There are some "errors" in the video because I changed the rounds and time to argue to suit my opponent's needs.
It might still be processing when you upload it. Darned slow Youtube!

I babbled on about for a while but I think you get the idea. The 1 billion people getting hungry fact is presented in source [1], if my talking isn't very clear.

FINAL ROUND!! :D
Whoa you have a really heavy accent! It was a bit hard to hear what you were saying but I think I got most of your arguments.

It might still be processing if you view it too early on.

Good debate. Vote me!

Note to judges:
First, I humbly request you to drop any preconcieved

notions and bias you might have on this subject and vote solely on the
arguments presented IN this debate.And also my opposition has failed to
provide actual links to his R3 arguments in the debate. Thus, I'm at a
position wherein, I can't verify the credibility of the potrayed
information. In this round I have assumed the arguments to be true and
have given rebuttals for the same but judges are not required to do so
and have the ultimate discretion to decide on whether if the references
provided are to be accounted as actual sources.









I advocate for a CON ballot :)

Reasons for voting decision: Can't go deep into details, so I'll keep this concise. Pro's arguments weren't strong enough. And even those were refuted well enough by Con. Pro's rebuttals seemed half-hearted, and Con's counter-rebuttals to those didn't help either. Pro did make one (maybe 2) solid argument(s), but then again, Con's rebuttals to that was convincing enough as well. Everything else seemed pretty much even. I award the debate 3-0 to Con. That being said, you people look WEIRD in the videos!
