Acceptance Please for first round! First time using this website: I prefer LD debates but am fine with Pofo Style debates as well. Let's limit the theory and kritik usage as well.

My arguments, since he's probably not going to show up:

1. There's no reason we have to prioritize one over the other. There are plenty of environmentally friendly ways to extract usable resources from the Earth. This negates the resolution as a statement, since if I show that we shouldn't prioritize something over something, that negates the resolution.

2. Resource extraction is a requirement to even access environmental protection benefits. Most environmental protection projects are costly, meaning we need some form of capital to undertake them. The only way that developing countries will be able to afford such measures would be to extract resources to build up enough capital to be able to afford protecting the environment. That means that the NC precludes the AC, as the only way we can get access to AC benefits is through negating first.
