The way I see it, if you don't have enough time to debate...
why challenge someone to a debate?
As poojabajaj 85 did to me?

i m sorry to leave debate like that..lets come to the point...
if u r are saying we are not causing it....then arent deforestation done by us...removal of plants is not done naturally!!!!
shelbih

Con

deforestation?
and yes deforestation is done by us...
plants produce oxygen...and we breathe oxygen so we need plants! no one should cut down plants and trees and everything.
ok..totally new debate topic..

thats like me starting a debate over who will win the 2008 election and then coming off saying "no one should eat animals! they are living beings like us too!" ( i am 100% not vegan, but this is just for example)

you had your opening argument

WE RE RESPONSIBLE FOR ITS ACCELERATION...DEFORESTATION FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF BUILDINGS ....UNCONTROLLED POLLUTION

ok thats just fragments and crazy talk and a lot of different topics in one opening argument..

if you wanted to debate over deforestation, then you should have had another debate topic. debate over what the topic is or don't debate at all. don't switch subjects again.

but back to my argument

"if u r are saying we are not causing it....then arent deforestation done by us...removal of plants is not done naturally!!!!"

(it should be isn't...not aren't)

and i agree with you about the plant thing..
but i'm debating the theory of human emmissions cause the current warming trend, which they don't.

the debate isn't over whether deforestation causes global warming.

firstly u should be clear about on what topic you wanna debate to occur.. and will be the correct way to put the topic in the forum.
its very laughable that u r escaping my arguments by changing the issue...
when i was talking about human are responsible ...u told debate is on how they are causing but not how they are accelearting...
when i put deforestation u said u were talking about harmful emissions by human and not deforestation...
lastly, i am deabating on global warming and not switching to another topic....which u will only understand if i provide u this information that deforestation and both pollution control are the causes of global warming.

I tried to be open-minded about this, but I'm just not going to vote at all.

I do however find it laughable that shelbih is correcting poojabajaj_85's grammar in Round 3, when she can't be bothered to properly capitalize or punctuate her own arguments. HA! How's that for living in a glass house and tossing stones?

YEs, more facts...and also,

the header is "HUMANS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR GLOBAL WARMING"

and shelbih started her opening argument as:

"I do agree with you that we are partially responsible for global warming"

so, I am a bit confused on who is saying what.

I need more facts from the both of you. But I must confess Shelbih makes more sense here...
