Is Saving the Environment Worth it?
Debate Rounds (3)
First off, my opponent states that he would like to save the environment because it is worth it but he does not provide any specifics about doing so. How and in what way does he intend to save the environment? How does he define "saving the environment" "the paradise we never had"? Is not enough done now?
Thank you and I look forward to having a great debate with you!

Unfortunately my opponent has forfeited the round which thus left the debate hanging.
Since this is the last round, I will not dwell too deep into this debate. My opponent did not define the term "saving the environment" in a well manner, so I will provide the definition.
Environment - the aggregate of surrounding things, conditions, or influences; surroundings; milieu.
Also, my opponenent seems to be confused about the objective of this debate. He needs to argue whether saving the environment is "worth it" or not (the extra effort, money and time), but he seems to be advising everyone to save the environment instead of proving his point. His burden of proof is confusing and not related to this debate. Moving on, what's wrong with the status quo of the environment right now? Why should we spend extra money and effort to "make things better" around us? Most of us have a comfortable home, a lovely garden, a high-speed broadband connection and so on. What needs to be improved in our environment? Nothing much! Should we spend extra money and manpower to make our surroundings a better place when it already is? Thus the question, "is it worth it?"
If the influence of the surroundings doesn't seem to suit you, you could always walk away or do something else. For example, if you think that a TV show being aired right now is profane and vulgar, you could always change the channel, or simply walk away. Do we need to spend more money and infringe on civil rights to stop shows like this from being aired to "improve our environment"? I certainly do not think so. If your surroundings does not seem to please you (messy, dirty, "the paradise we never had"), you could simply fix it yourself by rearranging things to suit your taste , cleaning, etc. You would not need a whole legion of people to help you save the environment. It is just such a simple concept. I have made my points concise and clear to why saving the environment "isn't worth it" or more clearly, "isn't worth the extra effort". May the best debater win!
