Transcript of POSSIBLE AFFIRMATIVE CASES FOR OCEANS ~

POSSIBLE AFFIRMATIVE CASES: ~ OCEANS ~
ENERGY: off-shore oil drilling
BIODIVERSITY: Ocean Acidification/Coral Reefs
Inherency: In the past ten years the amount of bleaching events in the world’s oceans has quintupled.
Harms: hurts the fishing industry, and tourism industry as it is estimated that $1 billion is spent annually on reef tourism. More pressing is the fact that it affects the development of shells on many varieties of shellfish. Shellfish don’t have the capacity to grow a strong shell and are dying as a result.
RESOLVED: The United States Federal Government should substantially increase its non-military exploration and/or development of the Earth's oceans.
WORKS CITED
MORE BIODIVERSITY AFFS
ENERGY
BIO- DIVERSITY
Plan: The USFG should increase domestic off-shore oil drilling my implementation of Mobile Offshore Drilling Units (MODUs).
Advantage 1: Economy
Advantage 2: Oil Dependency
Solvency: Domestic oil is key to economy, domestic oil is key to reducing
oil dependency.
Inherency:
The Center for American Progress explains that the United States imports about 1.5 billion barrels of oil a year from ‘dangerous or unstable’ nations.
Possible Advantages: Biodiversity (duh), Tourism, Economy
Endangered Species – Manatees, turtles and whales are all being effected by the polluted waters of the Atlantic and overfishing of certain areas. Another could be the disastrous effects that pollution has had on coral reefs. (ex. Save the [insert endangered species here])
Roadblocks in Disease Research – Advanced teams might go for the angle of new species being researched for developments in disease. Several advancements and developments in disease research have come from discoveries of ocean wildlife.
