    Comments: strengths: good volume, good rate of delivery/speed
    places to improve: the first 24 seconds of the first speech it was hard to tell how this content related to the resolution. typically the first part of the first constructive defines terms or clarifies the debaters' stance on the resolution, or simply states the resolution. when you use statistics and other numbers, make sure to identify the source of research by way of a verbal citation. for example, where is the information about france's use of nuclear power from?
    strengths: good hand gestures, good rate/speed of delivery, good volume
    places to improve: when you use statistics and other numbers, make sure to identify the source of research for where you got your information from. try to vary phrases a bit more. the phrase "I think" was used over ten times in this short speech.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Jake Farrell

    Reason for Decision:

    This was a good debate https://speechdebate.binghamton.edu/images/smilies/smile.gif

    In the end, the proposition's main points were that fossil fuels must be replaced by nuclear power because fossil fuels are bad and nuclear power can be better for the environment and cheaper than fossil fuels. the opposition's main points were that other alternatives such as wind and solar are available and nuclear power risks some consequences such as meltdowns and accidents. the proposition explained the likelihood is rare for those types of accidents.

    It could have really changed the decision if either team were able to provide more evidence/outside research or examples from other countries that have increased levels of wind, solar, or nuclear power to help their case.
