Establishing a $15 per ton carbon tax that increases by 3.5% each year until capped at $80 per ton

On May 11th, 2017, the director of National Intelligence testified to the U.S. House of Representatives about the greatest threat facing the United States. It wasn"t terrorism, it wasn"t nuclear weapons, and it wasn"t Russia. It was climate change. Something that poses a threat not only to the existence of our military bases worldwide but to the existence of humanity. And that is why we must address this key issue, but a carbon tax goes about it in exactly the wrong way. First, the impact of es...

Eating meat is unethical

This argument has been formulated by vegan youtuber Ask Yourself, in this video he tackles point by point the most common arguments used by non-vegans. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ueqDkY3aNAY&t=1358s It is a long video but to be fair non-vegans have a lot of retarded arguments. If the video is too long I'll try an summarize it here, but before debating this topic I encourage you to familiarize yourself with the counter arguments. Let's cast aside the 4 N's http://rvgn.org/2015/08/22/...

Abortion should be legal

Hello, I'm just a 13 year old kid who just like to debate. So the argument is abortion should be legal because people can choose to have a kid or not, and forcing them can suffer the child and the parent. Making it illegal will make women who want to abort go to dangerous place that can harm them and possibly kill them. Unborn baby only feel pain at 20 weeks and most of these abortion is when the women life is in danger....

Legalizing Euthanasia

XCalex
Opinionative

Death is final. For people battling illness, one day they may get out of bed and be ready to give up, and the next day they may be prepared to fight. This is just part of the human condition. But legalizing euthanasia would be like giving someone a loaded gun. On a day when they"re depressed or in pain " like when they"ve just received a terminal diagnosis " they may just pull the trigger. First, euthanasia undermines medical research. This is true because one of the major driving forces behin...

Animal cruelty and abuse should be held equal to human cruelty and abuse

N.G-Debate
johnvictor

Humans are animals. The only difference between us and a dog is that we have a slightly higher brain capacity. In the UK pets are considered to be property of the owner, if the owner of a pet decided to abuse it then they would receive a fine and possibly time in jail, if very severe. However if this owner decided to abuse their child they would be jailed and the child would be protected, never to see the parent again. Both are living sentient creatures yet one is given more rights than another...

Gay Marriage

buildingapologetics
John_C_1812

While I object to gay marriage morally, this debate is more about the legality. This debate is about what is commonly referred to as "legalizing gay marriage". I add quotes because I don't think this most accurately describes the debate at hand. No one (at least that I have met) is proposing that we should make gay marriage illegal. In fact, at least in recent history, gay marriage has not been illegal. The question we must ask is not, "should gay marriage be legal or allowed?". The question...
