments:||Great points - you were a very articulate speaker. However, your arguments would be strengthened if you included some statistics or studies to illustrate your main points.||Good points - but I would mention that the harms of nuclear power extend beyond just radiation - mention things like uranium mining or the high material cost to build power plants. And it would be persuasive to use more examples to illustrate your points.|
The decision is for the Proposition: HILARY FUNG
Reason for Decision:
Good debate - it is unfortunate that there were some apparent technical issues and time discrepancies in this round but I don't think that it affected my decision. Please try to be kind and understanding of other people's issues when doing online debate.
I voted for the proposition because there is a high risk of global warming causing large impacts now while there is a relatively low risk of radiation harming people.
The proposition warranted out their argument slightly more and included framing about the timeframe of impacts which was more persuasive to me.
