  1. 2NC is 2431 words, eh the 2AC was 2446 words (both using Verbatim Stats). Order is DA, Leadership, Plastics 2NC Green.docx 2NC that is Yellow.docx 2NC which is Cyan.docx
  2. Yeah doesn't that just say that the US has interests in trying to increase Indo-Pak relations and stop extremism.
  3. "Kashmir is a challenge that the United States can neither avoid nor resolve. India has the power to rebuff unwelcome U.S. involvement" - that's from your Perkovich 10 card. So doesn't that show that 1) India doesn't want Murcan involvement 2) India can reject Murcan involvement and 3) Murca can't solve Kashmir disputes... For 1) and 2), its not showing that they don’t want involvement or will reject it, but that if it’s too much, then they can tell us to back off and we will listen (meaning no conflict between us). For 3) they can’t go in there and physically stop it, but they can use leadership to repair foreign relations. That still agrees with 2) tho, right? Sure, and it supports no conflict Where does it say no conflict? 2NC after this
  4. Leadership How does any of your US-China impact ev account for talks last month between Obama and Xi? It doesn’t. Yours talk about how there will be social co-op (to deal with social problems), and mine talk about military impacts, so mine doesn’t account for your talks cause yours aren’t pertinent. "At the same time, a stable and predictable China-U.S. relationship will most likely ensure a less uncertain match-up during the power transition in the United States. The Beijing Summit helped ease tension in the Asian Pacific Region." "With pronounced tensions over a China-Japan confrontation, maritime disputes, and a reinforced U.S.-led alliance network; the Asian Pacific Region has seen a larger increase in military budgets and arms races than other regions. The Asia-Pacific Region is where China and the United States interact the most. Therefore, the two countries’ reaffirmation of cooperative rather than conflicting policies helped ease some of these tensions." - our card. How does that not discuss such issues? "Kashmir is a challenge that the United States can neither avoid nor resolve. India has the power to rebuff unwelcome U.S. involvement" - that's from your Perkovich 10 card. So doesn't that show that 1) India doesn't want Murcan involvement 2) India can reject Murcan involvement and 3) Murca can't solve Kashmir disputes... For 1) and 2), its not showing that they don’t want involvement or will reject it, but that if it’s too much, then they can tell us to back off and we will listen (meaning no conflict between us). For 3) they can’t go in there and physically stop it, but they can use leadership to repair foreign relations. That still agrees with 2) tho, right? Plastics Where is the warrant in the BISE card? And being cited by the EU doesn't count. It talks about invasive species found in Europe, and the effects seen from them. "About 10 000 alien species have been registered in Europe. Some of these species were introduced on purpose and remain economically important. However, a proportion of the alien species established cause significant damage to native biodiversity…" - BISE. Doesn't that support that some alien species are good, and only a proportion of the species are damaging? Also, where does it even say that there are any negative effects seen in Europe. On Mmom 8, why can't I find the original article for this on the internet? The link's broken. Could you show me the actual article? Your Baronsky et al 11 card says "there are clear indications that losing species now in the 'critically endangered' category would propel the world to a state of mass extinction," so how does this account for species that aren't critically endangered? I mean, this card doesn’t necessarily, but how do we know that some of the species lost aren’t endangered? I mean if we have species loss and there are tons of endangered ocean creatures then I mean… You say, "how do we know that some of the species lost aren’t endangered?", but a better question is "how do we know that some of the species lost are critically endangered?" (Note both "are" and "critically") Anyways, only 16 critically endangered species exist, 4 of which are marine species. Two of them are whales (dolphins are whales), and you claim whales aren't important. So by your logic, the loss of two turtle species (that are already decimated) will cause mass extinction? Source: https://www.worldwildlife.org/species/directory?direction=desc&sort=extinction_status Lol you say that "overfishing is hyped up by eco-scientists" but in your Denoon 6 card you say that "The cause: the disappearance of species due to overfishing, pollution, habitat loss, and climate change," when referring to the "apocalypse of 2048." Contradiction much? No because my card accounts for the combination of all effects not just overfishing. Okay whatever, but Denoon 6 says overfishing is important to the cause of the deaths/extinctions of fish species, correct? Where does the Walker 14 card say that biodiversity loss causes food insecurity? Thanks to biod loss, we are doing thing unsustainably now and we must commit to saving BioD to save health Quotes from the card, please? Where is the warrant in the Brown 9 card? “For many years I have studied… trends and their interactions. The combined effects of those trends and the political tensions they generate point to the breakdown of governments and societies. Yet I, too, have resisted the idea that food shortages could bring down not only individual governments but also our global civilization. I can no longer ignore that risk” so studies. Brown says "Yet I, too, have resisted the idea that food shortages could bring down not only individual governments but also our global civilization. I can no longer ignore that risk." - doesn't that show that it's only a risk? Also, does "Eh" mean you concede no warrant (for the other cards)?
  5. Neolib 1. Do you concede the link? 2. Do you concede alt solvency? Leadership 1. Where is the warrant in the Walton 7 card? 2. What were your responses to the China turn? 3. How does any of your US-China impact ev account for talks last month between Obama and Xi? 5. "Kashmir is a challenge that the United States can neither avoid nor resolve. India has the power to rebuff unwelcome U.S. involvement" - that's from your Perkovich 10 card. So doesn't that show that 1) India doesn't want Murcan involvement 2) India can reject Murcan involvement and 3) Murca can't solve Kashmir disputes... Plastics 1. Where is the warrant in the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service 12 card? 2. Where is the warrant in the BISE card? And being cited by the EU doesn't count. 3. Where is the warrant in the Mmom 8 card? EDIT: Why can't I find the original article for this on the internet? The link's broken. Could you show me the actual article? 4. Your Baronsky et al 11 card says "there are clear indications that losing species now in the 'critically endangered' category would propel the world to a state of mass extinction," so how does this account for species that aren't critically endangerd? 5. Lol you say that "overfishing is hyped up by eco-scientists" but in your Denoon 6 card you say that "The cause: the disappearance of species due to overfishing, pollution, habitat loss, and climate change," when referring to the "apocalypse of 2048." Contradiction much? 6. Where does the Walker 14 card say that biodiversity loss causes food insecurity? 7. Where is the warrant in the Brown 9 card?
  6. Where in your Fettweis 11 card does it say TECH leadership? For that matter, anywhere in those cards? Doesn't matter if it's tech leadership or not. US tech leadership is a subset of US leadership... In Yoshihara and Holmes, 09 who says that US influence trades off with Chinese soft power? "Chinese fears that America's "overwhelming soft power influence" might negate China's engagement strategy" "Although China had long wished to give full play to its own soft power in the region, because it did not possess adequate capabilities, it could only watch the United States reverse its negative image in the Asia-Pacific region" Why is China the only country that can solve Indo-Pak? Like why cant the US? I'll explain why the US can't solve in the 2NC/1NR. How does Cizdziel 14 say that Japan is leading ocean exploration??? Eh I'll read a better uniqueness card in the 2NC/1NR. Just out of curiosity, how many times have you hit this aff before? And lol im thinking of using those BioD impact cards that you posted a few days ago against you... Times hit = 0. Don't worry, those cards have easy answers anyway.
  7. 2400/1500? Attached in yellow, cyan, and green highlighting. EDIT: 2 off 1NC Cyan.docx 1NC Green.docx 1NC Yellow.docx
  8. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think Japan is in the SCS; I think that would be a Senkaku/Diayo/ECS impact turn. I think.
  9. Why is species extinction bad? Can you clarify? Species as in BioD or as in like human species? Yeah, in the context of biodiversity. EDIT: Whoops three more questions Timeframe on biodiversity? Timeframe on US-China war? Will the plan increase US-China relations?
  10. Okay follow-up questions. Due to the fact that this is a novice round, what is the cost of your plan? How much plastic needs to be removed to solve for your impacts? Why is species extinction bad? Has the United States federal government/NOAA shown any interest into the Ocean Cleanup Foundation? Do you perceive China to be a threat to the United States?
