Nuclear power presents the only viable option for reducing CO2 output

GreenFuture
gannon260

Rounds: One opening statement each, two rebuttals and then one open to floor/closing. Nuclear power is not only a safe and reliable source of power but also when considered the most cost effective source of electricity currently available. Even taking into consideration all nuclear incidents globally, this includes mining, fuel purification, plant operation, waste disposal, construction and material transport the number of life years lost as a result is considerably less than those lost s...

Are aliens real?

Eva91
Layi154

Since I was little I always believed in them. There are tons of galaxies out there and I think that it is impossible that we are the only ones to be living. Everyone would be so afraid of them if they came in our planet but seriously? Movies show them killing us and being mean and experementing on us. If we found an alien (which we did in my opinion) first thing we would do is experiment on him. Honestly we're no different. Point is, I believe in "Aliens" ,does anyone else?...

Global Warming is mostly natural and a waste of our time and money to stop it

jamesjewison0011

Global Warming has been highly exaggerated. If you understand climate you should realize there are much more aspects to our atmosphere than CO2 caused by humans . CO2 caused by humans make up less than 4 percent of the C02 in our atmosphere yet politicians believe that we are to blame and that we must try to save the planet through some sort of carbon tax which while magically make the climate change. The simple facts are that CO2 is a RESULT of temperature changes NOT a cause. The climate graph...

Climate Change is man caused

I-AM-AWESOME
Jupiter1

My position on climate change is that not only do I believe in it but I believe it is man caused. I will start My opening argument to state that global warming is a proven fact and anyone that disagrees with me is ignorant on this subject. 97% of scientists believe that climate change is primarily human caused. Also the arguments stated by Human-caused climate change deniers are pointless and not fact driven. I wish my opponent the best of luck. Sources(s): Shaftel, H. (Ed.). (2012, Janua...
