This debate will be done in the LD format. I am taking the neg position, so I will post my argument after my opponent posts their argument.

1. Round 1: affirmative posts their argument
2. Round 2: I post my argument and attack my opponent's argument, my opponent then does their first rebuttal
3. Round 3: I post my rebuttal, and go over voting issues, my opponent posts their rebuttal and goes over their voting issues

I shall accept your challenge!!!

Environmental protection, in the long run, is better for developing (and fully developed) countries. The environment also concerns those not in the country and should be treated with care.

I guess I will begin

1. Protection is better for everyone- We need to protect our environment. By protecting our environment we improve air quality, water quality, and depending on whether one believes in global warming, control climate change. Other countries are affected by the damage done to ecosystems. People are affected by pollution and health problems such as coughing, chest pains, and even death. http://www.aqmd.gov...

2. Destruction of environment is bad for developing countries- Developing countries need to conserve their resources. Destroying resources is only a short term solution. Long term problems may include damage of the ecosystem, smog, or polluted water supplies. Natural disasters may also occur such as earthquakes or floods. Using resources is ok, but without certain restraints a valuable resource can be destroyed.

Please respond... I have lost much of my motivation

A message to all: please do not make a debate and then not even log on for a week. It is a waste of everyone's time.
