Pro

it is clearly that companies causing environmental problems should be taxed more (carbon tax) because they have to pay for what they have done. they bring lots of disease to our life, 'killing' lots and lots of people. they also wasted the environment nature resources. by taxing them, the government can slow down the " Global warming"

Con

My opponent is making a claim and hasn't provided any evidence as to why the claim is true. He's just said stuff. The thing about debate is that you can't just say stuff without backing it up with some evidence or reasoning. For this reason, my opponent is literally incapable of winning this debate. Thus, I will not provide arguments as they're unnecessary.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro just asserted his arguments, and Con pointed this out. Also, Con's S/G was better. Unfortunately, this is usually how 1 round debates go.
