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

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...

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...

DDO Tier Tournament 2-Flat Earth Theory vs Spherical Earth Theory

Wylted
Romanii

Pro will be providing evidence for Flat Earth Theory. Con will be provided evidence of a round Earth. The debate should be determined by preponderance of evidence.There are to be no semantics with the terms round Earth or flat Earth. Neither round Earth theory or Flat Earth theory doubt topographical differences.First round is for acceptance. P.s. Romanii wanted me to add this. Round earth theory doesn't necessarily mean a perfect sphere. Just like flat Earth theory wo...

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...

Evolution is more credible than Creationism

Midnight1131
DDDDaniel

Evolution is fact. Fact in science, as described by paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould, is data, not absolute certainty but "confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional assent," One means of evolution is *natural selection*. Organisms with favourable traits are more likely to reproduce. An example of this are day flying moths, which at first were had light coloured skin, and there were a few dark skinned moths. At first the light skinned moths had a better chanc...
