Is anyone here interested in the controversies surrounding oil drilling, offshore drilling, and the like? I am not sure exactly what interests potential debaters but if anyone is interested, we can narrow down a resolution relating to oil. There is a lot of research required so I don't want to post an opening argument if it seems like no one will accept. The last opening challenge I posted (before my current debate) expired for instance.

All I ask in the contender is that you as 18 or over and have as many wins or more wins than me.

What is your basic position (of course a specific resolution would need to be worked out)?

BP [just picking a random oil company] should focus further on drilling for oil (CON)
