Con

I feel that global warming is a huge issue, it is destroying our earth! It is harming animals and our environment. Without putting a stop to this, there could be many more problems in later time. We are already using so much of the Earth and destroying it by using too many natural resources, but by causing more global warming, we are making it harder for the Earth to catch up with us using all its sources. Its hard for the Earth to support us so we need to keep that in mind and make sure we are not causing global warming and hurting the earth.

Pro

I would like to thank my opponent for this debate.

I agree with my opponent's argument! However, since my opponent chose to choose the side of Con, she was supposed to argue that Global Warming was not an issue. Everything she says indicates that global warming is an issue, so her case is self-defeating! I use her argument to show that global warming is an issue. Therefore, I encourage voters to vote Pro.

http://www.truthmove.org... --- This source, which my opponent helpfully gives in support of my position, elaborates further on how global warming is an issue.

>Reported vote: doctorcsss // Moderator action: Removed<

5 points to Pro (arguments, sources). Reasons for voting decision: Well even though I don't agree with Pro or Con, Pro actually argued the right side of the argument so I will have to give it to them.

[*Reason for removal*] (1) Failure to explain sources. (2) Failure to explain arguments - no explanation offered for why Pro was more persuasive. (3) Possible bias: what is "the right side of the argument"?

The topic of global warming is a very difficult one to assess because of the complexity of it all. I believe though that global warming is a definite issue. The good and bad aspects of global warming will vary significantly depending on the area it affects. For more intermediate change in climate, the changes can be difficult to measure. But the greater the alteration in climate, the more destructive the effect will become. Global warming would make life harder, not easier, for almost every individual. This is due to the society and infrastructure that was built to better suit the climate we have today. Our food crops, other vegetation, domesticated and wild animals, and the sea animals and habitat that communities rely on in a particular area may be unable to adjust to local, regional or global changes in our climate. Also variations of diseases and some pest (insect or animals) that are controlled by the temperature may grow, if the environmental conditions are favorable. So yes global warming is a huge problem.

By taking the Con side, you are supposed to disagree that it is a huge issue.
