Ill be aff against 

tl32501

1AC will be posted tomorrow after I get home from school, should be able to knock out a lot of the debate then. 

 

I get out @ 3pm CST

 

Also, to make sure I get this right, can someone help me find the word count of the 1AC? I'm new at that type of thing.

FYI, I loved this aff on the Transportation Topic! I ran it all year. Good Aff!

Also, your word count is around 3,000

Cross-Ex

1. What ports does the plan dredge?

2. What impacts does the aff solve for?

3. Do you defend the entirety of the 1AC?

4. How much does the plan cost?

5. Does the plan involve any R&D into new technology? Or does the technology we already have solve?

6. What does the aff plan do with the sediment after the port has been dredged?

7. How do you solve for Heg?

8. Do you claim Fiat?

9. How long does it take to dredge a port?

10. How much does the plan spend?

11. How do you solve for Sea Level rise?

Might be some follow-ups, if that is okay

1. What ports does the plan dredge?


All 14 major us coastal ports


2. What impacts does the aff solve for?


The ones in the 1AC


3. Do you defend the entirety of the 1AC?


Yes, but reserve the right to sever and concede


4. How much does the plan cost?


4.4 billion dollars


5. Does the plan involve any R&D into new technology? Or does the technology we already have solve?


We have the tech now.


6. What does the aff plan do with the sediment after the port has been dredged?


Its processed into non toxic sediment


7. How do you solve for Heg?


By growth differential


8. Do you claim Fiat?


We claim the right to pass plan


9. How long does it take to dredge a port?


It can be done in around a day depending on port size, but it doesnt require the port to close and is non disruptive to all activities


10. How much does the plan spend?


The money we allocate to it


11. How do you solve for Sea Level rise?


Sea level rise can't solve depth because silt is the problem


 


Follow ups are cool.

Sorry about the word count. I still dont know how to count it so its hard to even make cuts to the 1ac to stay in the limits.

1. what ports are those?

2. and those impacts are?

11. sorry, can you restate that? i don't understand what you are trying to say

 

So do you want cord count to be 3000 for constructives and 1800 for rebuttals?

How to wordcount:
Highlight everything you want "read" (THIS INCLUDES TAGS AND RELEVANT CITES)

Find->advanced find->formatting->highlight

The word count should display x/(x+y), the top number is the number of words highlighted, aka the word count.

 

Highlight ie the tool for it, like make the text yellow/blue/green/etc., not just selecting the text.

or if you have verbatim 5 turn on invisibility mode and erase all the citation information not being read

1. what ports are those?


all of them.


2. and those impacts are?


trade competitiveness and coastal erosion are what we solve for. [specifically growth differential, agricutural competitiveness, and energy infrastructure, which is another competitiveness claim] brackets are highlighting what snarf said.


11. sorry, can you restate that? i don't understand what you are trying to say


sea level rise doesnt solve for our impacts and the only way you could solve for it is to stop glaciers from melting.

sounds good to me

Remember that there is a difference between an impact scenario and the impacts themselves.
