Plan

  • Is the plan conditional or unconditional

Solar Industry

  • What is the cost of Solar Panels right now? How much would the plan decrease them to?
  • How long would it take for everyone in the U.S to convert to Solar Energy
  • Does your plan refer to Home Installations of Solar Panels, or the USFG setting up Solar Farms to counteract Fossil Fuels
  • (This is if you say the plan refers to Home Installations) Could everyone in the U.S convert themselves to Solar Energy from Fossil Fuels
  • How does Solar Energy protect the Grid from Hackers? 
  • Can you explain in your Tilford 12 evidence how cyber attacks cause nuclear war?
  • In your Scenario 2, are you trying to get rid of Fossil Fuels
  • How much do Renewables account for the U.S GDP
  • How would Renewables increase our Economic Growth

Trade Disputes

  • What's your Timeframe for your Impact (Griffin 15 evidence) 
  • What happen's if people don't comply with your plan and resist Solar Energy?
  • Can you explain your evidence on the trade wars
  • How does Solar Energy solve nuclear war

Framing 

  • Is both Framing cards, refering to why K's are bad to debate?
  • (If thats a yes) Why would policy be the best option?

Plan

  • Is the plan conditional or unconditional- conditional engagement

 

Solar Industry

  • What is the cost of Solar Panels right now? How much would the plan decrease them to?- our He evidence indicates that tariffs of 238.95% are slapped onto chinese solar panels by the commerce department b/c of a 2015 ruling- the plan would remove these tariffs entirely
  • How long would it take for everyone in the U.S to convert to Solar Energy- our ahmed evidence says US could be 100% solar by 2030 with significant disruption within 2 years
  • Does your plan refer to Home Installations of Solar Panels, or the USFG setting up Solar Farms to counteract Fossil Fuels- both solar farms and home installations
  • (This is if you say the plan refers to Home Installations) Could everyone in the U.S convert themselves to Solar Energy from Fossil Fuels- see above answer with ahmed evidence
  • How does Solar Energy protect the Grid from Hackers?- thats our sandry evidence- solar allows a decentralized grid to exist- no cyberattack could take out a decentralized grid 
  • Can you explain in your Tilford 12 evidence how cyber attacks cause nuclear war?- a cyber attack takes out the grid and power supply, including for military bases- the military would be left scrambling and would see an attack on its power supply as an act of war meriting a full military response including nukes
  • In your Scenario 2, are you trying to get rid of Fossil Fuels- YES
  • How much do Renewables account for the U.S GDP- we arent a GDP argument- rather our davis evidence says that renewables switch are key to preventing fossil fuel price volatility from shocking the economy- wild and unpredictable prices means that businesses cant predict their costs and the economy is at the mercy of fossil fuel prices which could deck the economy by taking more expenditures and money
  • How would Renewables increase our Economic Growth- see above- our argument isnt growth, rather that renewable are key to stable energy prices, allowing business to have stable costs- also prevents economy from being at the mercy of fossil fuel prices

Trade Disputes

  • What's your Timeframe for your Impact (Griffin 15 evidence)- within 20 years 
  • What happen's if people don't comply with your plan and resist Solar Energy?- that wouldnt happen bc plan allows solar to become so cheap that other forms of energy are not cost competitive
  • Can you explain your evidence on the trade wars- our wto argument is that us solar tariffs violate wto trade commitments, and wto compliance prevents nuke war with china and russia- vincent says that new solar tariffs (like the 2015 ones) lead to trade wars with china b/c they get fed up with us gamesmanship and retaliate with tariffs of their own- that causes power war as per drezner 
  • How does Solar Energy solve nuclear war- see above

Framing 

  • Is both Framing cards, refering to why K's are bad to debate?- they arent saying k's are bad for debate- they make nuanced claims- bryant says critique without political strategy dooms it to failure and delgado says reformism is good and brings revolutionary change whereas revolution fails
  • (If thats a yes) Why would policy be the best option?- see above

CX

status of the CP? Conditional 

caselist of topical affs under your interp? Artic Aff by JDI,  since people change plan texts off affs sometimes, it could be any plan text in which the U.S doesn't force the PRC into doing something, but gives them the option. 

what level of spec is enough for theory? Can you explain your question, I don't understand

 

2AC will come immediately after CX

Aspec

  • How are Agent CP's and DA's not the core of neg ground
  • How does spec cause a race to the bottom

T

  • Can you give me a brief explanations of all four DA's? It's in the Their Interpret Part. 

CP

  • How does the Consult CP kill education
  • How Are consults irrelevant 
  • How Does the Perm Not steal Neg Ground

Aspec

  • How are Agent CP's and DA's not the core of neg ground- we argue that not only are they bad arguments, but also that other things like politics DA's, country relations da's, and condition cp's are better and the core of strategy- i based this on what i've seen on the wiki
  • How does spec cause a race to the bottom- b/c it's endless- we continue to ask and ask and there's no end to how much spec negatives will demand

T

  • Can you give me a brief explanations of all four DA's? It's in the Their Interpret Part.- policymaking da (baum and shevchenko)- without conditional engagement, policymaking between us and china is impossible; diplomatic education da-(crocker 09) without conditional engagement and bargaining we cant learn about the full picture of diplomacy and engagement; contextuality da (tang 10)- the way you define engagement is actually appeasement which is fundamentally a distinct concept; resnick da (resnick 01)- blurring distinction between engagement and appeasement wrecks limits and precision- also guts ability to create foreign policy b/c clear definitions are needed to lay grounds for effective policy- what is allowed, what isn't- also prevents ability to do research

CP

  • How does the Consult CP kill education- infinite regression- too many combinations of actors you could consult- shifts debate to irrelevant net benefits and distracts away from plan focus; also amendments to plan are bad b/c they are unpredictable without specific solvency advocates b/c we can't search for answers b/c lit doesnt exist
  • How Are consults irrelevant- you cant produce evidence that japan would do anything to change the plan- hence it does nothing and is irrelevant
  • How Does the Perm Not steal Neg Ground- i would argue without a perm you steal the aff ground b/c you dont functionally do anything different from the aff with the CP- we dont steal neg ground b/c it wasnt yours to begin with

It's been one week since the 2AC was posted, and DebateForLife hasn't been online in 4 days. As much as I am enjoying this round, at what point do we declare vmanAA738 the winner by default?
