    Comments: You do a very good job of basing your arguments on evidence. You also have a good and persuasive delivery. It was good that you returned to your original points in the end, but it would be good to continue them through all your speeches. It would also be helpful if you addressed his criticisms in the same order as he made them. Great job! You have a very persuasive and compelling delivery. It is great that you try to keep the debate organized, and you do a good job with signposting. You should try to use more specific evidence to support your conclusions. You should also make sure that you are addressing all your opponents' points. Great job!

    The decision is for the Opposition: Carson Collins

    Reason for Decision:

    By conceding that developing countries cannot afford to make the switch to nuclear power, the proposition loses their argument about its cost effectiveness and call into question if it is even feasible to make the transition to mostly nuclear power for all world power. While the environment debate was a bit torn between the two sides, the opposition did enough to call into question the harmful dangers of climate change as alarmist.
