My stance is that we should be more concerned about the environment.

Format:
1- Acceptance
2- Arguments
3- Arguments
4- Arguments
5- Closing statements and rebuttals

I have three main points (more will be added)

1. Animals are going extinct due to habitat loss [1]

2. We are losing our clean water due to pollution [2]

3. We are losing food and water due to pollution, so that could lead to war [3]

The format says Round 1 is for acceptance but Pro stated brief arguments so I assume I am to do the same.

1 - We already are concerned enough about the environment, that is why all of Pro's sources involve data and reports already considered valid and important by modern day society.

2 - We are losing clean water to hydraulic power production which requires large amounts of water to work and is supported by environmentalists.[1][2]

3 - We're all going to die so why prolong the inevitable for no net gain?

4 - It is not use who should be more concerned about the environment but the environment who would be more concerned about us since we can damage it far more efficiently and strategically than it can damage us. We are the superior competitor.
